Dixon has left Second Life and the truth is, I only knew him for about six months. And it is also true that I never had any deep conversations with him. However, like a lot of people I felt like I knew Dixon. I suppose if you are going to leave Second Life, you should do it the way Dixon did. There really isn’t much else you can say.
Lacey and I hung out at The Line most of the afternoon. We chatted briefly about Dixon leaving but I don’t think she wanted to talk about it anymore than I did. Magi came online for a few mintues, but she didn’t feel like talking either. People dropped in, some of them checking to see if what they had read was true, but they didn’t really know what to say.
Last night, Ali arrived and carried on with the regular show. I know from chatting with her earlier that she wasn’t really in the mood but she did a good show. Aynnie was there, Darrko was there, Leeana and our best customers where there. But Magi didn’t come.
Wildwood Wiles was there too and we chatted briefly. When I first met Wild I thought he was “crazy as a squirrel in a coffee can” (that is an expression from CNBC’s Jeff Macke). Since that first impression, I’ve discovered that he is a friend of both Magi and Iron, and that says alot of positive things to me. Anyway, last night I learned that he is a writer and I read some of his stuff. Wild is a very good writer and I really enjoy his work. And that just goes to prove, you can’t judge an avatar by what they say. Hehe.
While I was hanging out with Lacey, I contacted Geo Meek. We chatted about the movie I’m planning to make but mostly about the first video I’m planning to shoot. The video will be a screen test for the movie. And that brought up the issue of actors. I’m going to need three male avatar actors to compete for the romantic lead in my movie.
It’s funny that I’m thinking about the movie. Part of me just wants to throw in the towel on everything, the hosting, the expeditions, the movie, everything… and find a wealthy husband. Maybe I should just be a trophy wife. Maybe I could enjoy just shopping and decorating and planning the entertainments.
