I've Been A Bad, Albeit Busy, Girl

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! For some reason, I've felt like I was extremely busy...and now I realize that I have been busy procrastinating posting anything on this blog. So, I apologize for the completely unacceptable lack of updates.

What have I been busy with, you ask? Well, I can try to tell you, I suppose. But mostly, it seems like the last couple of weeks have flown by in such a flurry of activity, that I'm not quite sure I can remember all of it. I'll give it a shot though, yes? Here we go...

First, Guy and I hosted our very first party at our home on Balboa Beach. We had so much fun with all of the preparations, but wanted everything to be perfect, so we spent alot of time on it. We were so pleased with the turn out! So many of our friends were able to make it and we stayed up until the wee hours dancing and laughing...I think a few even hung around long after I finally had to trade my dancing shoes for a pillow. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to attend....especially those of you across the pond who fought the time zone monster to be there.

Then, Babyhoney Bailey made the decision to relinquish her Miss SL Universe crown. Rosie Shark and I were enlisted to interview Bho and Frolic Mills (Miss SL Universe founder) for It was fascinating to work side-by-side with Rosie and we were up very late documenting the drama and writing our article. You can read more about it here. Also, I just want to mention that it was great to find a new friend in Rosie, this girl is utterly fabulous. Be sure to check out her blog, Mean Girls Guide to SL.

But mostly, I've been having the best time meeting all kinds of Twittery, Plurky friends. It is so much fun to use other Social Networking outlets to broaden your SL horizons. As Codie and I discussed, SL on it's own is a horrible social networking device. There is no real way to connect with people of like interests, so these other outlets provide that opportunity. I can't tell you how many kind, generous, interesting, intelligent and ridiculously talented people I have met since I picked up the Twitter and Plurk habit. I credit the two photos in this post to one of these new friends, Jessyka Richard. She turned me on to the walking-on-hands AO and the spoon-on-the-nose trick...and you know how I love these neat little gizmos! Seriously, though, I am honored to have met each and every one of you, my dear Twitter/Plurk family. *smiles*

Also, one new something that I am really excited about it Codie's new sim, Rouge. The uber-talented Eshi Otawara is designing it, and while I won't give away any details - both Codie and Eshi have insisted that it remain a secret until it's completion - I can tell you that it is Fantastic with a Capital F! I am on the edge of my seat waiting to post some pictures here. It will be soon, I'm told, and there will be a fabulous Grand Sim Opening party to show it off. Stay tuned!

Oh, AND I celebrated my first Rez Day on Saturday! Yay me! I've really come to love my Second Life and all of my Second Life friends. Thanks to all of you who have made this so special to me...Guy, Tucor and Codie, I love you most of all.
