Curr and Skeef

In the safety of the warren

This is one key thing that makes SL special - the fact that everything's created by everyone else, not pre-canned by the original designers. Of course, that does include signs like the second one here.. beware being AFK for too long. =:D (As indeed the new CEO discovered)

An impressive Star Trek build, for roleplaying. "Have you guys seen the new teaser for the Star Trek XI movie? I actually saw it about two weeks ago and it just totally wow'ed me. Another thing was running in the back of my mind while watching that ... 'man i could totally recreate that in SL ...'

And so, with a friend, I did. I'd like to introduce the 'second trek' project ... basically building a community of star trek and sci-fi fans for role-play in a very immersive environment (visually, audibly, etc. etc.) I picked up a sim, named "Shipyard" and dedicated half of it for the RP. The other half, i'm selling as sci-fi / futuristic themed real estate."

Beer Cider recommendation for the day: Duchy Originals Dry Organic Cider. Excellent. Easily the peer of the best farmhouse ciders you'll find in the netherlands of Somerset.

I suppose this counts as a meme of sorts.. ^_^

And I moved in to the new (and furnished!) warren. It's nice. ^_^ The only photos I've been able to coax out of the ailing (it'd probably be more accurate to say "post mortem") A200 are utterly lousy, but they'll give some idea of the place.

The kitchen's inaugural dinner on Sunday night was a small ribeye steak, sprinkled with ketjap manis (Malaysian sweet soy sauce) and wasabi during cooking, joined in the pan by two thickly sliced white mushrooms, and accompanied by four Jersey Gold new potatoes, broccoli, and some asparagus, covered in portobello & madeira sauce. Happy bunny. ^_^

And I have towels! Vivid blue for the main bath towel, hot orange for the smaller one, and an adorable pink for the hand towel. Yay colors! (I've long been an advocate of dyes. We have the technology!)
