OK…OK…I arrived late (11.15pm UK time). My excuse is that I ended up in a conversation with the RL Mr. Keng about the Goodreads website….we’re both voracious readers…and I lost track of time! So I was late. A woman’s prerogative. 😉
And it was Monday. First workday of the week, so people aren’t, maybe, plugged into SL. But the surgery didn’t attract a crowd. Never mind. Undettered, I shall try again at a future date. How does Friday sound? I think I should try again, and basically amke myself available for the entire evening, suitable to both UK and US time zones.
I got to thinking about how we ‘lose’ ourselves in written fiction, and equally ‘lose’ ourselves in SL. We become our own authors, directors of our own film, in SL. We make the action, make the scenes, direct how our own story unfolds.
I noted that I’d missed an ‘Abba’ gig at Eden’s floating stage, but that The Monkees were appearing (I must source a wooly hat!) this Saturday (22nd) at 1pm, SLT. That’s the very early hours of Sunday, my time. Never mind. I’m setting an alarm! I’m getting up early. I’m logging in! Because I’m anxious to get some feedback from you, the readers, but because I’m also a big Mike Nesmith fan, by osmosis, Mr Keng has exposed me to his First national Band albums (don’t ask me how I ended up married to a guy just so retro! 🙂 ). Oddly enough, Nesmith recently collaborated with Iain Matthews, formerly of Matthews Southern Comfort, who the RL Mr. Keng is going to see in Kinross in April, And tonight, the RL Mr. Keng downloaded Iain Matthews latest album, The Art of Obscurity. This is why my other half doesn’t do SL regularly….too busy going to gigs! 🙂
I logged out at midnight, and had just seen a couple float by on their yacht. Never mind, I shall try again with another surgery. Hopefully I can get my photo taken with a wooly hatted Mike Nesmith at the weekend! 🙂
