I went to Chinatown last night as it opened and has been touted as a fabulous build. It's cunningly wrought, with a duplicate upsidedown city under the city, which shows through alpha-textured puddles as a reflection. I found Max, the astronaut from Gravity in a dumpster!! Today I IMed Maddy and told her that, as I knew she wanted to give Max a home. I said we should go into Chinatown with guns blazing and rescue Max. She said, "Osprey!" Later she tried to get Jimmy to sell her Max, and I tried to get Foxy to let me stage a dumpster break. I think she did not take me seriously. Note to self: no more glue-sniffing.
I was making clothes (as usual, yawn) when Bunny IMed about an upcoming giant snail race. I zoomed off, and as Bunny said later, it was the closest race ever, as Candide was ahead all the way but I managed to beat him right at the end. w00t! Bunny offered me anything he had for sale but I chose a little snail which he didn't think was enough. He gave me a special St Valentine's edition snail carriage, that leaves heart trails in the sky. And he gave me a huge thing that has pictures taken during the race. A good thing I can rez on my neighbors' land as I have so few prims I couldn't even take these out on my own property.
Leaving a trail of broken hearts...
I'm the grey snail.
Candide later dropped by and bought a tattoo. We had a conversation about technology - he's a programmer. I'd never met him before the race - and he'll have a chance to beat me in the -- drumroll -- Giant Snail Grand National! He said he'd be there if it's at at a Euro-friendly time.
I went to a show-and-tell on Rapture, and someone started talking to me - name sounded familiar. I think he was ejected from SimCast for something that he said had been mistakenly blamed for. I wasn't there - so I don't know. He seemed very nice - I wondered if he knew I am part of SimCast and wanted to see if I had a reaction. Who knows.
