Seemed to be no Dev Team meeting - at least, I was there and didn't see anyone else. Earlier the Coda build voting had gone awry, so it was extended to Monday evening. I wound up talking to Enj and Satu about Ismay. Enj lived in Brooklyn for two years, and Satu's father has what Steven has. It was interesting hearing what both of them had to say. Spent some time smiting monsters. Yesterday I'd taken Enj to Sim Combat, which I'd just given a bit of input to - not that I know anything but the creator, Doc, wanted dopey new user input I reckon. Anyway, Enjah killed me twice. We went to see the insects in Bragg, too, and wound up sneaking around someone's house - a fabulous build in an Uru style.
"Nyah Nyah" at Art's shark of peace and love (he claims) which circles ominously in Bodega Bay. I told him it ate his duck but he didn't believe me.
I also took Enj to Parrot Island where we roamed around and even jetskied. It's changed a lot since I was there last - gets more beautiful as they clarify their vision methinks.
Tonight I flew aimlessly around (been doing that for a couple of days). Found a place called Toreador Island which I thought might somehow be interesting as I made the suits of lights, etc., except it seemed to be a vampire wedding chapel. There are tons of vampires in SL. Enj actually moved once to get away from bothersome vampires next door to her. Now she has an inventive mad scientist guy with giant moving spiders, etc. next door, and that's very cool.
Who'd've thought weddings would be so huge in SL? I have never had any interest in weddings, ever. The other day Enj took me to a place where they make food - very good-looking. I exclaimed, "You must be in demand for weddings!" And they are - with giant custom scripted cakes and everything very well-modeled but for me - eh. I have no interest. I like giant scripted spiders. I thought it would be cool to attack the tiny army men swarm with giant spiders.
Flew around and to Ahern in my ornithopter, which I fly much better when I'm sad, apparently. Flew it home and landed on a tiny patch of flat ground next to the bay. Ahern welcome area has become even more complex, with additional pavilions. They bear signs: information, games. I think the telehub will be where the pushpin is, although people are already complaining about the rooves on the builds, just in case the pavilions house the telehub. We all hate rooves as we clunk our heads for no reason as we are trying to fly off.
