Almost 40 entries in the Beach Blanket Tringo (shore-theme) contest! It closed at 5:30 and now I need to go and hang the show. The next contest? Tunnel of Love:
That's Selador and Enjah. Sel said he wanted to read it. I said, "Read it - you might have to WRITE IT." So he did! Enjah made my poster into a book, and Selador wrote the (short but snappy) book on a notecard that is inside. We had a celebratory dance-around yesterday at the Mysterio Gallery (couldn't build at Grignano temporarily due to noobie griefing). Sel is in England, Enj is in Texas, and I live in the wilds of Washington State. I proclaimed us a gang of trouble-makers, with Sel being "Johnny Trouble."
At Grignano, the noobie griefer attacked when I was in IM and couldn't really see what was going on, but he came in and I tried to be nice about it as I could see it was a matter of newness and young-ness, not a vicious nature. Salazar ported in and explained to the young man that his bullets had put us over our prim limit and caused chunks of legitimate builds to be returned into Salazar's inventory. Salazar was very nice, and today when I arrived I found the young man had been given the task of "security," which gave him a reason to behave in a mannerly way. I got him to enter the contest, which he did surprisingly well for someone who didn't know how to move his p.o.v. around.
