The Return of Tay
I was in Spangle putting out column when, out of the blue, Tay IMed me. I hadn't seen him for a year or more. He wasn't sure I'd remember him - heh. "Remember that time in Goguen you got yelled at by the Lindens for running around naked?" "Yeah, I got banned 3 days for that :(" He certainly has high spirits. We talked a bit then he came to Spangle and I updated him a little on some of the changes. He started when SL started, when there were 8 sims or less. His inventory is a time capsule. He started dragging things out, showing me old snapshots and wearing old avatars, playing old sound bites and gestures. Finally we went to Goguen and went up to 250 m so he could show me his cave. We stood there. "Region FULL!" That really didn't happen much in times past. We went to Plum and went up in the air and he rezzed the cave. It's for tinies - so he turned into a rabbit and I put on my jackalope. I snapped that pic then rezzed a snotling-on-a-stick to roast over the fire, but everything poofed and we fell to earth. He gave me his cave and I went off to eat dinner.
As I had figured he's been in WoW all this time.
I got home late (3?) after jin-shinning, having my hair cut (Sean was sick from the dye in a contrast MRI of his lower back), and grocery shopping. Frank is away on Monday, and I begged him to cut me some slack this time as I had a hard week.
I completely neglected Enjah, as I was part-time in Photoshop making textures and part-time listening to Tay, who will probably disappear for another year. Tomorrow is Teri's opening (crap, I was going to put things up for the Photo Studio), and finishing up for the Combat Cards launch. I should be able to get in there tomorrow morning to add things to that gallery. I realised I had done a commission for the owner, once, who is a furry Gorean - a somewhat rare breed. Well, a VERY rare breed. Hard to imagine, Not sure I ever saw him in person, just talked in IM, I think.
