Just got back from the Nation fancy dress party in second life. It was a lot of fun - quite a few people turned up. And I won 2nd prize. Which was nice.

I just discovered that someone is building Ankh-Morpork, and their looking for help building it.
Uh I'm still a newbie on 2nd Life, but here is the "SLURL" - http://slurl.com/secondlife/Ankh%20Morpork/91/96/40

Hi Jinx.

well i went to Elysian last night and they have set up the rose garden for Terry's session with lots of nice comfy sofas and a stage with Terry's pic!

I spent a whole lot of last night working out a Granny costume and she folds her arms, bows and looks severe.
I even have a cat called YOU although it is white with a brown face.

Yep RL job. I get paid off on 31st December. Everyone seems so annoyed by it, but the way I see it I'm getting rid of a job I was starting to hate for the end of the year and can begin a new year with a new job. Plus it helps that BP are paying for the first level of my Open University course as a result of this and if all goes well with the job hunting I'll have nearly £4000 I didn't have before as spare cash. Not bad for only being here 2 years.

...of course my wife to be already has that spent :roll: We'll see about that though :wink:
