Towel Day Alert! Where Are You?

Dear Diary:

Towel Day 2016 has arrived and this year I decided to wear my towel to the moon.  

Every year on May 25th, Towel Day is celebrated in honour of Douglas Adams, the author of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy".

Why is the towel assumed to be a significant item for Adams fans?  In the third chapter of the book, it's stated that a towel is the " most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have".  The towel not only provides warmth but protects one from the "noxious fumes" of the galaxy. 

Every year, Uccie Poultry, the owner of PoP Shop on Marketplace, generously puts out a FREE towel for all to wear on May 25th or any other day for that matter.  Pick yours up here for yourself or here for your man and wear your towel with pride!

Good Night for now.

It's A Long Weekend For Me

Dear Diary:

Monday is a holiday for me.  On May 23rd, Canada celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday, as Victoria Day.  Although the holiday is actually May 24th, it's celebrated on the closest Monday to give everyone a long weekend.

Traditionally it's also time to open up the camp/cottage for the summer season.  Many people jokingly call it the "May two-four weekend", in reference to the actual holiday on May 24, and to the case of 24 bottles of beer needed for fortitude, to open up the camp and plan for the up coming onslaught of black flies. 

On this weekend, we get together with friends and family for a BBQ, bonfire and fireworks. So I decided I should observe this weekend in my second life too.

I invited my two closest friends, Chloe and Sam, over to my home in the tropics, for a BBQ and some cool drinks.  Sometimes the weather doesn't co-operate but this year everything is progressing smoothly.  My friends seem to enjoy sitting in the shade while I sweat over at hot grill.  Seems normal!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Good Night for now.

My Life In A Movie Poster

Dear Diary:

The Monday Meme this week is a repeat of the movie poster theme of a few years back.  I did it then and really had fun doing it so I was looking forward to trying it again.  There's always so many genres to consider but I went for the wild wild West. 

Hurray for the movies!

Good Night for now.

The Yearbook Rez Day Challenge

Dear Diary:

It was Strawberry Singh's rez day this past Monday so the meme called for a "yearbook" picture.  I always hated school yearbook pictures but this meme suggested a kinder, gentler look.

I wish I had had the forethought that Berry had of taking a pic each year on rez day.  I would have a nice album at this point. 

Good Night for now.

Time To Reconnect

Dear Diary:

This past January on her blog, Strawberry Singh posted several resolutions that we could try and follow over 2016.  On that note, I'm picking another that I think is a good one to accomplish.  It's to try and reconnect with people that have fallen away from any contact.

I have a good group of friends that have been on my list for a few years.  We see each other often and will share an email or two when not in world.  There were 3 friends that were very much a part of this group but they fell off the grid so it was up to me to try and reconnect.  I sent messages to each of them hoping to get something back.  

At this point I've heard from one.  She is very active in Second Life but not as I knew her.  She has an alt that has become more of her life than the person I knew.  But...we reconnected!

Good Night for now.

It's Because Of Second Life

Dear Diary:

I love the Monday Meme this week.  Strawberry Singh has made us think of our achievements brought about #BecauseofSecondLife.

And here is mine:

#BecauseofSecondLife I have met wonderful people from around the world with a varitey of cultures, backgrounds and lifestyles.  I appreciate the differences of all and what they've taught me

#BecauseofSecondLife I started a blog, something I've always wanted to do but never had the reason to do it

#BecauseofSecondLife I realized that people's personality is the same no matter what world they're in.  Kindness and caring are foremost in Second Life but a jerk is a jerk regardless.

#BecauseofSecondLife I have broadened my technology skills, even posting a dance video!  I have learned a few programs that I wouldn't have tried otherwise.

#BecauseofSecondLife I am aware of the incredible creativity of people and what they produce - sims, furniture, jewelry, clothing

Good Night for now.
