Red Wine and Chocolate

So I finally made it out of the house to do some shopping.

There’s always the danger here of buying alcohol and nothing else, which is just a recipe for trouble really, though probably fun too.  Anyway, I managed to survive that.  I got some chocolate cake and some take-away indian food too.  Ok, it’s not really a help, but I was in a hurry to get back.

You see, I think the universe is conspiring against me!

For three days, Freya and I have spent about zero time together.  Wednesday and Thursday evenings, she had meetings, and last night, she was out with her RL SO… Anyway, we planned for today to meet up about 9am…

Well first, I didn’t wake up til 10am, which didn’t help… and then you have slow morning start.  Then, at about 11:30, Freya had to take her cat to see the vet, and shop… well, it has to be done or you starve.  Then, when she got home, she fell, hit her head and has been on the sofa with pain killers since!

So, from 10am til 4pm, the universe has kept us apart!  I mean, if that’s not a conspiracy, what is?

Additional Thoughts

At least Freya didn’t throw a wobbly over last night’s post, which I showed her, of course.  I’d given her a hard time over her going out in RL and leaving me alone – which isn’t like me, but I’ve been in a bit of a weird mood lately.  I guess I should try to make it up to her and soon.

Also, I need to do something about – or for – Julia.  I still haven’t got over what happened, and knowing it’s my own fault doesn’t make it any easier.  And now that she’s cancelled my card (the SL equivalent of a friends list is Calling Cards), I know she doesn’t intend to try to win me back, at least any time soon.  Even so, I should make some kind of gesture, to show I still care.

She was a year old in SL too while she was away; November 1st.  And nobody remembered!  You know how that would feel?  I mean, I knew, but nobody else.

If I could turn back time – as in the song by Cher – would I?  I really don’t know.  Trying to balance what I had with what I now have is hard.

A Cold Morning on the Outside

It was hard waking up today.  After 10am too, when I usually wake about 6am.  I hate cold, wet miserable mornings… but at least I don’t need to ride to work today.

Anyway, I got coffee (as you do) and logged in.  People are crowded round the Welcome Area in Ahern, talking about Braniacs and sucking… most odd, though there is a vampire in the crowd, so I suppose it makes some kind of perverted sense.  As a Mentor, I suppose I should close it down, and get the talk onto more wholesome lines, but it’s a Saturday morning, and I’m in a perverse frame of mind.  Maybe some sucking wouldn’t be so bad… lol

And now some guy is hitting on me, wanting an invite to my home.  I told him where it was of course, so he can visit it – it’s Stonehenge, in Mocha, if you care – … but I’m staying at the Welcome Area with Freya and the Newbies, lol.

So there, I need more coffee… More later maybe,
