It's my Rez Day and everything is going to hell.
(Hey, look at my cattle!)
It started this morning, with my RL cat Clover chewing through my laptop charger. Actually it was my BACKUP laptop charger, because she chewed through the first one a couple of months ago. So I had to drag myself to the Apple store to buy another one. Um, BAD DAY to go to the Apple store. There were about 9,000 people there buying the new iPad. OOCH. Calm down, people. SHEEEESH. You would think it was the second coming of Christ or something.
So an hour and $81 later I returned home with a new charger and logged in, only to discover that SL will not let me TP anywhere or REZ anything. Gosh, what beautiful irony. ("Happy REZ Day!") No matter how many times I logged in and out, I still couldn't rez anything. I found out the hard way by trying to rez a bowl of 1600L Meeroos food. It vanished with the message "Unable to rez an object."
**sigh and sad face**
Now I'm worried my Meeroos are going to starve and run away because I can't rez their food. That's sad, especially because when I went to check them I almost fell on the ground because OH MY GAWD THEY BAKED ME A REZ DAY CAKE!!!
They've been digging up little presents for me all day — even a birthday card! AWWW! I have to give the Meeroos creators props for that little trick. That's pretty cool.
I'm a little stunned that I've been in SL for FOUR YEARS — WOOOO! That's a little disturbing. I don't have any big plans for today, nor do I want any. Usually I go out and splurge on something fun and slightly expensive . . . LIKE OH MY GAWWWD THESE NEW UNICORNS FROM WHITE OAK EQUINES:
. . . but times are a little tight for me this year. It almost makes me wish I was one of those bold "Hi! I'm a blogger! Can I please have one of your unicorns so I can blog it?" bloggers, but I'm not. It's just not how I usually roll.
UPDATE: THANK YOU, MEARA!
She got me the unicorn! YAY! I love it SO MUCH! Now if I could just get rid of my robot face!
And that wasn't a hint up there, I swear!
Getting back to celebration ideas, I thought about setting up a stripper pole with a tip jar and putting on a little show for all my friends who have been begging to see me naked, and then everyone could drink champagne and hoot and holler and shove lindens in my G-string . . . but then I got scared that SL wouldn't let me rez — and would subsequently EAT — my sort of expensive stripper pole. Hey, don't judge! Every girl should have one!
So I nixed that idea.
Anyway. Enough about all that.
I had intended to include a bunch of trippy St. Patrick's Day stuff I found on Marketplace in this post but I'm just realizing that all those pictures combined with the above paragraphs full of hand-wringing would make this post 100 miles long. So watch for it in the next post, which I'll start in a second. I just need to run and make a cocktail.
• For my special day, I decided to deck myself out in this lovely Gentle Fairy Green Gown by Angelwing. I got it at Fashion For Life. It was a mere 100L. I love you, Angelwing, for making beautiful things that I can afford. The gown includes a head garland and wings (not pictured).
