Hm, stuff, whee!

Alright, so how does this Second Life thing work, then? I mean, I know how it works, generally, but surely I can make my Newly Minted avatar look somewhat less generic? Without turning her into a freaky My Little Pony or something. Also, where the hell is the map or whatever? WHERE AM I? How can I tell? It should be like video games, where you can just have a little map overlaying wherever you are the whole time. Also? I think this program may cause my computer to crash. Because it is large and my computer is lame. Bleh.

Hem. So why am I on it at all, you ask, if I don't know what I'm doing and am being grumpy about it? Well, because Terry is going to be on Second Life in October, doing a Q&A and things, and surely it would be fun to observe that! So, um...I have to get my character some better hair, yo. She can't be seen in her current fright-wig! Look at me, being vain about my avatar. Hee.

ANYway, I assume eventually if I play around with it enough I'll get it right. I've done the avatar-world thing a couple of times, but it's been quite awhile.

In more exciting news, I saw The Dark Knight on IMAX today, with two lovely SFers, at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. And it was FANTASTIC on the gigantic screen. Hooray, looking down from tops of buildings!

And then afterwards we went to Starbucks until Amy had to leave, and then Rebecca and I went to Jaleo, which still has divinely yummy food and heavenly sangria, and it was very mmm. And fun. Lovely to meet and hang out with them both. Yay!

And now: bed.
