September 10th, 2010: Moggs Oceanlane

I wake up and move my aching body awkwardly so I can look at the clock.  I’ve had this damn flu for a few days now and am bored senseless, I consider the possibility of going to work.  No. Still light-headed and a little giddy, body aches.  Guess it’ll be another day at home.  I message my boss to let her know.  I reluctantly ask her to rearrange the meeting I had to give a colleague from another department a tour of Second Life and virtual worlds. I was looking forward to sharing places and snippets of information in return for hearing the insights of a newcomer – I love seeing how new people react to the virtual environment.  Oh well, next week then.

I feed the cats and put them outside.  “Spring!”, I breathe as I see rays of beautiful, delicious sun streaming down into my garden.  It’s been bucketing down with rain for days – or weeks and I’m over it.

Tomorrow, regardless of how I feel, I’ll be attending my cousin’s wedding.  We don’t see a lot of each other but whenever we get together, we just pick up from where we left off.  I can’t wait to catch up with all of my family – these days it seems weddings and funerals are where I see them.  We are spread out all over the country but still remain pretty close and are only a phone call away if needed. Family get-togethers are mostly loud and generally fun.   I check my camera is in my bag – I always have it – except, it seems, at events where I really want it.

I tuck blankets around me, feeling a little like an old lady, and login to SL – I have a bit of a play with sculpt studio but my brain is having trouble holding a thought and I think I should just go back to bed.  I stubbornly complete a tutorial before heading back to bed.

I sigh. I’d wanted today to be full of sunshine and activity for my Two Three Sixty Five post and sadly, it’s not turned out that way… but next week… that will be full of sun and activity and I can’t wait.
