People from Other Countries

I started thinking about people from other countries tonight. My friend Franz had a piano and I started to play Beethoven on it. I really like to play the piano. Franz sat and listened dressed in, shall we say, a slightly informal attire. Anyway as I was playing I started thinking of all the people I meet from Europe. I used to think people from Germany were very good at engineering things but never realized how complicated the German culture is and how complicated people can be. As I played I realized that people in the US are really sort of simple and easy to figure out. We elect people for office who think they are in a bad cowboy movie and don't understand why the rest of the world gets upset with us. Well maybe now we put someone in who has more sense - maybe people will start liking people in the US more, at least I hope so.

I think that is why it is good to have friends all over the world, at least that is what I have learned. Well enough of that. (This picture to the right makes me look like a crazed vampire.)

It was very nice to be in a homey place and that is what this house feels like. I am not sure "homey" is a real word but I think it must be. Homey or homie? Hommy? no. Homey must be a word. Some languages have really good words that mean "a home like comfortable atmosphere" so maybe someone has a suggestion.

Franz and I were talking about being one year old tonight. SL is so surreal in some ways. I don't like to say anything is "surreal" because it is used so often by people who don't have a clue what surrealism is all about. But I do feel that life in SL is another level of reality or something. When I first started I would have dreams that I was rezzing to a new place or something like that. That may have been because I stayed up so late inworld. Anyway that's my blog tonight.

Happy Holidays

Well this time of year everybody is busy with things. Even if you are a pagan there is a holiday soon, Yule. They sometimes say people get real depressed this time of year. I am real lucky and have nothing to feel depressed about. In fact I am rather happy, so much so that I took a picture in this Santa Hat. My friend Franz gave me the hat. He is going to take some time away from SL so I will miss him.

The other day I was at a kiss auction to auction kisses to raise money for a SIM named Chiaroscuro. I forgot to take a picture but it was decorated very nicely for the event. I must not be the kissable type, or else it was late and people were auctioned out or something because my bids were, well how shall I put it? - not so high. But fortunately my friend Leigh came to the rescue.

Well I hope everyone is happy, healthy, etc. and has a happy holiday. I will try to put more interesting things in my blog, this was sort of a dulls-ville blog. In fact as I am writing it I am amazed at how totally dull it is. I guess this will be my New Year's Resolution - to make the blog more exciting. Well bye for now.

Sometimes You Have to Be Kind of Crazy

Well I came back to SL after several days. Then I thought I should write some stuff. But then I started thinking that maybe I would sound like a stuffy person. Then I started thinking that I should not worry what I thought people would think. We are all so funny, we think what people will think. When I talk to my friends I can only say what I can type. And I think my friends can "read between the lines" sometimes but it is almost like a new way of communicating.

I guess I am just thinking too much.

Language is such a strange thing. We use words and hope the power inside of them can express our souls. I guess humans invented language as a tool just like we invented hammers and knives and such. Language is very good but sometimes it is not perfect.

I am hoping that my friends don't think I am going off into cloud 9 or something.

The other night I went to a strip contest. My friend Leigh was at it. He didn't win the contest but it was good to try. Also I talked a lot to my friend Franz. I think sometimes you just have to not worry and dance a crazy dance. Well that is all I can think of saying.
