Today is my birthday. Getting older doesn’t hold any trauma for me. I treated myself to a few hours at the bookstore. I bought Al Gore’s new book, The Assault on Reason. I started a whole new life.
Yes, I finally entered Second Life, created an avatar, and even “talked” with a helpful guide on where I can go for cool hair styles. It’s a wonderful life so far — I’m a slim-hipped, elfin-haired tomboy (so NOT me). The downside to this whole new life is that it is addictive. My planned hour or so turned into a four-hour marathon! All I know is, that if my sis, azmutt, discovers this she’ll go crazy. She’s the type who can spend hours on those computer games that have you trying to figure out where to go next. Second Life is all about that!
