On the road, can’t make it inworld. So I did something as good – I met up with SL friends in “RL”. Erev AH5B I had dinner with Dale. Lovely lovely time – great food, great ambiance and wonderful company. 🙂 Tonight I had dinner with another friend I met first in SL. M is no longer inworld but we stay in touch. I was within an hour of his location today so we met for dinner. Again – a wonderful wonderful time. We’d not seen each other in at least 2 years. We talked and laughed and reminisced. So in a very real sense – I WAS in SL for AH5B. When I got in my car to drive home, Green Day’s “Time of Your Life” was playing on the radio. I thought it quite apt. Since I have no SL photo to share, I’ll share the music. I’ll also share my thought: I wouldn’t trade away a single moment of my SL time. It’s been 5 amazing years. I’ve grown, learned, laughed, hurt, loved, lost, lived. I’ve integrated my SLness into my RLness. I may not be inworld as much as I used to show up but believe me – SL is in my world all the time. SL has given me many of the “times of my life”.

Sometimes that’s hard for me to believe. Four years and I’m still here. So much has changed, yet so much is the same. I have nothing pithy to say, nothing interesting. Dale assures me that the tradition for a rez day is to jump naked. Dale offered to assist me in this (I suspect in the naked part, not so much in the jumping part). *grin* Unlike Chestnut, who is reveling in a new, super-duper computer which is rezzing SL on ultra, I am on the road, with only my work laptop, not my gaming computer. This machine is laggy to the nth degree in SL. Getting naked with lag? Could be a bad idea. But I figured why not? So I got up early, rezzed in, undressed, and jumped. Alone. 🙂 Here you have it – Ahuva’s naked rez day leap. The photo titles speak for themselves. Well, maybe not completely. No question but the ducks were a bit taken aback. *grin*

Started the week with a rezday (Lalo’s) and ended the week with a rezday – Marx’s. They both turned FOUR. Wow. *grin* Sooooo much older than I. 🙂 Marx spun the tunes for us and we all gathered at The Listening Room, now in its new location in Edloe. Besides the fun of the tunes Marx played and the good-natured and, occasionally, erudite, banter, I got to see some friends I’ve not seen in AGES. Had a nice long chat with someone, which is always good for the soul.

Lalo and I have re-sync’d our schedules the last few days and have been dancing. Yesterday was his rez day. We celebrated by going to Fogbound, one of our favorite dance venues. We think they have the best dances. It was a lovely relaxing evening, and Evanrude Anton was totally hot in his DJ’ing. Or when it’s the blues do I say “was totally cool in his DJ’ing”? Whichever. Evan had one great tune after another. It was a lovely way to celebrate a rez.
Tonight we got inworld just in time to catch Taunter’s last 3 songs. And she sang one she learned at my request: Leonard Cohen’s ” Dance Me to the End of Love. Ah, that was lovely Taunter. Then we headed back to Fogbound to dance to the blues. Evan was DJ’ing again, stylish in his stocking cap. As you can tell by the pics, just your typical weeknight crowd down at the bar. 🙂 Everyone loves relaxing at Fogbound.

There is nothing more fun than seeing someone’s hard work pay off. My good friend Chestnut Rau had her 4th rez day yesterday. Zha wanted to do something special and fun for Ches, so Zha arranged a surprise party. She got Zachh Cale to play piano and sing for an hour and then Marx Dudek came in to DJ and spin the tunes. Both of these folks are among Chestnut’s favorite entertainers and friends. Crap Mariner wrote a 100-word story in Chestnut’s honor and we all got to hear him read it aloud for the very first time. Scores of folk came through Zha’s gorgeous, fantastic party-build. Zha had beauty, robot-comfort, dancing and even a touch of kitsch. It was fun not only for Chestnut but for all her friends who got to meet and greet each other too. Considering that Chestnut had given strict instructions that there was to be NO PARTY, it’s a good thing we know when not to listen. *grin*
There were too many pictures to post, and far too many attendee names to list. Photos are all up on Flickr.

I try to mention rez day parties in advance, but this one was a SURPISE!!!! Daez turned 4 the other day (I know she HATES that I mentioned that but I have LOTS of friends who are WAAAAAAAY older – believe me. I have ONE friend who is… omg… 6. And another who rezzed in Dec 2004. So you are YOUNG!)
Dz wanted to make the day very very special for Daez and planned many wonderful things, among them a surprise party at The BluJnz Blu club in Honey Harbour. Noma Falta, Rocker Extraordinaire, rocked us for a solid hour. There is nothing as much fun as Noma partying, laughing and joking and teasing the guest of honor.
It wouldn’t be a dance party if we weren’t dancing on Daez’s hud. Daez has the best assortment of dances and knows how to match dance to tune flawlessly. I need to start taking videos instead of stills, so you can see the great dancing.
