In the end, of course, I failed.

It is probably for the best that I gave the blogosphere no more than a day’s notice—indeed, barely gave MYSELF more than a day’s notice—before embarking on this grand adventure. I suppose I’d have a harder time living it down if I’d made a massive show of my intentions.

1. Linden Highways don't actually lead anywhere except dead ends.

2. Pushing my human body beyond its usual limits just to be clever is a bad idea.

3. Never, ever, EVER take particle ANYTHING to a Kala Pixie particle display.

More insights to come. The body craves more rest and I will not deny it.

What time is it again? Where am I? What am I doing? (Answers: 8:24 PM, Quantum Fields, dancing to DJ Apogee. I think.)

A rendering of this picture was done for the Macintosh computer, back when said computer was a little beige box with a monochrome screen. How times have changed.

So. Twelve hours into this experiment and what have I learned?

I now understand how people can lose entire days to this.

I haven't done much interacting, probably because most of my friends keep office hours. We'll see what happens as the evening advances.

At this point, though, my mind refuses to wander forward or backward but can only take in this particular moment.

I'm also prone to the sort of babble that comes out of me when I'm fatigued. So my entries should become more . . . interesting.

A mushroom garden in the belly of a rusted automaton half-submerged in the sea. I'm not even at the twelve-hour mark and I'm already hallucinating . . . I think.

I fished all night? Where does the time go?

Once again, I've lost track of sunrise and sunset. But as virtual sunsets go, this is a pretty good place to catch one.

I decided to click the Mysterious Red Phone Booth and was handed a landmark to Inspire Space Park. I explored for a bit, and a TP to the shopping area landed me a set of particle wings of most extraordinary design. Alas, TPing back to the Park left me stuck in some kind of cloudy limbo and after a few attempts to TP away, I logged out and back in to find myself underwater not far, it seems, from where the Mysterious Red Phone Booth was. So I returned and here I sit.

Okay, now I'm really confused. Or maybe not. Perhaps the sim I wandered through is set for darkness? I crossed the border into noon. How perplexing. I came across the SL Historical Museum and found some fascinating glimpses of life in this world before I arrived in it. I may well have to go back and investigate further at some point.

So the number one question to ask is . . . what the heck am I doing here?

I have wandered from my home and made my way to a stretch of highway and I'm now wandering it to see where there is to see.

I've found one place I'd like to return to with Beginning and bookmarked it accordingly.

I've wandered through the Japanese-themed Silk Waters Mountain lands that are near my home and kept going until I stumbled on a haunted house and fairgrounds.

Now I'm on a blank stretch of highway leading . . . somewhere.

I'm looking at going ahead and doing the 24 Hours in Second Life tomorrow. I plan to get up bright and early Friday morning and go to bed bright and early the following Saturday morning, which should give the body adequate time to recover.

I'll have my BlogHUD handy, for periodic updates and try to take notes for a more detailed report of my adventures.

I haven't the faintest idea what I'm going to do at this point, which makes the possibilities that much more intriguing.

I can't seem to stay a girl for long these days. I did shift back to try on a new dress I'd picked up via a FashCon announcement, but that only lasted a day or two before [livejournal.com profile] faerie_h was sadistic enough kind enough to point me to the Bare Rose shopping site. Bare Rose, as I have lamented before, is my major SL shopping addiction, because the clothes there are amazingly high in quality and insanely low in price. I grabbed a charmingly rumpled outfit called Albert and fiddled with all the combinations before settling on the red version.

And then, naturally, I called up Beginning and we went out on a date.

She dug through her inventory to come up with an outfit that she felt content with (muttering about how she really needs to do a proper sort of all the clothes she's acquired, since she went crazy with the freebie ganking in her early days) and we decided to try a different jazz club for a change. I hit search, picked one that looked interesting, but discovered that they apparently had a slightly stricter dress code than we were accustomed to. Not that we were dressed all that sloppily, and we certainly aren't lacking for formalwear in our respective inventories, but neither of us felt like changing in the street, so we decided to return at some other time.

We wandered elsewhere and finally decided that what we really wanted was somewhere quiet where we could sit together and just be. And since [livejournal.com profile] caliburnsusanto wasn't about, we decided to borrow his island.

Seems Caliburn has gone and rearranged things since our previous Isla Susanto photo session, so weren't able to find the campfire spot where we'd cuddled before. But we did find the gazebo and sat there together.

My screenshots are unable to do proper justice to the beauty of the space there, so I only snapped this one picture:

It's not that large, but I'm cutting it anyway... )

I think the thing I like about it the most is that it managed to capture one little moment when Beginning is looking at me, an odd quirk of the 'follow the mouse' gaze (which I shan't belabor, lest I unravel the seams of this peculiar tapestry.)

I am pondering the insane notion of spending 24 continuous hours in Second Life and, of course, blogging the hell out of what I find in the process. I will probably have to do it without Beginning accompanying me, so perhaps that is the reason we are gorging ourselves on each other's company while we can. I plan to let everyone know the day if I wind up doing this and am open to any suggestions as to what I might be able to do in the wee smalls of the virtual morning.
