Wednesday, October 31
Best. Town Meeting. EVER.
My recovery from the recent serial RP adventure I haven't finished writing yet wasn't complete, so I took the skeleton jokes in stride.
First: October 30th is now Steelhead Flag Day. Our manager, TotalLunar Eclipse, announced that we would adopt one of Baron Wulfenbach's versions of the Steelhead Flag I had originally drafted. The choice was between the original blue stripe at the bottom or a vibrant violet stripe.
"Is our lake blue or violet?"
"Right now it's RED!"
Second: Lunar unveiled the 3-D map of the Steelhead Harbor District which will border the current sim's Northern edge. Rustic, mountainous, and beautiful rivers. Even better: I convinced Miss Laval to take a prime spot there between two rivers. Two more sims are on the drawing board..soon we will be an analogue to the North Pacific Coast!
Third: Caledon has running trains. We'll have running ferries.
Fourth: In recognition of my (sometimes misguided) attempts to promote the town for the past six Grid-years (one year Real Time) I was tapped on the shoulder to be a Steelhead Councilor. I will represent the Foundation, and all my fellow Steelheaders, at those super-secret community planning meetings where we are required to where silly hats and greet each other in elaborate handshakes.
All in all I was so happy that I would have cried, if I still had tear ducts.
I have a lot more on my plate. Our Deva is getting angry and is drafting a schedule of which family members can mischief where and when. Qli is conflicted over the most recent spat of drama with the Muses. Koen's tongue-bathing in preparation for Neko Night at Kokopelli on Friday. And I have to explain how Qli and I escaped that haunted house with just my bones on.
But in the meantime I have pumpkins to carve and trick-or-treaters to scare.
Happy Hallowe'en and a Blessed Samhain
