Back to SLuburbia
So, Jerremy and I sold off all of our plots of land this summer and moved into a shiny new Linden Home. (We think the schools will be better for our prim son, Blocky.)
We just got one house under my account, since you can't specify that you want two next to each other. Maybe we'll get a second for ... I'm not sure. Storage? It would have been so cool if Jerremy and i had been able to get two right next to each other. However, we lucked out and got one that has a lake view. And a neighbor with a cow.
It's been a good "staging area" so far. For me at least. You see, I forgot to set the land to our group. Which meant that Jerremy couldn't set it as his home location. And he hadn't saved a landmark. So, my darling husband has been wandering the neighborhood, unable to find our home again in the sea of look-alike houses.
It reminds me of a story I heard a while back about a man in France (?) who rented an apartment, went out shopping and couldn't remember the address to his new apartment. He wandered around the city, searching for it for a long time. I'm not sure how long, but it was apparently long enough for the media to notice. (I'm looking for the article on Google because it was a true story and it made me very sad. Almost as sad as I felt when I realized Jerremy has been SL homeless for weeks and did not say anything to me.)
To be honest, a 512 Linden Home plot makes me feel a little cramped - with only 94 prims free after rezzing a pose stand, script scale couch and bed. But, now that we have "Rift Raff Free"* Premium Sandboxes, I'll be able to let loose once in a while.
*Well, that's how *I* would describe them if I was in charge of writing them up for the SL web site.
