It's a good thing I watched TV with my nieces when they were tots or I would never have been able to come up with the title for today's post. On the cartoon Dragon Tales, dragons transport small children to a magical land where everyone speaks in incredibly annoying voices. For this blog post, a dragon transported me to a magical land where the motto is: "Come for the mesh! Stay for the va-jay-jay!"
This picture was taken at Weird, Mesh Mellows which is lovely example of the highly detailed and amazing things that can be created with mesh. Also, there are a lot of decorative things and flowers shaped suspiciously like... well you just have to look. Maybe I was seeing things.
This was the only picture I got of my time exploring there. You can't really see the ride-able dragon I'm perched on. Sorry. I have been having a ton of trouble taking pictures without crashing in the newest official viewers. But, I vacuumed out my PC tower, so obviously, I have done everything I can possibly do on my end to fix the situation.

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.
