Out With the Old, In With ....?

Ed was up bright and early this first morning taking what will probably be his last look round the London sims for a while. There's virtually no ' lag' at this time of day and Ed quite enjoyed himself flying at pavement level around the deserted streets. It reminded him of his carefree days as a young av when that dreaded word was rarely spoken in the capital. But then, as with second life in general you tend only to remember the good times.

Ed was partying hard last night, first with his friends at the UGC where he saw in the New Year, then moving on to the Coach and Horses pub for their fireworks display before returning to the UGC until it closed. However, Ed wasn't ready for bed quite yet. Opening his map to look for other likely places to continue the revelry, he settled on a familiar one, the Blarney pub in SL Dublin where an 'all-niter ' was under way.

Sadly Ed didn't get a single hug or kiss over the entire festive season. He did however, get some wonderful gifts and had a joyful time in the company of his friends, so he doesn't feel unloved. The year's end is usually a time not only to reflect, but also to look ahead. Ed has resolved to spend less 'unproductive time' in world. He really wants to get back to being creative and learning new SL skills. Although he will continue writing and is grateful for all the help he has received, Ed has felt for a while now that his second life is getting a bit too repetitive. So to-day he repacks his inventory and moves on.

And there's a hand my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o thine
And we'll tak a right guid-willie waught,
For auld lang sine.
