The Birthday Party is like any other family festivity: you find yourself tripping over dull relatives chirping the same-old same-old; (alleged) Funny Uncles come out of the woodwork, while sharp-eyed old biddies tut-tut at all and sundry. There's always somebody's dad making a long and boring keynote speech, and a lot of nay-sayers neighing about it afterwards, and pie fights, yummy. And the Attention-seeking Cousin is there with an inappropriate gift, and her Attention Deficient cronies are all ooh-ing and aah-ing about it, as if this doesn't happen single every time there's a get-together with a capital G.
This is why I don't do family dos, as a general rule. However, handsome hunk and part-time purveyor of cold drinks Eli Schlegal offered to tp me to UpsideDown and I couldn't say no.
If you've ever wondered what the Linden Homes look like - you know, the ones touted on the 'Premium Account' ad? - wonder no more. Here they are, in mini version. At least, I hope so. Not sure how those A frames can possibly be cam friendly. The designs reflect the same cutting-edge forethought that put 'Stop Animating My Avatar' in the 'Advanced' tab in 2.0. I took the weight off and admired the view, not sure what Eli's doing, you'll have to use your own imagination. Try to keep it PG or better.
Contradiction to see Sunman Loring's ubercool Frontier Spaceport display, it was fun just trying out the upholstery, maybe one day I'll be able to afford one of these babies for myself. Hint hint, Eli.
RL machine maker as well as to the SL creatives whose work is used in his installation - now there's a cause to get behind: giving credit where it's due, instead of tacitly passing off other people's work as your own.

The unexpected goings-on continued when we got to Portucalis.
