Preparations still continue for July 1st...
Thursday, June 21, 2007
Several Blogpower members are now regular visitors to our awards venue in Second Life. I am missing a lot of sleep chatting to them because of time differences, but it's fun. Welshcakes has run into technical difficulties, but we are hoping that Ian Appleby at Imagined Community will be able to help her out.
Continuing the tradition of naming my collection of boats, planes and airships in Second Life after the women of the Blogpower cooperative, here is the latest vessel, a 124 metre long airship cruise liner, the Limoncello. She currently floats majestically above my land at an altitude of 700 metres.
Let's hope Ian can help Welshcakes see her namesake. I have built a bar in her ballroom for after the ceremony and hope to see you all there for a beer. Here's a picture of that, with me wearing one of the tuxedos I have distributed to our male Blogpowerers so that they can try to live up the the efforts being made by the women.
I must remember to lock the controls of the airship first though. Blogpower members have already crashed the SS Ruthie and the Lady Ellee, and sunk the Lovely Liz in their enthusiasm to "have a go" in this virtual world.
The Limoncello looks lovely :) I bet she'll love it.
You're such an affable host. Who else would be so understanding about having his boats/airships crashed?

How do we get to the bar prior to the event. Thunderdragon teleported me there, but I have no idea how to get there without that assistance.
Finally you are ranked number one in Google for Last Ditch. It was irritating that the other guys were ahead of you.
Thanks again for all your hospitality.

Tux received OK, Cheers Tom!
Not sure how a prole like me is going to fit in with all this class...

I'm going to have to take a back seat I'm afraid. I'm now doing a gig on July 1st.
