Enough wind with the snow to cover all the little Karma footprints.
Karma wasn't in the mood to walk in it, either, for some reason. Didn't even turn around on her way in to look for her footprints to eat. Winter blahs? ROFL!
We got 7-10 inches by the time it finally quit, I guess.
Beautiful sunny morning and the grumbly scraping of the little plow is a comforting sound.
Caroline will be here this afternoon. I have already gathered all the trash and picked up all the cat toys. ;) Spent yesterday reading mostly.
I did watch the Heroes finale. They are getting back to the good vs. evil--but--Sylar is now supposed to be a good guy--a hero? Interesting. At least I can still follow the plot on Heroes. I've gotten very confused on Lost. Lost on Lost--hehe! I will watch because they are supposed to wrap everything up and all the mysteries will be solved--or so they claim. ;)
Oh! I did peek a little on Second Life. It seemed like all the places they suggest a person could go seem to be places to spend money. They want you to buy-buy-buy, as far as I can see. Obviously an American made game--hehe! I even tried to go to this monastery for spiritual retreat--they wanted to sell you robes to wear and I couldn't figure out how to even sit down. Didn't see other people, either, anywhere I went. But then I didn't go to the dance clubs or places like that--hehe!
Honestly--found it hard to navigate and doesn't look like you'd get much out of it without spending real life money to buy Linden dollars (fake, cyber money). There is a way to set up shops and sell products and services, apparently. People can buy property and homes. Can go on vacations to the beach or mountains--but everything seems to cost Linden dollars. People from real world jobs do gather for meetings in cyber space--but I am sure they pay a fee for that, too. Be cheaper than flying people all over and paying for motels--true.
I wondered what the draw was. I still do. I am basically house-bound and enjoy the contacts that I have made online--but I guess I am too poor to afford a second life--ROFL! And even if I had the money--I am just too much the practical Scandinavian to spend real money for pretend goods and property, I guess. :)
Okay--okay--I have to stop chuckling and pull myself together here. Totally cracked myself up. :)
Have a really great day in your real life!! :):)
