Geeks Shall Inherit the SLEarth!

So this is a post that’s nearly a week overdue, but First Life has been kicking me in the buns the last few days and taking up too much of my time. Still, better late than nerdver, amirite?

(You don’t want to know how hard I laughed at that terrible wordplay!)

My lovely, luminous, laundry machine crashing soul-sister Raznay informed me that Geek Pride Day is/was celebrated on May 25th, which – as a card carrying nerdslice of the highest order – I was terribly vexed to be unaware of! I mean, if you ask me, Geek Pride Day should have been back on May 4th, but that day’s already dedicated to some Star Wars film franchise that probably no one’s ever heard of. I think it’s about space or something. ;)

So May 25th it was, and I missed it entirely. Curses! But thanks to the wonderful, frugal-minded members of the SL Frees & Offers group, I rounded up some lovely geek swag without spending a penny. I did, however, manage to fill up my inventory once more with a truly astounding number of parcels and packages. Lucky boards and their ilk are ridiculously addictive. Who knew? They’ve been around for an age-and-a-half, but I genuinely paid them no attention prior to this week, and now they haunt me in my dreams. And true to form, now I have aims on creating a frequently-updated list of all the Lucky Boards / Chairs and Midnight Mania offers on the grid, because it’s good to have goals and if I call it an official “blog project”, then my endless round-robining will be all legit for research purposes and stuff.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!

Now I’m sure the folks in the public sandboxes I frequent just love watching me get nekkid on my lofty platform in the sky, but sad news for them: I’m moving on! This weekend is dedicated to finally checking out the Fab Free 30 Days list, which I may have actually aged out of at this point since the information generally states that the gifts are for avies “under 30 days” in age. Oopsie! But even if that doesn’t work out, I’ve got a nice cache of clothing and accouterments, and I feel confident in spending less time freebie-scouring (and ultimately, package-opening) and more time exploring the grid. I know, I know – I’ve said it all before! So let’s make a pact: if you see me out and about slapping Midnight Manias and Lucky Boards ad infinitum, I happily give you permission slap my ass with equal fervor. A win-win for all!

Oh! And a fancy bit of news: I got myself a domain name the other day! So now my blog is located at EverAfterrSL.com. There were initially some tricksy shenanigans with the RSS and WordPress feeds, wherein those who were subscribed to the old URL weren’t getting updates, but I think it’s all sorted out now. If you’re not getting new posts in your WordPress Reader, please un-follow and re-follow my blog and it should fix the issue. RSS feeds should be re-subscribed to http://everafterrsl.com/feed/.

May the 25th be with you, and Geeks FTW! ♥
