Yesterday there wasn't even a notice for an evening procession. No dots on the map over the village. You know where the rest of us went :)
Tindallia Soothsayer wore her Burning Snail again, which is a breathtaking build. See her race with it in last Sunday's Giant Snail Races. After so much work it's great she can get more use out of it. Yesterday was her 5th rezzday too.
There was a big party again in Bordello so we stayed predominantly in Rabbit Hole. People were passing around congas. It was enough of a turnout that I derezzed my sneakers.
I think tonight I'll do the cowbell. It was the first thing I played at my first temple dance last year.
Earlier this week DMom2k gave me copy/trans robes she originally made in 2008. I might put down givee boxes for them during tonight's ceremony. This way no one has to ask.
It's really a shame what happened to the Lamplighters this year. You can say it's because of one man, and that's what I keep hearing, but the group in general is following blindly from the looks of it. Was so psyched for the whole procession thing too. Their stubborn immobility just brings out the best in people in its wake. It's proven time and again that tags and status mean nothing. As long as there's someone at the temple to light up the night sky and welcome the sun, that's what matters. That's the point. Take away the temple and what do you have? Well, the Lamplighters have public baths. Very fiery.
If they took me off Lampies' access I'd have little to lose personally. It would be tougher to get more percussions to hand out in the temple, and I don't think those implications would be looked on favorably if they're not already being scrutinized for the nocopy settings on their gifts.
I've got a lot of pictures still to upload to Flickr. Flickr and AVG don't like eachother very much. It's always an ordeal when it's more than one image at a time.
