November was a HUGE month for notable events that Sunbeam was a part of. Sun started off with the Premiere of the Immersive Edge, a hypergrid story, then on to the celebration of being an avatar at the AvatarFest and then the exciting Grand Opening of Leighton Marjoram’s new grid ‘Lighthouse Point’. There was a Birthday party for Nara’s Nook, Happy Birthday Two Years Old! AND her home grid GCG (Great Canadian Grid) celebrated their Two Years Old Birthday! and Sun and the team of VISIONZ produced their biggest issue ever with a whopping 90 page edition.
Christmas came to our Virtual Worldz with lots of winter regions popping up to explore and Ice Skating parties to attend. Naturally our party girl, Sunbeam, jumped in with both wings! She set up a Free Christmas shop at her friend Linda Kellie’s Christmas region on GCG and she also built a little Christmas scene at the Winterfest Expo on the Tangle Grid.
Of course in between all these notable events Sun went to HG tours, concerts and parties, enjoyed a private tour of her friends’ Anna and Steve Ford’s ‘Pet Gallery’, plus her friend Jessie Campbell taught her how to play the game ‘Greedy’. May of been beginners luck but Sun won both games they played! Sun also did some fun exploring and went shopping and bought some new gowns.
Sun also set up two new shops in AAcme City, one a Mermaid shop and the other Aine’s Statues (Of course all items are free to copy). She did some landscaping around the city (terraforming really relaxes us), added some animals to the forest and cleaned up some areas that were overly primmy. She moved the Halloween graveyard to a new area by the AAcme Airport and ser up her Happy Holidays HO HO HO area in it’s place. All in All November was a busy, fun and exciting month for this little Fae!
A high note in Sunbeam’s life was when she took her friend Scarlet ‘Abby’ Rose to meet Elsie and Anna, Scarlet’s idols, at Fred Beckhusen’s Ice Castle on his Outworldz grid. Scarlet was so excited and really loved riding the dragons. Scarlet was born with MD and is a very special young lady who guided by her nurse and my virtual sister, Kat Ewry finds fun and love in the virtual environment.
A low note in Sunbeam’s life was when she lost her dear friend and virtual nephew, one of the great musicians of our worldz, hunter Montgomery to a heart attack. hunter went peacefully in his sleep; may he rest in peace as he lives on in our hearts. Also there was the world wide tragedy of the terrorists attack in Paris, France. Sun has many friends in the Franco grid and was thrilled to hear that all of them were safe and survived this unfathomable incident.
If I must say what the most notable event that happened in Sunbeam’s journey it has to be when she FINALLY broke down and used her voice. Yes, she does has a voice. Ever since ‘Voice’ came out in Second Life (about 10 years ago) Sunbeam was distinctly opposed to it. Sunbeams’ typist being hard to hear and having ear problems most of her life aslo was against the activating their voices. The awful sounds from the ear plugs and the ear splitting feedback and the confusion of 20 avatars talking at once hurt their sensitive ears. Even though Sun’s ears are huge and pointy, they don’t work well at all! Plus she really liked ‘type text’ where she could always go back and review conversations, maybe something she missed or needed to make note of. One night after a party everyone was chatting and having a gay old time while Sun was typing away and no one noticed. We decided right then to ‘activate’ our voice and early the next morning she went to her friend Daisy Coronet who patiently taught her how to use the voice system. Thank you Daisy!
As has become our custom, here are a few pictures taken during the month of November… please enjoy the slideshow showing the fun Sunbeam has in her virtual worldz with family and friends this month of November 2015:
As always my valued friends and soon to be friends, step in sunshine! Sunbeam
