Goodbye #31

Second Life
Yesterday was my last day as a resident of New Toulouse Bayou. It was not easy saying goodbye to my corner of the swamp. I love New Toulouse. It’s beautiful and has a wonderful community. First life goals, however, demand I curb my spending a little. However, my gracious and understanding landowner, Gabrielle Riel, made me an offer I couldn’t refuse and I will be returning to New Toulouse in a month or so when its new sim, Jardin, opens. It will be a smaller parcel (and quite possibly hold a shop). I’m looking forward to a new chapter.

Fat Tuesday

Second LifeFrom parades, parties, and open house events from merchants and artists, New Toulouse has been the place to be all weekend for Mardi Gras festivities. It’s not too late to join the fun. Tonight is the Absinthe Ball at the mysterious Hôtel Spiritueaux. There are actually two balls to accomodate our residents and friends all over the world. One is 12:30pm – 2:00pm SLT and the other is 7:30pm – 9:00 pm SLT. So put on your Mardi Gras best and come on down!

Venetian Night in New Toulouse III

Second Life

There was some serious fabulosity going on at this weekend’s Inaugural Macaroon Ball at the Hôtel Spiritueaux in New Toulouse. I was very tempted to approach everyone with a microphone and ask, “Darling, who are you wearing?”

Second Life

The water in New Toulouse has receded, but last night saw saw residents and guests paddling through the streets. I put away my dresses and opted for denim shorts, my favorite wellies, and a classic Cajun hat.

I woke up today to find my shack underwater!

Tonight is Venetian Night in New Toulouse. The water has risen and the streets have become canals. Bring your boat and come explore the beautiful city and swamps of New Toulouse by the flames of candles and lanterns.  Scheduled boating is from 2:00pm – 3:00pm SLT and from 7:00pm – 8:00pm SLT.
