Posing for M Linden
Sweetie has taken me twice to Shareta Osumai, a new infohub built adjacent to the new Linden homes.
She was quite impressed with the quality of the build. "If there had been a place like this when I was new..." she said.
Yeah, but then she might not have met me!
The sim features a series of pagodas on a hillside and a variety of new Linden plants. Sweeite was enraptured by a Linden Mole-built dragon that was wrapped around a tree.
I guess that dragon stuck in her mind, because last night she wanted to fly around the area as a dragon.
Great, I said.
Oh. She wanted me to become a dragon, too.
I did, and I'm glad I did, for as soon as we arrived I spotted some avatars at one of the pavilions. I flew down, and there, of all people, was a Linden.
And not just A linden, THE Linden-- M Linden.
Yeah, THAT M Linden, Mark Kingdon, the CEO of Linden Labs.
M asked to take our photo and of course we said yes. And I took his (see the above shots).
M soon had to leave to do whavever CEOs do at 7 pm (play putt putt in their offices?) and we resumed our exploration of the area.
Sweetie's favorite Linden houses-- and mine-- were the Asian ones-- but the first time she smacked into a red fence, she was done.
It's our opinion that the builds will be a mess once all the privacy fences go up. What a shame!
Here are some pictures of the area...
Can you see Sweetie waving?
Here are the Asian Linden houses...
And here are a few photos of our dragons:
