It’s turning out to be a week to remember, I’d put my story on CNN a few days ago about Brie and Seany from the London sims announcing their engagement in real life. Some stories give me great pleasure to write and this was one of the best, two very good friends who I’d felt so happy for and the story was a beautiful one, just what we needed to cheer us up in this very gloomy start to 2010. I was hoping Henry Hanks the CNN producer would be pleased about it as he had covered a story on SL romances in 2008 when he mentioned one of my articles covering Brie and Seany then, so it was a nice follow-up. Anyway to cut a long story short they decided to list the story on the very front page of the CNN website under ‘Living’ and it’s getting the most hits I’ve ever had on an article and been shared numerous times, so it looks like it has taken off quite a lot. I must admit to feeling a little excited about it all and still am, Brie and Seany’s story would make a great film, crossing real life with Second Life, and it has a real ‘feel good’ factor about it!
We talked about the story a little at the CNN meeting last night, among other things that Nicole wants us to follow-up, and there was some group chat going on as well and for some reason I started putting in some fish puns for a laugh, like ‘good Cod I never thought of that!’ Anyways, I don’t know if that put the thought into their heads, but Hibiscus and Ed decided to go fishing later and I caught up with them there. I thought it was supposed to be relaxing, but they seemed to be squabbling over the fish and what they had caught, so funny! We had a good old chat before I logged for the night!
