Gratias vobis ago

Today is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. (Yes, Canadians, we're behind, OK? :))

I have a great deal to be thankful for in RL and SL... and here I want to concentrate on SL.

Despite it all, and despite everything I've said and thought, thank you, Linden Labs. (We wouldn't kvetch if we didn't care.) I'd not have met any of the wonderful people or had any of the wonderful experiences I've had in just three months without your work.

Thank you, Cheyenne and Pavig. I admire your grace and elegance, and hope to achieve some of it someday. It's an honor to be able to count you as friends.

Thank you to all of you who have honored me with your friendship.

Thank you to all those who make the amazing, beautiful, and hilarious things that make SL a thriving environment instead of the barren wasteland it would otherwise be. (Hilarious? Yes. Dancing cows somehow leap to mind...) You have my word that I will respect the work you put into your products by buying them rather than stealing them!

Above all, thank you, my darling Mordecai.

Stupid monitor has gotten all blurry... I'd better stop now, though I'm sure I've forgotten many.

Darling, even though I am English and Thanksgiving is not a feast we are known for honouring, let me do so now by giving thanks as well. For LL, without whom there would be no SL. For SL, without which you would not be in my life, and nor would all those who know me. And at the top of the list, thank you, without whom I would be nothing.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!

Hi Melissa, just stopped by to say Hi and catch up on your blog. You are so right that we have much to be thankful for. And I agree with your sentiments about Linden Labs for making this possible.

BTW, I love your title...I was (still am in secret) a *HUGH* Ricky Martin fan! :) Hope to meet you inworld one day!
