Oh, they thought about me and my secret wishes for useless shit. How nice of ’em. 🙂 If you’re a Premium member you obviously received the same email but I’ll post it here, since it doesn’t happen too often and is almost always connected to getting you signed up to SL. In so far I love LL for their reluctancy to spam us with thousands of spam mails as many other companies would doubtlessly do.
Still there’s the nature of the advertised events that irks me. Look here so …
Honestly, I feel insulted now. Do they think we collectively fall into a state of being of Hallmark movie characters and are on the same (very very low) intelligence level? Let me make this abundantly clear: Shopping ain’t an event to be celebrated!
Remember when, with big ballyhoo, the Lindens invited us to barrage them with snowballs on one of the ice floes in Icey bay? Yeah, that was the good old days. But what is this now? Instead of having the event in the middle of SL’s biggest and oldest continent, Sansara, we’re now sent to an unconnected Portal sim. Probably looks nice for the many blogs of aforementioned Hallmark characters. And that’s all that counts these days, innit? This ain’t for tinies, zombies or dinosaurs, all just for shiny happy people in shiny happy fugly xmas sweaters. Just like the wonderpretty bento avies this is all an imitation of life … a totally unrealistic life as it only happens in stupid xmas moovies. And same as these movies are only for a certain demographic of useless dummies, so are these LL events.
Sorry to rain on anyone’s xmas parade but I’m not going.
