Maybe I was feeling a bit cynical about the whole Valentine`s thing, and I did enjoy both the pre-party at the Coach, and the full London Sims party in Hyde Park. But the words to the Eagles song “Hotel California” kept coming to me when I thought about Second Life love last night.
“My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim,I had to stop for the night.”
“There she stood in the doorway; I heard the mission bell.
And I was thinking to myself, `This could be Heaven or this could be Hell`.”
Then she lit up a candle and she showed me the way.
There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say…
Welcome to the Hotel California,Such a lovely place (Such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California, Any time of year (Any time of year)
You can find it here”
Last thing I remember, I was, Running for the door.
I had to find the passage back, To the place I was before.
“Relax, ” said the night man, “We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave! ”
Anyone having a slow dance with this avatar could be “feeling a little hoarse”!
And, like I say I was probably being a cynical,old, single person.
The loved-up couples seemed to be totally lost in each other.
Along the same lines of heaven and hell, though, we have another huge event on Wednesday at the same venue in Hyde Park. There will be an “Angels and Demons” contest – with prize money on the contest board!
The London Sims is currently looking for hosts and DJs, so if you want to be like the gorgeous Sandra (pictured above, right) then get yourself down to one of our events and chat to the staff about getting an application form.
