Strike? Me?!

This whole "blogger strike" thing...I understand that a lot of you are upset about the whole trademarking thing. And I understand the point you're trying to make. But I am not striking. If I did strike, it sure wouldn't be a blog strike. I'd fly to San Francisco or wherever LL is and march around with a sign over my head chanting, "1 2 3 4, we don't wanna use little bitty symbols no more!" You know, something loud and annoying.

Here's the thing. What does a blog strike mean to Linden Labs - really? This isn't like when the Writers Guild went on strike and we were stuck watching reruns and they were pulling really horrible shows out of the "Really Crap Shows" room to put on tv. This isn't like a garbage strike where the garbage isn't picked up and it overflows onto the streets. And it sure as heck isn't like a hunger strike where someone could die like Bobby Sands for not eating for 66 days.

But, I respect your right to strike, and I support you. I just don't personally feel the need to do it. At least, not until someone gives me a REALLY good reason and tells me what it's REALLY going to accomplish. Besides...and this is not a jab at anyone and I'm not trying to be offensive...but with most bloggers, would you really know if a strike was going on? Come on, be honest. :) You know good and well that a lot of bloggers don't post every day. Maybe I SHOULD strike. Give my blog a little rest. :-p

The party tonight at the pit was quiet. A lot more quiet than I guess we would have liked, but it was still fun. Dyami showed up, as did the sexy Tristan wearing some absolutely CUTE shoes that buckled way up her leg and I forgot to ask where she got those from, and Celeron Voom of Urban Trash came towards the end. Cel's the one who made me my blogger shirt. :) And of course Cen and Rick were there, along with some of the others in our dysfunctional happy family. lol I had fun playing the songs I like and we had sploder wars with the timed sploder I bought earlier. I'm actually about to hop back over to the pit and do some skydiving.

One bad thing about my DJing tonight was that I missed the party at Orcas. :( But big big big congratulations to Casius and Margo on their partnership!! :) I wish I'd known that the party was tonight. I'd have moved things around to be there. :)

I just realized I've been so occupied with finding party stuff tonight, I haven't even made it through the freebie blogs! I could be missing out on some wonderful gift!

I agree with you on this point Alicia. What will a strike accomplish - except deprive the hordes of loyal "fans" who avidly read the SL-blab.
Those dastardly Lindens have better things to do... like make a new version that will like totally screw up the other half of my inventory! :)
*grrr* =^.^=

*raises hand* - me finds myself in this category

And just what would we do anyway without our daily dose of Ch'know?

I agree, Alicia - I couldn't imagine what good it would do anybody if I were to stop writing on my blog... and thank goodness you didn't participate, you are about the ONLY SL blogger I know who updates every day!!!

-Quaintly, who is bored and doesn't have enough SL blogs to read
