Been taking a little glimpse at how the Secret Garden competition is going in SL Chelsea, some people have done quite a bit so far and others are just starting. From what I have seen it’s going to be a job to judge as the ones that have already taken shape all have some great features and ideas. Seems we have quite a few really good builders in Virtual London and it’s exciting to see how well they are doing! I met Elizabetta Westland and we stood having a look.
Talking of great builds in Virtual London, there is one bar in Soho that I really like, it’s called the Mobar and it’s a good size with plenty of seating and it’s nicely located too. I’ve haven’t seen it being used much so far, but that may be due to my time zone, however, it would be a lovely meeting place for people to sit and chat. The only thing that bugs me, and it bugs me all over the grid, is some of the seating, getting the pose balls facing the right way and the right height on the seats. I tried the chairs outside the Mobar and they are all facing the wall instead of across the table, likewise with some seating in another part of Virtual London that Hibiscus and I tried (which had us laughing so much!), it turned us upside down with our bottoms in the air! not a pretty sight!!! (although I think Hib was hiding under the chair because I wanted to take her up in the helicopter!). Virtual London isn’t alone in it’s little bits of seating failures (of which there aren’t many), the location for the CNN meetings I go to, on CNN Island, is notorious for the bad seating in the briefing area, it’s quite funny to see new people arrive who end up sitting back to front and and can’t figure out how to sit facing the right way!
