Lauren and I were talking Friday and she brought up Second Life. I had no idea what she was talking about. She explained that it was a free online video game that is similar to my all-time favorite, The Sims. You create a character and have them earn money to buy a house. People, she explained, have made millions by selling these house, furniture creations etc and converting their "Lindens" (Second Life money) into real money. So of course we both had to try it out. I ended up with Georgiana Brim, she ended up with Marie Gerje (since this was not planned, we obviously have 18th Century obsession issues).
This is what we came up with:
That would be Lauren in the green on the right, some Marquise in green on the left, and of course, LouisCharles, "Le Dauphin" in the Bourbon blue stockings. Yes somehow, we managed to find Versailles, get some cool swag, and now all I want is 162 more "lindens" so I can afford a nice wig.
