Chatting Once Again… January 16, 2009

Filed under: Otherland Island #1 — baker Blinker @ 7:28 am

“Hucka D., something very important before I forget: I think I might have found the planet that Grassy and the whole Mmmmmm civilization is from. The equivalent to our Pluto. The real end of the Appalachian Trail, now forgotten. Grassy; Mt. Oglethorpe. I’ve found Grassy Noll. I know this because, well, Gypsy Curse, er, Purse is right next to him, it, there. This is Pluto. This is the Moon. Moon of SL. This is where Grassy is from.

Hucka D.:

That is correct. That’s where the rocket sent you. From Otherland I.#2.

bb:

This is the 9th, the one that the Council of 8 became instead of kicking it out. The 9th. Pluto. Planet and not dwarf disk. Reattached to the end [of the solar system]. I found it. I’m reattaching it; that’s my prerogative, um…

Hucka D.:

You are forgetting…

bb:

I’ve found Grassy Noll, as obviously indicated by Gypsy Purse in the immediate vicinity. This has something to do with Hurla Dontbee doesn’t it Hucka Doobie? We must talk about that now.

Hucka D.:

Not quite yet. But: yes.

bb:

And Neptune was there at the boardwalk just as I was leaving the shore of Otherland I.#1 tonight. Seeing me off, as it were. The 8th, Neptune. Before the 9th, or preceding the 9th.

Hucka D.:

You’re getting good at this!*

bb:

So I’ve found the 9th now. Baker’s Planet/Island that Baker Blinker was looking for before I showed up on the scene.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., I’m wondering if the 9th can also be Ozmo as well as Grassy? Both are green drunks or perhaps alcoholics, after all.

Hucka D.:

Grassy is my counterpart. Ancient mortal enemies but now friends. Sort of. The bloodshed ended in The Wilderness [of TILE Creek].

bb:

Is…? never mind.

Hucka D.:

But: yes.

bb:

So many answers already found in Otherland. Obvious that we had to move here.

Hucka D.:

Obvious. (pause) But you still want to talk about the Temple of Neith stuff.

bb:

Yes. A theory, then: the Egyptian Temple of Neith was much like my temple in Neith [sim], in that it was a little too large and a little too empty. The *Uber* had to be erased, simultaneously with the decrease in overall volume by 1/3rd [i.e., the new Otherland version of the temple is 2/3rds the size of the Neith/Azure Islands version]. But… what about the Atlantis information gathered from hieroglyphs at the Egyptian version? What would be the equivalent to that in the SL Neith “double”?

Hucka D.:

Neith is TILE. She has a veil. What’s underneath? Rubie. Rubie and Silver. Rubi; Sylver. All that still applies. The temple is being marked at each spot along its travel, like the Red Violin. Each location has a story. It has merely begun a new chapter… in Otherland. The real story of this blog, of your [baker b.’s] travels in SL, is not the Bakers but the temple and attached gallery.

bb:

What of the Arab? In maps, that’s intimately, exclusively even, attached to Grassy and Gypsy. The Arab is a ship in Sink, Sank, Sunk, Missouri. Grassy’s territory.

Hucka D.:

I don’t wish to talk about that tonight.

bb:

Should we end?

Hucka D.:

I wish to see the purse. Take me there.

bb:

Ok.

bb:

Almost forgot Hucka D. Found out tonight that The Arabia was a side wheeler. Wheeler. (pause) Hucka?

* Hucka D. later indicated to me that Neptune will always be there to see me off at this point.
