Sometimes I go through phases where I feel like I am just logging into SL out of habit rather than a real desire to do anything productive, and my SLife just feels a little flat. If you've been around SL long enough, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.
But these last few days I am all excited about SL again and it's all because of my new little bundle of meeroo joy.
I was almost ready to give up on my meeroos because I kept getting a whole lot of nothin' special nests. I don't keep track of my breeding on spreadsheets like some do because I hate Excel with my life and I know next to nothing about breeding animals in SL or RL for that matter. I just try to pair them up as thoughtfully as I can with my limited understanding of the meeroo genetics puzzle. I thought I was a lost cause, but the other night, Sid and Nancy Meeroo gave me their first nest, which turned out to be a keeper...
Behold Paisley Meeroo...my new Caledonian/short tail meeroo. To the untrained eye, she looks like a regular meeroo, but trust me, she's a rare one that is worth some $L's.
And from Sid and Nancy, who would have thought?
Actually, I'm quite happy about this because this time I put some time into researching genetic histories (and I possibly lost some brain cells in the process), and low and behold, I got a winner!
I can't wait to breed this baby for some more meeroo awesomeness :))
