WHISPERSSSSSSS… IN THE DARK

by BridgetMarlane McDonnell

In the still and the dark of the night;
With moonlight casting an errie light;
The SwIrL Models come out to play
Flittering too and fro in the glimmering rays

February will be here soon.
Listen as the clock chimes the hour of 5 and noon.
BEWARE dear friends – keep your ears to the ground
Or you won’t hear – the whisperings, the sound.

Filipa Thespian has something spectacular up her sleeve;
Will keep us in awe, until the hour we leave.
She’s toiled through the nights as these formations
took place.
And guarantees us – she’ll have another Ace.

Shhhhhhhhhh – listen, do you hear them…
The Whispersssss in the dark.
Keep logging onto this site
And we guarantee your utmost delight!
Whisperssssss – whispersssssss in the dark!

Keep checking this site to be the first to find out just what these whispers are saying.  I shall whisper a little louder when I say this “It is going to be awesome!”

SWIRL Offices have moved…

1 11 2009

Sorry for the inconvenience folks!  The wonderful woman who owned the sim on which the SWIRL offices resided (Elegant Sands) had to sell her sim.  Not too big a deal as I’d already taken ownership of the new Park Avenue sim a month prior and have been building the theatre and shops!  We’re live, a few odds and ends left to finish up, but we’re there 🙂

The new Swirl offices sit on the beautiful Park Avenue sim, right down the street from the Pyramid Theatre.

The Pyramid Front 1

On this sim is the theatre, where entertainment events abound, the recreational beach which includes the ever fun and my personal favorite, the Seven Seas fishing game lol and many shops (which have just been opened for rent btw).  Please come on down and take a gander at SL’s newest addition.
