Jullie tossed me a stick and I grabbed it, looked at it and then forgot it. I have a horrible memory, I really do. But now I found it again and so we shall blog it. So what is this stick toss? Well it’s a blog challenge and we all know how I feel about those. The rules are as follows.
1. Link the person that tossed the stick
2. Answer the questions
3. Toss the stick to 5 different people
4. Tell those people you threw a stick at them
5. Ask 5 new questions
Alright, easy enough. Let’s do it.
1. What do you do on SL? (model , pose, blog, create w/e)
I blog and shop. Then I blog some more. Shop even more. Shop again. Occasionally I actually do model for stuff, random people looking for bodies for vendor ads or whatever. Nothing serious or very prestigious, but tons of fun none the less.
2. How long have you been on SL?
I logged on SL the very first time in late -06. I looked around, tried to change my avatar, failed and logged out. Returned almost a year later, this time with more success. I stayed for 3 years and left again. Then came back again… I know, total flake.
3. Is your current avatar your first one or is it an alt?
Neither. It’s not my first, but right now I have no other avatar than this one, so it is not an “alt” in that regard. This is the avatar I live in now and so it is my main avatar. I left my first behind because of a bad situation and I have not looked back.
4. What store in SL could you spend a fortune in?
The question should be “What store couldn’t I spend a fortune in?” I have a serious shopping addiction. I shop more than I can wear or blog. I frequently forget what I bought, or what I bought it for or even where I bought it. I can go batshit at an event or store and drop a few thousand only to realize I have 2 weeks until I get to buy more lindens. Because I do have a very strict budget, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to contain myself.
Anyway, if I have to choose just one, I’d have to go with Maitreya. Each release they make I have to strike a deal with myself to only get one item. If I don’t, I will get myself in to a noodle situation for the rest of that month. Everything at Maitreya is just so well made, fantastic textures, superior shapes and just over all great style. I wish I had enough to buy all the things (especiallly the shoes), but I’m just not that fortunate. Restraint is what I bring to Maitreya.
5. What made you join SL?
Like so many others of that time I saw a piece on Second Life on TV. Thought I’d give it a shot. The rest is, as they say (who are they anyway?) history.
Ok, do you feel like you got to know more about me? Great, then let’s toss the stick to 5 new people and get to know them. I toss my stick to:
Marja @ Crazy in Second Life.
Sarah @ Lilac Rose.
Willis @ What IS Willis Talking About?
Grazia @ Grazia’s SL.
Sian @ Parthenoid.
For the hardest part, coming up with 5 new interesting questions. Let’s see.
1. What does Second Life mean to you?
2. If you could do anything in SL and know you’d be successful, what would you do?
3. What is the best thing that ever happened to you thanks to SL?
4. What do you think we as a community could do to improve SL?
5. Your biggest SL fashion pet peeve? (Please illustrate with a picture of yourself doing it!)
