Late to the Party: My 7 SL Facts



The dress says it all about me: GEEK!

Late to the party as usual. At least I got a cupcake this time. :-)

I love memes, but by the time I get around to them, they’re usually old news. Doesn’t stop me from playing, though. This time, it’s Strawberry Singh’s My Seven SL Facts Meme, which has been quite popular in SL Blogland.

My SL Fact #1

I originally joined SL for real life business reasons. Back in 2010, a professional organization to which I belong in RL was chartering a chapter in SL, and I was asked to join. I had never used SL before, and in fact, hadn’t even done any “gaming” since college (and no, I won’t tell you how long ago that was!). For over a year, all I did was log in to the meeting location, stumble around, sit through the meetings, and log out. I wore the same noobie outfit every time because I couldn’t figure out how to change it. A year and a half later, I was elected to an officer position in the group and decided it was finally time to learn how to function in this community I’d been elected to represent. I downloaded a couple of books about the “technical side” of SL to my e-reader. Seriously, I am such a geek that I couldn’t figure out how to play until I understood how SL worked in techie terms.

My SL Fact #2

Serena Snowfield is my original avatar with her original name. “Serena” was my great-great grandmother’s name, and “Snowfield” is the last name given to me by LL back in the days when they used to do that. It stuck.

My SL Fact #3

Ever since I first fell off a friend’s sky platform, I’ve found it fun to fall off of things. It’s twisted, I know. I try not to do it when other people are looking because they’ll just think I’m a nut. But if I’m flying, sometimes I’ll hit the “stop flying” button and crash to the ground. Or walk off the edge of my sky platform and “drop in” on the neighbors. My AO makes it very entertaining to watch. Besides, what fun is SL if you can’t do things that would kill you in RL? ;-)

My SL Fact #4

Even a virtual house is not a home without a pet. In addition to the puppy you see here, I also have 2 other dogs, a polar bear cub, and 3 bunnies.

My SL Fact #5

I’m a super klutz. I’m continually walking into walls, falling down stairs, flying into trees, bumping into people, etc. I apologize if I’ve ever tp’d on top of you. It wasn’t on purpose, I promise.

My SL Fact #6

I keep my mini map on at all times. I like to know if I’m going to fall down the stairs in front of anyone. Plus, my house isn’t far from a fairly busy sim, and strange people have been known to just walk right in unannounced while I’m dressing. You could say that I’ve become a bit paranoid.

My SL Fact #7

Gavin MacGregor is my alt. I created him last fall because several of my business buddies complained about how difficult it was to make a nice-looking, male avatar on-the-cheap. I wanted to see if I could do it, and voila! Gavin was “born.” Believe it or not, I really enjoy men’s fashion. My RL husband won’t let me dress him up, so I get to have fun doing it in SL instead. :-)

  1. I love the feeling of falling too, sometimes I’ll just do free-falls off of my platform. So much fun. And no worries, never too late for a meme! Thanks for participating. <3

  2. I too have done the free fall just for the fun of it!
