SL is like a cocoon. If you don’t venture out you get stuck. For me recently (read MONTHS) stuck is good. We spend a great deal of time at home. By we I mean the delightful and immensely patient Tasty Hastings. We have been together for almost 5 years.
When we are not at home we are playing an immensly addictive table game called “Can’t Stop.” We also like to fly and boat. I am the pilot and he is the skipper. We have a great boat from Berdav called the Torpedo.
I have a small seaplane and an ultralight we like to fly around in. We “live” in a primo location. We live on Norse Basin. Which is adjacent to Cape Kirk in Second Norway. We have a straight shot to the Blake Sea and many fabulous sights.
We are like an old married couple – we rarely go out cause we only have a little time together when we are here. So we might seem anti-social, but its just us enjoying ourselves.
We do try to do the Sunday sail with Rainbow Sails Yacht Club. When we can both manage to get there.
I have lots of people on my friends list. I don’t talk to alot of them regularly and if for some reason i get dropped from someones list i usually don’t notice. I am not one to keep an eye on my list. I most often miss people when they are on line cause i only see them when they log out. (I get a little drop down on log in and log out).
My Second Life is my own. My Second Life is much better with Tasty in it. He makes me laugh ALOT. I look forward to when he arrives. I get giggly like a school girl when i see him log in.
There are alot of people on my friends list who i can’t sort out for the life of me why they are there. I have been slowly purging. I do it quietly and without fanfare.
I purged a “self important” DJ from my list once and it took him almost a year and a half to figure it out. He came whining about being dropped. I let him back but he dropped me. So oh well.
I used to work for a couple of breedable companies in SL – alot of the people on my list are associated with that. I need to purge but TBH I am just lazy.
I am no longer on Facebook. I got booted as Petr during the booting storm a couple or 3 years ago. I created a RL account, it was so i could msg with Tasty. But now he has been booted so we migrated to G+. For the small group of those who know my RL account I have logged out. Again being lazy about cancelling it.
In my almost 10 years in SL i have learned a great deal about human nature. The key thing i have learned is – my SL is my SL and I am in control of it.
Oh and one more thing. I can be found cruising sometimes. Tasty knows this and he also knows we are rock solid. He tells me to “go get some strange” when he knows he won’t be around for a few days. And I hit these places cause we like to “do it” in public places.
Thats my ramble for today.
