It's All Meme-Me With You

Strawberry Singh has upped the SL bloggers' productivity this week by posting the Procrastination Meme. It is everywhere, and poor Miss Berry has the job of reading all of them, since she asked people to put the links to their posts in her comments section. I doubt she even knows who I am, but I'm going to slap my url in there, too, and join the fun of...well...doing things we're not supposed to be doing, when we're supposed to be doing something else!

In the style of Strawberry Singh, too, I attempted some professional-style close-up headshots. I recently got a whole new bunch of Windlight settings, too, which are fun to play with, especially since my little plot of land in the sky is now full of trees. Cue dappled light!

see this on flickr here - here!

  • What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often? 
I actually only have one SL avatar, and her rez date is October 30th 2010. 
  • Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life? 
This is where I hang my head in shame...the first place I made friends as a newb was Necronom VI. I was taken there by a RL friend on my first day in SL, and there I met Jaegen (then known as Laertes), and later, Sian Pearl. Most of the people I am now friends with were introduced to me by Sian, or are people I got into contact with through Flickr :)
  • Where do you spend most of your SL time now? 
Tragically (is that tragic?) at my skybox. In my defence, it is beautiful. Otherwise, I like to stand in the sea at Hangars Liquides and just talk to people. 
  • Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one) 
I actually can't pick only one. I spend a lot of time in SL these days with Carmine Chris, Croon Nandahar, and Salix Southpaw. I like to bug Lawrence Celestalis, who is an Eternal Sweetheart, via IM, too. I've spent a fair about of time with Sian Pearl, too, though now her computer is bust. Cue taunting - because she would taunt me if it was the other way around :P
  • What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)
Again...I'm not sure that I can pick only one! I am in love with my roller skates from The Secret Store @ the Arcade, and I also picked up the cutest clown-bear from...oof...Intrigue Co. @ the Arcade, too. I love them both so, so much. 
  • The last thing you purchased in Second Life? 
Kitti's new eyes - and a pair in white, too - from IKON. I tried a couple of different places, but I'm not sure how I feel about the tiny-pupils craze that seems to be taking SL by storm at the moment, and, I confess, I'm not very patient at looking through new shops if I've found what I want in one I already know. Don't get me wrong; the tiny pupils look great on most avis I have seen with them, but somehow, they manage to make Kitti look like a husky in a haughty kind of way.
  • What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?
BLACK TO MATCH HER SOUL I mean black and white. This isn't even, really, by design. She wears a lot of blue, too, since blue seems to be a pretty safe colour to combine with her ginger hair. 
  • Do you prefer to walk, run or fly? 
I walk - although, when I get fed up of the slowness of walking, I try to run by double-tapping the forward arrow key, and invariably end up doing a series of cartwheels or somersaults that fling me far passed where I actually wanted to go. I never, ever learn. 
  • What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL? 
Kitti and I are relatively boring. I spent a good hour flinging Kitti off things and trying to take pictures at Hangars Liquides for my blog banner once. I got into a helicopter with Carmine Chris which, let me tell you, is a pretty crazy thing to do. One time, Croon and I trolled Sian in my skybox. I say I trolled her - Croon did the trolling, rezzing something that would drop playpen balls on her head. I laughed loudly. Maybe that falls under the category of "mean" rather than "crazy"...
  • Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?
Oh, well. The OBVIOUS match for Kitti would be Nicole Kidman, but Rose Leslie could be good, too. This is just an exercise in me finding links for pretty ginger-haired ladies and pasting them on my blog, so I'm going to stop now (fun and procrastinating-ly as it is).

Aw c'mon. You knew there's be a twist.
Thank you for reading - I'd stay and ramble some more, but I really do have to stop procrastinating now...I'm running late!


  1. ooohhh Nicole Kidman would be totally sexy and can I just say, I love the images in this post. Really nicely done and fun at the same time! Thank you for participating. <3

  2. I have a girl-crush on Nicole Kidman - she is just wonderful. Thank you, and thank you for reading my post. You take the best close-ups, and they're always gorgeous. And I just love pulling my face - real, or virtual, lol. Thanks Strawberry :)
