This is Strawberry Singh’s Procrastination Meme. When you read the questions, you might wonder why she called it that. Here is her explanation…
I had another meme planned for today, but since I have been procrastinating so much the past week, I figured this would be a better choice instead. I’ll do what I had in mind for today next week. We all procrastinate from time to time. I’m actually a professional procrastinator but that’s not entirely my fault you see, I’m easily distracted. This meme isn’t really about procrastinating though, or how you procrastinate. This meme is just to make you procrastinate even further from what you had planned for today (or this week). 😛
These questions appeared on Strawberry’s site on March 18. I was going to answer the Procrastination Meme back then but — wait for it — I kept putting it off.
LOL! I always love that joke!
Ok, let’s get serious now…
1. What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often?
July 21, 2007
2. Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life?
I explored so much, moved around constantly in my first days. Only had a couple hangouts where I would stop to organize my inventory, read notecards, search for other places to explore. One regular stop was a pub in Mathew Street, a Liverpool sim dedicated to The Beatles. There were several pubs but I favored the one that played Irish music. I think another was Rustica, whatever the sim was called then. There was a large pub there at the time which I really loved. (Now the Rustica sim is part of Winterfell!) In both pubs I would chat with anyone that came in.
3. Where do you spend most of your SL time now?
In my little cabin in the north woods of Winterfell.
I once owned three Mainland regions. Later I downsized. But I had several homes and offices scattered about the Steamlands. Then I traded all that in for a homestead in Winterfell. Then I downsized again. I have this one little cabin on a tiny parcel in a writers and artists colony and a parcel for my Storytellers Pub in southern Winterfell. That’s it. Oh, and one Mainland 512 for my alts to call home until my premium membership runs out at the end of the summer, not renewing. (I do have four regions on Kitely grid but that costs less than my meager SL holdings.)
4. Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one)
I must pick two – and even that is not fair. Listed in alphabetical order.
Eleanor Banx and Robyn Pastorelli
5. What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)
Never ever thought of this before so it is very difficult. I suppose it’s a tossup, I’m picking three! A building – The Evergreen Pub. Built by TeaTone Catteneo in 2008. It was the first build I commissioned. Tea did an updated version of it as a gift for me in 2011. I have also made a hybrid of the two versions. The Evergreen has been my pub until just recently. It’s in moth balls now as I have a new pub, mentioned above. But I hope it will come back some day. Another object is an old radio made by Fox Reinsch of IndieSpectrum Radio. But I removed his scripts and notecards and replaced them with another favorite item, a killer radio system created by my old and dear friend Dreadsta Rendelstein, who sadly has not been in SL for a long time.
6. The last thing you purchased in Second Life?
Purple Rugs by Gothic’s Muse. Purchased in the Steampunk sim while visiting the Joy of Steampunk Museum. I forget what I paid but it was a good deal. 1-prim texture changing rugs, 12 textures each.. Bought two versions. A total of 24 different carpet choices, all purple!
7. What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?
Purple and Black.
Purple is the national color of Winterfell and I’m the Winterfell Ambassador. Need I say more?
8. Do you prefer to walk, run or fly?
9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL?
I’d rather not give her name.
10. Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?
Johnny Depp. Think of him as a 19th-century time traveller, Victorian attire sans cravat, rather dashing. Got the picture? Yes, Johnny Depp is my choice.
