Second Life

Sorry for the blog silence tonight, y'all. I just discovered Second Life, along with my husband, and we've been playing with the silliness with the avatars and exploring and stuff.

If anyone else does this insanity, send me an e-mail and I'll hook you up with my SL name. Not that I can pronounce the last name to save my First Life, and of course they've now enabled voice chat!

Anyway, I'll be back tomorrow. For now, my avatar and I are exploring.

Note: This post originally contained my Second Life name. Then one of my SL friends found my blog through that name. This isn't a problem whatsoever with that particular individual, but after much repeated thought I feel that it might be best to at least keep this aspect of my SL identity to myself and only give it out to regular readers.

I saw that thing but it scared me. I hope you successfully make it offline!

Scott, LOL, I made it offline!

Just exploring, as I said. It seems the educational areas are incredibly dull for the most part, which is a shame.

Too bad. It's a nice interface idea.

I'm afraid to try Second Life. I already am addicted to blogs. What if I got addicted to Second Life? I'd never have time to live my First Life!

I tried it for a while, but didn't really get into it. I could never get the hang of moving my avatar around. Have fun. F

Maui, LOL! I hear you there. It is very entertaining... but I kind of like my First Life better. Second Life is fun to visit though :)

And F, I will have fun! My avatar looks like she's got a huge problem when she walks (I hear there's a way to fix that but I don't yet know how to enable it), and I have this rotten habit of flinging herself off cliffs, but fortunately, she's bouncy :)
