You Know You Are an SL Addict...


And, so, I will keep blogging until I can resume my normal virtual life. Thanks to netopnyrop for having pics of my home on Flickr :-p

I was reading over one of my favorite blog posts by Intellagirl and thought that I would blog about the misery of being off due to technical failure (and, no...I WAS NOT BANNED...smarty pants...what on earth would I get banned for...being toooo nerdy? ROFL).

So, here is my new list...and I welcome additions and links over to your posts.

You Know You are a Second Life Addict When...

1. You are at a meeting with a dean and he makes you laugh, and you accidentally say the letters ROFL...

2. You are at the Gap, and you see a slick pair of jeans that costs 40 dollars and you say, OMG...that would cost 10,000 Linden!!!

3. When people ask how your husband is, you respond with "which one - the real one or the virtual one?"

4. You get up at 5 am to go to a class on making Easter Baskets...

5. You are jealous that your book bag can't carry all your inventory.,.

6. You have no idea what your SL best friend's name is in RL (um, Eloise, really, you can tell me...).

7. You eye up a pair of leather stiletto boots and think, wow, can I get these inworld?

8. Your students call you Desi in the hallways at your RL college...

9. You start to write in paragraphs that will fit on a notecard...and...finally...

10. Your life goes upside down when your machine dies, so you spend all your time blogging about it!!!

Brilliant, your list just made my day ;) Yesterday I was watching a movie and I caught myself thinking: "wow, I love the costumes! I wonder if I could get one like that in SL...". And now I see this could be the first sign of addiction ;)

Anyway, I just wanted to stop by to wish you good luck in getting your Second Life back - we miss Desi :( Hope to see you back in-world soon!

My real name? Can't remember - but it does add to your list:

You know you're an addcit when you react to your SL name when shouted in the street.

The one I do most often - swear when alt±cntl±shift and the mouse won't let me zoom in and pan so I can the photo from just around the corner.
