This Defies Logic

WHY do I still like SL so much???? This makes no sense whatsoever. I’ve spent thousands of real dollars on new equipment: pc, wires, modem, router. I’ve reorganized my schedule so that I can go inworld every day. And everyday SL “rejects” me. I crash. SL crashes. I can’t rez. I can’t tp. My inventory won’t load. It’s not just me. I hear everyone else chatting and they have crashed. They aren’t rezzing. They can’t tp. I see friends go offline and come back online w/in the next few minutes and I know that they either crashed or are trying to improve their connection. When I logon and see 52,000 people inworld and then I crash and log back and see that now there are only 43,000 people inworld, I blame SL, not my setup. I crashed last night – couldn’t even log back in. Tried this morning to get back and finish what I’d been doing. I could get inworld but couldn’t rez, couldn’t get my inventory to display. So there I stay. Thank goodness I’m someplace enjoyable!

But if SL were my real-world love interest – NO WAY would I tolerate this relationship. And yet….. I’ll be back tonight, trying yet again to rez. Hoping I’ll put on my party clothes and meet up with friends and savor SL. Because it is so much fun. Either you “get that” or you don’t.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
