Answering Berry’s challenge

Are you looking for a way to put off doing something? Because Strawberry Singh has issued another challenge/meme.
Bear and Derry hanging out at Artropolis.

I am not usually much of a joiner, but this one comes on the heels of Berry’s Seven SL facts about me meme and she offers good reasons for starting it: she’s nosy and she is trying to get everyone to procrastinate like her.

And since I can’t resist the temptation to put off writing a story, well, let’s just say it’s all Berry’s fault I got no work done this morning. Copy the questions yourself, and put something important off.

What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often?

Bear Silvershade — March 22, 2010?

Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life?

That would have to be the Buddha Centre. I am a buddhist in RL, so I finally wandered in there to attend a ceremony after wandering around for a few days without talking a lot to people — Hey, I am shy. They were very welcoming people, and still are.

Where do you spend most of your SL time now?

I don’t think there is one particular location, since I spend most of my time sailing or exploring. Probably either my home in Fruit Islands or my studio/workshop at Artropolis.

Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one)

Oh, that’s not fair to just pick one - lots of good friends, but my partner, Derry McMahon, has to rate as closest.

What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)

That great black duster mesh coat I picked up from Deco.

The last thing you purchased in Second Life?

Rain. Aye, you read that right. The Best Rain. Cool stuff and very realistic.

What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?

Black. Grey.

Do you prefer to walk, run or fly?

I generally walk. Flying all the time seems unrealistic, though I prefer that to running when I am in a hurry.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL?

Does friending Crap Mariner count? Turns out that’s not so crazy, so I’m not really sure what counts as crazy in a virtual world - maybe the time I armed myself with a teddy bear shooter and joined the Tinys in a battle against the Orks?

Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?

Humphrey Bogart. Or perhaps Cary Grant. No, Bogart.


  1. Ok first of all, LOVE that pic of you and Derry, very sweet and it rocks in black and white. Second of all, yes, definitely, friending Mr. Crap is another one of the craziest things I've done in SL as well. :P And finally, what are your plans with the rain you purchased? Do you have an sim where you plan to rez it and allow explorers like me to come and take pictures there? :D Please? Lemme know! <3

    1. Thanks Berry, Derry does look awfully cute…

      I think it’s the same rain that Squonk Levenque used to build 2304 Rain. I bought it because Derry wanted me to make it rain for her latest entry into the Potpourri Markets’ Art Show 2013/ competition. She’s in her second week of 12, trying not to be “voted off the island.”

      But alas, I am not a sim builder, I just like to explore. Though I am now wondering if I can attach the rain to my avi, so my noir “lonely man” character can take his own rain with him wherever he goes.

    2. Oh, and just a plug for the art competition Derry is in: it's at inworld, online.

  2. oohhh, I'll try and stop by!
    Also, do you have a link to that rain on marketplace?

  3. Even though I don't know you, Bogie all the way.

    It's a hat thing ;)
