Look #50: The Haunted Meme by Strawberry Singh

close up curlsMeme Instructions: What are you afraid of? What are you haunted by? Share some of your fears and if you can, create an image depicting one of them. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments!

What haunts me?  Sometimes it’s my inner thoughts, usually about someone I love and what it would be like for me to say the final mortal goodbye.

One person told me that my mind was a dangerous neighborhood and to never go in it alone.  And there are days that I will follow this great advice.

There are days I do not.

Believe me when I say the days I stay out of my head are far more peaceful than the days I muddle about in places that leave me no peace.

Post #49: Meet My Friend Challenge AND BIG REVEAL!

mal and benj finished

Here’s my friend (well he’s my RL husband) Benj Proto.  I am interviewing him for the Meet My Friend Challenge by Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme Challenge http://strawberrysingh.com/page/2/

Malachite Bing (in bold)  interviewing Benj Proto.

1)  How long have you been a resident?

I have to look…2005…8 years.

2)  What have you done  in SL with all that time? 

Dabbled in businesses, building, scripting, and I met you.  Yeah you did! 

3)  What impresses you about SL?

Technology, sociology, connecting with people all around the world.

4)  What have you learned from being a resident?

People are people, they are the same behind the avatar or as others would say, “People is as people does”.

5)  How has that impacted your RL?

The answer to this is in my answer to #2, I met you. AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

6)  Is there anyone or any thing or place you miss in SL?

Not being logged on with you, exploring, particles, sailing, building geeky stuff.

I miss our exploring.

7)  Fondest memory, go!

Sitting at Cloud Chateau, watching particles, having a conversation with Malachite Bing


Yep, that’s where we met, November 4th, 2007.

8)  Is there anything you would like to add?

I love you.  I love you too.
