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

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Hina/24/36/747

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.

Look #48: “Why do we love the sea? It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.” – Robert Henri

beach day_009

I went shopping at Summerfest and enjoyed the sim as well.  Nice build!  I noticed Kriss Lehman of Botanical had donated the pathways and grasses for the sim.  WOW!

I’m showing you what I wore on my shopping trip to the beach.  It took me FOREVER but I figured out how to apply skin tint appliers and nail/toe appliers to my slink hands and feet.  Well worth the effort but now I don’t want to change my skin!  Ahhhh…the fate of all SL Fashionista wannabes.

I love my drippy fingernail polish applier by Starry Heaven along with my Adore & Abhor Glitter drip toenail polish applier.  Once I figured out what to do (you simply have to wear the enhanced hands and feet by Slink then wear the applier hud and click on it…how simple) it was so easy.  I don’t know if I will ever take off my Slink hands and feet again.

The Starry Heaven appliers come in many colors in the same pack (to match my ever changing wardrobe and moods).  Starry Heaven has poses along with cool nail appliers.
