I had a great morning playing Tera with Mel and Whimsy this morning, we also met this guy there who had never heard of Second Life. So while riding along I was filling him in on all the wonderful charitable things that the Second Life community does, and a little bit of info about what Second Life is. One of the things that has a huge wow factor, especially with the charity aspect is not the total amount at the end of an event, but how that total is achieved. We all know how currency works in second life, but when something is only a percentage of the total, and the total price on an item is sometimes not even to the value of a full US dollar, it is absolutely amazing. I remember when we did the first ever Another Fundraiser, raising thousands of dollar with the money come in at 50L at a time, that was a huge eye opener into how many people are involved in the process…the customers, the creators, and the organisers, all doing their utmost to do good, it really is something that needs to be discussed more often out in the real world.
Mind you after hours running around Tera in the hot desert sand, in a red bikini – oh yes, that is how I fight monsters, can you tell Mel got a little excited by the buyable costumes in the game…he even got Whimsy a full leopard print catsuit, because she loves leopard print – I was relieved to come back into SL and get some work done. More often than not though, I am in a bikini in SL too, as it is my in-between wear. So I wanted to acknowledge that today, as credit is definitely deserved, my go to bikini and 99% of the time worn, is the Ellio bikini by BOOM. Ok so what was I saying ? because honestly my train of thought these days is more loco than locomotive.
