Recently, I discovered I was very wrong. Earlier this week when my friend logged off Second Life for the night, I decided to go somewhere to listen to music. I decided to go to Big Daddy's 80's club because there's always a lot of people there to talk to and it's a fun place. This particular night I saw a name that seemed familiar to me so I started looking through his profile. I decided to send him an IM to ask if he used to own a store in Second Life.
One of my personality traits is my natural curiosity and inability to give up when I'm trying to figure out something. So I'm talking to this stranger and looking through his profile. He's doing the same to mine. Suddenly I start getting all these IM's all at the same time. I'm thinking WOW...I'm really popular tonight lol. It was too many IM's for me to really read what everyone was saying but I noticed one in particular that said "I liked you better as a human". That caught my attention as well as the one that said something about what a nice rabbit I made. So I cammed back over to myself and there I was or something that no longer resembled me at all with my name over it.
My first instinct was to hit the log off button. I noticed an IM that said "did you click a link in someone's profile?". Errr, why yes I did, you see I'm curious. I clicked a link without even reading it in the guy's profile that I was trying to figure out who he was. This link changed me into a rabbit. I didn't know that was possible to click a link, have it undress me, and make me into an animal avatar. Well now I know, and I'm telling you too so that you'll know. Never click a link in someone's profile especially if it has the word "wear" in it.
It was funny, but very embarrassing. However it made Second Life fun for me again. It made Second Life what it used to be for me in the early years. So I guess even though he irritated me a bit, I had fun that night. I talked to more people than I'd talked to in a long time.
I left the rabbit suit on the next day to let my good friend Arol Lightfoot, who's a fantastic Second Life photographer, take some pictures of me. She was kind enough to take some pictures of me as a raccoon as well. Thanks Arol for making them so sexy lol!
