I'm beginning to become addicted to an online game.
Do any of you guys play it?
I thought I would go on and see what all the hoopla was about.
Well, I did- and for the first week I was so frustrated because I was a newbie and had to learn all the controls and pick up gestures and stuff. I'm so not good with dealing with learning new things like that- mainly because I bug the crap out of Paulius asking him a blue zillion questions andd i feel like I'm imposing horribly on his time to do what he wants while I'm on the comp. He would just get sat down and I would ask a Q and he would have to get up and come show me something.
Then two minutes later, just as he's getting a ciggie out to smoke, or just getting back into the book he's reading or getting back into the plot of the movie, here I go with another question and up he would have to come to show me something else.
The man has the patience of Job and he hasn't complained once about it.
I, on the other hand have NO patience and almost called it quits several times during that time.
I traveled alot-well, transported- and went to some of the hot spots and favorite places. Most of the people in the big ones were kinda snobby, you know- they already had their own little groups going on. The people I met just walking around exploring or in the quieter places were great tho- very friendly and helpful.
So I learned from them. And of course, from Paulius.
Then I finally acquired enough wealth to upgrade my basic avatar...new flexi hair and a new outfit. One girl gave me a new body shape and new skin -a really nice tan.......and now there's a whole new me on there.
And I like her. She's more ballsy than I usually am. But at the same time she's not lost all her sweetness. She'll do well in SL, I'm thinking.
I'll see if Paulius minds if I post a snap of my avatar on here. If he minds, then I won't.
I got to see his new avatar self as well yesterday. And I have to say....Dang, my man is sexy no matter where he is!!!
Anyway, my point is......I'm becoming addicted to this game. I'm not obsessed with it- I don't neglect RL for playing it, but any free time I can spare between all the running and work and spending time with my hubby is spent in SL.
I never thought there would be an online game I liked enough to actually seek out playtime for.
Well, besides Bejeweled or Majong, that is.
Paulius won't gripe either- not that he would- because he was the one who got me interested in playing it. I think he's sort of surprised that I've taken to it like I have. Whether it's pleasantlly suprised is something he will have to answer.
Myself, I think he's a bit bemused at this point.
Some people on there get SL & RL confused sometimes- that'll never happen to me tho. It's fun to be another place and another person sometimes tho. It's relaxing and strangely calming to me. I think since I started playing it I haven't had my blood pressure up once. That has to be a good thing, right?
I'm so glad Paulius introduced me to this little game. I'm having a LOT of fun with it.
