This is where I spend a great deal of my SL these days.
Yep, just sitting on the wall outside of the house. Sometimes I go sit on the railing on the back deck. But mostly it's here, on the wall. I don't know why. There are places to sit inside. It's just my spot, I guess.
I was picking up a gift at a store earlier and while I was waiting on things to rez, I overheard two girls talking to each other and after a couple of moments, it became clear that they're SL sisters.
I've never actually had "family" in SL in the sense that I actively call anyone my sibling or parent. I've been included in a group that calls themselves a family. I'd certainly consider my Ch'Know group my family. But as far as an actual brother/sister/mom/dad thing...no.
I don't really get into the whole "OMGSPAMSPAMSPAM THAT'S MY SISSY SPAMSPAMSPAMOMG" thing. I don't think anyone over the age of 7 or 8 should use the word "sissy" when talking about another woman. Unless your name is Sissy, and in which case, John Travolta will pick you back up after the convict has slapped you around for throwing a carton of cigarettes at him and then gets his ass kicked after he steals the money he didn't win because John Travolta is a better fake bull rider and then you get your little license plate with your name on it put back up in the window of the truck and you drive off while Johnny Lee sings.
Wait. Where was I?
Anyway, I don't much care for the whole "SISSY!" thing. But sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have an SL family. Not that I'm looking to get a kid or anything like that at all. LOL I'd be a horrible mother in SL. But the other stuff...the family stuff. Hanging out with sisters and brothers, maybe having someone I looked up to as a mother or father figure... Sometimes when I'm spending hours alone in SL, I wonder if I'm not missing out on something.
Do you have family in SL? How did you get into it? Do you find that it enriches your SL experience? I'm honestly curious.
Oh, but if anyone screams "♦♣○♥!♦♥♠SISSY!!!!!11!!•○☺☻♦♣" at me, I'll slap them and run.
Edit: Crap, I almost forgot. LOL
Ali's Thanks of the Day: I'm thankful for my close friends who may not have the title of "sister" or "brother" but are no less important to me because of that.
