I was injured; down for 6 months due to a fall at work. I had planned on moving to another state but could not until I had jumped through all these hoops to both A) Stay on Workers Comp, and B) If I left prematurely and re-injured myself I would be screwed. Or so I was told... Anyway...
I found Second Life through an adult website. I joined in 2007 so a lot of these are from that era up until Laoise was created (2010.)
Blueberry Hill & The Pap Daddy Dancers ... I loved this place and I loved working there. I remember... lol... I was on the stage with the DJ and another dancer and I was up all night beforehand and I just stood up and went to bed. I came back to my avatar still dancing and the place empty. Oops... Shocked that I wasn't fired for that.
I remember spending hours at Dance Island (asking someone if they had the dance "Caramel" and instead of an animation I got a bowl of caramel candy- LOL!) I Remember a club called The Galaxy... A club called ApocaLips... and the drama that came with that place. There was one I spent a lot of time at and I can't remember the name off the top of my head, but, I can remember the names of a few regulars who either don't log in anymore or have moved on to different avatars.
Hmm... I remember doing surveys for Linden (I didn't want to invest RL money into SL at the time), getting verbally abused by someone who owned this survey place that was decorated all gaudy - she was German, and wouldn't pay the money I had rightfully earned and accused me of trying to scam her.
I remember making a mAlt, then abandoning him. I remember being given the name and password of another mAlt, who was a dancer.
Fondest memory though? Visiting Freebie Beach. Whenever "Cyclone" by Baby Bash plays anywhere I have to listen to it.
she moves her body like a cy-clone ... and she makes me wanna do it all night long...
