I’m trying to look intriguing today for Strawberry Singh’s weekly blog meme, because today she asks us intriguing questions. I have to admit I like her nosy question memes best of all because I’m a Nosy McNosypants and I really enjoy going to everyone else’s blog and seeing their answers. I suspect mine aren’t going to be terribly intriguing, in part because when you don’t have a large social circle you don’t encounter the drama that could spark the more interesting answers. But as always it’s fun to do anyway.

1. How do you deal with criticism?
In RL or SL, if it’s constructive criticism about some project then I try to take it into consideration and make changes, especially if I’ve asked for critique. It really depends on what is being evaluated and the spirit in which the criticism is given. (edit to add: I was thinking of criticism more as requested evaluation, review and professional advice here.)
2. What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do?
I’ve never encountered anything infuriating personally, but in general the same things would be upsetting in SL that are upsetting in other online social venues. Rudeness and general disregard for others is always unpleasant to witness.
3. Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why?
Oh gosh. Not a clue really.
4. Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration?
Again, not a clue. I don’t know enough people in SL to have met anybody that was a troublemaker..
5. What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you?
I don’t have anything for SL, and I wouldn’t say it’s ruined for me, but in RL I used to love making little graphic art things like greeting cards, or posters for friends. Then I married a graphic designer and became super self conscious and couldn’t enjoy it nearly as much because I kept comparing my amateur hobby stuff to his professional work. He thinks I’m silly.
6. What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about?
I can’t think of anything I want to do in SL that I’m really embarrassed about, my SLife is pretty mild mannered.
7. What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you?
My hub and I come up with all kind of dorky things to call each other, but I’m not gonna share! Mostly cause he will occasionally look at my blog 😉
8. Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident?
No. Not into the dating scene, I was married to my SL partner before we ever joined SL so he’s my one and only.
9. Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for.
This is easy, in 2008/2009 when my hub and I had our stores. I really, really miss my little store sometimes. I never had many sales, my stuff was really simple and basic and sometimes kinda primmy, but I enjoyed making everything and it was so much fun just being a shopkeeper. And when somebody did buy something or occasionally sent me a thank you it was beyond awesome 😀
I’ve still got all of my store items in inventory and I’ll rez something now and then because I was really fond of some of my little statues. Nowadays we’d never even consider going back into content creation because we never got beyond fairly basic sculpts, and I’m not sure mesh is something I’m ready to tackle. But for the time I had my store I had the best fun 😀
10. What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you?
Hahaha, oh I don’t know. RL tickets and backstage passes to see my favorite band would be unbelievably sweet! But in SL, any time someone has kind words, or likes a photo I’ve snapped I think it’s really sweet and it always makes me smile.
I thought I’d do a bit of sightseeing while I was busy being intriguing, and wandered around the Linden playground in Da Boom. Also I really, really love this new little mesh calico dress from Sn@tch and wanted to show it off. 😀
