Time shifts

It's hard to have something to write about when RL is such a cruel mistress that she demands all of your time leaving previous little (aka none) for SL.

When I first arrived in SL I had some spare RL time and so I filled it easily. If I wasn't in SL, I was blogging about SL, or plurking with SL types, or editing photos for the blog, or reading SL blogs. It was all encompassing. I had a gap and SL filled it. And more. It burst its banks, it ripped the seams, it poured forth and drowned some parts of RL. Or at least submerged them for a while.

But now RL is making a comeback. SL may have won the battle but the war is still raging and RL is launching a counter-offensive. I feel like a double double agent in the resistance. I am confused and not really sure which side I'm rooting for.

I have to put RL first, for a whole plethora of reasons, but I do wish there were more hours in the day so that SL got a look-in. At the moment the ref is giving SL a standing eight-count. Its legs are wobbly and its eyes are glassy. Will RL deliver the knock-out punch?

Ok, enough analogies and metaphors. RL is calling. She is a demanding mistress as well as a cruel one.


  1. That is why you must get a job with Linden Labs. :-)

  2. That would certainly be one answer.
    Do you know if they're looking for an analyst for their NZ office?
