There again

On the very first day of this new year I visited There where I was kind of Forrest Gump, most of the time running so as not to fall asleep before reaching the end of the valley.
I tried to climb up to the top of a mountain but the slope was so steep that I skidded and slided down over at least one hundred meters before stopping.
The advantage with virtual worlds is that when you have such an experience and you stand up from your plunge you are totally undamaged and you can keep on your silly activities without any hesitation.
Tonight I resumed my travel from the place I logged off, that is on this same steepy slope and of course I fell again...
Laughing is not allowed.

Fall seven times, stand up eight.

Fake friends in SLProfiles

Some days ago I wrote about potential friends that were piling up in my profile.
Investigating further I noticed that in SLProfiles there is kind of contest, those who have most friends that you can admire at Top 40 Friends Accounts
Some of the top 40 were also in my list of new friends, here are the top 4 as of today:
- Tony p (3883 friends)
-Nyla Cheeky (2635 friends)
-AngelicaLean(2282 friends)
-Amish Lancaster (2052 friends)
Obviously they are running a race.
I won’t be the nag that will help them hit the mark.
I decided therefore to remove these fake friends from my profile, considering that I was neither a foil nor a number.
From now on I will be more careful when receiving an offer.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made.
