Not a Meme Challenge Number 9

Coles Not a Meme Challenge What has SL brought to your RL?

I would say, More friends.

But I will go further and say this is what it was brought to other peoples RL, a decent article in The Times about disabled people and their experience in SL. This is a two page spread in the Body and Soul section of The Times, so will be read by a large number of people.

It also has quotes from Torley and Bacarra Rhodes.

For me, the wheelchair symbolizes disability in a way a cane does not.

Dolmere has started the Not a Meme Challenge
and having been asked to contribute to Number 8.

Here it is:-

Now that you have been outed as an SLer.

What would you show your Grandmother in SL?

( As she has read about all that sex stuff, and now thinks ( or has proof ) your a dangerous pervert)

I would take her to Svarga and show her all the right-ups about it in the press.

New world Notes and the New York Times for example.

So, what would you show "your " Grandmother ?

Dolomeres Not-a-Meme

Dolomeres Not-a-Meme challenge

I only have one useful hint.
Ever bought a lot of stuff and then wonder what it was called a few days later?

I did, and what were those clothes called again??
Bummer, it's lost in my inventory, never to be seen again.

So I just now right click on myself and write myself a note.

Sometimes I even understand my notes a few weeks later.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. - Dalai Lama

A confession

I have a confession to make...I've become a Stripper..hard to believe I know.

I'm taking it all off, all of it, I'm not even wearing my gloves or my boots, and you know I almost always have them on.

Why am I doing this, you ask, simple, it's for the money. I'm not going to pretend that I like it, but it's something that needs to be done.

But I think I am doing rather well, I have the hip and and the hand motions down well.

Sometimes I take it off bit by bit, one piece at a time, other times I just just grab handfuls and just wrench it off.

Some have asked to see me with no clothes on as well, I won't name anyone. So here's a picture for you.

Stripping this horrible 1970's woodchip wallpaper from the walls of my flat is taking ages.

Antarctica, the cursed, is the continent that is the Pastafarian equivalent to Christianity’s Hell. The beer volcano froze over millennia ago, the strippers wear big bulky parkas and snow pants, and the place is covered in ice and snow. - Rev. St. Tobias Leonard
