Take Another Little Piece of My Heart - A Strawberry Singh Meme

Strawberry Singh posted her Monday Meme today, more questions. She's nosy that way. I told her on Plurk that I'd post my response as soon as I figured out which of my MANY new hairs to wear. I honestly look forward to these memes or challenges, whatever you want to call them. Through these exercises, some frivolous, some not so much, I think I've revealed who I am behind my avatar. I've been leaving pieces of my heart on the pages of my blog, so my choice of hair was a given - Exile's Piece of My Heart from Hair Fair 2013. I even tried to give myself a Janis Joplin vibe!

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your post. Delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a comment in Berry's post!
  1. How do you deal with criticism? It depends on whether I've solicited a critique or not, and who is criticizing me. When I was building, Aprilmae Devin would turn a critical eye on my builds and make constructive comments to improve my build. She was usually right, and though I'd moan and grumble about the extra work, I would end up with a better build. We all need someone like April to keep us from getting lazy. Occasionally criticism comes out of the blue and I'm not as receptive to that kind, especially from people I don't know well. It doesn't happen often enough for me to have to develop a coping strategy, though.
  2. What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do? I sometimes get a vibe from certain people that they see most of us like a gamer's NPC - non player character. The rest of us exist solely on the screen for their amusement. I think that is a big source of rudeness in SL and it drives me bonkers.
  3. Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why? Oh gosh, since Ayla Barzane and I live on different continents it would be such a miracle if we could sit down to big salad together. Aprilmae Devin should be there, too. I'd make them both drink iced tea. We'd have the best time even though I'd have to listen to them rage about people who would ice tea!
  4. Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration? I might not have been able to think of an answer to this if it hadn't happened just today. A male roleplayer sends me IM's out of the blue setting up a roleplay scenario. Not "Hi Dolly, how are you? Do you want to roleplay? Here's what I'm thinking..." but just sending the IM with the first paragraph of roleplay. He's been doing this a few times a month for almost a year and it's always the same line of roleplay! I used to politely decline, but now I just click out of the IM. Maybe it works on some, but for me it's a real turn off.
  5. What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you? Mesh ruined my prim building! I keep thinking that one of these days I'll learn to build in mesh, but so far I've been too lazy.
  6. What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about? I'm so easily embarrassed by my desires that the list would be too long to post. ;-P
  7. What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you? I'm hoping that when Ayla calls me "Doolally Dolly" she means it affectionately.
  8. Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident? Yes, both romantically and the friend sort of love. SL is amazing that way.
  9. Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for. I get nostalgic for the now gone roleplay sim where I met most of my closest friends in Second Life. It's been gone for two or three years and we've moved on, but I still occasionally miss it.
  10. What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you? Take me exploring. There are still so many fantastic places to see in SL.

  1. You're definitely channeling Janis!

    1. Thanks and oops! I misspelled her name!

  2. You really are the sweetest person, Dolly, both in SL and RL. You are kind, generous, funny, and one of the best friends a person could ask for. Now.. back to that idea of ice in tea..WHAT????

    1. That's just the way we do it on this side of the pond. Get used to it! ;-)

  3. You're right, that style was just perfect for this post. You look beautiful. <3
