I enjoyed the first part of the CSI:NY Second Life episode, as well as its brief appearance in The Office, but I think neither show captured the sense of bebop reality.

The other night, I was wandering around the grid, and stopped in on New Citizens Inc., and struck up a conversation with a couple of strangers. Pretty soon we had a nice little group going. They included a woman who was talking about how she was trying to build in the sandbox, but got interrupted by someone dropping anvils on her. We admired another person's little Japanese-cartoon avi, and he or she began cycling through their avi collection, which included a giant toaster (which gave us actual toast). A realistic woman dressed in the finest leather slutwear from DE Designs came over and talked to us (hubba hubba). Two vampires came over and began to roleplay that they were going to prey on us, and I did what I usually do in that situation -- joked and tried to make them break character by cracking up laughing.

Just a typical visit to SL.

Hah, that's great. Take any pics?

No, I'm afraid not.

I didn't think twice about it while it was happening because it was just another visit to Second Life.
