The Inventory Project – Landmarks or Sorting Landmarks Can Get Expensive

So I had this wonderfully ingenious idea (hey where is the sarcastic font?) to sort through my inventory.  I started with my landmarks.  When I started I had 200+ landmarks, 12,151 IZs and an empty objects folder.  After two days I have 102 landmarks, 9,151 IZ’s and 10 new things in my objects folder.  The trouble with sorting landmarks is that you find things that you need, but didn’t know you needed them, like the tiny giraffe I bought, or the 5 dresses I bought.  I had no idea I needed them, but I did.

Another thing about sorting landmarks is that it can be dangerous.  Like when you teleport to a landmark you’ve had in your inventory for a year, and WOW, the place it led to is no longer there, however there is a new house there and you teleport right into the middle of the bedroom.  That can get quite embarrassing, or em-bare-ass-ing, if you know what I mean. Or when you teleport to somewhere and end up falling, and falling, and falling and falling (you get the idea) and end up at the bottom of the ocean.  But I think the worst thing of all is when you teleport and there is a new build and somehow you end up teleporting into a all. I don’t mean like running into the fall I mean being part of the wall.

My next adventure will be sorting out my Notecards.  We shall see how that goes.

What Goes on When I’m not Online?

I have to ask myself this question.  I personally think my avatar parties the whole time I’m not online.  What other reason could there be for my hat being skewed on my head every time I log in?  I log in I tilt my hat back and the next time I log in it looks like this:

And this morning as you can tell from the photo, not only was my hat tilted, but my lipstick was smeared.  I wish I could have this much fun in RL, or at least be present when I’m having this much fun in VL. Oh don’t get me wrong, I have a blast when I’m online, but I just don’t get to go to too many events.  Maybe I should leave IW running and find out what REALLY goes on when I am a.f.k.  🙂

An Introduction

 Hello everyone!  My name is Becky Torkelsonn and I am a resident in Inworldz, which in my opinion is the best VW (virtual world) in the RL (real world). I was born into my first VW on August 10, 2009.  That world was SL (Second Life).  There I found a wonderful place called Victoriana.  It was a Victorian based sim with a wonderful Mayor by the name of LittleBlackDuck Lindsay.  I had found my home away from home.  I bought a parcel and built a house.  It was good.  Then the Mayor got the shaft from the powers that be in SL, and Victoriana had to be shut down.  I cried for a week.  It seems that although the Mayor had built everything that was Victoriana somehow the permissions got changed and he couldn’t fix anything and, well, the Lindens just didn’t seem to give a flying squirrel about it.  I bounced from place to place in SL never really finding a place that felt as comfortable as Victoriana.  And then in August of 2010 I received an e-mail from the Mayor saying that he was opening Victoriana in a place called Inworldz.  One year and three days after I was born into SL I was reborn.  On August 13, 2010 I was born in Inworldz.  I immediately found a parcel of land in Victoriana.  I have built myself a house and am in the middle of decorating it.  It is slow going as in RL I have started attending college online at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, but that is a post for a different blog.  There are so many wonderful people in Inworldz, and although I didn’t think it was possible, I feel more at home here than I did in Victoriana on SL. So that is my virtual me in a nutshell.  I hope you return to read more of my posts.
