Real Life, Cyber Life, and Second Life.

So Pammy wants a new post, so here it is. Mark does too, but when Pammy asks, I do.
She started off pretending to be my stalker and we just got fond of each other. In real life we'd never get on - I'm a foul-mouthed dirty old hippy with no idea, and Pammy is a clean living religious girl. I think she likes my soft heart. I like her soft heart too, and her sharp wit, and of course, the way she looks over her glasses, and she is an uncontrollable flirt which I love.
In real life Pammy has a great husband and four beautiful kids. In real life I have a beautiful wife. We have one kid, Josh, who is now 23. I have four other kids by my first marriage, Fran, Jake, Kate, and Henry, and another kid from before that, Paul, who is 37. I have four grandchildren, Hope who is 8, Robin who is 5, and Freddie and Gabe who are 8 weeks and 5 weeks only.
Pammy is a writer and so am I. I also work as a horsetrainer.
So there you are, that's real life and cyber life. But have you heard about Second Life. It's where you can have a whole new persona. I signed up but unfortunately my present video card is not good enough to support the programme. I am looking into an upgrade. The great thing about Second Life is that say you were a fat ugly useless bastard (in your mind, not mine - I would never say that about someone, well, not to their face anyway) and you fancied having a life where you were a really attractive successful person, you can do it there. I am planning that my persona in Second Life is going to be completely free of all convention, free of morals, and free of all concepts and rules about life. I am going to just completely go for it and take this world for all I can get. In real life I do feel free, but my freedom is an inner freedom. In my external life I am fairly strict with the way I live. Pretty much my only rule is 'do unto others as you would have done unto you', which kind of limits things in some areas as I really try not to crap on other people in any way shape or form if I can avoid it.
So no robbing stuff, no shagging around, no telling lies, no crapping on other people to better my situation. But I've always wondered what it would be like to be a total hedonist, so if you end up in Second Life and come across me, just be on your guard. I'm going for it BIG TIME!

  1. Perhaps we could meet in our second lives, eh Tommy dear?

    And yes, you do have a soft heart, which is one of the things I love about you.

    Hippy or not, foul-mouthed or not, I'm still your girl. :grin:

  3. If I had a second life, I would have it exactly the same, but with straighter toes.

  4. I think I'd like you in real life as well as cyberlife.

    And I'd be delighted to meet you in any additional lives, even your mate, Mr Scurra, as long as he wasn't wearing sandals.

  5. Tommy and Vicus are an item? will wonders never cease?

    What is this Second Life? Does it have to do with reincarnation? Just my real life is quite enough for me, I have neither the time nor the inclination for the Second Life. Besides, tonight is Happy Hour.

    Tommy, I think hedonists end up being very lonely since all they care about is themselves. I like you better in this life, and I admire the rules you live by. It takes real courage to be as good a person as you are.

    rblaagf - What I will sound like tomorrow morning if I have too many margaritas tonight.

  6. Pammy, luv u, not so sure you would like me in my second life - I'm an out and out bastard!

    Mark - type second life into google and away you go.

    Vicus - ugh, you never told me you had weird toes. No wonder you could never pull.

    Cherry - I'm the one who wears the sandals. Birkenstocks actually. Isn't it better that we continue to dream how beautiful we all are - in real life I will be a huge dissappointment, just ask Vicus, he's known me for years.

    Carmy - Birkenstocks! are you still my friend. I'm only messing about at being a hedonist. I once knew a guy who just went for it and boy, did the woman love him. I promise i wouldn't do it in real life but in a computer game, it'll be ok won't it.

  7. Someone who can do what you do with horses can't be a bad person Tommy.

  9. Tommy, Yes I'm still your friend and always will be. Just don't wear the birkenstocks with white tube socks, please? Or any kind of socks, ok?

    About your friend the hedonist, there are women that love a guy more the worse he treats her, I have a couple of girlfriends like that. I'm glad you're not like him.

  10. Carmy, you're going to have to get beyond the sandals and socks thing. You'd look so cool in a pair of Birks - one day eh babe.

  11. I thought this was your second life anyway because the first one gave you up?

    Re your blogroll, Tom. I note that only myself and Vicus warrant the tag "old". Fat bastard maybe but I'm not that old.Yet. Well, not as old as Mark or Vicus. Vaguely youthful?

  12. Here's the update on my second life. I finally left the learner island and entered SL proper last night. I went all over the place and never met a soul but eventually I ended up in a forest and met a guy called Wolf - he had a wolf head, hands and feet. He explained to me that he was a 'Furry'. He then said I needed some background info on Furries as I would probably meet quite a few. They also exist in real life and they are into dressing up like animals to have sex.
    Well, you know me, I was feeling a bit funny by now, and wondering if I'd done a wrongun. Anyway, I hung around with him for a bit and he was actually really a nice guy. Tonight he's going to take me to a few places and also show me how I can make a bit of money to live on.
    Exciting stuff!
    By the way, if any of you are furries, no offence, I'm fine with it.

  13. By the way Richard, 'old' is anybody over thirty.

  14. I don’t see your name on the UK Fursuiters list yet.

  15. No, I'm not sure fur does it for me. God I've lived a sheltered life. Five minutes in SL and I'm learning all sorts.

  16. Ahh the furs, generally a friendly bunch:) Bit of a first time poster, (reasonably) long time reader here, so *wave* and hello:)

  17. I'm becoming slightly lost.
