Bone on… Updates!

February 9, 2010

I got an IM from one of the creators of Peek360 (a cool web app that sends a bot to a sim and takes a 360 degree panorama photo.) He mentioned me playing Half-Life, a game which I haven’t played in months, in our brief discussion and I realized, shit, I need to update my blog!

First thing’s first. I got about a third of the way through Half-Life 2: Episode 2 for about the third time before I succumbed to Headcrab burnout. Since then I’ve been playing many games and I’m currently playing Mass Effect 2. Also, occasionally Burnout Paradise, Aion and, yes, I still log into Second Life almost every day too. I just don’t do much.

Bone on Blogging

Second Life has taught me many great lessons. The most significant being that it is okay to be myself. And as a result, I’ve become more and more comfortable with my inner-nerd. One way this has manifested in RL is that, once a month, I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Yes, once a month I step in the shoes of Shenck, a spiked-chain wielding Shadar-kai fighter.

And since I love games (RPG, board and video), I’ve started a blog about them: Hi There, Owlbear!

Of course, Sehra and I continue to work on Fashbang! as well.

Bone on the Big Step

Sehra once informed me that she could be with someone who likes Anime or someone who played D&D, but someone who likes Anime and plays D&D, well, that’s approaching dealbreaking territory.

I only mention that because it makes me laugh and I needed a transition into the “big step” portion of the post.

Sehra has been my SL partner for over a year now (officially and unofficially). And this past December we transitioned into RL in the form of our first face-to-face. I don’t want to go into too many details. I will say that tickets have been booked for visit number two alter this month. So, yah. You get the picture.

Two things I learned:

  1. Sehra is pure awesome, in both worlds.
  2. Telling a parent, who has heard many horror stories about “internet people”, that the worst thing that can happen is that you’ll end up chopped up in someone’s freezer, is not always the best idea. God, mom, it was a joke!

Bone on Other Stuff

In an effort to get this post out the door, so to speak, I’ll cut this short. So…

More to come? Maybe. But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  1. I am thrilled for you both.

    I once told my mom “Sorry, but I eloped with one of the other teachers. You’ve heard me talk about Alan.” It took me MONTHS to convince her I was joking!

    Congrats! That’s so cool. It’s so often that I hear about the bad things of online dating its nice for a change to hear something good, especially when its a friend.

    And Aion dude. I didn’t know you had played. I was on Triniel for awhile.
