April 8th, 2010: Raul Crimson

A sound in the background makes me open my eyes… it was my cat saying: “Hey U, hooman slave, feed me nao”. I want to stay in bed for some minutes more, enjoying that sweet feeling of holidays. I look at the clock, it’s 09:10AM. I sit on my bed, trying to fix the world around me for a moment, I turn on the radio… some Jazz music playing. Phone rings, is my partner saying Good Morning, he has to work today.

I follow my cat and add some food and some fresh water to his bowls. He doesn’t even say “Thank You”, just submerge his head in the bowl, I imagine for a moment he is trying to catch an apple floating in a water barrel, that image in my head makes me chuckle. After having a coffee and a couple of cupcakes I turn on the computer. Some things to do, tomorrow I’m traveling with my partner to visit some friends and I need to get the boarding passes, just to get good sits. I say hello to friends in Plurk and log into Second Life.

It’s night in my sim when I log in, lights in my house are on (they work automatically). Some IMs coming, some group notices, someone special for me saying “Good morning”… I answer slowly, as when I wake up from bed I need to sit for a moment and try to fix the world around me. Where is that texture I uploaded? Oh, there it is! I play with the new “Shared Media” tool for a project I have in mind, doing some tests. I enjoy mornings in Second Life, all is quiet, calm… since is night in the US is easier to visit place that are normally crowded. The holiday feeling invades my Second Life too and all I want is to sit and enjoy a nice sunset.

Is time to log off for a while, things to do in my other life too. When I log off I wonder for a moment what my avatar does when I’m offline, what he explores… And I wonder if he wonders the same about me.
