So Berry’s Monday Meme this week was to have someone else interview you. When I read her blog post I immediately decided that the first person’s name I saw on Plurk I’d ask to do the meme with me. Opened Plurk and WHAM! Bouncer Criss! Well, okay.. I don’t really know him at all. Seen him around on Plurk, he likes my ass it’s quite obvious.. maybe he will say yes… Thankfully he did and we decided to take pictures of each other too!
It was nice getting to hang out with him in pixel form for a little while. I think us not really knowing each other brought a little awkwardness to the situation though. At least it did for me. I am shy (yes! I am no one ever believes me) so when I don’t know someone I am not my normal joking and cutting up self. Lucky for me he tolerated me. Thanks again for saying yes Bouncer!
What follows is the interview Bouncer gave me. As you can see, he wasted no time getting down to business.
So Shae, why haven’t we done a naked picture before today?
Shae Sixpence tilts her head curiously to the side, “Well, this escalated rather quickly. I suppose because you’ve never asked me?”
haha, thought I’d break the ice. Ok, serious now. This is the first time we’ve met in world, we have been Plurk friends for a while. What makes you tick when it comes to blogging? What’s your inspiration?
Various things inspire me. There was a time in my SLife when I “had” to blog out of obligation and that unfortunately caused a lot of burn out for me. It’s about the art for me not really the blog. The blog is just my way to go back over time and remember. Random things inspire me. Could be a necklace or a new pair of shoes.. mostly music though.
Do you have a certain style you lean towards? Are you more couture, casual? What do you consider “Shae’s Style”
I don’t do well with casual at all. I am more glitter and diamonds than anything. I try my very best to challenge myself but I always end up dressed up like a princess in the end. If I am not overly formal I am normally dressed in what people would consider business clothing. It’s how I dress in my first life so it carries over.
I can totally understand that, I am like that a lot. I tend to wear a lot of jeans and shirts in real life, so it kind of carries over to Second Life.
Jeans and a T-shirt is about the only thing I can do casual! Oh, and flippies. Us beach girls can do flippies.
Flippies? Is that what you southern girls call them?
I don’t like the way “flip flop” sounds coming out of my mouth. Don’t judge me. It’s far too early in our relationship for that.
I know from seeing convo’s in Plurk that you used to model. Did you start blogging before or after you did the modeling thing?
After, my ex-parter blogged on a consistent basis so I started blogging with him.
Since I know you’re a southerner, did you run out and buy your bread, eggs, and milk because of the snow tomorrow?
Shae Sixpence purses her lips together, “As a matter a fact I did along with all the fixins for crock pot beef stew that I’ll throw in tomorrow before I go to work.. a really big pot.. in case I have to rough it without power.. you know..”
Haha, I bought bread for grill cheese, that was the extent of my shopping.
And while you are suffering with only grilled cheese to eat know that I’ll be only a few hours south feasting. Cause it’s how I roll during disastrous times.
Wax or shave? Landing strip or nothing? j/k
Didn’t we have a Plurk conversation about this before? I’m almost certain we did.
We may have, but these conversations happen on Plurk so much, I forget who is shaved and who isn’t.
Oh, the woes of being Mister Bouncer Criss..
So what do you like to do around Second LIfe when you’re not playing dress up and blogging?
Blogging is actually what takes up the least of my time in Second Life. I have two jobs in Second Life, one being the CMO for Miamai and the other being the Senior Editor for Love To Decorate – The Magazine. Both keep me pretty busy. If I am in world I am normally doing something with one of them or both at the same time. When I am not working I spend time with my kids and I really enjoy exploring sims.
That’s awesome, and sounds pretty hectic. One last question, cause I can’t think of anything else to ask, to busy drooling over your avi. If you could change 1 thing about Second Life, what would it be?
As in improvement wise?
Anything, what would be one thing that would make Shae more happy in Second Life?
I’d say the way the skeleton works or how the avatar moves. I’m not very smart when it comes to the terms used for it or what exactly it’s called but I seriously dislike how poses distort our bodies. I can lift my hand above my head without my shoulder going out of whack, my avatar should be able to as well.
I totally agree, and wonky elbows.
And bums.. for the love of my bum!
Shae Sixpence grins.
Gracias Shae, I appreciate you taking the time for the interview!
Bouncer Criss says cut.
Shae Sixpence snickers, “Yay!”
