"Slingo" is a popular SL game, similar to Tringo / Bingo etc.

As for "gluing Dwagons to the rooftops"... give them a cookie and they'll probably let you. :D

None of those fit the reasons I stay with SL regularly. For me it is the friends I've met, I really don't care about group chat as I don't use it. I was hired by Electric Sheep, not affiliated with Linden Labs until they left back in 2008. I now do work with some machinima making ads for Warner Bros Sims.

I haven't visited the WB sims yet. That should be interesting.

(of course you realize this blog post is a tongue-in-cheek satire). ; )

I was usually sent to a location to film whatever they wanted using an avatar they supplied, so never actually been to the sims themselves, but do plan on it.

giggles! Though I spend most of my down time stuck staring at a TE (Tiny Empires - for those who don't know what TE stands for )Hud most of the time... ROFL!
