I’m sure after reading today’s post y’all are going to think that I’m totally insane. However, I have a sneaky suspicion that you guys might have already been thinking that from before so either way, I’m not going to lose anything by going through with it. Plus, it’s fun and I need entertainment in my life.
Have you ever read the children’s book “Flat Stanley?” It’s one I read to my students every year and then I have them do the Flat Stanley Project. Basically they have to mail a cut-out of themselves to a relative in a different city and that relative takes the cutout to different places and snaps pictures to show them where they all went. It’s a fun project and we all get a giggle out of it. I figured I’d bring it into SL and have some fun with Mr. CEO of Second Life himself. You may remember that back in May I met Mr. Rod Humble (aka Rodvik Linden). Well, what I did was use that image I took of him that day and made a “Flat Rodvik Linden” cutout that I can attach to myself and take him with me as I travel the grid, mainly because I’m slightly crazy and I find goofy things hilarious. I figured this would also make a great meme because what I love more than doing goofy things myself is watching you guys do goofy things and laugh my ass off as you do them!
Meme Instructions: Pick up a Flat Rodvik Linden from my marketplace store for free. (Or make your own using my image or your own image of Rodvik.) Wear or rez him as you travel the grid. Take him to places you think he might not have seen yet and show him a good time. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post or images in the comments of this post so we can all come by and see where you took him!
Since I couldn’t remember the last time I went out on an SL date, I figured this would be a great opportunity to do it now. I thought I would really woo Rodvik so I took him to two of my favorite places on the grid. The beach was a given. I figured we’d hang out and sunbathe a bit and perhaps have a cocktail and maybe I could get him out of his clothes and rub some suntanning lotion on him but I dunno, he didn’t look like he really wanted to be there. He was kind of quiet and a bit flat looking.
Then I thought perhaps he was more of a party animal and dragged him to the 9th club by GOL. There was a sweet party going on, as always, and so I brought him into the middle of the crowd. We got lots of attention as people around us laughed and asked me if he was my boyfriend, to which I said OF COURSE! We danced shoulder to shoulder for a while until he started complaining about his back and how he wasn’t wearing the right dancing shoes. To be honest, he’s a bit of a delicate butterfly.
I then decided maybe it would be best if I took him back to my platform and
molest him show him my studio. He seemed a bit bored, even when I tried to give him a kiss on the cheek, it was rather awkward. He kept his hands to himself and kept looking the other way. Needless to say, I totally felt rejected. He then mumbled something about having to wake up early to organize his inventory and then just poofed out of there. I was a bit heartbroken.
I guess I didn’t score too well with Mr. Linden, maybe you will?
I admit that I was very relieved when no one else was on the sim at the beach when I arrived there with him because I was thinking to myself, “Berry, you have really lost your mind this time.” But when I landed in the crowded club, my first instinct was to quickly teleport out of there! Then I thought, what the hell, let’s just do it and went in. I was giggling to myself the whole time, especially when the crowd reacted to him and laughed. It was hilarious and great fun.
I am not sure how many of you will go through with this, but I’ll be honest, I am totally looking forward to seeing you guys get creative with him. But remember that there is a huge responsibility in looking after Flat Rodvik and there are certain rules which must be followed. Please be nice to him, don’t take him any place dangerous, don’t abuse him, keep him away from bright light, don’t get any water on him and never, ever feed him after midnight. But more than anything, let’s keep it PG. :P
