So if you guys remember reading my blog post about my Secret Linden Crush, you know that I have the biggest crush on Patch Linden. So much so, that I have plurked about him quite a few times. The first time I ever met him was at a Linden Meetup and I talked about that in this plurk. I even took pictures standing beside him and shared them (I know, I’m ridiculous lol)! Recently I saw him again (from far away) at the latest Lab Chat and again stole some pictures of him, because HAVE YOU SEEN HIS AVATAR, and shared them on plurk again. Well I guess my best friend (and totally evil person) Zaara Kohime saw my plurk and decided to find a way to reach out to Patch so she can surprise me on my rezday. Yes, these are the kinds of things that give this woman pleasure, TOTALLY TORTURING ME!
Anyhow, there I was, just a few hours ago, standing on a pose stand on my platform making funny faces at my camera when some person lands right in front of me. I zoom out and completely FREAK OUT! Then next thing I know he says this:
[12:10] Patch Linden: I want a picture with you!
[12:10] Strawberry Singh: OMGGGGGGGGGG
[12:10] Strawberry Singh: YYOUU
[12:10] Strawberry Singh: I
[12:10] Strawberry Singh: OMGGG
[12:10] Patch Linden: Happy 9th Rezz day! :D
[12:11] Strawberry Singh: I am sorry, you just completely startled me
[12:11] Strawberry Singh: LOL
[12:11] Strawberry Singh: thank you <3
[12:11] Patch Linden: Haha! You’re welcome.
[12:11] Patch Linden: Someone put me up to this. :P
[12:11] Strawberry Singh: LOL I am sure I know who it was
[12:11] Strawberry Singh: God I am completely red
[12:11] Patch Linden: Hahaha
So of course a minute after that Zaara came landing on my head too. I knew she totally planned this! It was sweet of her though to risk her Second Life by contacting a Linden to come and trespass onto my platform and startle me. These are the kinds of things she does for her best friend! I took a picture of us three together, even though Zaara and I were totally wearing the same outfit, lol! Then to keep him on my platform even longer (because HAVE YOU SEEN HIS AVATAR) I asked him if he would let me take a yearbook picture of him for my Yearbook Challenge and he so nicely agreed! Here it is:
I have to admit, this is probably one of the best rezday presents Zaara has ever given me. I have no idea how she pulled it off but I love her (and kinda hate her) for it. Thank you Zaara and thank you Patch for being so sweet and not making me feel like a crazy fangirl (even though this post proves that I kind of am)!
I have had a bunch of you guys message me inworld and on social media too to wish me a happy rezday. Thank you all so much. This has been the BEST DAY EVER! <3
UPDATE: Patch was recently interviewed on Mainland Matters so I thought I would share the post here too. It’s a great piece. He shared his five favorite mainland destinations: The Interview – Patch Linden
