In a blog post yesterday, we announced that the Second Life Cheerleading Squad (SLCS) would return to London this weekend and that we would spotlight the squad and it’s members. SLCS Events Coordinator, Kristy Curtau, agreed to answer a few questions about the squad. In the first part of our interview with Kristy we asked her about her experience in Second Life:
1. How long have you been in Second Life?
742 days, so a little over 2 years.
2. What made you first join Second Life?
I saw a story about it on the news. I joined to see if it might be useful for somethings I was doing at work. Anyway, I signed up, checked it out, and when I presented my idea to my boss, he looked at me like my hair was on fire. lol In the process, I made some friends and decided that though it may not be for work, SL is a great way to have fun and meet awesome people , so I decided to stick around.
3. What are some of the strangest things you have experienced or seen in Second Life?
To many to list, but the one that made me LOL in rl the loudest…..A man came into Blackhearts one night on a horse. Somehow he made the horse dance while he was on it. That was funny. oh, and those snail races. What is that? That is what I love about SL. The absurd is normal.
4. Other than owning a business in Second Life and loving cheerleading, what are some other things you do while you are in Second Life?
Well, i don’t own SLCS myself or any other business. To much work. lol. I love meeting people. The main thing I love about my job as Event Manager at SLCS is that I get to meet so many wonderful people and see some many places. I go to a lot of live music shows too, some really great artist in SL. Oh, and shopping. I love shopping in SL. So much less expensive than RL. ☺
5. If you could invite anyone from RL into SL, who would it be?
Thats a tough one. Hmm, nobody serious. Probably a musicians or comedian. Somebody fun because SL is about fun to me.
Catch part 2 of our interview with Kristy tomorrow and catch the SLCS at the Retrograde Road Show this Saturday in Hyde Park, at 12pm slt!
