Meeting SL Friends in RL

Hello there! Been a long time!

This post really isn't about meeting SL friends in RL. It is more about running across people in RL that make me think "That person reminds me of so and so in SL"

Don't know what I mean? Let me explain:

I work at a community college and I see students fairly often. There is a particular student that comes into our lunch room and I always think to myself "That is what I imagine Aisuru looking like in RL". I don't know Aisuru in RL but I do know that she has a passion for Asian culture, etc. and that her AV is Asian. So for some reason whenever I see this petite Asian student who dresses really cute I think of Aisuru. As a matter of fact, in my mind she is Aisuru. When I see her in the hall, I think "Oh there is Aisuru again" I don't know if Aisuru is Asian in RL...for all I know she could be a blonde?

There are other people that I will see in RL and I think to myself...I bet that is what Sai looks like or Alicia looks like. This is just based off of the bits and pieces that I know about their RL and what I know about them in SL.

Does anyone else do that or is it just me?

I often gaze around the office and wonder who else is in SL. Probably no-one, but it's fun to imagine.

The funny thing is that most of the people I have met in RL that are long time friends in SL look very different from their AV's. There are only a few that are similar.

What I find myself doing is looking at things and thinking about the prims required to make it. The "modern" furniture at our admin offices looks very SLish. :D
