1) You wake up and realize you’ve been dreaming in 32-bit color that isn’t perfectly rezzed
2) You spend more time deciding what your avatar will wear than yourself and start referring to your closet as your inventory
3) You start having less sex with your significant other and more with other residents
4) You start ignoring certain vital bodily functions, including sleep, while on SL

When you are amazed that you can see more than 60M in RL.

When you are caught in traffic and blame lag and other people using too much bandwidth.

When you try to figure a way to get past the firewall to download SL at work.

When your phone bill exceeds your yearly billing rate from calling all of your new overseas friends on SL.

When you plan your day in RL around the events and/or live musicians appearing at your club of choice.

When you send IMs to the person sitting across the room from you, who is also on SL, instead of talking to them.

When you dream that prims are chasing you after constructing an entire sim. lol

When you go to rent a house or apartment and ask the landlord how many prims are allowed.

When your dreams have text in the lower left-hand corner.

When you wonder whether you did “that” in sl or fl.

When you look around you in fl and wish you could just build what you need/want with prims.

When you look at something in fl and think you could have built it with a lot fewer prims.

When you stop referring to “real life” as such and start calling it “first life” (fl).

When you change your browser’s homepage to secondlife.com.

“…when you throw everything you own into the nearest closet / cupboard and mutter, “I’ll file it by folders later.”…” => check. :D

As for the shoes and walks, that’s kinda true iRL also, no? I certainly walk differently on high heels or sneakers. I run differently on both also. :d

I’m obviously getting old then - I choose shoes on the basis of how well they match my outfit / whether it is warm or cold or wet or dry outside … how I walk or run in them is pretty much out of my thoughts….!
