A few days ago I was notified that Hayley Spore had added me as a contact on flickr. I took a look at her profile and photostream, and was amazed... I felt as if I had discovered a sister I was separated from at birth!
So I reciprocated... and then looked her up in-world. We exchanged some IMs, and then became friends. We've since met, and have had fun exploring SL and taking pictures.
She says I'm the reason she signed up for Second Life, which makes me very happy and a little proud.
I guess others have noticed the resemblance, too--last night I had the curious experience of being thought to be someone's alt!
