Creative gifting and fun

I dance with my family almost every night for almost two hours. It’s an amazingly intimate and fun time. We are often carrying on several conversations at a time, filled with inside jokes and stories at 60 miles an hour. Even slow nights are always fun and very special. You would think that the same people in the same room would get boring or at least be somewhat the same from one day to the next. But it’s so random and so different from night to night. One thing that I think makes it fun is Creative Gifting. One of the fun things we do sometimes is find funny things from the conversation in the catalog. visions of french fries dancing in their headsThere are so many wacky things, you really can’t think of something and not find it in the catalog.

Last night we were teasing Stephanie about French Fries because her fiancé is such a health nut she’s not allowed to eat French Fries. All of a sudden we were all French Fries and laughing so hard it hurt. Jokes about salt and wanting to get eaten followed and it was just a blast. The point is just to keep that in mind in a conversation because it’s so fun to give someone what they were talking about, whether it’s a big head, a French Fry avatar. If you can think of it you can probably find it and a few credits can make the night special for everyone. Also wearing and gifting a specific item makes everyone feel welcome and a part of the group. Be creative and have fun!

In the Matrix you can be as happy and have as much fun as you want.

IMVU is what you make of it just like your real life is, but unlike real life you can literally make it anything you want. Nobody’s real life is perfect but you really can’t or shouldn’t use that as an excuse for anything in here because your real life doesn’t matter. I know this is repetitive but the beauty of this place is that you can really be anything you want no matter what your life has been.

I talked to a friend today that had serious health issues and said that he was bitter because of his health and how hurt he had been in the past. He would up throwing his relationship away and blamed it all on his health and past. I tried to help him at the end, not to save that relationship (with my friend) but so he could at least do better in the future. Blaming other people or your circumstances is nice because it means you don’t have to try. But it also means you’ve given up any ability to change it. In here none of that matters very much and you can turn everything around or change anything you want at any time.

It’s hard to turn your real life around, to get a new job or start a new relationship or move can leave your life disrupted or even in a shambles for a long time. We’ve all been there and know it can takes years to get over major real life setbacks. But here, it’s like the Matrix. You can be the One if you believe. You can be as fast and as strong as you want to be. You can be as happy as you want to or as u can see yourself here. Close your eyes. Say a prayer if it helps. Put on some exciting or uplifting music and “Act the way you want to be.” You can’t help but feel better, almost immediately. If you act sexy, you’ll feel sexier, even if you didn’t before you started. You don’t have to fix everything or be perfect to feel better. Just act more that way and you will be that way.

sexy imvu fairiesIt’s almost like living in a dream. You can go with the flow letting it direct you, or you can consciously direct it. IMVU can be as fun as you want to make it. It’s a shame more people don’t realize this secret and have more fun. You are hereby unlocked from your situation, from your past and are now free to be anything you want.

You are now free to move about the country…

A land where anything is possible

Even the President uses IMVU on his oval office laptop, (but don't tell Michelle).

I mentioned in the post about Susan’s Wipeout Video, that it would be neat to have an oval office room in imvu. It was just a random thought as I was writing. Well wouldn’t you know it, a few hours later I got an invite to her oval office. We had a blast. We found some Obama masks and a Clinton mask and had a great time.

We don’t usually talk about politics much in here because this place is so international and you don’t want to turn people off unnecessarily. But there are so many possibilities with this. I can see being able to make mock commercials, funny remarks about current events or even staining a blue dress. I think Susan will probably make this room public too, and I’ll link that here so you can make your own imvu fun. The point though is like the title suggests, imvu really is the land where absolutely anything is possible.

IMVU Surfer Girls

I think Katy or someone said that this was like the early version of the Holo Deck on Star Trek and I can’t help but think that and see it when I see things like this.

You really are only limited by your imagination in here. Do you wanna be a rock star, go sky diving, or just date that cheerleader you loved in school? Do you want to make an oval office room, dress up and make political commercials out of sound bites? Or have aliens land and take over? Wander around an alien space ship? It really is the holo deck and you can do anything or be anyone you want.

You’ll like this Creative Vampire Room

I love creative rooms and recently found one of the most fun creative rooms, Psy & Sanguinarian Vampyre Lab, by XIIIDrDeath. It’s a vampire room from the description but it’s ultimately just an ultra creative room you will have a lot of fun in. You’ll want to go with a couple friends and just have a blast. Dress in something spooky or vampy and take lots of pictures! Here are a few of the ones I took. Send me yours and I’ll add them!

We all belong in The Psycho Ward

Psycho Ward, Insane Asylum by MyFriendBecah, is a must visit room for everyone in IMVU. It has to be one of the most creative rooms of all time. It is a blast to go to with friends and act a little crazy in. You’ll also want to keep your camera ready because you’re going to need it! There are a lot of pictures from here in my Christi Memories video, and I bet you’ll take pictures that you’ll enjoy and remember for a long time too. I recommend buying a straight jacket for extra effect. Oh and if you like fun music get the music from the shower scene in Psycho. (You can use this in your halloween mix and it’s fun to have!)

IMVU is crazy, but this place is the craziest of the crazy, but you can’t help but have a good time, trust me. Relationships aren’t just built on passion. Go here and share some laughter and leave your own comments or thoughts below, or even send me a picture and I’ll add it to the slideshow. Here are some pictures of my recent visit, as well as some previous visits.

Be creative

Don’t leave your profile blank. Give people a reason to pay attention to you, something in common and something to ask questions about. People will also search for other people with certain words in their profile. So put things that you do or like and which other people would search for there.

I had the questions, “What’s a MILF” as my tag line not because I didn’t know, but it was a great ice breaker. Say something that can start a fun conversation. Don’t waste that space because people have to make a decision about you based on that and a blank profile looks like you’re hiding things.
