Being A Second Life Socialite

Ok, ok. Recently, a new guy friend of mine observed that, “You are quite the socialite”. And I was amused at first and kind of saw his point, I mean, yes, I do go to a lot of parties and weddings and put in appearences at clubs and participate in charities. And then there’s the fact that this is not the first time a friend has made this observation about me. But does it count that I don’t feel like a socialite?

Kelly Killoren Bensimon who among other things stars in The Real Housewives of New York City is truly a socialite. I mean, she does so much more socialite stuff than I ever do, and like she is also Editor at Large for Hamptons Magazine and wrote The Socializer: Kelly Killoren Bensimon. And geez, she was a model and was even a world class swimmer, and does her Summers in the Hamptons. Kelly is a real socialite.

So, you see, I’m not a socialite at all… right? hehe Ok, maybe I am a little bit of a socialite but it’s Second Life and I’ve got to do something, right? And I never started out wanting to be a gadabout, but this led to that and now friends are calling me a socialite. Lawdy, lawdy. I think of myself as a gardener, by the way. And really, can you be considered to be a socialite if you host for a blues club in a junkyard? Seriously!
