Gacha is Just A Cruel Taunt!

I don't get it.

Oh I go.  I fight to get in so I can stand there and be cool.  I am not stupid.  I wouldn't want anyone to think I am not cool.  I want to be able to complain about not being able to get in, and scream that I made it when I know others are still sitting there hitting the teleport button every 2 seconds and praying to the teleport gods.  When I get there I wander and I look at what the machines are, once they rez.  That can take a couple of days.  I pretend I am really pissed and that everyone else has some nerve using so many prims when I am in the room and want to move.  I know how to keep it all about me.  Just because I don't get something doesn't mean I don't know how to have fun.

I miss the days when we had those big ballroom skirts where you could like take out 8 - 10 avatars when you turned around.  There would be no way they would be able to see those little machines if you wore one and stood  in front.  At least I could pass the time pissing off people until I could spend my Lindens.  So much of the real joy has been taken out of Second Life now.

I kind of think that Gacha is meant as a thumbed nose at us.  I think it is like, "What a bunch of idiots, standing there putting in their quarter again and again and getting the same plain brown block of wood instead of the carved statues of ivory or silver or gold. Suckers. Got to run to make another bank deposit . . . "

Is that even remotely kind?

And then you get to go home with 23 little ugly something or another's instead of the one cute bunny you really wanted.  I never even try for the rare stuff because that is another code word, like Gacha, only this one means "bahahahahahaha."  I just want one of the normal things offered.  I don't even insist on a colour - just one normal thing.  Like if the set up is a cool garden house with flowers and pots and little characters and nifty poses, I get the grass . . . over and over and over again.    I have no idea what to do with all the lame ass stuff I get because I had no idea what I was going to do with the cute bunny if I got it, I just knew I had to have one because everyone else did and they took a picture of it with them for their blog post and got 99+ views in Flickr.  I really want to get 2 views on Flickr and one of them not be my mom.  Strawberry Singh had a bunny and once Strawberry Singh has a bunny . . . EVERYONE has to have a bunny.  That is just the way SL Fashion works.  You are nobody if you don't have what Strawberry has. I want to be a Strawberry too.

I take a picture with the block of wood and get no views.

I can go back 8 days later and try again and still get a brown block of wood.

Meanwhile 80 other people have also had 99+ views on flickr with their bunny.

I am not bitter.

I just think it is pretty damn rude for them to set their machines so that I never win.  Even when I use a really well disguised alt tell everyone that I know Strawberry Singh, they never give me the damn cute bunny. 

I don't even like brown.

Guess what you are all getting for Christmas next year?  I will give you a hint.
