So when I was in college, my friends and I spent a lot of time building a text-based virtual world (a MUCK) that mimicked part of our campus. It was pretty meta. Anyway, we spent a lot of time programming things to make everything in the world interactive. One friend in particular, @phooky , was really good at programming our little virtual world and making everything do neat tricks. He built a ton of stuff. (1/2)

One day, back in the real world, we were talking about furniture. I don't remember exactly why, but I think friends were looking at furniture for their shared house. I swear to god, I thought, "Phooky should program a sofa." The absurdity of it didn't hit me until a moment or two later.

I kind of miss the days when spending so much time in a virtual world could bleed over into the real world like that. (2/2)


@twylo aggggggh yeeeeees I miss that so fucking bad about so many worlds I was a part of
