Uccie Poultry-Seale: What brought you to Second Life?
Punxsutawney Phil: I saw a some blog post about a Mole Day last year and it was being held on my day. This year, I saw the same celebration encroaching on my day again, so I wanted to see what it was about.
UP-S: What brought you to Bay City?
PP: This is where the big party will be, right? Saturday, February 4th, from 11 AM to 1 PM (SL time), I read. And there's entertainment. DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream to start followed by a live performance by Oblee (Obleoinkment Wrigglesworth) at Noon.
UP-S: Everyone in Bay City seems to have a job or favorite activity. What is yours in Our Fair City?
PP: I don't have one. I'm pretty busy back at my burrow in Pennsylvania. Maybe after the big day I'll stick around and see what's shakin'.
UP-S: Do you spend much time outside Bay City?
PP: Well, DUH! I just got here!! But I will explore once I figure out why all these moles are digging groundhog holes all around town.
UP-S: What advice would you give to someone looking to move to Bay City?
PP: Dig down about 3 meters, lay a concrete slab, then put the fill back. That should keep all those moles from digging around and putting holes in your property.
UP-S: Bay City is not like typical Mainland, of course, but what do you think of the "wild frontier" outside Bay City?
PP: I haven't seen it yet, Still looking about in Bay City, but from what I see on Kinnaird's blog (http://slmainlandmatters.blogspot.com), it looks great!
UP-S: Do you consider your Second Life persona a "character" or a representation of who you are in Real Life?
PP: Since I'm not the original Punxsutawney Phil (legend says I'm immortal, but there's a new one every 6-9 years, really), I'm more of a character. And many towns have a groundhog. It seems Bay City is at least a little original, what with Moles, and all.
UP-S: Do you have a philosophy for Second Life?
PP: Winter comes, Winter goes. Windlight is forever.
UP-S: What ONE thing should anyone not looking in your Profile know about you?
PP: Profile? Is that like Facebook? Check http://www.punxsutawney.com/phantastic-phils
UP-S: Any last thoughts you'd like to add?
PP: Happy Mole Day, Bay City! Now how about pouring one out for a groundhog, too?
