So here's me back in the day (May 27, 2006). I used the name TatianaDokuchic which I then carried over to SL. This caused me a bit of trouble with people in SL who would accuse me of stealing my own identity. It took a bit of convincing to get them to understand that she was me
I didn't care much about my appearance (some things never change!) but really enjoyed building and playing (with a lot of cheats to avoid those endless hygiene & starvation issues). TheSims & then TheSims2 were my introduction to building in a virtual space and Tatiana's Tea Room was born.
I managed to cobble together Le Petit Trianon, The Queen's Hamlet and a bit of Versailles including The Hall of Mirrors ...
… and I STILL miss mirrors that actually work.
One of the reasons I came to SL was so that I could explore the architecture of these builds further.
I was very fortunate to make some fabulous friends including Skye, Bebe, & Wane over at the Simposium Forum which was run by Skye. We made the jump to SL together and the rest, as they say, is history.
I still have a profile over at Mod The Sims: Tatiana Dokuchic and apparently I'm still getting downloads. If only I had a dollar for every one of those!
