Honestly, I didn't think anyone would really fall for it. Sure, I bought a L$500 avatar from Extrovirtual (SLurl), got a friend to change her Display Name and set up a group for an appropriate title so I could photograph the tag, had certain Profile Feeds edited, and Photoshopped the tag into pictures of me then faked a map showing me somewhere I'm not allowed ... but did I make it that good?
No, I'm not Correspondent Mole. There is no Correspondent Mole. And there is no ChooChoo Mole, either, as mentioned in yesterday's post on this site. The train engine was completed just last night as my wife watched — yet she fell for the joke!

So, in addition to my thanks I have to tender my apologies for apparently being so good at this April Foolery. And my apologies to all the fine Linden Moles, each of whom I envy and look up to for their skills and generosity. In fact, I've long avoided buying the mole avatar knowing that it is the official one used by the Lindens and I haven't earned that honor.
It's flattering that so many felt that I could be so honored, but it just isn't the case. One day I might again be invited to write for the Official Blog (remember last Halloween?) but I doubt The Lab would ever hire another full-time writer (remember Hamlet Au?) let alone me.
I hope to see you around the Grid, though, especially the Mainland. And if you see me in my mole avatar ...
