Meme instructions: Share your answers to the following suggestions. Don’t forget to link your post in the comments.
Two online screen names you’ve had: Answering this one is tricky because my primary online identity other than Uccie is pretty much my Real Life identity. It’s the one I use for email to contact doctors and such and for a blog focused on Real Life. Since I won’t share that and I don’t otherwise exist online outside Second Life I don’t have an answer. I’ll just remind you that besides being Uccie I am Xandah and a pair of Zyxs (see here), Zyx Flux and Zyx Resident. When I played the Lego MMO I was known as Zyx Flux.
Two video games you’ve played: Do mobile games count as video games? Just the other day I donated our unused Wii console to a local charity so I have no other way to play video games. There’s a few games I dabble at on my iPad, but only two I regularly play – Full Deck Solitaire and Star Wars: Commander. I have the card game on my desktop and on my phone, too.
Two things you love about Second Life: I really marvel at the creativity. From landscaping to structures to the avatars people create, it is all magic. I also love the ability to communicate. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I’m often chatting with people from all over the world.
Two things you’ve done in Second Life: Flown an airplane and walked on the Moon.
Two things you still want to do in Second Life: Like Berry, I’d like to make my own skin and learn to make mesh objects.
Two things you like about your Second Life avatar: My boobs. That’s two, right? I’m getting into my late twenties now and my RL boobs found out about gravity so seeing perky ones in SL is a plus. And I like my toes. Thanks to SLink I don’t have to look at my broken, crooked, ugly RL toes.
Two of your Second Life Pet Peeves: Face Lights and Statue Avatars. Why go somewhere nice and just park your avatar? Especially when some regions have limited capacity.
Two things you did as a newb that you’re embarrassed of: Once I let something very, very adult and personal fly into a group chat window. I don’t recall what but I know the person in charge then is still upset with me after some five years. Can’t really think of anything else, but I’m sure I have a myriad of fox paws littering behind me.
Two of the most beloved things in your inventory: Sure. Pick something out of the tens of thousands of items spread across several identities. I’d be remiss if I didn’t pick my wedding ring and my collar so instead I’ll pick all my snapshots and chat logs/notes. With the way my memory has been I need these more than most people. Things can be replaced.
