Seraphim is an amazing site that comes to life because of the spectacular team that contributes to it each day. Seraphim Spotlight is a monthly piece that focuses on our bloggers who make this site what it is today. For the month of August I was able to snag Jacq Daniels for a quick interview. Jacq is our dedicated information manager here at Seraphim. I hope you enjoy getting to know our girl.
1. How did you discover Second Life?
Before SL, I was part of a Moroii RP on IMVU. You know, long ago when the earth was young? The RP dissolved due to court drama so a friend started scouting new RP situations for us, and she stumbled on a similar clan in SL. I was bored, so I tagged along! That didn’t pan out, but I stuck around, anyway.
2. What is your most treasured item in your inventory?
I use these HUDs to store notecards and keep my inventory tidy. One of them is filled with letters from friends and notecards of quotes and pictures. I would delete my entire hair folder before I let go of that HUD.
3. If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Anyone in the whole world? Helen Mirren, absolutely. She’s fierce and gorgeous and comes off as both classy and fun.
4. If you had to choose to live without one of your five senses, which one would you give up?
Smell, easily. Oh, how much easier it would be to live with gross boys if I could not smell them!
5. If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Set up trust funds for my nephews. Well… maybe get lunch on the way to set up trust funds for my nephews. I have needs and cheeseburgers are definitely among them.
6. What would be your “perfect” day?
Books, snacks, and an umbrella on a boat by myself. I mean, you can come if you want, but you have to be quiet, okay? I just want to float and read and chill. I could be happy that way for a while.
7. What fad do you wish would come back? Which do you feel should stay gone forever?
Remember those little clips people put on oversized tee shirts? I just googled, they were actually called shirt clips. Okay then. Anyway, I’d love to have those back. But if Hammer pants could stay gone forever, that would be great.
8. What is “home” to you in Second Life or Real Life?
In SL, home is primarily the platform I have next to my wife’s office skybox. We have a house, but we hardly use it. In RL, it’s a great house in the middle of nowhere. Seriously. I can’t even get pizza delivered here.
9. What are your three favorite albums? Why?
“Eagles Live” is my absolute favorite album ever. The incredible talent of the band in its (mostly) raw form is just insane. My Chemical Romance’s “I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love.” Come on, there’s a song on there about Dawn of the Dead, what’s not to like? Umm. Hmm. I guess Anna Nalick’s “Wreck of the Day” for three. You know how some therapists like for you to pick a personal theme song? Mine is on this album. I’m not telling which song, though.
10. Where’s Waldo? Really… Do you know?
For a while, Waldo was stashed in my Tera account. We used him for guild games and election campaigns. I eventually had to delete the character after the strangers wanting to molest him made it too difficult to quest. People are creepy.
