So I'm at work today. I work as a janitor for an office building run by Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. My employer is called Aslan's Maintenance, who DHMC hires as a 3rd party.
Another Aslan's employee showed up to do work. I couldn't help but notice that he had a DQ t-shirt on. After some conversation, I asked if he had ever been on the Den. Low and behold, sporadically met Mischief Comics from VT. This is the first time I ever introduced myself as redneckpride4ever. Go figure our time cards are sitting right next to one another.
The world truly shrunk today. Still seems surreal.
While at work today, my wife told me over the phone that my 12 year old son beat DQ Builders' story this afternoon. Gotta say I'm proud- he beat a DQ game I'm yet to even touch (although as soon as I beat 7, Builders is my next conquest).
Incidentally,the dude's link leads to some tweet by someone claiming to be an astronaut. In fact, his link ain't no link- I searched the text of a tweet. And Google shows me nobody famous named astronaut Claire.
Wow... this is bizarre. Not to mention distressing, and unwelcome. What brought this on?
Whatevs. Find balance and acceptance elsewhere, you wont find it here, with that hair-trigger temper.
Still, good luck wherever you go.
I have no room to talk as far as hair trigger temper. I feel bad for going overboard on my own post, and frankly I want to apologize for my own statements. Had me a bad day, and when I saw that poser statement I blew my cork.
Seriously, what the hell is it about fandoms that bring about this holier than thou attitude?
"Oh, so you're a fan of something! Congrats! You know which Jedi scratched his balls in scene 3 of the first movie. You have the right to gloat since the Queen of England found you worthy of getting the key to the whole damn country of France. Go ahead with the moronic insults like noob and fanboy. You've earned it since you know which Jedi had jock itch."
And sorry if this sounds judgemental, but between video games sites, MTG sites and the egotistical weirdos I've met at my local game store, I just see a lot of it in the nerd realm. No, not everyone there, but enough for me to just wanna say that the reasons that D&D have a negative stigma have nothing to do with the religious over-zealotry of the early 80s. Its fine to have an opinion, a passion etc, but man, it just permeates gaming so much.
So if people feel like calling me a sheep humper, feel free. The life which I embrace has some lowlives too. I have a tattoo of the famous Yosemite Sam "Back off!" mudflap. Feel free to mock me for it. But I don't have any friends who spam boards deliberately insulting everyone as posers.
