the doldrums of summer


hurry up and wait

summer arrives

Summer is upon us and with the lack of an E3 this year, we cling to every bit of info released for almost any game.  Some have found light at the end of the tunnel with Divinity, Crucible, or Minecraft Dungeons.  As the original release for New World comes and goes, they continue to release more new mechanics and content for the Alpha, so work is continuing as we await that August release.

We have expanded our game and movie nights as we are in the doldrums of summer.  The nation coutinues to reopen from Covid, and SpaceX launches humans to orbit, we are in a historic era and at the cusp of a new age in gaming.  Bring on the summer!

what got you hooked on gaming?
When I was 12 years old, my older brother convinced our parents to let us play Ultima Online. The rest is history really. I would pretend to go to sleep and then get up in the middle of the night and cover the computer with pillows to muffle the AOL dial up tone LOL Then proceed to play until early morning hours. After my mom finally caught on I was banned from games. I rekindled my love for games at age 18 and have been playing games ever since.


what do you do for a living?
Client Relations and Clinic Management for a private urgent care

  • I'm from California and I chose to live in one of the snowiest cities in the US. No regrets. Would never move back.

  • I had a job as a Nanny for two different families for a total of 5 years...and I hate kids.

  • I hate scary movies... BUT I am extremely interested in them. I will only watch a scary movie if someone who has seen it tells me every detail from start to finish. I want to know the stories behind them but I am wayyy too jumpy for that shit.

I have 2 cats. Zuli, my tortishell mutt kitty who is an asshole. Adelaide, my Ragdoll designer kitty who is a fluffy asshole, but she was expensive so I love her anyways.

what's your favorite joke?

A man and a woman were waiting at the hospital donation center.

Man: What are you doing here today?

Woman: I'm here to donate some blood.  They're going to give me $5 for it.

Man:  That's interesting.  I'm here to donate sperm.  But they are paying me $25.

The woman looked thoughtful for a moment and the two chatted some more before heading their separate ways. Several months later the same man and woman meet again in the donation center.

Man: Oh, hi there! Here to donate blood again?

Woman: (shaking her head with her mouth closed) Unh  Unh.
