The New Job

I have had a few people asking me for more details on the new job, or asking me how my first week went.

Folks, getting the job was an achievement and a cause for celebration.

Doing the job... is work.

Paychecks are nice.

Weekends are nice.

Work... is work.

ZigguratCon

This June, in the middle of the Iraq occupation, the first RPG convention will be held in a war zone.

"Here in Iraq, we do many things on the different Forward OperatingBases to help keep our spirits up," said SPC David Amberson, the Con'sorganizer. "Here at Camp Adder/Tallil Airbase, we have lots of sportsactivities -- baseball, football, dodgeball, kickball -- and we workwith many marathons across the US like the Boston Marathon. This is agreat way to improve morale among the troops, but what about those whoprefer Role-Playing Games?"


Big Name Geeks like muskrat_john and wilwheaton have been talking this up, saying what a wonderful thing this is, and pledging to donate game materials to be used as prizes.

I, um...

I think this is horribly inappropriate, and I'm embarassed for my hobby.

EDIT: Locking this, now. You didn't play nice.
