Head Games.

Tomorrow is my first day back at the store, and I’m extremely amped to get back into it all again. The transition couldn’t have been better or any easier. Two months before Christmas, and tons to do. Things to implement, ideas to explore, and loads to catch up on.

But I could never complain; it’s still a dream job. And one that I already know how to do, and that I’ve missed quite a bit. In eight years, there has never been a single day that I’ve dreaded going into work.

As they say: he who dies with the most toys, wins.

    Thanks very much. It will probably consist of stacking lots of boxes.

    Thanks! Good luck is always appreciated.
    It's like slipping on an old shoe, though, so I can't go wrong…

    I'll be keeping my eyes on that company. Perhaps right after I nab some Corx, they'll be the next ones to be assimilated Stateside…

    OMG I can't believe you really just said that.
    And yet, I'll take that sound advice, strangely.

    I'm going back to managing a brilliant games store across the Bay. I really loved being there for the years prior to my Edinburgh excursion, and had hoped there'd be a place for me when I came back. It's more than retail work, of course…there's painting and teaching classes and schmoozing at industry events…and lots of toys.
    Have I mentioned the toys?

    Sounds like a great job!

    Oh, it is. I'm a lucky jerk.
    Then again, I could never do something I wasn't excited about. Does that make me spoiled?

    You're odds-on to be the Big Winner then!
    Just … don't collect your winnings anytime soon, OK?

  20. FunkyPlaid Says:

    Heh. The winnings are really nothing but a sea of dice and Gamer poop, which is worse than seal poop.
    Just wait. I'll show you.

    Don't you threaten me, missy!
    OF COURSE stop by. It looks like I'll be alternating Sundays for a while until we get a perma-schedule settled. More as it comes.
