I played a MUD on AOL when I was 16. I was so stellar and beloved (and ambitious and manipulative), they actually hired me to work for the game, believing me to be a 30 year old woman (my character was : gasp : female). Later, at our annual staff meeting, at GenCon in Milwaukee, I came out to Shilana, the Immortal of Love over a game of Settlers of Cataan, which was just being introduced to the States via the convention that year. Gamers have always, secretly, been my peeps, but the community and I have been in mutual neglect ever since my AP classes started. I'm ready to re-embrace. I'm ... very much less into party board games (e.g. Cranium). Like word games (Word Search, Bananagrams, Scattergories, etc.), but only with my mom so there's competition ;)
I'm a software engineer at a charity. Geek by day ... BUT! When the sun sets! ... Well, still a geek, but in lighting that is more flattering, which my cat appreciates.
