Job Offer

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Today I received this very legitimate job offer, from what is clearly someone who is a serious player in the video game industry. At the very least they are going to be well known in the game industry soon.

“I came across your resume. I have clients that are very into gaming, and have loads of money. They are looking to invest in a company that produces online games. What they would like me to do is round up a small team of people who can put together one for them. This would basicly be like starting up any company. You would not make anything till the game has been made and the investors have decided its worthy of investment. But once that happens then you would become a partner with that company being that you are one of the founding members. A lot like most companies. So I am looking for people with your kind of skills that can demonstrate they can make this happen. We will have weekly meetings to go over our goals and log and discuss our progress. This will be a colabrative effort. Please email me back and let me know if you are interested.

John Lankford”

To further demonstrate the sheer gravitas of this offer, it came from a Yahoo email address, which as we all know is a sign of a businessman who is heavily involved in the software industry.

Saved In The Last Week

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Since my wife and I are getting our own business off of the ground, while at the same time raising a pair or wonderful, but horrifically expensive babies, we’ve discovered that we need to cut back on certain non-essential spending. This means we don’t go to the movies when we can stream Netflix, we don’t eat out when we can cook. It means I don’t get a new WH40K army no matter how awesome the models are. And we don’t spend money on the new World of Warcraft expansion.

Which as many of you are no doubt highly aware, comes out next week. Well for the holidays one of my relatives gave me a gift certificate to a video game store. The amount was far more than I need to pre-order Cataclysm. When I pointed this out to my spouse, she responded that this meant that I would have a copy of Cataclysm, and she would not. Which has the potential to degenerate into what you and I might refer to “Marital Strife.” Or what my wife referred to as “A twisted nightmare realm of fear, pain, and torn mangled flesh from which you will never awaken.”

I pointed out that we could probably just spend a little bit of extra money and get two copies, and hopefully avoid the whole “nightmare of mangled flesh” thing, and she agreed that it seemed like a good idea.
