Welcome!

Wello, hello there!

If you're here, then I guess that I should say something about myself or this blog, but I'm not sure of what I can say that won't sound stupid or contrived. I'll give it a go nonetheless:

Before I got into spewing written vomit all over my keyboard blogging, I did some freelance work for IGN.com and its defunct sister site, Green Pixels. I wrote a couple of articles for GamingAngels.com before finding my way back to IGN's Games Help Channel. If you're a gamer then there's a slight chance that you could be familiar with some of my work. Maybe you needed a little bit of help with Final Fantasy Tactics Advance?

…No?

How about Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time? Because finding some of those Treasures is kind of a pain in the ass.

Not so much...?

Okay then... Here's some non work-related stuff:

I'm an extremely moody and eccentric water sign; I'm married to a brilliant bloke by the name of Jeremy, who works in the videogame industry, and we made two lovely little girls (Midget and Munchkin) who simultaneously amaze and annoy the fuck out of me every single day. I'm a stay-at-home mom (big surprise!) with social anxiety and some Bipolar II disorder on the side, which is why I created this space: I needed an outlet -- somewhere to let off steam about shitty drivers and the shitty stunts my kids pull, or to geek out about The Walking Dead and how funny The 40-Year Old Virgin is after a bazillion viewings. I am mildly obsessed with Portal, Resident Evil, and BioShock Infinite.

I suppose the fact that I swear (a LOT) might be worth mentioning. I feel like there's something extremely cathartic about letting out a good F-bomb; sometimes I like to string a bunch of profanities together in an attempt to get creative. So, if you find any of the seven dirty words at all offensive (because I use all of them) you may want to proceed with caution.

Also, I think the word "doodie" is funny.
