House of Paincakes today (an honor which usually falls on Lauby's shoulders, but apparently he was too busy with things that he'll no doubt assure me are not in any way related to Fallout New Vegas) I realized something- its readership is about to surpass Dick Move and in record time, no less.
Let's set the mood for the rest of this micro rant (too obtuse?- meh fuck it, if you get it, it's kind of hilarious).
A little over two months ago, Lauby and I started out quest to dominate the tabletop community by attempting to create a place where everyone is welcome and good ideas are promoted rather than shit on. So far I think it's been a smashing success, growing to nearly 100 readers in a very short time for a hobby blog (just about 2 months give or take). So why the bragging? Well, it's a happy and sad time for me here. Dick Move has still yet to hit 100 followers. We all want to see our children grow up to be successful, but the day that you realize that they are better off than you are is a little bit of a downer. Knowing that your son can now destroy you and have his way with your wife is a sobering thought. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to host an exclusive pity party; seriously, how fucked up would it be to complain that something I'm involved in is too popular? Neither am I really trying to brag. I like to think of myself as a downright humble person at the end of the day. Astute readers will have noticed by now that with the exception of a few choice individuals, I usually criticize myself as much or more than anyone else I've made fun of. It's all in good fun, after all. I just thought that I'd take this occasion to reflect a little bit and share a random thought with you, the reader.
