A Few Notes

Three matters to deal with:

1) Lack of Update Yesterday

Sorry there was no update yesterday. Between work, gaming, and some semblance of a life, I've been burning myself out lately. I've actually started going narcoleptic at my desk, randomly falling asleep while typing (ie. the tarantula incident).

I needed to take a night off and get some sleep. I still don't think I've had enough, but I feel a hell of a lot better. Needed to recharge my batteries.

As for the days without updates, unfortunately shit happens. I can't control the universe (yet), so some days I'm not able to sit down and write up an update.

Some days I'm so tired/annoyed that I can't think of anything funny to write. I've tried writing on these days and the feedback hasn't been great. It feels too forced.

Hopefully, these absences will be rare, but they are going to happen.

I'd like to invite all of my readers to send me any fan work/art that they like. Should a day come when I can't update, I'll at least try and put up some fun fan work.

Anyway, on to subject number 2...

2) August Fan Week

That's right, folks. It's fan week time again, that special time of the month where we all come together to celebrate my greatness.

I have a few theme ideas for the week, but I wanted to know if you readers had certain things you'd like to know/hear about.

If there is anything you'd like to know/hear about, feel free to post it in the comments section of this post and I'll work it in as best I can.

Now, there are good ways to do this and bad ways.

Good Way: [GM]Dave, I've always wondered does Susan get jealous of female players hitting on you?

See, that's good. It offers some room for discussion and is not strange.

Bad Way: [GM]Dave, what are you wearing?

See, that's bad. It offers room for discussion, but room that no one really wants to go into. You are scary. Please discontinue breathing at your earliest convenience.

This is your opportunity to voice your opinions and see more of what you like.

I will probably ignore many of these opinions, but that's only because I ignore most people.

On to subject 3...

3) Fan Club pack

As most of you already know, anyone who donates $5 or more during the month becomes part of the [GM]Dave fan club. All fan club members receive a free gift pack at the end of the month that includes some fun pictures, exclusive stories, and whatever else I think to include.

To make the pack even more palatable, I'd like to hear your suggestions about what else to include. More stories? More Susan stories? Just let me know.

Also, if you submit fan work/art, it can be included in the fan pack to be appreciated by other readers.

That's everything, folks. I'll be back later this evening with an actual update.

Get some sleep bro. People who hang in the balance on your blog are fuckin pathetic anyways.

I've got some FFXI artwork in my DA gallery. They're just kinda tucked in there, but I wouldn't mind a plug for my art ^.^

Hot milk with a dash of honey and a good slosh of Mr. Daniels always used to help me sleep (though, that might have had more to do with the fact that it was yummy, so I'd have about 5-6 of them)

Hope you're feeling better soon <3

[GM]Dave, really, I just have to ask...

What are you wearing?

:-P Sorry, sorry. I couldn't resist. ^.^

Get some rest. My nasty insomnia makes me treasure the rare times that I'm actually tired. You should take advantage of it.

At 9:24 AM, Blogger Seritle said...

I have something to ask.
[GM]Dave, why did you pick Jormy out of all of the horrific, enormous, and ass raping dragons?

At 9:50 AM, Blogger paduse said...

Enough of this "my life is too busy" shit... suck it up, you big baby.

At 11:01 AM, Blogger Useless said...

Ooh Ooh, I wanna play.

[GM] Dave, I would like to hear your opinions on current Movies, TV,(Besides what it's doing to the brain functions of our children) Books,, or whatever.

What's good and what's not entertaining to the Almighty [GM] Dave?

Your poor-and-thusly-not-able-to-join-the-fanclub-fan,

3) have sex with susan

4) drink some more jack daniels

5) pass out on friday and wake up on sunday...just watch out for that hangover, its killer.

All Mighty [GM]Dave...are we ever going to see your mother again (see: the person who you fell out of)? Is she still banned? does she get along with Susan?? and Who's Mithra Char is Better The NM MOM or [GM]Dave's woman??

your devoted underling....we are not worthy

At 1:48 PM, Blogger dickkead said...

[GM]Dave, why do you keep calling Susan your girlfriend when we all know that's your boyfriend.

I know what Dave is wearing! It's that shiny shimmery GM armor! I love the way it sparkles!

Reeree says if you don't know how to spell dickhead then you must be one. I disagree. I think there are lots and lots of body parts that can't spell.

I created an account just to post to this; I feel it's that important. (irrelavent information at best) Please keep up the good work, but do get some sleep tonight. Thanks to you, my exasperating workday becomes a bit calmer; I truly enjoy your blog. ... Though jealousy isn't usually my forte, I notice an infrequent tendency toward Susan, she has a real great guy on her hands. Thanks for keeping us all smiling, laughing and constantly wiping the drinks of our screens.

Actually, the reason my name is spelled wrong is because it's a play on words for my REAL name.

Richard Keade

Wow, don't you feel stupid.

(plus, it's been my screen name for 12 freaking years.

At 4:37 PM, Blogger tarinakarelia said...

At 4:38 PM, Blogger Zlo said...

wait are gmdave and goblin smithy one person?

At 8:39 PM, Blogger Kuponutz said...

How about a post where [GM] Dave meets Goblin Smithy while answering another stupid GM call about Overgrown Rose?

I'd love to see Dave and Smitty interact about how stupid players are.

At 1:22 AM, Blogger Blogger#B-2874 said...

I've always wondered what Davey does when he's presented with a completely legitimate GM call from an intelligible and respectful player...

At 7:55 AM, Blogger Wussie said...

How about [GM]Dave leaving prank GM calls for other GM's to handle, just to piss them off because [xxxxxx], that'd be much fun! :D

At 8:37 PM, Blogger Zamphire said...

Have the fan packs gone out yet?

At 3:10 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Just wondering... does Susan aspire to anything else than being "[GM]Dave's woman"? Call me crazy for asking a person of the female persuasion her opinion... I like to experiment with ideas... :D
