A Gentle NudgeAs I mentioned the other day, I'm still waiting for last month's donator to get back to me with his ideas for a theme week.
This got me thinking... When was the last fan pack sent out?
I'm supposed to be sending these things out around every four weeks to the super awesome readers who donate to the blog.
Someone should probably be keeping track of that for me.
Today, I came home and said hello to my lovely wife. I kissed her and then kissed my daughter.
She said "Check your e-mail".
No "hi". No "how ya doin'?".
I immediately realized this was bad.
So, I log into my e-mail and find a new message...
Hello GM Dave,
This is a not so friendly reminder from your lovely wife Susan that you need to get off your ass and start working on the fanpack. Last month's fanpack was sent out on October 28th and today is November 26th and you haven't even mentioned it on the blog.
If you want me to keep you around you better start bringing in all that money that I've come to expect. Now stop procrastinating and do your job.
P.S. I love you.
This is the part where I point out that she's literally ten feet away from me. She could have just reached over and tapped me on the shoulder.
Not my wife. No, sir.
If that wasn't bad enough, she later showed me a Polaroid of my DS. She's holding it captive until such time as I produce an actual fan pack.
She hasn't stipulated if it has to be funny.
I'm not going to take any chances.
So... One week from today, I will be sending out a brand spanking new fan pack to everyone who donates $5 or more.
The pack will include my usual insanity, some articles about things only I would find interesting, and whatever else I think will help me get my baby back safely.
Usually, I wouldn't negotiate with kidnappers, but she is also my wife. I couldn't do anything else.
Also, the FBI told me they don't kill women for stealing portable gaming consoles.
I filled out the form and everything.
And, as I've been doing the past few months, the person who donates the most each month gets special recognition. You can suggest story ideas, get fan packs you may have missed, have me kill a family member...
If you fill out the form.
Also, you get to pick your very own theme for an entire week. I write seven straight posts about whatever the hell you find funny.
You like Pauly Shore? I'll write a week about Pauly Shore.
(note: do not suggest Pauly Shore)
See? See how much I love you, my loyal readers?
She scares me a little.
