Time Flies...

I was just looking through the blog today, when I noticed that, as of the 21st, I'll have been back for an entire year.

You know... Since the tiny, little year long break I took.

What? I was sleepy.

This is a really big deal for me for two important reasons:

1) I haven't gotten sick of writing in the past 12 months

2) Apparently, you haven't gotten sick of reading in the past 12 months

I hope that second one is true. It'd be pretty sad if I was talking to myself every other day.

I'm not saying it wouldn't be interesting. I still make myself laugh.

Still, I like knowing that I haven't gone all the way crazy yet.

One of the few things I have left to cling to is that I don't talk to myself.

That and the not eating human flesh.

Though I am a little hungry...

Anyway, I appreciate you guys taking the time to read my ramblings.

And not calling the police.

I really appreciate that part.

You guys are all right.

I was talking to Susan about it earlier and she also pointed out that we're coming up on four weeks and I should probably start working on the fan pack.

This lead to my greatest idea of all time...

Actually... The Twatch was my best idea of all time.

This one is right up there though.

I'm going to do an anniversary fan pack. 1 full year in the life of [GM]Dave.

I'll look back at some of my favorite posts, the moments that made my year, and all of the crazy shit that I never got around to mentioning.

You'll laugh. You'll cry.

You'll probably laugh again.

Then you should probably see a psychiatrist because you're starting to sound a little bipolar.

One week from today (or so), I will be sending out the 1st annual [GM]Dave Anniversary Gift Pack.

I feel there should be a "palooza" at the end of that.

Anyone who donates $5 or more will become a member of the official [GM]Dave fan club and will gain all the exclusive benefits of club membership:

- the fan pack
- my gratitude
- your choice of small European nations to govern when my plan for world domination comes to fruition

I know what you're thinking. This deal couldn't possibly get any better.

You're wrong.

So very, very wrong.

As a limited time offer, if you act immediately, you'll be done much sooner than someone who doesn't act immediately.

I'm practically giving you the gift of time.


And yes, the person who donates the most each month will get a special, unique, incredibly impressive opportunity to take part in the blog in a way of their choosing.

You can pick a story idea.

You can make up your own theme week.

You can ask me to kick a puppy.

The possibilities are limitless.

Warning: possibilities are incredibly limited. No furry porn. Don't make me hurt you.

I would like to point out that the past few top donators have asked me not to do anything special for them. While I am very grateful for their thought and kindness, you can feel free to ask for anything you may like.

After I say no several times, I'm sure we can come to some compromise.

Anything for my loyal readers.

Seriously though. No furry porn.

But would you kick a furry?

Just wondering, honestly.

Not even remotely tired of reading your stuff, by the way, sir.

whoa... almost a year since the Joyous Return... nice.

Good news you aren't getting bored... i suppose the blog not being wholly limited to ff xi must help keeping it fresh a bit? i know it makes it even better to read...

Man, I need to find another job. Curse my old one for laying me off! I must have this next fan pack!

At 8:19 PM, Blogger Adrian said...

Actually, I've found the posts lacking much oomph back in the old days.

More of the same - no offense meant.

Also, it feels like I'm browsing Wikipedia with all the asking for donations. :/

Hey, it's the First-Annual-GM-Dave-Fan-Club-apolooza!

I so call Sweden. And if that doesn't count as small, I'll gladly take Ireland instead.

At 10:33 PM, Blogger J. Scarper said...

Yeah, now that the IRA's gone, it ought to be a nice enough place...

Hey, Dave? Can I have Latvia please?

At 3:06 AM, Blogger Dice said...

Now now, Paul, Sweden are for the swedes.

I'll take it. Born, raised and currently living there.

I love the blog, and I will always read, even though I don't play FFXI anymore.

Having said that...

I honestly think that your Anniversary Fan Pack should go out to all the fans that have donated over the past year, not just to fans who donate this month. If you're doing something special specifically for your continued readership/donatorship, everyone who has contributed over the past year should be included, even if they can't donate this month.

Those are just my two cents.

Love the blog, [GM]Dave.

Can I have the Netherlands?

At 9:31 PM, Blogger Nick said...

But furry porn makes the world go round...

For people who like bestiality but refuse to admit that anyway.

Regardless, I do enjoy the fresh change of pace from the old setting, but I do oh-so-miss the Jormy feedings.

Btw, eating the flesh of humans if perfectly fine if they're stupid... they needed to be removed from the gene pool anyway.

What is it with my favorite bloggers bashing us furries?

first Wil Wheaton and now you?

We're not beastophiles! Hell, some of us dont' even like the anthropomorphic furry porn...granted we're a minority and some of our more interesting fandom members might need to be assaulted with lysol...

At 11:36 AM, Blogger Blake said...

Dave, do we receive fan packs for donating once? Or, each time we donate $5, we get a fan pack? Little unclear.

At 11:15 PM, Blogger RSS adder said...

Without fail, every time I visit the blog I am destined to lol hard or get at the very least a strong dose of the funnies.

Thank you for writing theses [GM]Dave they make my day every time.

Oh and your repose to "Allison the Thief" in the comments of the "If You Can't Beat Them..." were gut bustingly funny. I don't think I have ever read comments reach that lol level (LL for short and yes I trademarked that)

Keep on writing [GM]Dave, I love every single story.

Yay writing in this blog, but remember poor Goblin Smithy?

On Hiatus


That doesn't mean the blog is ending. Far from it.

It's depressing to keep checking that log and seeing that message. Just a goodbye/"Oops, I guess it is ending!" post would be enough. :)
