Cuppycake of Cuppytalk showed us Herspace and wants to see other blogger’s Gamespace.

Myspace, carefully annotated and cleverly anonymized because I didn’t cheat and vacuum right before the photo:

Foton Gamespace Annotated

What you don’t see: the aforementioned unvacuumed floor, 15 stacks of books and 4 stacks of CDs, 2 bags of camera equipment and the dog sprawled on the floor licking the subwoofer. (WHY? WHY?)

Week of Fives: Bonus List! Five Things About Foton, the Person

Zonk of MMOGNation emailed that I was on deck for the blog chain letter, “This Will Never Make You Rich, but tell us 5 incredibly personal things about yourself anyways”.

Abalieno (of Cesspit) and Dundee (of Mythical) also tagged (and they were tagged by two friends … and so on … and so on) but they didn’t email and I usually don’t read the feed until Tuesday-ish — so no extra credit for them.

Just so you know, don’t send me a Myspace meme asking for 5 celebrities I’d do or 5 flavors I love because I won’t respond and the chain will die with you. I’m sure you already know how dangerous that would be.

Five Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me. (Well, how could you unless I told you?)

1. I graduated from the University of Illinois, aka The U of I. If you ever hear an Iowa alumnus refer to Iowa as The U of I, you have my permission to punch him (or her) in the face. Fucking posers.

2. My great room has been under major remodeling construction for the past two years. Original estimate – three months. I don’t want to talk about it.

3. I can’t sing. You know how moms always say you can be anything you want to when you grow up? Mine qualified that with “… but not a singer.”

4. I’m a music hag. My collection, at last count, totaled over 1500 CDs plus a 6-foot stack of vinyl. If you stop over at my house some day, bring your iPod, I’ll hook you up. Don’t ask about the construction though or you’ll be out on your ass.

5. I still have every box from every MMOG I have ever purchased, including the expansions. I actually pack the boxes in other boxes when I move. I just now realized how ridiculous that is.

Since I’m the last blogger responding (great), the bad luck is all mine … that is … unless … yes, it could work. I’m going to tag YOU, the AFK Gamer commenter community. If you have a blog and you’d like to join in, pop a trackback or ping to this post. If you’re not a blogger, give me 5 in the comments. Don’t be shy, takes 5 minutes, otherwise I’m doomed to bad blogger luck — which for me means guild tranquillity.


A dedicated online gamer for more than ten years now … I will buy just about any piece of crap developers throw inside a box and ship out to my favorite local retailer.

I have no credentials other than this: I play games.

You’re in my world now. Be afraid, be very afraid.
