Title: OT: Announcement
Post by: greyorm on February 07, 2002, 05:08:41 PM
Today, a little after 3pm I became the proud father of another baby girl!  Alexandria and mom are resting comfortably at the hospital and all is well with both!

Ah, summoning demons left and right, are we?

Jeez, Jared. You make it sound like a combination of Eraserhead & She's Having a Baby.

Oh. Maybe that's not all that far off.

Anyway, congrats, Raven.

Congratulations on this most joyous of occasions.  I'm gonna miss you while you're gone (my baby girl is almost three, the boy, six).  I look forward to hearing about how she changes your ideas of gaming.

Salute!

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone! :)

And BTW, Fang, this isn't my first.  I already have two others of the same ages and genders as you do! It's already been joked about that I don't need to find a gaming group, I've grown my own!

In my venue as the local 'Answer Man' (I have a sign reading 'Any Question Answered,' that I show around every convention I go to.  Have a question?  Send it to whatiwanttoknow@mad.scientist.com!), I am frequently approached by local Scientifiction Fan Club Board members who ask 'where are we going to get more attendees?'  'Give birth to them,' has been my answer for more than 6 years.  So 'keep up the good work!'

(By the by, you're probably close to understanding why Scattershot has, as one of its adjuncts, a style for playing with children - that's adults with children - stuffed animals, action figures, counters, and et cetera, entirely optional.)
