Another big busy week here at Gamerwife HQ. I got to participate in my first FGB Con-At-Home, talking about conventions with Jessa Philips, Mia Moore, Meghan Gotch, Amanda Brand, and Katherine Erlikh. You ladies are awesome and I had a great time, even if I had trouble hearing you guys to start. You can check out the whole thing here.

I also got to cobble together a website for my neighbor and meet with a new potential client for a very exciting project.

Oh, and some good news for those of you following the saga of my lost wallet. Apparently someone dropped it off at a Boston Police department, so I know where it is. I just need to figure out how to get it back to me in Canada.

This weekend will likely be spent getting some guest posts ready & maybe, finally, working on that top secret project with Rick I’ve been hinting at for months.

Link time!!

A handy list of the ways in which men who game enjoy privilege. Print it off to hand to the next “mansplaner” you meet.

Best photo on the internet? A lama in a bikini holding a gun.

Pigs that play video games!! From my hometown, no less.

The importance of romance in video games.

Loving these additions to the original GoT cast as 80’s/90’s hipsters.

Games for women that are a little more blue than pink… if you catch my drift. 😉

      I think Bran is my favourite, but the white walker in a wind breaker was pretty great too.

    I guess there are still honest, good hearted people around in the world! Hopefully you’ll be able to get your wallet back to you somehow. ^__^

      Yes, I am very lucky. And really, a road trip to Boston might not be the worst thing in the world.
