    When I told my relatives, my sister's first reaction was "For Real?"

    I guess I should note this: my wife put on her PR hat and called the local newspaper about the event so they wrote it up. It's a goofy picture but it's kinda cool they picked it up...and even talked about my RPG stuff a little. The reporter had no clue what I was talking about though. Neither do my neighbors, who apparently *all* take the paper.

    Your wife just outed you as the neighborhood uber-dork Heh heh. It's ok, though - make her buy you Season Ticket cable tv package for football and then you get your Sundays to yourself. Tell her, "The humiliation is too unbearable so I have to butch myself up by watching football...and it's all your fault".

    My mom is trying to figure out a way that she can out me but, luckily, we have to pay for these types of stories here instead of getting the free PR. $500 for newspapers and $3,000 for those local tv "what's going on in St. Louis" type of shows. So I think I'll be able to remain anonymous for a while longer.

    Congrats on getting in the paper. Although, I hope I can join Ascension in remaining anonymous

    LOL. Let's stick with "sampling"...it sounds so much better. Hmmm. Bittersweet to be compared to Tom Cruise. I'm going to quit typing now and go jump on my couch.

    All-in-all, pretty cool of her to do that... Even if it dubs you as the neighborhood uber-geek!

    I want a t-shirt that says on the front "Ladies love my..." and on the back it says "uber-dork".
