Christmas Dreams

Its 3 days before Christmas.
Since John’s announcement, to our Dork Tower fans asking them to open their hearts and help Dawn, and I.
 I have been thinking on the last few days and the overwhelming support that we have received. All of this selfless generosity makes me sad, but not in an emotional state of unhappiness that everyone has given to us. It’s just; I have never felt appreciated in this way since my time working for Pegasus Games.
The last nine years, I have worked at two separate jobs, and I will tell you, they have not been very satisfying. When I was at the store, every monument working there I felt a purpose. Helping people to find something that brought them pleasure, and enjoyment. It was like I had gained an inner peace to my life when I opened the door for that day, and greeted that first customer who walked in. A few years ago, I came across a piece of philosophical quote, by Confucius. It said “Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life”.
When I read it, it clicked. I realized that I was meant to sell games, and hopefully bring smiles to people’s life by sharing my views on how to enjoy everything while you spend time here on this wonderful and chaotic earth. Through all the trials, and tribulations I have endured, I know deep down that if I had not been working in the store on the day John K. walked in and pitched his idea of a little comic strip called Dork Tower, “though at the time it was not called that when he was working on it”. I would have missed out on a great idea, and being a small inspiration to him, at being Igor.
I guess what I’m trying to say to you all is I will never be able to express how much this has mean to both Dawn and I, but I will never stop trying to be true to the idea of doing something I know I’m good at, and that is GAMES, and being a Dork! I hope to get back to that in some way, either by finding a job, or making it myself by running my own store.
HUZZAH! And Merry Christmas to you all!

Overwhelming gratitude

I just wanted to let you all know, that the donations have been pouring in. Dawn has been overwhelmed by the amount of responses that people have made to help out. I myself have had to wipe my eyes a couple of times, because I did not think I had such a wonderful group of people that felt I gave joy, thru John’s characterization of me as Igor. I know John has said many times that Igor is important, but I only thought it minor when I talked and played role playing games with John that gave him the inspiration to entertain everyone with his stories.  So we’re are getting close to taking care of our bills with all of your help, and once again I & Dawn cannot Thank You all for the support you have given us. Huzzah It Must Be Mine”!
Oh Evil Will Weaton, I challenge you to a ROLE PLAY SESSION, WITH ME AS GAME MASTER! (Insert Evil Laughter - HA, HA, HA, HA!)

The better half of Igor

So I sit here wondering what the year end is going to bring , and I say please don't let Igor fall again .. Yes after he got his snow on the first of Dec no more the a day or two later he tumbles down and as I see this  all I can say ( evil voice ) I glad I didn't cause this . Now for the ones who don't know the story , 2 years ago I (being the loving better half) go all out and rented a suite with indoor water park to boot, For our wedding anniversary So I send him up to the room and no more then 2 minutes later IGOR breaks his toe and all he was doing was checking out the bed ... No I was not nude on the bed nor did I push him .. As Scott and I been going though some difficult times in these past months ,and not knowing what will happen with his leg ,and the up coming test for me (health) .I sit with coffee and I think back over the past few years of how just Scott and I meant and it brings a smile to my face and I think just maybe things will be OK....

Dawn (Igor better half ) And John even says so LOL

Well, its the first of December, and as I look out of my window sipping on a cup of coco. I see the first sign of winter with the flakes of snow on the ground, and all I can think of is how many times my gaming group is going to call and cancel, because it's too cold to drive, "Just Kidding Guys". But all kidding aside I think this is the slowest time for gathering so I can GM a bit of orc slaying, and random PC mayhem for my gaming group. But I'm looking forward to the Holiday, and maybe, just maybe I can get one good game session in with a twist on Santa Claws showing up to greet the unsuspecting group of adventures to share a bit of Holiday cheer, and gore. (Insert maniacal laughter - Ha - Ha - Ha!)

Facing the holidays

Well thanksgiving came and went. I was not sure if gathering with the family clan would be pleasant or one of those moments of wanting to gnaw off your arm just to escape. But after feeding the clients at my job, going to my stepdaughter's for dinner, and then making it over to spend sometime with my family. I'm glad to report that I have both arms, and settled down to a much turkey induced sleep, with visions of flaming sugar plums, in dread of the upcoming season continued event. Happy Late Turkey Day to you all.

Here it goes!

Well, I guess it was a matter of time, but I thought I would try my hand at this blogging thing. My friend John Kovalic is always say I should put my thoughts out there, and see if anyone is listening. I don't know if my words will mean anything to anyone, but who knows? I may have something you are willing to hear. So look out world cause Scott "Igor" Olman is here, and here to STAY!
