The Dragoon Goblins Of Love: Finding An Alternate Victory In Dating And Gaming

The Dragoon Goblins Of Love: Finding An Alternate Victory In Dating And Gaming

I am going to win.

This is a big deal. I never win. When we sat down today at this picnic table beside the Atlanta Food Truck Park, I steeled myself to lose. With a pulled-pork sandwich, a side order of macaroni & cheese, and a can of Coke in front of me, I didn’t really need to win. My triumph today was to come in form of sunshine and good company.

The Love Song of J. Jonah Jameson

The Love Song of J. Jonah Jameson

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.

That’s from a poem. It’s called “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” by T.S. Eliot. A very smart man told me once that poetry was a fail-safe way to get a woman to fall in love with me. Now, granted, he did go crazy and try to take down the city with a set of mechanical octopus arms, but I do think he was on to something with this. I wish this were just a love letter. But I have a lot I want to tell you, and I’m afraid some of it may be hard to hear.
