Okay, I’m exaggerating slightly, but in my head it’s a lovely, golden trophy. With gilded bits, and encrusted rubies. And a blank plate at the bottom with just my name on it, because I’m the first — and last — to wield such a virtual machination.
Yesterday I was linked to by WoWInsider — the ‘definitive’ World of Warcraft news source. It’s basically a huge collection of journalists that write about every aspect of WoW. One of them, Jennie Lees, wrote a lovely little article about gamer psychology, and linked to my own articles on the topic. She went a lot deeper than I, looking at the Myers-Briggs scale, and even Helen Fisher’s work on brain chemistry.
Anyway, it means that, today at least, I can enjoy a brief moment of Internet celebrity. I recorded an audio blog to commemorate this moment, which hopefully isn’t the high point of my career — but who knows!
Tomorrow, however, life will no doubt slip back into normality. I’ll have to wash my body myself and make my own meals. I should enjoy this moment while I can!
