The Backstory:


Short Version of my woes:

Recently we had a baby and we decided to move back to the bay area to be near my wife's family. I have had a difficult time finding employment and haven't really been able to find the time or the opportunity to join one of the gaming groups here in town since arriving, and we just found out we are going to have baby #2. 

Oops. Damn me and my viking warrior sperm.

Meanwhile, we have been staying with my In-Laws with the bonus satanic soul destroying grandmother, who all generally spend their time telling me what a terrible parent I am, how stupid board games are, and generally making my wife cry. 

I need out. I give up. This auction is my total shelf clearing auction to make way for baby #2 and to fund my escape from hell. Let's face it: I won't have time to play games for a few years anyways. 

It's either this or a multi-state killing spree. You don't want me to go on a killing spree do you? Think about the children.

You should have an option for "killing spree" in the auction. I'll open the bidding for that at $5.

LOL not sure if BGG would frown on that or not.

Edit: Would BGG still want a 3% cut of my killing spree?

Yes. Three percent of the dead bodies must be mailed to BGG Headquarters (deep under ground!). And if that doesn't come out to whole bodies, they want the section with the brains! zombie

For the last 10 years or so I have been working as a data analyst for sales operations groups. Mostly Business Objects, Cognos, Access, hardcore excel for the executives. That sort of thing.

Before that I worked in video game marketing and trade show marketing.

Kixeye.com is looking hard for people.
http://www.kixeye.com/jobs/?ID=bv48121210

I've also heard that SalesForce is looking to grow substantially.

I'll ask around and see if anyone at Wells is looking for a quant guy.

edit: also Splunk.com just went public. If you want to really piss of your MIL look into kink.com- I think they do a lot of quant work on their customer base. also, they work in a giant armory building.

Wow, thank you, Kixeye looks like it has a couple spots open I would be qualified for. I'll look into the other ones too.

So nice to hear actual quantifiable help, as opposed to the ever repeated "You should look at Google, they are hiring." Ugh.
