Drunkagain

We're very pleased to be launching a new community feature here at GWJ. The Employee Profile will showcase various members of our forums and give everyone an idea of who they're talking to all day when they're supposed to be working. For the first few rounds of questions we'll be doing posters with over 1000 posts and then we'll expand from there. The questions are sent through Private Messages in the forums so keep your eyes peeled! If you do an interview we encourage you to post a link to it in your signature file so new visitors can get a feel for who you people are. Our very first profile is of none other than Drunkagain, the Office Lush.

Read on for the profile and thanks to Drunkagain for being brave enough to send in a picture.

1) Who the devil are you?

An unmotivated 33 year old who likes nothing better than hanging out with his friends playing video games and drinking beer.

2) What are you supposed to be doing during the day when youÂ're reading GWJ?

I work in surgery at our local hospital doing sterile processing. IT's a shlep job, but the pay is decent and the work is easy.

3) When youÂ're not working or gaming, what do you do with your time?

Spend way to much time at GWJ. I've also played guitar for the last 20 years and spend a good amount of time with that lately. Read. I'd rather read a good book than just about anything else. And since I live in the great Pacific Northwest, I spend lot's of time enjoying the outdoors.

4) How about family? Do you have any kids?

Nope.

5) What was your favorite game over the last year or so? Why?

Advance Wars 2. I'm an old school gamer and turn base strategy is my absolute favorite genre. Once I got into it, I just couldn't stop playing.

6) Which game are you looking forward to most?

Doom 3. Call me an id Software fanboy, but I've completely enjoyed every game these guys have ever made. And I love horror. Looks like a winning combination to me.

7) What is your fondest gaming memory?

Spending an entire weekend with my friend playing The Secret of Mana. Even when he had his truck towed we didn't quit playing. My first co-op experience in a game and I've been sold on it ever since.

8: Finally, why do you play games at all? Why havenÂ't you outgrown them?

Jeez, I grew up on video games. I cut my teeth on an Atari 2600, a NES, and a C64. I can't remember a time when I haven't had a gaming system in my home of type or another. I may burn out on gaming from time to time, but it's in my soul, and I always come crawling back.

Thanks for taking the time to answer our hard-hitting questions, any last words?

Thanks to the staff and community at GWJ for the best site around.

What kind of beer is that?

God help us.

(Awesome idea, by the way.)

Better pray to me, not God, if you're coming in for surgery.

Remind me to never need medical attention in Seattle!

Cool article, look forward to more!

He scares me.

Agreed, definitely. This is a great idea, and I hope to see more like it!

Doesn't every good workplace have an Office Lush?

The envy of social drinkers everywhere!

How often are we going to be doing this? And I obviously need to make more posts...

I can spam just like the rest of them, aw hell who am I kidding, I can spam just like a flattend squirell being operated on by drunkagain...god help us....

Only 20 posts?? You poor monkey boy. Bow to the power of my 32 posts (33 now...)!!!

I was thinking of this very idea over the weekend. I figured i had no right to suggest anything. Me thinks that Drunkagain has mind-reading capabilities that he's not telling us about.

Get on your knees Simpilot. Worship me for i have 38 posts. Muwahahaha.

Nice picture - is that your parent's basement?

Cheerz buddy!

Smart Ass.

My lucky Kangol.

I think every gamer has a Lava-lamp...

Cool idea with employee profile...

Yeah good idea, but shouldn't our hosts go first?

I think Sway's should be from his attic.

I think the advantage that I have in not being asked for a profile is that I have nothing of any true value to share with the world. Thats so true, in fact, that I have a t-shirt that says "not of any redeemable value".

Absolutely...with a guest interview from the creature in the box!

Look how clean it is around his desk. Looking at the nest of junk around my desk, just be happy I don't even work close to a hospital. I bet he gets drunk and starts cleaning.

(edit)Except for the cleanliness and me being more southern, we're so similiar it's scary.

Certis, would it be possible to have these profiles nicely stacked on a dedicated shelf? Having links in signatures is good, but it would be really nice to be able to find them all in one spot whenever someone wants.

There will be a lot of these.
