New Post with 30% Less Drama!

Sorry I went off on that tangent about my sister the uber-flake. This should be about my gig, I know. I’m just hoping that I can figure out what her fascination is with the Metaverse by seeing it first-hand.

But enough about my personal drama... with 30k in student loans and plaque on my wall claiming that I'm a journalist, I guess now’s as good a time as any to put on my professional hat and give you the scoop.

So, the Metaverse awaits reportage by yours truly. I’ve never been one to fall for the hype, so don’t expect to hear many ooohs and ahhhs. In my last post, I was telling you about this company I’m doing the story on: Involvium Energy Ventures. Cue "Also sprach Zarathustra" (that's the "2001" music for you philistines *wink). Actually, most people haven’t heard of them... but just so you know, they're the ones leading the expedition into the uncharted wilds of the Metaverse.

My editor is trying to convince me this will be "interesting". It's undiscovered country folks! Oh right... I almost forgot. Don't fall into the hype. But ok, I admit it. I'm a little intrigued...

...VERY little.

LOL! Yup, it’s my new blogger name. I know it’s cheesy... but hey, if I’'m going to a Brave New World, why keep my old “unbrave” name? This is my first post, so please be gentle. The editor wanted me to start this blog to coincide with a puff-piece I’'m working on about some company exploring the Metaverse. So, here I am.

For those of you keeping score (then again, I just met you!), it’s been 33 days since I last saw my sister, Trish. She was always a self-absorbed little freak. Last time we talked I had to practically blackmail her just to check-in with mom and dad to let them know she was still alive. Now she’s disappeared somewhere in the Metaverse doing who knows what. That'’s why I agreed to take this gig. To be honest, I'’ve been morbidly curious for a while to see the Metaverse -- I’'ve just never had a reason. Now I have one: to find my sister and give her a swift kick in the @#$%!
