Welcome to GDS. It is great you took the plunge to say hello.
I am a gamer mom too in a way - my son makes them lol. I can't say I am great at playing any except Burnout and Need for Speed. We are eagerly awaiting Farcry 3 which comes out a the end of the month as it is my son's first huge game. Not my type of game but I have to add it to the collection with his name in the cover lol.
I like horror movies too.
Enjoy our wandering around the site and good luck in the job hunting.
