The week that was began with me walking into the Kotaku office on my first day, cleanly shaven, smelling delicious, wearing a lovely shirt and a nice suit jacket – shaking hands with everyone, not too firm, but not too limp either.

Then it slowly devolved, with me getting shabbier and shabbier until I simply judo rolled into the office on Friday, wearing my 10 year old Spiderman pajamas, sporting a hobo beard and smelling vaguely like a wet dog.

That was the week that was for me. The week that was for Kotaku? You’ll find that below.

      • What’s more, they’re lazy hobo’s – what, with all the hibernating and such.

        Sounds like me when i first started my current job – always coming in clean shaven and smelling like… something that smells nice.

        These days i just wear bummy clothes from the brands we sell and generally don’t care – what with sitting behind a computer all day and all.

        I need a scene change. Hopefully i’ll get that interview call from JB soon… They need somone in their games section 🙂 Perfect!

          • I have two piercings in my upper left ear, and used to have both nipples and eyebrow but took them out a while ago.

            No tatts though… hmmm maybe i should get one?

            How about a heart with ‘mum’ on it?

    • Man I should have read this post earlier, I love Hobo bear sports. I feel like i missed out on the joke and It is just not the same now.

      Hey, why do you get to edit your stuff ups but we dont have a hope… double standards?? Oh i forgot, dictatorship… ah.

      • Lollercoasters, it is double standards, I think we should all now be gifted free lazy hobo bears, to use as poofies. You know, foot stools, jebus, I don’t know if its polically correct to call foot stools poofies anymore??? I have found memories of my first poofie I have. 🙂
