I was made aware of this via Twitter and am spreading the word.
An anonymous survey to determine the perception and experiences of women that game. The results of this survey will aid in the creation of an article that will be used to attempt entry into a PhD program. Nothing in this survey is personally identifiable, except for an option to include your email address. The email address, should you include it, will never be made publicly available and will not appear in the final written article.
This is an introductory survey. There can and will be follow up surveys around potential “fixes” for the current perception of women who game.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. Your help is of enormous benefit.
(For anyone interested in the subject of women gamers, you might also want to look at my RPG.net poll on the percentage of women gamers; it’s old but still (IMHO) interesting and the discussion is msotly very civil.)
So SBC took her very first (and second) flight on this trip.
When the plane took off on the way there, you should have seen how big her eyes got! I wish I would have sneaked a photo of it. She did whine for all of about 2 seconds (probably because of her ears) but as soon as we gave her a pacifier, she was all smiles again. And was playful the rest of the ride, without even taking a nap! Pretty damn good for her first flight ever.
She also learned how to use a straw (instead of just biting it) in order to steal some of Mommy’s strawberry banana smoothie ^.^
We went to the Valley of Fire and her only interest was playing in the sand whenever we tried to walk any of the trails. Needless to say, we didn’t get very far on any of the trails.
We also visited the Wax Museum at the Venetian (which I don’t really recommend, but more on that later) and SBC was pretty freaked out by all the figures, but we did get a couple of good photos.
After Daddy had been working long hours the past several weeks, SBC finally had him at her beck and call and she abused it every chance she got XD
She also got us ‘yelled’ at by hotel security at 3 different hotels… Apparently, when you have a minor you can’t stop moving in the casino; not even on the designated walking areas.
On the flight back it was all old news apparently because she slept through almost the entire thing (including take-off).
That’s all I can remember at the moment, but I’ll probably have more when I find the cable and start posting pictures. So… More to come!
