Okay, so for two years (!) Jason has been working toward the pinnacle* of his chosen online game, World War II Online. Now, having been cracked out on WoW, I understand a bit of game obsession. But the past 8 months or so have been really hard. It's been like a part time job for him, and his regular job has him coming home late most nights anyway. He was coming home and going straight into the game just about every night. I couldn't make plans to meet with friends on the weekend (that included him) because he was always having to go to some meeting or another. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to go somewhere or do something and couldn't because he had some damn meeting. It's been the source of much angst and a few fights.
So anyway, he finally became Commander in Chief, and this past Sunday they won the campaign! Which means he can retire and I get my husband back! Woohoo!
So I baked him a cake.
This was my first time working with melting chocolate, and I made a few mistakes. Also, I have no idea how to make red icing. I put almost the whole thing of red food color in there and it was still pink.
There are only 4 stars because the game gliched and never gave him the 5th. His in game name is Alphie and it was the 53rd campaign. Oh, and he plays Axis, so it's German Chocolate. ;)
The funniest thing was that when he saw it, he said that I must be *really* happy he was done. Well, yeah, but I also thought his accomplishment warranted a cake.
*the game is structured like regular military, with a command structure. He worked his way up through the ranks from regular player into the officer corps and finally to Commander in Chief. You can't go any higher unless you're a developer.
