If you don't live in the midwest, be thankful. It's been a bit chilly here to say the least. Syrana's office was closed due to the cold and I worked from home. Schools and businesses all over the state are closed today and even tomorrow. To tell you the truth, I probably wouldn't be that shocked if I saw Arthas, the Lich King himself, knock on my door and ask for some Hot Apple Cider. I think Syrana and I are going to put on our Frost Resistance gear and go LARP in the -40 degree wind chill.

Syrana, you with me? For the Forsaken! Syrana? Hello? Why am I alone out here?

  • I live in Indianapolis, IN and it was -12 here today. I vouched to blow a sick day and stay inside. I didn’t even leave to get food, I ordered Donato’s Pizza lol. I hate the cold. EFF JOO COLDZ!

  • I live in Australia, we use celcius and its in the 30’s here. Quite hot, I’m not a fan of the cold, lived in England for a while, I’m really not a fan of cold weather, would much rather to be hot and anyone that would rather be cold over being hot is weird…

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
