      To be clear, I was at your wedding and reception in 2003, so I KNOW you have a sister and her name starts with T. Also, why did you lie about your cancer? You didn't have cancer.

    2. Natali Creator on

      Mary, there were no sisters. Just me. And no shopping spree was had. The tweets and FB for the cafe should be linked to my private blog, I apologize. In October of 2010 I was diagnosed with cancer. I should have posted on here, but life turned into a struggle just to stay alive. The cafe has taken longer as a result of my health, but it is still very much in the process of being opened. I now have a FEIN and am completing the 501(c) 3 paperwork needed to get the rest of the funding for opening doors. I do sincerely apologize that I have not linked things better to keep people more informed. Your support has meant so much for me and I apologize that I have let you down in this area.

      Hmmm, I wonder where my $50 actually went? Was looking forward to visiting UberDork Cafe. Did the sisters go on a shopping spree? If you follow some tweets and FB after that timeframe, things make you go hmmm.

      Natali, we spoke at Gen Con, and I'd like to get you on the Gamer's Haven Podcast and chat a bit about this. Shoot me an e-mail, DM me on twitter, whatever. I got your business card, but no e-mail address, sadly ... ethan at gamershavenpodcast dot com.

      Thanks to the Brew City Gamers for not only pimpin' the site in their podcast, but also for their financial support. Listen to one fo the best gamer-centric podcasts out there.

    21. Natali Creator on

      Thank you all sooooooooooo much!! I just wanna hug ya. You all know me so you know when I say that your support means oooodles to me, I really mean it. I have been kicking around the idea of seeing if any of the news outlets would be interested. One of the stations is following the cafe on twitter and I have a few anchors following my account personally. Guess I'm kinda hoping they see it and say "hey! this would make a great story!" :) If not, maybe I will give them a lil poke. :)

    22. Steven Molen on

      Totally backing this and you have the full support of @ThePowerGeeks.

    23. Glenn Randall Buettner on

      Oh, contacting the news sounds like a good idea. I'm gonna hit all the folks I know and see if we can knock this baby outta the park.

    24. Lesley Karpiuk on

      This is SO exciting, Natali! I believe in you, girl - YOU CAN DO THIS! UDC is going to be rad <3

      And I agree with Xander about trying to contact your local news! Great idea :)

    25. Xander Price-Ferber on

      You've got a great start. Have you contacted your local news? This would be a fun human interest piece, that would give you more local exposure, and possibly gauge the local reaction to the idea.

      You're going to do great things.
