Michael "Mitch" Mitchell

Michael "Mitch" Mitchell @MitchFizzl — Mitch spent his childhood in a dark cave being raised by feral penguins. While they were actually quite hospitable, Mitch always knew he was destined for something greater — the world of freelance video-game writing! And so he left his penguin herd at the age of 12 to fulfill his destiny. It took a while to make things happen, but eventually he reached the heights he knew he was always supposed to. He hasn't forgotten his humble beginnings, however. To honor the Arctic creatures who raised him and the cave in which said raising was done, he now writes about all things Blizzard while also spreading the good word of Shadow. One day, he will be the best Heroes of the Storm player in the world. He can usually be reached on Twitter (@MitchFizzl).

The Queue: A long way to go

How’s everyone hanging in there? Hopefully okay. Me? Quarantine life is starting to get to me. It’s not the day-to-day so much (since mine has hardly changed) but more so the other, incidental things that are creeping up on me. Not visiting family for a weekend, not working from a coffee shop for even a few hours, and especially not knowing when any of that’s going to change. It’s exhausting.

Anyhow, in case quarantine life is getting to anyone, I want y’all to say something nice about another Queueman today. Go out of your way to make everyone here feel welcome and appreciated. Even that one guy. You know who I mean.

Now, let’s Queue.

The Queue: IT’S BEEN!… one week since I Queued at you

You may recall me being pretty excited about Animal Crossing: New Horizons last week. That hasn’t changed. I love the game. I want to spend every second playing it. I can’t believe I’m even here writing this right now when I could be in my town, saying hi to Isabelle or organizing my fruit orchard.

But instead of Queue and A(nimal Crossing), let’s have some Q&A, shall we?

The Queue: This is Animal Crossing Watch now

If I haven’t made it clear over the last forever, I’m excited that Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally here. Or, it will be tonight. Same thing. We’re in the final few hours and my excitement could probably power an entire continent. If you don’t hear from me for a while, it has nothing to do with *general hand gestures at world* and entirely everything to do with Animal Crossing. I AM SO EXCITED, YOU GUYS!

Anyhow. Let’s Queue.

The Queue: Birthday week

Today is my (step) dad’s birthday, and next Tuesday is my youngest brother’s birthday. In between those, we’ll be be having a family get-together to celebrate. I won’t lie, I’m looking forward to it. I have nice gifts for both of them, and I’m especially excited to see my brother’s reaction to his. I realize they’re not technically in the same calendar week, but they’re within seven days of each other, so I’m counting it as a birthday week.

But enough about that. It’s Queue time.
