Texts From Rezzed: Friday | Rock Paper Shotgun
What are the gang up to today?
Everyone’s away this morning, all off larking about at EGX Rezzed, basically just playing games and chatting as if any of that is work. I’m at home/work in Scotland so the least they can do is tell me about their holiday. Which is why I’ve forced that mob to text me updates from their day: what they’ve played; what they’ve seen; what they’ve done; and, most importantly, what they’ve eaten. Yesterday was all about pizza, so let’s see what’s going down (or coming up? given that last night was the big pub drink-o-chat) on day 2 of the London games show organised by our corporate siblings and ourselves.
BrendanI’m very tired. Last night at our aftershow Mixer, former RPS man and noted Crusader Kings liker Adam Smith invited everyone back to his hotel bar. I refused. And yet somehow I think my soul departed my body and went with him. Does anyone have a spare soul?
AlecI ate a very nice apple on the train
Alice LOf course I get sucked into donating to Battersea cats and dogs home
Alice OCan I donate money specifically to that dog? It deserves it. How do I leave everything to that specific dog in my will.
Alice LI’ll go back and ask the nice vegan man.Why am I like this. Why is this so on brand. Who organised them to be here. Was this a trick.
Alice OSome YouTube prankster will jump out shouting “OHHHHHH! YOU JUST DONATED TO A CHARITY! PSYYYKKE”
Alice LONLY LOSERS DONATE TO CHARITIES
AlecI walked across Tower Bridge instead of taking the tube, and seeing all these people taking the exact same selfie made me realise that we are all just pre-programmed meat living an illusion of purposeAlso I am very close to the venue and suddenly there are so many men in black hoodies
Alice OWhat colour is your hoodie?
