Yesterday I sent my winners Josh (Major Nelson & TriXie’s LA Sweepstakes) and Shawn (Xbox.com Apprentice) an email telling them where they’re staying and when I’ll pick them up at the airport. Josh responded by promising to point and laugh at me and my sign in LAX baggage claim. He also told me he’s bringing his Xbox along.
This morning I got an email from Shawn who informed me that he recently fell off a ladder and broke his jaw! "Bottom line is that I wouldn’t miss this trip for the world – broken jaw be damned! Since my mouth did have to be wired shut (Can you believe that!?) I won’t be able to eat solid foods or recite poetry with any accuracy. Haiku’s might be ok, though."
Luckily for my lackey–he’s a trooper, ain’t he?–most of the nourishment at E3 comes in liquid form.
