This stuff is so fun. I love watching the competition and meeting the gamers and sponsors. The people involved in gaming are really so great. E sports is still so young that you don’t have the massive egos that go with giant salaries, groupies, and endorsement deals. People are passionate about games, and 99% of the time are good sports.
Cool peeps I met today:
Conartistic, who is one of my premiere Xbox Ambassadors, came down just to meet me–how cool is that?
MoB GODFATH3R, who is a character, a crackup and my new BFF.
Dudes from Turtle Beach. They make kickass headsets, and I made them my bitches.
Joe from TPN, who makes cool stuff happen and likes my ideas.
Shoutcasters from GGL and esports.com who were good sports about me shoving them a little.
Other people who are very cool and nice but I can’t remember their names or I lost their cards
Highlights of the weekend:
Between rounds of Gears, shopping at A/X, Aveda, and the CNN store (wonder woman tshirt!)
Dinner last night at Morimoto. I ate raw tuna pizza–and liked it!
Vanilla latte from Dean and Deluca kept me from slipping into a coma
Amy Winehouse on the cover of Rolling Stone!
Lowlights of the weekend:
Couldn’t sleep AT ALL last night
Bought a sandwich and forgot about it for about five hours…then ate it anyway
Purchasing expensive Aveda hairproducts because the sign said "Is your hair unruly?"
Freaking Met is closed tomorrow when I have a sliver of free time
So, I’m gonna be up for quite some time tonight putting together the coverage for xbox.com (french fries, mayo and 4 tiny diet cokes are on their way up via room service). Tomorrow in my sliver of freeness should I go to MOMA, or check out the Mythic Creatures exhibit at Museum of Natural History?
