when i was talking about video games
in my last post i mentioned that the fifth iteration of grand theft auto was released early that morning. what i didn't say was that i was among the first to hold it in my hands as i waited in line at my local supermarket for the midnight release. i passed the time by messaging my friend and these are a selection of my texts:

i just got to asda and got a raffle ticket which is supposed to guarantee me a copy. i'm not counting my chickens until its in hand though...

we've now been moved outside, i'm quite near the front though. this is like queuing up for an iphone, only with a less hipster and more urban demographic

an employee just came out and said "when you get your game hold onto it, people might try and nick it off you!"

i'm a bit concerned this might turn into that scene from requiem for a dream where people rush the guy selling the drugs and they start shooting the place up!

i've revised my definition of success to successfully making it home with the game in one piece...

i was reading a book to pass the time but i've put it away now - think it might make me more of a target...
16 Sep 2013 23:44
now i'm just standing and trying (unsuccessfully) to look hard!

regretting having a beer earlier... trying not to think about how much i need to pee... 5 mins to go...

posh man just asked why there was a queue - ridiculed by all - 2 mins to go...

saw a man walk in, buy a muffin and walk out - what a loser!
17 Sep 2013 00:08
just saw posh boy walk out with a bottle of sparkling water - these people make me sick!

close to the entrance - i'm thinking i should have bought a load of groceries as a decoy for when i walk out
17 Sep 2013 00:13
i'm in the store... i can see them... i can smell them...
