is it the right time for the game we play? in all kinds of weather, if not now, not ever, this is the right time for a holiday
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:

16 Sep 2013 22:53 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...

16 Sep 2013 23:34 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

16 Sep 2013 23:38 an employee just came out and said "when you get your game hold onto it, people might try and nick it off you!"

16 Sep 2013 23:40 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!

16 Sep 2013 23:41 i've revised my definition of success to successfully making it home with the game in one piece...

16 Sep 2013 23:43 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!

16 Sep 2013 23:55 regretting having a beer earlier... trying not to think about how much i need to pee... 5 mins to go...

16 Sep 2013 23:58 posh man just asked why there was a queue - ridiculed by all - 2 mins to go...

17 Sep 2013 00:05 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!

17 Sep 2013 00:11 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...

17 Sep 2013 00:20 [shitty photo attached] not my best ever photo - but i'm proud of it - the walk of danger begins!

17 Sep 2013 00:40 [better photo attached] mission complete! hope you enjoyed the live-messaging service. join us again in 5 years time!
