So the world tour for TCTGTM continues, and I sit in Leamington, not touring the world at all. Her latest stop (first) is currently Paris, where she resides, rather fetchingly, on a custom easel in a fancy gallery, courtesy of our equally globetrotting acquaintances, Babycastles. They are probably having a great time, making cat towns full of cat games. It’s raining in Leamington.
I’ve never been to Paris, I’ve heard it’s nice. Full of attractive French people and art galleries and people having fun. Luckily TCTGTM is an internet cat and has more lives than one – I can clone her and make her endure the rain with me in Leamington. It makes me feel better.
I suppose I shouldn’t be too miserable – I’m allowed to accompany her for one sojourn (that’s a French word) to the English Riviera. Not quite as glamorous as the continent, but I’m happy. The name of the get-together is Rezzed, a very fancy do on the seaside, so I might look wistfully to the sea and pretend it’s not just a channel, imagine it to be the Caribbean or somewhere glamorous like Brazil.
Which incidentally is the next pitstop for TCTGTM and the latest I’ll not attend. Such a fortunate cat… I wonder if Brazil is more glamorous than France? It must be.
But I digress – back to England: Rezzed is a glorious thing, full of gaming wonders. To illustrate: a show that simultaneously exhibits both Aliens: Colonial Marines and Antichamber is a wondrous show indeed. I feel as if I should attend in formal wear, and dance elegantly in a ballroom. Regardless, TCTGTM will wow and infuriate the attendees in equal measure.
Mr. David Hayward of European Gamer fame is responsible for this leg of the tour, and TCTGTM and I have not made his acquaintance. I hear he is a fine, upstanding fellow. I shall shake his hand vigorously at the earliest possible opportunity, and write Pt.2 of the Rezzed blog after the show to describe his quizzical look upon attempting to vigorously shake his hand.
Until then, adieu.
