The Day I Nearly Played Worms with a Famous Person

Note the word “nearly”.

Got a random DM on Twitter last night from a colleague in PR, asking if I was free for a Top Secret Project™ this morning. I was, so he promptly sent over a code for an XBLA game, instructions to be online for about 8.45am and then casually dropped into conversation a Very Famous Name1.

Cue: excitement.

I have an odd relationship with celebrity. I don’t care much for it – or them – but this was a name you’d instantly recognise, and one you probably admire. So I said yes and allowed myself to get a bit excited about it all.

‘Course, it all fell apart. These things almost almost do. His People were faffing about with Other People, the selected game changed, then the time, and then the whole thing was eventually scrapped. It’s okay, though. It reminded me of how great things are now, what incredible opportunities often come my way, and how awesome – and weird – my life can be!

1 I’d say who it is, but as I’m not entirely sure if it’s going to be rescheduled, maybe it’s best that I don’t?! Sorry!
