It's nice to be queen

SOOO ... today I took a break from writing reports and test cases and took my team to ... (drum roll please) ... a casino expo. It does sound all rather stunningly dull, and was except for the booth babes (the ones dressed like cops were the best) and the piles of booths from our competitors (always good to know where the jobs are) ...

until we found the upstairs where all of the coin operated arcade games were. We played air "football," punched bags, did squirt gun shooting, rode around in electronic cars, and shot baskets. I played some video game called "Dress Up And Dance" which is a mix between Magic, DDR, and American Girls: collect cards to dress yourself, go to a ball or to a "rap party," then hit the tambourine in time with what the screen was showing, then make your folks buy you the copyrighted outfits after you leave. The machines spit out one card every time you played - I got to keep mine, "Lovely Strawberry," a dress suitable for wearing to a ball (but not complete without hair and shoes), with a read and white checked top and a red and white striped skirt. I can see how this would be the video game that would penetrate the 5-12 girl market.

Anyway, that was the best part of my day, and now I'm back to the tedium of writing reports and staffing overly early starting projects. I'll be meeting J at the Barbican for a photo exhibit tonight, which should be fun. I'm going to lend him my badge so he can go tomorrow and play video games for a while. I was so sad that I couldn't have a go playing House of the Dead IV ...
