The adventures of an Xbox Ambassador – part one
Ok… you all know I’m an Xbox Ambassador which is obviously already a dream come true for N3S, N1S and Chopper who all enjoy gaming sessions. I know there are rumours that gaming might be bad for children but experience has led me to vehemently disagree. N3S is much more settled and sociable when he’s had gaming time after school. The last time I blogged about this, Fairy Hedgehog pointed me in the direction of this article. It’s well worth a read.
Anyway, as you read this post Chez Aspie is on the way to LA baby! Xbox have offered us (and four other families – NotSuperMum , Carol Garrinton , the Funky Professor and a family who will be blogging about it all once we’re back), an all expense paid trip to LA to be present at a very special event. The launch of Project Natal. Oh yes!
No, we can’t quite believe it either.
Things like this don’t happen Chez Aspie. Well at least not until now. I may have to restrain myself from repetitively thanking every Xbox linked person we meet in LA. (I know it would be socially inappropriate but the urge will still be there). I’ve already kissed Kerry, the wonderful rep from Digital Outlook who was kind enough to introduce Chez Aspie to Xbox in the first place. In fact I even told her I loved her….but I can blame that on the wine I was drinking at the time.
However, Shutters on the Beach, the place that Xbox has booked for us to stay in will more than make up for any long haul flight trauma. Well for N3S and I anyway; it may take Chopper a bit longer to recover as he’ll be on extra on edge trying to keep N3S and I calm and able to cope with the trip.
