  Zugbegleiterin Becomes Senior Member Tue, 24 May 2005 17:50
Article from Der Spiegel translated in English
from our Rotterdam correspondent Peter de Zeeuw

http://img167.echo.cx/img167/6932/seniorx1ib.gif

Active since December 27th, 2004, Zugbegleiterin showed the world that she wasn't just "another pretty face" in the Ticket To Ride ranks. This remarkable lady proved to be a serious threat amongst the other "zugbegleiters". Showing exceptional insight and outstanding strategical manoeuvres she quickly got herself a top 10 ranking.
But there's more about Zugbegleiterin. She's also an active TTR forum member where she has written many topics and shared her interesting views with her fellow players. And that's exactly why the Days of Wonder staff held a little party for her last weekend in the Debis Tower in Berlin.
Besides an enormous capacity crowd that all gathered in Berlin to cheer for Zugbegleiterin, there were also a lot of famous players present like TheKid, Pilke, Rek{}, The Ideal Son-Outlaw Peter de Zeeuw, Optimus, Léachris, SKMorefield, the winner of the 1st Tournament El Soyokaze, and many more. But the biggest name of the evening was without a doubt Sir Alan R. Moon that especially came over to Germany to congratulate Zugbegleiterin for her efforts and crown her as Senior Member. It was a beautiful ceremony with lots of music, champagne, asparagus dishes, and of course, a shiny, wonderful Zugbegleiterin!

Despite the enormous attendance there were no real problems except for one minor incident. It occurred when German writer Felix R. Durm jumped over a fence and tried to assault Zugbegleiterin. Felix R. Durm has been obsessed with Zugbegleiterin for a while now and even wrote a book about her. Police personnel immediately jumped to the aid of Zugbegleiterin and removed the delirious writer screaming: "Zug, I love you! I love you!"

Congratulations Zugbegleiterin! Thumbs Up

What a weekend! Surgery on Friday and a great party Saturday! I was really glad to attend it, Zug woman, even if it was on crutches. And I really loved those asparagus dishes! Tasted so much better than all that canned stuff I ate until now! Wow.

Thanks, SKMorefield, but all I did was just translate the article, since I have some time now recovering from my injuries. I had nothing to do with the picture though. But it's great to see how rivals can put their differences aside for an occasion like this and are willing to have a group picture taken of them. Actually I tried Rek to look like a bunny, but I guess they photo-shopped that out, hahaha! Grin

Take care all,

D.I.S.

Thank you, Pilke. But Zugbegleiterin and I are not a couple. I just helped her out a little. Of course, there is some undeniable chemistry between us, aw yeah. Wink

But hey, it was great to meet you too! You're so much taller in real life! Razz

Bye,

Owww, Léachris... always assuming there's some great big conspiracy against you. No name mentioned in the article and no place in the 2nd Tournament.

You so adorable!

Come on, give me a hug!

MUSH!

Hihihi!

Wink

forget me , I already forgot you

I'll never understand people who can act this way with someone who tried to be kind, you disgust me !

Léachris,

You are one of my favorites to watch post. Very entertaining. But c'mon, Peter was just engaging in some good natured fun. Think about it...it's Peter for pete's sake (no pun intended...)

Too quick to anger now. Where is the Léachris of old... with the witty repartee and the amusing comments? We miss her!

Forgive Peter, he knows not what he does. Laughing But he eats a good can of peas.

Léachris and Zugbegleiterin Thu, 26 May 2005 14:09
Léaaa, come on... Don't be like this. I'm just having a little fun. I really appreciated it when you tried to cheer me up when I was down yesterday. You were so nice (just like Thaddäus)! And it worked! I felt better. But it wasn't until I beat you that I felt great! So thank you for that.
You were the one that told the others on this forum not to take me so seriously when I first came in with my big mouth. But now you are the one that seemed to lost her sense of humor and sports(wo)manship.
Baby, what can I possibly do to make it up to you?

And about Zugbegleiterin. What Pilke said, about us being a cute couple, made me think...
You see; a guy like me could really use a woman that's sexy, smart, successful and absolutely insane by his side. Zug woman fits this profile. So perhaps it would be a good career move for me to seduce Zugbegleiterin and convince her to team up with me. Of course, that will be easy. I'll just use my natural charm and shake my delicious hairy butt a bit to drive Zug to ecstasy levels she'd never experienced before. And that should do the trick.

Thanks Pilke, for triggering my diabolical brain again! Hihihi... Twisted Evil

D.I.S.

Hi léachris,
you are clearly on the list. Other people deserved it as well, but I had no idea, how to put them in the picture. Or I couldn't find a picture on the internet, that would fit. I want to mention Warner13, Thaddäus, br'er rabbit together with Fond-of-a-short-blonde, plcrams, vinz, rangerer, DasZuggespenst, Oma Kasulzke, frunk, JohnK, Roaring Possum, Zebra, ulrich99, MrBucket, Griselda, Orc&Roll, Jessica B, yaron, onyx puffin, Achim2004, tjandjahall, Caboose, Anu_, toro1, osamu, AlexM, BR 6/8III, Razamanaz, airbus, Kimber, Princess Leaky (or how ever this bitch is called), womble, Bum-Bum, Jacqueline, Schwarzfahrer ~ Geist a.k.a. Unhold or Untot, and many more. Not to forget Yann, Eric, Brice and Claudia. Also there were Felix26 and snyg2 as delegetion of the Ticket Fiends Club, and last not least RRconductor, Binchen and Familienzug as official DQWP representants (Democratic Quitter and Whiner Party). All of you were on the ceremony, but I guess, you were already drunk, when the photograph was taken. And you know, you never can be sure, what these journalists will publish. I'm so glad they removed the bunny ears from rek{}.

As a guest celebrity you, léachris, actually belonged to the list to mention in the article from the beginning. When Peter sent me the text draft, you still were. When I edited the text a little bit, I unintentionally deleted your name. As soon as I saw that, I corrected. Please read again.

You can call it bad temper, but I had very hurting experiences yesterday with several players. Then if there's no smileys, it means they don't have to be

Sorry warner, you can't understand, there is a story behind all this between peter and me.



To all, I just wanted to say : today, I was so upset that I wanted to give up that game, I couldn't understand how people, only because they are hidden behind their screen, can behave so nastily ....

Someone told me once , a long time ago ( I've been here for almost one year ) that online behavior reveals "in real" behavior, that I can't excpect nasty people to be else than nasty players.

But seeing people who were kind, transforming themselves into bastards Confused Sad Mad

But happily ( for me Laughing ) , I thought about all the ones I like here ( the list is very very long ) and that I don't want to lose ( and perhaps some don't want to lose me !Wink )and I decided to stay

A few persons can't hide all the wonderful persons I " met" here

I'll be here for a long time !

And to the ones who are disappointed not to see me leaving, I've got only one thing to say : clear off !
