shout out to redmenace for this:

"Right, so there are a colony of nerdy D&D-playing medeivalists who gather in Mount Royal Park every Sunday to run around screaming and slapping each with swords made of duct-taped iron bars and shields made out of the lids of recycling bins. Shit, there are even dudes with nerf arrows, flails, battle axes and big fuckin' hammers. One guy had on an entire suit of chain mail armor.

Anyway, a cabal of local hipsters decided that this Sunday was going to be different. This Sunday, the hipsters were going to dress up like zombies and come marching out of the woods to engage the nerds in glorious battle. "

OMG I HAVE DREMS LEIK THAT!


In all seriousness, I wasn't aware that hipsters often made it their priority to simultaneously try to be geekier than geeks and more annoying than high school jocks... and then eat at McDonalds when it was all over.

I went to trivia nite at Norms (that place we went) and there was a team called Decepticons. I thought you should know.

"God bless those Pagan Heathens"

I was working late on skoolwerke one Saturday night -- because I'm a pathetic geek -- and, so, I get back to my car at, like, 10PM. This is down in the UW's s3kr1t underground parking garage. There were a bunch of "melodramatic goth types" (not that I stereotype or anything)hanging out down there. In a conversation with my Punk Ass Neighbor a few weeks later, he tells me that that's were LARPers get together on weekends in order to LARP (if I may use that term as a verb).

Anyway, as I'm nearing my car, I notice that a few of the people give me approving looks as soon as they realize which car is mine. Furthermore, somebody has left me a sweet little note. It says that my car is the "sauciest car" s/he has ever seen and that I should keep up the good work. I can only imagine that if they had seen your fine vehicle -- and knew that it was piloted by a Hot Chick -- you would be getting phone numbers and possibly marriage proposals left on your windshield.

okay, who is this?

Your identity is a mystery to me. I was 98% sure you were Mr. Zimne Piwo until I see the part in your LJ about skirts (could be a guy) and cute T-strap shoes (not generally likely a guy, unless he cross dresses, which is okay by me, but not something I suspected about who I thought this was.) Clear up my confusion, or I'll have to reference interview you into a stupor.
