I like to think I’m not a geek. I have lots of geek toys and enjoy some geek type shows… but I don’t get the comic book thing, I’m not into sci-fi much or video games and I don’t really know that much about computers. In fact I always find it a little alarming when really computer illiterate friends come to ME for advice and I think " You poor bastards that you’ve got no one more competent than me to call on for help!". :S
So when it comes to things like comic book / sci-fi / trading card games / video gaming / fantasy conferences thingies… well I’d line up for unnecessary root canal work than spend a day doing that Which is okay. Thus far I’ve never been forced to attend one and I don’t think my absence has been keenly missed by those of my acquaintance who do wish to visit these wallet emptying ventures. Mr K and the Small Child went to Supernova today and I don’t think they missed me at all 🙂 I got a few texts though that were kinda weird…
Mr K: There’s some guy here dressed up as Pedobear!
borys: You’re not serious!?!?
borys: Did you get a photof of the Small Child with him on your iPhone?
Mr K: LOL. Ok … I’ll try.
borys: Pay him if you have to! 😉
