geekdom

I bought a new sword yesterday. A chinese straight sword - very beautifully crafted. Very well-balanced. I bought it from a sword shop on Cambie. This store carried all kinds of swords, from samurai swords to medieval ones. The store was filled with geeks. A guy who took five minutes to bend over and five minutes to stand up again walked out with a tomahawk. A really chunky guy who did not look like he did any exercise at all bought a very expensive samurai sword. As I walked out with my purchase, the 8th in my collection?, quite turned on actually, I had to admit that I too was a sword-fetish geek.
