don't you feel it?
this post will automatically up my dork factor by 983245 points. see, i'm a comic book collector, which ups my dork points on a weekly basis. but if there is any comfort in that, it's the fact that i don't play role playing games, like dungeons & dragons. and i certainly don't collect the cards. THESE acne machines get together in PUBLIC to play these games. and they buy cards and...throw them at each other, or something.
now, what i'm about to tell you, i only know because i just had to look it up, and that's this: there is a role playing game called Munchkin. now, i know nothing about how or why 39-year-old single guys and 14-year-old math club treasurers like this stuff, but it's huge. d&d. pokemon. MUNCHKIN. magic the gathering. nerds from far and wide pretend like they are 'pongo the dragonator' and get together with their friends and pretend to pretend to play. and so on and so forth.
but this Munchkin: i was in borders tonight looking for some dominoes and up on the wall i saw this.
OH YEAH! IT'S A ROLE PLAYING GAME! with my LAST NAME in the subtitle!! my life is over! they are gonna think i'm their hero or something!! i'm gonna have 15-year-old dragonslayers coming to my door!! and didja see?!? the GIANT. MUTANT. GERBIL. and just so you know exactly how UNcool this is, this will explain it.
kristen handed me my ass tonight in Yahoo! Go Fish. it was humbling and NOT what i needed after a pissy night. props to you.
