A geeky conversation

Upon hearing the news that Peter Facinelli is going to be at Dragon Con this year, I immediately IM'd Mr Hazel. The ensuing conversation turned out to be so funny that I'm reproducing an edited version below.




me: can we go to Dragon Con? the guy who plays Carlisle in Twilight will be there.

him: ...

me: i want to go to Dragon Con!

him: to see some stupid actor for 30 seconds?

me: well, and other things

him: alright

you're going to be bored out of your mind

but if you want to go

me: why would i be bored?

him: what is there that would interest you at all?

it's a room full of geeks

with nerdy things

most of which you have never heard of

you'd be bored in 10 minutes

me: i like comics!

him: I don't think...you have any idea just how little interest you are going to have in the convention once you actually get there. If we go, I'm going to make you stay for 8 hours.

me: i'll stay for 8 hours

him: maybe I'm wrong

but I'm pretty sure

that after about 10 minutes

you are going to realize that you want to leave

me: i like geeks

and sci fi

and fantasy

him: there's a difference

when you are surrounded by Battlestar Galactica and Dungeons and Dragons stuff I don't want you to yell at me :)


I'm not sure you are terribly excited about the new 4th edition of Dungeons and Dragons and the D20 system of combat.

me: ...

him: but maybe you can find something else there

me: Twilight

him: wrong convention

Tell Mr. HD that romance writers go to Dragon Con all the time! My writer friend Marcia Collette went when she had her new release. And I think the Shomi writers go pretty regularly too. Dragon Con has become a huge crossover event.

PS: Happy Birthday to youuuuuu!!!
