One of the local geek stores, The Space-Crime Continuum in Northampton, is closing up shop. The owner, Chris Aylott, is going to be a Managing Editor for Steve Jackson Games. Good luck to him!
Discussion of this prompted the following conversation:
(09:32:28) Beebomancer: People have told me — seriously — that I should own a comic/game store. I never know what to say. It’s like telling me I should try out for the olympic ice dancing team
(09:32:42) scaredofscissors: hey, you’d be good at that.
(09:32:47) scaredofscissors: the ice dancing, anyway.
(09:32:49) Beebomancer: hahaha
(09:33:06) scaredofscissors: you and Becky could buy the store.
(09:33:11) Beebomancer: uh-huh
(09:34:05) Beebomancer: two months later, Becky surveys the empty, cobweb-strewn store. “Okay, that’s it. I’m taking your ‘No Freaks’ sign out of the window.” Me: “But but…FREAKS!”
(09:34:31) scaredofscissors: yeah, that’s like cutting out 85% of NoHo’s population.
(09:34:43) Beebomancer: and 98% of the game-playing population
(09:35:23) Beebomancer: plus I’m generous with the word. “Do you have any books where cats solve murder mysteries?” “READ THE SIGN, LADY.”
