So I got my Serenity statue today and it is effing sweet. I really need to find some local fan-friends so they can come admire it. The next best thing is of course to squee about it on LJ. Aren't you jealous? ;)


Speaking of rubbing cool things in people's faces this reminds me of one of the many 'Tales of Atlantis Games & Comics' (which I own in case you missed it).

So 'T' is a 15 year old guy who is one of my customers. Nice kid but has a problem of just saying things without really thinking them through. 'H' is a 16 year old girl that works for me. So 'T' comes by and is bragging about getting a Nintendo Wii for Christmas. 'H' is a bit jealous because she wanted a Wii too. She claims that 'T' is just bragging to make her feel bad. So without missing a beat 'T' says: "Hey...if you want I can come back later and rub my Wii in your face."

Of course the lot of pervs we are, we burst into laughter at that. Of course 'H' and 'T' seemed completely clueless. When we explained it to 'H' she turned bright red and after seeing 'T's expression I can now say I've seen somebody splutter.
So I was explaining this whole thing in IM to [livejournal.com profile] spnaimee and she suggested I share. So gather round kiddies for one of the legendary tales of Atlantis Games & Comics.

The names have been changed to protect the ridiculed innocent.

The cast of players:
Akasha -16 year old mildly retarded girl with a speech impediment and an obsession with vampires. Akasha is what she actually told people to call her...you know because of the Anne Rice character?
Sugar Water -25+ year old guy who met Akasha somehow online perhaps. Named that because he looked a lot the guy made of bugs from Men In Black.

One of my employees just let me know about a new game store that is opening about a mile down the road from one of my stores.

Don't people get it? The gaming market is in a slump right now...why open a store. And why open one within 3 miles of 2 other stores. Don't people do any kind of research? And to add insult to injury they are almost completely copying us in game lines carried and incentive programs.

It seems you can't throw a stick anymore without somebody deciding to open a game store. I have a former customer that opened up in the same city who doesn't seem to understand why I won't help him. Now I've got this guy opening up a mile away. I have enough to worry about without the possibility of losing a customer or two. *sighs*

I shouldn't worry. I've been around for almost 12 years now. The Va Beach store has been open for almost 3 years and both are doing good. But I can't help worrying. This is my livelihood. The only skills I have are in retail...well that and stripping! (OK...I can't be that upset if I can make a stripping joke) Alright vent over. I feel better now. :)

Here's hoping the go out of business quick.

This is a bit of hyprocrisy since I am a gamer too but I don't care. There's gamer and there's !gamer!

I have a group of !gamers! sitting in my store right now. 4 of the 6 are dressed in black or...black. They are playing D&D which I like but their style of D&D is like a cult. Cult D&D seems to be all about having an excuse to talk about the most disturbing & offensive subjects. We allow open gaming in our store but is it really necessary to engage in discussions about pentacles, demons etc with the random donut sales guy who is raising money for his church.

And it went a little something like this )
