Geeks on Craigslist

January 10, 2009 § Leave a comment

So, my wife likes to send me random crap from craigslist.com.  She especially thinks it’s funny to send me stuff with incredibly geeky requests on them.  The thing is that I’m pretty sure she sends them half joking and half mocking but what she doesn’t know is that if I had time I would be replying to these posts to delve even deeper into the realm of geekdom.  I enjoyed the following post particularly because…well because if I wasn’t half broken, I would buy armor and join these fellas

Thor’s Refuge (formerly Shire of Falcon’s Reach) of Amtgard

Meet with Amtgard players in the Sacramento Valley area!

Learn weapon making, fighting with foam, meet a barbarian or two, enjoy the company of others who have similar interests as you! If you found this site you must like the strange and bizzare, so it is a perfect match, we are the strange and bizzare, yet pass as normals when out with the straights/normals/muggles (choose your term).🙂

Looks like fun right?!?  My favorite part is that these geeks are organized!  Check out the website: Thor’s Refuge (formerly Shire of Falcon’s Reach) of Amtgard
