Nice. Do you score the same in the comic shop?
To be fair, I actually didn't notice the discount until I got home and looked at the receipt.
I don't patronize the comic shops here often enough to score a discount, but I did get them from shops in LA and San Diego. I think, though, that was more through sheer volume of Marco's and my combined consumption rather than me having boobies. :-P
Hmph. My comic shop is entirely too much of a straight boy for me to work him. I have to make do with the rest of my neighborhood for the cute-boy discount, here in the gay mecca of Washington. (Though, Danaid, I don't get drinbk bought for me so much as I did in Dempsie's.)
Well, should you have difficulty finding anything, I have access to an /amazing/ house o' geek. Well, that and Danaid would have an excuse to drop in goodies for a care package. She'd love that.
Hrm. "drinbk" may equal "drinks." I haven't decided.
"Westsiiiide"...respect sister! ;)
Why thank you, my highly esteemed Caucasian brother.
hahahahaha...yeah cheers mate, btw still waiting for that coffee :P
I never got any discount in a hardware store because I was female and smiled. That's so unfair!
damn...did you do the discount dance?
Yeah... The judge had me pay for the destruction in the store :-/
lol...have a good weekend you!
Oh, it's difficult being a pretty boygoth, isn't it. I staple my hand to my forehead in sympathy.
A goth? Where? *looks around*
That's right. Silly me. This is LJ, there are no goths here.
Then why is your hand stapled to your forehead?
I had to look him up, but dude. Totally. It's all his fault.
Actually, no. As in the original Los Angeles Angels
, a minor league team. Blue Marlin likes to do reprints of the logos of defunct teams.
Interesting bit of LA history. I'm so unhip; it took me 10 minutes to figure out why the kids were yelling "westsiiide," but now that image is very funny.

Fo shizzle my wha.
Certainly, my African-American brother.
I wish I got a discount at the hardware store. Perhaps I should try out this smiling thing at a mainly female visited store...like a yarn shop.
That was an odd thing about europe. I was kinda taken back the first time I saw London teenagers getting all ghetto. At first I was disappointed since I have little respect for the celebration of thug life. Yet as I spoke with them, they just didn't know any better and were truly gleaning it for effect. That's when it became funny to hear them throw out "yo's"...
Heh. It really was quite unfair. But I bet you could get away with it at a fabric store.
It's kidn of difficult to take them seriously, isn't it. I mean, in theory, a pack of ravening teenagers is a pack of ravening teenagers. But when I come out of my front door, find a group of loud, hoodie-wearing, posturing London teenagers, say, "Excuse me, please," and have them all move aside murmuring, "Sorry, miss," I have trouble believing they're quite so dangerous as the ones in, say, Los Angeles. Where they'd probably all be packing.
I told you I would always be here even if you didn't hear me in your space, so here I am in your space, but it no longer matters, I suppose.
I will miss you, my girl, my woman.
Haha, I had a similar experience last weekend. I was wearing my Boston Red Sox hat and feeling conspicuously American when a gold-chain-wearing "innit, bruv!" teenager approached me saying, "Hey, isn't you, like, hate the New York Yankees?" When I replied that, yes, we were rival teams, he smiled at me and said, "Yeah... wicked."
I had to excuse myself before I peed laughing.
