Verminius Rex: "People say that diamonds are forever. But a Mac upgrade is now."
Geekmom's t-shirt: picture of a hammer captioned "This is not the hammer."*
On acquaintances in fandom:
"I probably know more of you than I realize. It's just that I've never seen you out of costume before."
"Let me get my Darth Vader helmet. There, do you recognize me now?"
"Close! I'm a Mandalorian Warrior."
While saying goodbye, Verminius and one of his friends were talking about the I'm-Not-Gay Hug, which they kindly demonstrated upon request: they clasped right hands in a handshake, leaned together placing left arms around each other's back, and chanted in unison: "I'm" (back pat with left hand) "Not" (pat) "Gay" (pat). Then broke apart. Truly, a thing of beauty.
Overall, I had much fun. Thanks for the invite, verminiusrex!
