Normally here, I would link to all my recent posts about people with swords, but I'm just too lazy so if you want to see them for context, just search for sword and I'm sure you can find them. Anyway, I'm really starting to think I'm the only person in the world who doesn't have a sword, or at least know where I might get one if the need arose.
First, my stepson comes home last night and tells us about a local restuarant that was robbed earlier that day. The reason he brought it up was that the perpetrator was apparently his girlfriend's brother in law, who had just gotten out of jail and was apparently in a big hurry to get back. But what I found interesting was that the weapon he used in this robbery was a samurai sword. What the fuck? Are guns too hard to come by these days? Oh, and he got away with $32, so that was clearly worth it.
Then, at work this morning, I overhear part of a conversation that some coworkers are having about some online role playing game they used to play, and I guess they had some kind of related parties and one coworker would show up to the parties dressed in character, including armor, and of course...a sword.
Where the fuck do all these swords come from? I seriously wouldn't even know where to go to get one if I really wanted one. Would I need to see a blacksmith? I don't know. It's all very disturbing.
Oh, and Blogger sucks. The last few months, it almost made me forget how much, but the last couple of days have brought it all back.
