SHAKA, WHEN THE WALLS FELL

When I moved into SJC, I thought to myself, “Wow, I live in a residence for grad students now… I wonder if there will be any people like me… you know… hard-core geeks…”

Well, nine months later, the much anticipated LAN parties and discussions about Kevin Mitnick never materialized. However, on Thursday night, I sat down with some SJC residents for dinner. I’ve sat with these people before, but it was strange, the conversation was totally geeky. We completely geeked out.

Here are just a few snippets from our dinner conversation:

“Shaka, when the walls fell…”

“Do you remember when Optimus Prime gave up the Matrix of Leadership?”

“The Baroness was totally hot!!!”

“Cobra Commander and Starscream are the exact same people”

“Was Chip the son of Spike? Or is it the other way around?”

“Snake Eyes is the coolest…”

“Lady Jaye!!! Rawwwwrrrrrrr!!!”

“I’ve played all the Bard’s Tale games… like last year”

“I had a thief up front to detect traps…”

“I think all this talk is giving me a nosebleed…”

“Whoa, did your glasses just break in half?”

“Did anyone ever notice that when Megatron transformed he turned into a tiny little gun? What’s up with that?”
