The weekend, part one

Friday night began with Paul and me catching up with Cory (on vacation back in his home town of Accordion City) at Tequila Bookworm, the Queen Street cafe/magazine store/reading room where many good stories begin.

As he recently announced in BoingBoing, Cory Doctorow has been taking a little breather away from San Francisco and has returned to his home town of Accordion City. I got a phone call from him early Friday evening, asking Paul and me to join him at Tequila Bookworm. Like me, he’s fond of the place as it serves great coffee, is a book-and-magazine lover’s paradise, has a certain bohemian comfiness to it and there’s also the matter of very cute staff.

The original happiest geek on earth. Cory chills at Tequila Bookworm.

We three geeks from OpenCola are… Tequila Bookworm has seen this much nerdpower on one couch since…ever!

As you may have also read in BoingBoing (and in the lively discussion that ensued), a man-mountain of a drug dealer who plies his trade half a block away from his apartment stole his beloved MiG fighter goggles (one can only imagine what he looks like when he’s wearing the goggles). He’s since replaced them with a new pair he acquired online and proudly showed them off to us. He told us to try them on, and here are the results:

I think a fly got into the teleport chamber with me! Paul tries on Cory’s MiG fighter pilot goggle sunglasses.

Do they go with the shirt? My turn trying on Cory’s goggles.
