“Are you carrying any alcohol, tobacco, or mana potions?”

February 3rd, 2009

Las Vegas was great.  I’ll post pictures and more details later, when I’m not at work.

But for now, a little story.  On my way back from Las Vegas, I had to pass through Canada Customs and have one of those little talks with a customs officer, to see if I have to claim anything.  The conversation went as follows.  I kid you not.

“What was the purpose of your trip?”

“Personal, just a little weekend vacation.”

“Where are you coming in from?”

“Las Vegas.”

“Were you traveling with anyone?”


“… You went to Las Vegas by yourself?”

“Well, uhh… no.  I met up with some friends there.”

“How do you know these friends?”

“We… play an online video game together.”

“Which game?”

*rapidly turning red* “World of Warcraft.”

“What do you play?”

“Um, I’m sorry… what?”

“What kind of character do you play in World of Warcraft?”

“A Troll Hunter.”

“Nice.  Alright, you can go through.”
