Proof of my incipient geekdom

Geekman: "Sometimes you say things that make me realise there's a deeply avaricious side to your personality." [Pause] "But don't get me wrong, I think it's a good thing."

Me: "Because it means I might end up making you lots of money?"

G: "I was trying to think of a slightly less crass way to put that, but yeah."

Me: "I don't want money so that I can buy lots of stuff, though. I just want to *have* it."

G: "I think that probably means you play too many RPG games. And now you see the world as endless occasions for gathering gold and loot."
