Holy Shit

Looks very much like Mrs Zero & I are opening a shop tomorrow. I can't help thinking that somehow I should have seen this coming and in some way prepared for it.

a local shop?

Dominic Zero said...

Local in the sense that it's in a location.

Does it sell any games about pirates?

Holy fuck - I haven't spoken to you for a few weeks and you've gone and done it! Bloody hell - that seemed to happen quickly, or did I black out for 6 months?

Dominic Zero said...

No, it kind of happened quickly, you know how it is, it's like buying a house..nothing happens for ages then all of a sudden..bam.
We're trading as the old shop for a couple of weeks, then we close, refit & re-open with new stock, which is ALL pirate games.

Cool! I'm kinda snarled up w/ work right now, but will ring soon as poss.

Email me a photo of the shop and I'll post it, unless you wanna be discrete about where you are, etc.

Dominic Zero said...

Yeah - Gimme a call. Home around 6.30 - all day sunday.
Will send you a pic when we re-open, which should be early October - we're still operating under the old banner right now - which is 'Calico' - fashionless women's clothes and kind of shiote ethnic jewelry- it's really not very me. Getting the sign for the shop made up this week...it's all V V exciting.

Will you be wearing said clothing in a pirate stylee?

Dominic Zero said...

Well, Mrs Zero won't let me wear my SS uniform (complete with boot dagger) in the shop, so it looks like pirate gear. Or possibly I'll just wear a giant rabbit suit.
Pirates...is this all to do with the current 'Pirates Of The Carribian' shite?
Johnny Depp's really let himself down there.

Crikey - that's The Omega Man.

How weird: I've just been preparing a Charlton Heston post for my own blog.

Local shop = League of Gentleman reference

Games about Pirates = Little Britain reference...

(sheesh...)

Dominic Zero said...

Ah, yes...Matthias & Zachary.
Go Charlton.

Dominic Zero said...

'Sheesh'.
The League Of Gentlemen = I got, I just stepped over it (because it's soooo old).
Little Britain = it's so fucking unfunny I assumed it wasn't a reference to that.

Still, I hope you make loadsamoney selling dead parrots .... now get out on your b-b-b-bike an' do yer d-d-d-d-deliveries D-D-D-Dominic......

Will it be a shop like the one in Balamory? That really would be creepy....

Dominic Zero said...

I hope it is..we've been playing Sinister Easy Listening in the shop all week.

doppelganger said...

what do you like... sell?

Dominic Zero said...

Well, now.
At the moment...women's clothes (and Nazi Memorabilia out the back).
But we're changing the shop in a week or two so I'll go into detail then.
Although I think we are buying some pirate games.
