Getting my geek on

The day before yesterday I had to go into Putney to run an errand. I was passing the local branch of Next when I looked in the window. Now, if you know me well enough, you'd know that's something I don't normally do - unless of course it's a bookshop or a gadget shop that I'm passing.

I suspect it was because Next is right next to Waterstones, but that really doesn't matter. One of the dummies in the window was wearing a T-shirt I just had to have.

Anyone who's had their hands inside a car engine will probably have used a Haynes manual to guide their first fumbling tweak with a shiny new socket set. So when I saw a shirt that purported to be the cover of a Haynes manual for an Imperial AT-AT walker...

Three of my geekinesses in one item of clothing? What's to say no? And there was one in my size!



Now if only I had a socket set big enough.
