Does anyone else have this problem?

So I bought this necklace at the PMX convention a few weeks ago (for half the price, wheee), and though I love it, I am also exceedingly annoyed by the comments it seems to generate. I'm pleased it's a conversation starter, but when people inevitably say 'Ooh, nice pentagram' or worse ' that a pentagram?' and I reply 'Actually, it's a symbol from my favourite anime series' the blank stares (or condescending ones!) are really just so vexing. I guess I shouldn't go on to say things like 'it's an Alchemic array' or try to explain that a Flamel is 'just like the Cauduceus for medicine, except with one snake' thinking they might actually understand that one. Alas, no. Blank, patronizing smiles are all that I receive, even after attempting to enlighten their ignorant little minds. Le sigh. ;-)

Of course, sometimes I enjoy confounding people, and say Hagane no Renkenjutsushi and other japanese words really fast and giggle when no one understands what I'm saying. Tee hee. *grins impishly*

I just needed to vent. And smirk a bit. Cause I'm like that. *chuckles*
