I'm a nerd. And not the useful kind, who can fix your computer, solve crimes using advanced math, or prove String Theory (though I am working on it). No, I am the really sad and useless kind, who just thinks the other nerds are cool. I like Weird Al, and role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons and Kingdom of Loathing. I like to hear people makes jokes that include the phrase "All Your Base Are Belong to Us". I have a shirt that says "You Are Dumb" in Ascii Binary, and I always enjoy references to Star Trek and Star wars. Hmm.... when I started this post my point was to say that I am a nerd, not that I am a nerd and a great big dork. Wait, why did I want to point out that I am a nerd in the first place? Oh Man!

  1. Of course you're a useful nerd. You're the kind of nerd that the rest of us nerds like to hang out with because you make even us look cool. Just joking. Everyone has quirks (or quarks) right? James likes to tell everyone how embarrasingly much I know about LOTR. It's even emabarrasing that I abbreviate it. See we're all nerds, or wannabe nerds anyway.

  2. So does anyone ever comment on your shirt...have you ever met anyone that could read it?

  3. Nope. No one ever comments on my shirt. Or asks what it says. That is when the fun really starts ("Hey, what does your shirt say?" "You are Dumb") but no one ever asks. It is all just so very sad.

  4. Maybe you started that post to subtly let your friends know that when you tell them that they are cool, you are really just calling them nerds. That way they don't walk around with big heads. The rest of the nerd talk must have just been a smoke screen. Very clever. That kind of thought process could prove to be very useful perhaps not in solving crimes, but maybe in committing them.
