You know you're a geek when...

I started writing this a few months ago, and it's grown since then...I suspect it will continue to grow. Crazy filmmaker version will come later.

You know you're a nerd when...
You think to yourself as you stir honey and cream into your tea, "This is a mixture. The cream and honey are not chemically uniting with the tea, hence this is a physical reaction only."
You look out the window and notice that a tree has excurrent branching as opposed to deliquisent.
You see a book by H.G. Wells and immediately think, "Hg is the symbol for the element mercury."
You enjoy balancing chemical equations.
You use the word “joy” in relation to balancing chemical equations.
You get annoyed when people use “your” for “you’re” and vice versa.
You get annoyed when people say “lol” and don’t actually laugh out loud.
You then tell said people to think of something more appropriate to say.
You then enjoy it when aforementioned people start using “limh” to please you.
You have a perpetual library fine for returning books late.

You know you're a geek when...
You and your friends debate whether Han really shot first.
You and your friends debate whether the Island actually moved.
You and your friends debate whether Jin is actually dead.
You own a cape.
You mourn the crash of Flight 815 and celebrate Frodo and Bilbo's birthday. (and to that effect, you know what day they are off the top of your head)
You sing Phantom of the Opera songs with fellow Phanatics ON THE PHONE…
You make “deals” with other friends about lending books.
You think that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is the greatest movie in the world.
You get defensive whenever someone tries to make you choose between Star Wars and Star Trek.
You get defensive whenever someone tries to make you choose between Middle Earth and Narnia.
No one ever “gets” your costumes.
Even when you explain that the stripes do *not* make skunk fur, they make Rogue hair.
You analyze Christine’s choice and understand her reasons and turmoil, but still want her to have chosen Erik instead.
You know who *Erik* is.
You know some useful Elvish things to say and actually say them in day to day conversation.

Yes....I am both a nerd and a geek, and proud of it!

When someone says, "I feel nauseous," you reply, "Yes, you're making me nauseated."

Got to hand it to you Lady Brainsample, you are a very unique character. But if it weren't for people like you, the world would be a very dull place.
I know who Erik is and I love chemistry. Does that mean I qualify as a geek or a nerd, too?

Lady Brainsample said...

piningforthefjords: Didn't we have one of those discussions recently??

Princess: Hee hee.... You know him, but not as well as I do. ;)

Countess: Why, thank you! And probably yes. :)

Ha ha! Hg. Yeah, that one made me laugh out loud. Not lol though. ;)

Polka Dotted Pickles: The world of nerdiness is such fun...Limh. :)
