Okay, yeah - had a birthday. Feel kinda old now, somehow - I suppose it's because OMG ONE MORE YEAR UNTIL 35!!1!1!!!! But at the same juncture I'm very eh, whatever about it. Wheeee. So thanks to those of you who gave me birthday wishes. My birthday itself was fairly uneventful - got ice cream cake and singing and a card at work, cards and dinner from dad (check from dad too) and brother, a phone call and promise of gift from my mother, a singing phone call from my best friend - oh, and no call or email or anything from my sister. Sigh.
I was tagged by stormwynd on this one:

|Modern, Cool Nerd|
56 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 39% Dork
|For The Record: A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia. A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one. A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions. You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd. |
Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
