I feel like I have something to prove.
I scored low in the sci-fi area of the nerd test. Apparently, I am quite bothered by this. I watch & like Star Trek, man….ALL of them from TOS to Enterprise….well, except DS9. I love Star Wars and have, since the first movie came out in May of 1977. My best buds by the dozen and I would load up in somebody’s pickup truck & head to the drive-in theater. We did this many weekends throughout the summer & the following summer, if memory serves me correctly. Yes, we rode around IN the bed of the truck, probably in lawn chairs and have lived to tell of it. (must be careful, my redneck might show and rednecks are most definitely not geeky)
I loved the part of the quiz that said ‘you can obtain a ________ in 15 seconds or less’. I scored very well here….homeschooling is inherently nerdy & we are generally well-equipped nerds. BUT! you need to KNOW that within a minute or two, I can also obtain:
I know the difference between the Green Hornet and Green Lantern. (impressive -eh?)
I do not carry pens & mechanical pencils in my pocket, but I carry them in my purse – in their own zippered pouch, along with a SwissCard.
Oh, what color of lightsaber would you like to play with? Red, blue, green, or would you like to construct your own lightsaber by inserting your own crystal?
Now, about that embarrassingly low computer/tech score….I’m workin’ it baby, I’m workin’ it. I blog in code, not visual. What else can I say?
Well, after looking over this, I realize that I must give due credit to my husband for his geeky influence in my life. I would never have purchased The War of The Worlds audiobook & I don’t read science fiction. I do not like reading books where I cannot pronounce the names of people, places, or things. Sure, I will see almost any superhero movie, but I don’t nor will I ever, do comic books.
