You might be a nerd/geek if...
« on: November 20, 2008, 10:08:20 am »
Hello all! Im not sure if anyone knows this, but I fancy myself a comedian. And since last year, I've been wanting to get into stand-up comedy. However I don't have much material for my act. So today on the bus, I was just thinking about possible stuff to use for my act, because I didn't really have anything else to do except think about school... which only raises my stress level. Anyway, I recently was watching comedy central when they had some Jeff Foxworthy stand-up. And I remembered his signature "You might be a redneck" routine. Which got me thinking.

There are people out there who don't know if they are nerd/geek or not. Suprising as this sounds, it's true. I know a girl who lives in California who one night asked me if she was a nerd or not. I think you know where this is going. Now, from what I can tell, there IS a difference between a nerd and a geek. But some people have different definitions of the two, or just kinda lump the two together.

Okay, now to the fun part!
Start your sentence with "You might be" or "You know you are", or something like that. Well, just follow my lead.

"You know you're a geek, when you get a coloscopy bag so you can play WOW longer."

You might be a nerd if an episode of Naruto changed your outlook on life.

True story from my life.........
You might be a geek if
as soon as your tv-hating boyfriend falls asleep, you sneak online to read the Heroes Graphic Novels.

If your girlfriend/boyfriend leaves with another guy/gal while you are playing WOW, you might be a geek.

If your girlfriend/boyfriend leaves with another guy/gal while you are playing a hentai dating sim, you might be a geek and an idiot.

If you started watching Sailor Moon epiode 1 this morning and this evening you tell your spouse "I'm coming to bed after this episode is over." you might be a geek.

If you refer to your manga as "My babies." you might be a geek.

If you spend all your time on KumoriCon message boards, you might be a geek.   ;D

If you run around yelling "I WON THE GAME", you might be a geek (as well as very annoying).

If you have a cosplay for every day of the week, you might be a geek.

If you watch anime fansubs on your I-pod, you might be a geek.

If you text message your friends while watching Death Note in the theater, you might be a geek.

Hmmm...  that's all for now.

First to Mustach--best post *evah* (at least as far as non-political spam goes!)

If your greatest sense of accomplishments comes from finding and solving all the Easter Eggs in your DVD collection, you might be a geek.
*guilty--I've even looked online for clues when stumped.

If you still have your original edition Atari, you might be a geek.
*guilty*

If you have more chains around your neck than an '80s rap band, when you attend a con, and they're all lanyards and laminates from staffing previous cons, you might be a geek.
*I don't do it, but could....*

If you watch a fan-vid such as Done the Impossible (a Serenity/Firefly fan vid), and you're friends with the fans featured in it, you might be a geek.

If your favorite cameo is Stan Lee in Mall Rats, you might be a geek.
*partly guilty*

If your cosplay is so obscure that only a handful of fanficcers recognize it (but they hail you and give homage when you do), you might be a geek.
*guilty--when I was Aragog on rollerskates from the boggart scene in HP & the Prisoner of Azkaban for the Deathly Hallows book release & the Order of the Phoenix film release.* *also got this response when a dolphin wearing a So Long, & Thanks for All the Fish! sign--see my avatar :)*

If you dream your fanfics before, during, and after your time writing them, you might be a geek.
*guilty*

Love this thread!

If you sing along perfectly (maybe not harmoniously) with the opening (or endings and whatnot) to various anime shows.....even if you are not watching them at the moment.

We are just making fun of ourselves.  Otaku = Geek in the majority of minds.  If you want to replace geek with otaku in the anime themed ones feel free.

I took Oceanography in High School for college credit.  I still remember all the slides (shiver).  That was the first time I had squid.  The instructor brought some in and cooked it.  The only scientific name I still remember is the one for my catfish I had in my aquarium. Corydoras aeneus.  I have no idea why I remember that.  I also learned a lot about the RV Calypso after building the model and writing a report on it.  Jacques-Yves Cousteau was a great man, who did a lot for us all.  He will be missed.

You might be a geek if you correct every person who says a japanese word around you, even if you mispronounce them yourself.

You might be a geek if you get angry when Manga is printed the american way. Instead of backwards.

You might be a geek if you can name all the first 150 pokemon, and you ARE one if you can name more.

You might be a geek if you own every animal or creature of tamagotchi or giga pet ever put out, or more than 5.

You ARE a nerd if you wear Naruto emblems to school, or the mall. (Outside of con)

You might be a nerd/geek if you can name more than five Japanese eras.

You might be an art nerd/geek if you can look an an anime like Blue Seed, Pheonix Wright, or InuYasha and freak out because a character has a magatama on them somewhere (chest, necklace, "Sit" beads)

If you knew what a magatama is without googling it, you are an art nerd. Congratulations. For the rest of you: http://letmegooglethatforyou.com/?q=What+is+a+magatama%3F (minus the catty little note ;))

You might be a Japanese art nerd/geek if you freak out when a pokemon resembles Japanese art. (Bronzor and Bronzong, for instance).

You ARE a Japanese literary nerd/geek if you see any sort of flower EVER and suddenly your "sleeves are wet with tears".

You might be a nerd/geek if you know that Sasuke is the name of a famous ninja story that came out way before Naruto.

You might be a nerd/geek if you consider yourself a ninja just by trying a shirt around your head.

If you crave fish-shaped waffles filled with bean paste, and you aren't in Japan, you may be a geek.

If your entire DVD collection is nothing but sci-fi and anime titles, you may be a geek.

If you bring tons of snacks to Anime Friday just so that more people will show up, you may be a geek.

If your richest relative calls you up to come help take the wheels off his new house, you may be a redneck.

If you are ever too drunk to fish, you may be a redneck.

If you yell kanpai when drinking, you may be a geek.

If you tell your down on his luck friend to "do your best", or "ganbatte" you may be a geek.

If you quote lines from anime, obscure and well known, to highlight your point of view, you may be a geek.

An? With Azuki beans?

Jaybug, for a mild correction, you might also be a business man if you yell "kanpai" while dancing with your pants off in front of a group of people ;)

I recommend the movie "The Colonel Moves to Japan" or something similar. It's a documentary on KFC being introduced to Japan in the 80's. Also, "Tanpopo". I think it's about making ramen. I really want to watch that again.

You may be a nerd if, on what may be your last trip back across the country to your childhood home for quite some time, you schedule the plans your high school friends want to have with you around watching Chuck and Heroes (when they're actually on TV), and imagine that as a true highlight of your vacation (since your boyfriend doesn't want you to watch tv).
......Uh, yeah. True. I wouldn't miss the Casey-focussed ep for anything! LOL.

What's funny about that is they call them "mitama" in Blue Seed.

OMG!!!  I'm a nerd/geek!!!  Oh, wait, I already knew that.


You might be a nerd/geek if you've seen more Hayao Miyazaki films than Disney animated motion picures.

^^;;;;; It's from Empire Strikes Back. The scene where Han and Leia have their first kiss...I've had it memorized since I was 11...

Han: Hey your Worship, I was only trying to help!
Leia: Would you PLEASE stop calling me that?!
Han: Sure, Leia
Leia: You make it so difficult sometimes...
Han: I do, I really do. You could be a little nicer though. Come on, admit it, sometimes you think I'm alright...
Leia: *hurts her hand while trying to fix something on the Falcon* Occasionally....Maybe...when you're not acting like a scoundrel
Han: *starts rubbing her hand* Scoundrel? Scoundrel! I like the sound of that.
Leia: Stop that.
Han: Stop What?
Leia: Stop THAT! My hands are dirty!
Han: My hands are dirty too, what are you afraid of?

Leia: Afraid?
Han: You're trembling.
Leia: I'm not trembling.
Han: You like me because there aren't enough scoundrels in your life.
Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han: I am a nice man..!
Leia: No you're not, you're a-

You might be a geek if you get out of bed in the middle of the night because you just dreamt something you really want to post on KC forums and don't want to risk forgetting it!
*guilty*
You might be a geek if you *have actually been in the middle of a pirates vs. ninjas LARP*, because you've LARPd being a pirate in the SCA on & off for nearly a decade (way before the Caribbean movies), & your (now-ex) boyfriend organized a ninja raid on one of the principalities' camps......yeah that happened. (2002).
You might be an old-school geek if whenever you meet someone named Joshua, you smile, as that's the password to the WOPR in War Games. Ditto if you think of War Games every time there's a Whopper commercial on TV or you drive past a Burger King. Ditto if you randomly a couple times a year imitate a computer voice saying 'Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?' or 'Greetings, Professor Falken.' Uh, yeah. Guilty all the way around. Ditto again when I saw Matthew Broderick in a bit part at Homeland Security on 30 Rock & thought of that as being like the Treasury Dept. hiring the guy diCaprio played in Catch Me if You Can.

You might be from a family of geeks if the most coveted Chanukah presents are generally books of movie and TV trivia.--Just mailed some to my aunts & uncles in their 50s-60s.

You might be an old-school geek if you still have some trading cards from 1977-9 (mine include Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Charlie's Angels, and Grease).

You might be a geek if the present you gave someone for giving the keynote speech in your fanfic room was a handful of Buffy collectible cards (that would be me to Professor Toni Levi, PhD).....

You might be a geek if you would have more fun staying up all night writing in this thread than going to sleep.....guilty again.

You might be a geek if you took so long having fun writing in this thread that the system logged you out, but since you've lost data before you'd already copied the text & were able to post as soon as you logged back in! (guilty again and on that note, sweet dreams)

Went and watched the video after NightLotus's post.  Kawaii.

Reminded me of something:

You might be a nerd/geek if you played theme music from an animated film at your wedding.
(guilty)

Interesting story, when The Secret of NIMH was released in 1982, my wife (then girlfriend) and I saw it at the drive-in 3 times.  We liked the film so much that I decided to record the soundtrack.  Since drive-ins broadcast the audio over the radio I just took in a portable radio and tape deck combo and recorded the audio to cassette.  Three years later we were trying to decide on what to play at our wedding and pulled the tapes out.  We ended up using Flying Dreams because we both loved the scene of Jeremy and his female crow flying off into the sunset.  Here is a YouTube clip of the song used in a Final Fantasy AMV:

And again major props for these posts...I love Wuntvor's romantic story, would enjoy reading the aforementioned haiku's by Patrick & Megchan, love Tron (did you note the poster of Tron in Chuck's bedroom on this week's ep, featuring Bruce Boxleitner, who was in Tron??), use onomatopoei all the time (in fact have friends whose band name is Onomatopoeia!)....and wow, naming a computer Joshua....can you set it to play itself in Tic-Tac-Toe and watch it learn? :)

(guilty).
--you think the coolest thing about Masi Oka is that he used to work at Industrial Life and Magic
(guilty).
--you automatically know that means he worked for a George Lucas project

You might be an old-school geek if:
You actually remember, and probably still have at your parents' house, the Time Magazine with Masi Oka on the cover, on the theme of Asian-American Whiz Kids.
Guilty--my parents subscribed to Time; my high school was featured in one of its cover stories around the same time; and my town and school were nearly 1/3 Asian 1st or 2nd generation (and close to 2/3 Jewish, including many new immigrants as well).

You might be a nerd/geek if...
you keep thinking up so many of these that you end up double-posting
*ahem*
--you read the H.R.G. files and Beamin' Beemin religiously for Heroes spoilers.

You might be a soap opera nerd if...
--you were already a fan of Heroes' Adrian Pasdar (Nathan) from Judging Amy.
--you were already a fan of Heroes' Milo Ventiglimia (spelling? -- Peter) from Gilmore Girls.
Yep, and yep.
--you were already a fan of Supernatural's Jared Padeleki from Gilmore Girls.
--you frequently goof up which brother is Dean and which is Sam on Supernatural because Jared (Sam) played a character named Dean on Gilmore Girls.
--you were already a fan of Supernatural's Jensen Ackles from Smallville and (much more so) Dark Angel.
Yep, yep, yep.

You might be an old school soap opera nerd if...
--you were already a fan of Heroes' Jack Coleman (HRG) from Dynasty.
(Yep; his character was notoriously bi, at a time that that actually was daring for the network.)
--you were already a fan of Jensen Ackles from when he was Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives.
(Guilty--sort of. I watched him avidly, but at the time, his eyes kept shifting back & forth so frequently that I found it distracting; and his character was boring.)
--you started watching Buffy in part because you'd loved to hate scheming Kendall Hart (later Kendall Lang) on All My Children.
(Totally. Thank you, AMC, for leading me to my true love of all media: The Whedonverse.)

Speaking of the Whedonverse:
You might be an old school nerd if you first fell in love with Adam Baldmwin not from Chuck, not from Serenity, not even from Firefly, not even from Angel--but from My Bodyguard......sigh :0

Speaking of My Bodyguard:
(The following will be spoilerific for both My Bodyguard and Heroes):

You might be a bit too much of a nerdy conspiracy theorist if you wonder if there's a link between My Bodyguard and Heroes, in that Baldwin's character (who is reputed to be a terror and looks quite imposing, but is protective at heart and in practice) is named Linderman (see episode "Villians" aired 11/10/08).

Okay with 2 such strong endorsements, I've gotta see it! *hopes it's online somewhere*

You might be a geek if, when you see an add for the Mamma Mia! sing-along at your local theater, you (a) are fully ready to participate, having already been singing at home for weeks; (b) were already fully ready to sing along and add your own feedback to the screen, and did so, because you grew up with Rocky Horror Picture Show and Mystery Science Theater; (c) can't help but giggle remembering Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog; (d) remember that you printed out the lyrics to Dr. Horrible's to be able to sing along next time you have free time on Hulu....and (e) that would be sorta the 'social' highlight of your week, when you got to tell your online and phone friends about it.
Yeah....I'm like that! ....I have a great boyfriend; he's just not into most media.....

Wrong! the longest word in the English language is 1185 letters and it's a protein. :/

the actual longest word is 189,819 but its not in the dictionary. it is also a protein which means it's still a word. :3

@Sporty - That was one of the reasons, yes, but it was also because (from what I understand) they wanted a way to guarantee no more TNG movies.

@Mustash - That wasn't the moment I was specifically refering to.  I meant in the episode where Data builds a daughter, Lal.  I've seen that episode 4 or 5 times before, but for some reason, this time it made me cry when she "passed away."

If you dream of having a robot wife, you might be a nerd/geek.

"You know you're a geek, when you get a coloscopy bag so you can play WOW longer."
I think that should be 'colostomy.'

You're a gun-geek if you watch 'Gunslinger Girls' and can tell that's *not* an HK G3 but a CETME knock-off because of the gas ports in the forestock are wrong...

You maybe a geek if you own and can use an abacus, slide rule, a Kurta mechanical calculator, or a planimeter.
And you can beat a hand calculator.

You can flawlessly quote any four contiguous lines of dialogue from any Monty Python skit or movie.

You can quote any line from The Blake 7.

You tell tech-jokes or puns which use physics or chemistry terms. And your friends get the jokes.

You try to find an alloy phase diagram that would make a good pattern for an evening dress.

You read a recipe and start thinking through the protein chemistry changes caused by temperature plus the lemon juice lowering the pH, and know the oxidation states of whichever elements will get that "golden brown" color mentioned when it's done.

When computer code appears in a movie, you recognize the language and you can spot the bugs. And Camel Case is 'old school.'

You can build a working crystal radio set with stuff around your house, including making a working semiconductor junction with, say, a piece of galena or other mineral you picked up outside.

You have your own weather instruments and can beat the Weather Channel on an accurate 4-day forecast for your local area.

If you're totally mystified by some of what's in Prinz Eugene's post, but *really* wanna learn how to do some of it (particularly assembling the radio and using found rocks or whatnot), you might be a nerd/geek or at least a wanna-be! *guilty*

If you watch an ep of The Big Bang, and you actually follow all or almost all of what the nerd/geek lead characters say, and not only comprehend it, but debate it or add accurate commentary upon it on the commercial break, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If you watch The Big Bang because you enjoy refreshing your memory on topics such as quantum physics more than you bother with the whole romantic tension subplot, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If you actually find someone from whom you can learn esoteric information sexier than someone intellectually bland but physically looking like a model, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If you watch My Name is Earl because you love Jason Lee from Mall Rats and Chasing Amy, you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty*

If someone asks what your favorite scene from Batman is, and yours is from a comic from before you were born or from the original series, you might be an old-school nerd/geek.

If your friend is talking about the rock band, The Who, but you keep giggling because you're thinking of something you saw on Dr. Who, you might be a nerd/geek. If it's from the original series, you might be an old school nerd/geek.

If you were watching the ep of "Chuck vs. Tom Sawyer," involving **spoiler alert!**

the '80s arcade game, Missile Command,

and you were mentally playing along and correcting the moves in the game,
you might be an old school nerd/geek.

If you were watching "Chuck vs. Tom Sawyer," as above, and knew all the lyrics to the titular Rush song, and sang along with it, you might be an old school nerd/geek. *guilty* And if, while doing so, you proudly pointed out that Geddy Lee (singer of Rush) is Jewish, you might be a Jewish old school nerd/geek. *guilty*. Speaking of which, Happy Chanukah (12/21 eve) everyone. Oh and if you ever heard the story of Chanukah, and tried to envision how one might scientifically keep a menorah aflame for 8 days on only one cruze of oil, you might be a Jewish nerd/geek. *guilty*

Ill be six months on Christmas. Its our first and we are SUPER excited! And I dont think Ive said it in the forums yet but ITS A BOY!

*Back on Topic :)*

You might be a geek if your plotting cosplays for a 1 year old that wont make him uncomfortable.

You might be a geek if you get irratated in Suncoast for changing all the names of the Animes you grew up watching! No more english names!

You might be a geek if your plans for the winter ivolve camping in a self constructed igloo for the night. *Not mine, David's and friends*

You might be a geek if you just HAD to buy the Limited Batman Edition phone as soon as you saw it. *Guilty*

If you're totally mystified by some of what's in Prinz Eugene's post, but *really* wanna learn how to do some of it (particularly assembling the radio and using found rocks or whatnot), you might be a nerd/geek or at least a wanna-be! *guilty*
Gah! It's "Eugen" (OY-gen) not "Eugene" (you-GENE.)

Next Happy Hannukah to ALL, while we're thinking about it! And very cool on Geddy Lee and RUSH.

OK back to geek-a-zoid life: The guy that did the crystal radio from galena was one of my good friends from high school. He was prez of the ham radio club and new tons about circuits and tubes (he could identify what many of them did by their numbers - I just know about 3 or 4.) There are also books about how to make your own vacuum tubes using ashtrays and epoxy. Much geeking required...

If you can convince non-nerds that what you're doing is logical and maybe even cool, you're an awesome nerd/geek.

Quote from: Sporty_Otaku
dressing up for football games
Speaking of football and other sports, isn't there (generally) an inverse relationship between interest in sports on TV and interest in things that geeks and nerds tend to get into? The correlation may be weak, or maybe stronger. So:

You may be a geek if someone mentions 'the playoffs' or 'semifinals' and you have no clue what sport it is.

You could score a perfect zero on any quiz where you match the college or the city to its sports teams. Or the team name to what sport they play.

Truth is geekier than fiction: Back in the VCR days, we came up with the term 'crudball' for any sport that runs overtime and eats into the SF show you are trying to tape so as to watch later... If you press 'play' and see guys and a ball instead of spaceships and cool costumes, the sport you are watching is a crudball game.

You might be a *relatively broke* nerd/geek if you just hooked your VCR back up after a year or two dormant, because you can't afford to buy or rent new anime or pay for cable, so you're going to watch the VHS tapes you got on sale for $5 each from Emerald a couple years ago instead.
Yeah that would be me.

If you hear a football commentator on TV referring to a "crossplay" & think of ManFaye, ManRei, or Sailor Bubba, you might be a nerd/geek.

(Tidpit of info: in football, crossplay is an offensive play where the quarterback passes the ball to a runningback, about eight yards to his left or right; it's similar to a lateral pass.  Crossplay is also a spiking technique in volleyball).

If, while your Christian boyfriend is mentioning the Dead Sea Scrolls, your mind immediately leaps to "Ninja Scroll," you might be a nerd/geek. *just happened this morning*

If, when your boyfriend tells you to quit using the word 'cute' so much, you automatically switch to 'kawaii', you might be a nerd/geek. If, when your boyfriend is puzzled wondering why you'd refer to an island of Hawaii, and you have to explain 'kawaii' to him, you might be a nerd/geek who seriously needs to nerdify or geekify her partner to stay afloat. *just happened this hour*

If you love Hello Kitty so much that even your hanging air freshener is Hello Kitty, you might be a nerd/geek. *looking right at mine now*

If Anthony Michael Hall's character was the one with whom you most identified the first time you saw "The Breakfast Club," you might be a nerd/geek. *guilty* Especially if one of your favorite scenes in the whole movie is when he gives himself a light jab on the chin congratulating himself for how well he wrote the Club's closing salvo to the Principal. *guilty* Especially if you remember that piece virtually word for word. *guilty back in the day*.

You might be a nerd/geek if, when someone asks you to describe what it means to be dating someone who's basically a Buddhist monk, the examples that immediately come to mind are from Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service.

You might be a nerd/geek if, when you see a teddy bear, you cry a little, thinking of the

Holocaust storyline in an issue of Pet Shop of Horrors manga (I think it was in #3?).

You might be a nerd/geek if, when someone comments about how something is unexpectedly rapidly dissolving (Emergen-C vitamin packet in hot water), you immediately relive the 14th episode of Firefly, Objects in Space (I think it's called?), in which

River states that she's dissolved into the ship, Serenity (from a voice offscreen), which 'nobody knew' that she could do.
*This just happened Friday.*

You might be a nerd/geek if, when someone mentions the 'reverb' on a car stereo, you shudder, remembering the 'reavers' from the Serenity movie.

But it would make English poetry more interesting, don't you think?

-You might be a nerd/geek if you know that Spock has superior strength because the gravitational pull on Vulcan is three times greater than that on earth (it says that in one episode anyway).

-If you understand why 28 Days Later is not a real zombie movie.

-If you make t-shirts using images from the original Dawn of the Dead, adding clever captions.

-If you own a Klingon dictionary.

-If you suck at life, but you're god in Morrowind : )

About ten years ago, my church had a guest speaker who was talking about how important communicating is.  He used that very same episode as an example.

If you debate on how to prove 1+1=2, you might be a nerd/geek.

If you've ever walked into a comic book store, and proceeded to go "OMG! I got to get that!", you might be a nerd or a geek.

I've done this before, but what I saw was the Zombie Survival Guide.

you know you're a nerd/geek when you're in the library, and ask the lady at the front of the teens section whether they've gotten anymore manga in (because you've read it all)
You know you're a nerd/geek if you stop going to your library's anime events because you've seen all of the anime movies they show, and all of the people around you talk about things that happened about 100 episodes ago in your book.
You know you're a nerd/geek if you're parents get mad at you for spending all of your time on forums, youtube, cosplay.com, and sewing your cosplays.
You know you're a nerd/geek if you wont sing a song in english in front of a crowd, but when they're an anime karaoke contest, you're in
You know you're a nerd/geek if you go to a comic book shop and teach the owner about some of the old dusty comics they have.

I don't have my DI patches yet.....but I do frequently dream in the Lost 'verse....so....you might be a geek if you frequently wake up, after a dream in which you were living in the universe of your chosen fandom, with an epiphany about which you just *have* to immediately (a) write fanfic; (b) call/text/skype/gchat a fellow addict within your fandom; and/or (c) post on forums or fan pages about your given fandom.

And you might be a geek if you are seriously considering getting a 2nd job, specifically to be able to (a) afford a hotel room at con; (b) attend the Browncoat Ball (yeah!)

You might be a nerd/geek if you can distinguish a voice actor from the voice over on a commercial.

Example: Maurice LaMarche (Brain from Pinky and the Brain and various actors from Futurama) is Toucan Sam from the Fruit Loops commercials and an old car commercial voice over.
The Professor from the Powerpuff girls is another common one.

Spike Spegiels actor was also Wolverine in Hulk Vs. Wolverine movie, but that's not a commercial. It was just flat-out weird.

I've begun taking Akido, does that count?
(I'm guessing it does)

IDEA!
I'm going to go through and count all of them. Then I'm going to type them up on another thread (with a link to this one) and have people tally points. You know, like how many of these things you can do?
I think that would be cool.

if you try using your powers from a larp, tabletop, or video game in real life, than wonder why it's not working.

if you have spent years downloading stuff online that's information for a series you like, but then find out after a year, that you have downloaded so much, it takes up two full cardboard boxes just for that. (I have Full Metal Alchemist, and Star Wars taking up over half my closet in information alone)

You attend a Harry Potterluck party (yes, that's what it was called), at a bar, in full cosplay, go home with the hosts afterwards, & read them your fanfic, at their request.
Yes this was the highlight of my birthday weekend

you might be a nerd/geek if you know which tropes you embody.
All depression has its roots in self-pity, and all self-pity is rooted in people taking themselves too seriously.

Checks to see if he is in the horribles puns thread.  Nope. Hmmm....

Glad to hear you had a nice Birthday.  Did you get my message on your answering machine?  (debates if he should have sung Happy Birthday)  ;D

You might be a nerd/geek if you are considering driving 6 hrs round trip to see your friend spatter blood on the audience in the live action Evil Dead, the Musical (in Bend). And if you're a Gleek who's thrilled Joss will direct an ep (& don't need a last name for Joss).

I called (541) 543-9524.  I got an answering machine and a message that sounded like you.  I'll update my address book.  Is either number a cell?  I also asked you if you were going to see the Eureka 7 movie.  Sounds like you were having more fun at your Harry Potterluck.   ;D

Thanks, the # you called was mine for years but stopped working, guess someone else has it now. The one posted yesterday's a cell, gets texts.

If you've written a book on the texting tongue and translating it into "Layman's Terms"...you might be a geek.

Sorry, & I knew it from both...but this leads into my next item. If you actually have looked at the profile pages of some of your forum friends, because you only know them from online & you have no one to go to the new Miyazake film with & wonder who lives in your home town, you might be a geek. (I never did make it to Ponyo. It seemed to open & close so fast!)
If you have exchanged online greeting cards beladen with characters from your favorite anime, with people you only know from online otaku forums, you might be a geek.
If your list of items out from the library is longer than your list of items to buy at the grocery store, you might be a geek.
If half your itunes are from soundtracks to films you saw because you loved the books and/or manga they were based on, you might be a geek.
If you have a box on your shelf waiting for the right companion to help you build a miniature model of Leonardo da Vinci's flying machine, you might be a geek.
If you spent a couple hours today going from hobby store to hobby store to find the exact figurine you wanted, you might be a geek.
If you had a great day --EXCEPT that your roommate tied you up with a project & did not let you watch V, so as soon as he leaves for work, you're going to try to find an episode recap, you might be a geek.
If you're trying to figure out how to save up $60 so you can get Arkham Horror, you might be a geek.
If you already knew that Arkham Horror was a Lovecraft RPG, you might be a geek (& should meet me) :)
Yes these all apply to me, & sooooo many more.
