- Are you a loser?
no. Frankly, I don’t care for that question, or it’s tone. Also, who the hell would say yes?
- What “geeky” activities do you take part in (games, trivial pursuits, etc)?
you know what? I know where you are going with this, and I don’t like it. You are supposed to ask if I was a ‘nerd’ in high school, right? I am supposed to say I was a total nerd, and didn’t have any friends, but it taught me character… and that nerds were cool before it was cool. Every fucking celebrity says this shit “oh, I was a loser in high school.” No you weren’t, and neither was I. I was happy and decently popular. High school was a great time, an amazing time. I hope it was for you, too… because you can never go back.
- Are you out of the closet about your geek
goddamnit I am not a geek. I was never a geek, to my knowledge. I was never in band, or theater. Those are the people who I thought of as geeks. I know that programmer and gamer types are considered geeks, but when I grew up there weren’t computers yet, and video games sucked… it was this. I shit you not, this was computer gaming. This game was called ‘Choplifter‘, and I LOVED it. I played it for hours on the Commodore 64. No I didn’t have one, we weren’t cool enough or rich enough. I had friends with one, so that was close enough. So, the concept of ‘geek’ is different. I had no interest in academia, sadly. I had long hair and played guitar, life was pretty sweet.
- Does your significant other join in on these activities? (Or, if single, would a potential SO have to?)
what activities? My ‘geek’ activities? Listen, I am sorry high school didn’t work out for you, but get off my dick already.
- Geekiest public moment?
Let’s say I had one, would I tell you? and the internet, where it would live forever? You think I am going to tell you about the time I cut my own hair right before my birthday party when I was really young and I didn’t want to come out of my room? You want shit like that, America? Well, you ain’t getting it! Now get off my lawn!
* btw > see all those number 1’s up there? I am on an apple and the formatting is a pain in the ass. Yes, I blame the computer. Plus, WordPress has made things so simple for me that I have forgotten most of my html skilz. I used to have to write all this in HTML, now the programs do it for me. It’s pretty cool. This means even you could have a web site. Do it!
