Well, maybe not a game as such, but hey, it's something to pass the time!

After reading some of that 'what do you collect' thread, I got to thinking about those of us who spend our time on the internerd.  So I figured, why not get to know your fellow board members' darker sides.  Their geekier/nerdier side.

Sure some are obvious, but how about we all get to know some of our embarrassing quirks/little things that make us tic.

Basically I want to hear about your nerdier moments.  I know you have them!  Maybe something we don't know, or maybe elaborate on something we already know!


I'll start it off:

I'm geeky because I quoted part of Bilbo Baggins' speech from Fellowship of the Ring as part of my thank you for my 21st. 

I think I confused some people...

I'm geeky because I make stupid science or computer related geeky jokes all the time.  There's other reasons, too, but that's the one I'll share.   Twirling

I'm not too sure about geeky, but I have a very embarrassing querk....BIG BLACK FLYING BUGS. I love being outside and doing yard work. I know my neighbors think I have fits at various times. I'll just be working around the yard, watering (a very relaxing job) and all of the sudden I'll start running around, arms waving around like a spase, screaming and laughing at the same time because I know I must look funny and nobody else can see the GIGANTIC,FLYING,BLACK,BUG, that sounds like a B-52 in my face. Many times I have come running into the house screaming and laughing afraid to go back out because I KNOW THAT THING IS OUT TO GET MEEEEEEE.

I have been doing my best to keep my children from being afraid of wildlife, including insects and spiders.  We often get spiders in the house and I catch them with a VHS slipcase and put them outside.  Jenna has done it a few times (she will be 4 in April).

However, last week we had a very large wolf spider in the house while I was at work.  Katie says it was as large as the big spider (either a fishing spider or thin-legged wolf spider) that we found in GA.  It was on the outside of the screen and Katie put her hand on the inside.  Its legs covered her palm palm.  Anyway, the kids were scared of such a large spider - Katie had to put it outside.

We do something similar - spiders get set outside.  About the only small creature my daughter cannot stand is ants - she's been bitten a few too many times (our red ants here leave good welts, as well as hurt for about two days).

My brain is big repository of trivial knowledge and memories that only come out when some unlucky person actually acts interested. Some times I even catch myself wondering how hell I know this stuff.

I'm pretty good at Trivial Pursuit (The Original Series).

I once migrated my old library's website from a Windows NT webserver to Red Hat Linux (version 4.x, IIRC).  I think that counts as geeky.

TAKE THE GEEK TEST

Susan posted this test here in 2004 and if I remember correctly, quite a few people took it.
You'll want to take version 3.1.

Post your results here.   Smile

I'm so geeky that the onyl songs I know are the themes to Willard, Horror High, Fright Night, and Dr. Phibes Rises Again. And when the school said I sucked, I had to recite all Dr. Wily's robot masters for the talent show!
