So, today is “Embrace Your Geekness Day.” I had to stop for a minute because I thought it was “Embrace Another Geek Day,” which is completely different. I consider myself a geek but it's different when someone else calls me that. Of course I have also been called a block head, square, nerdy, dorky...Where am I going with that? Never mind!
I was searching for pictures of 'geekiness,' but I don't think it's word. But what appeared were a bunch of images that I think are cool, not geeky. Star Wars, Star Trek, computer geeks and a plethora of images of people with Stormtrooper helmets on. A lot of pictures of that. I mean a lot. You could almost say a ton of pictures. If I had a Stromtrooper helmet on it would be the pinnacle of fashion sense. I could wear it with shorts, jeans or even my Santa Claus outfit.
I probably am failing greatly at making you think I am anything but geeky. But let me list all of the things that make me cool, instead. I have Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits, I once saw Billy Joel and Elton John live together, I like Sesame Street, I have a writing pipe (it's like a smoking pipe, but words do not circle my head as I have it in my mouth), I am looking forward to the Smurfs movie and I dig documentaries on TV.
Alright, after reading that last paragraph, I still have not convinced you I am not a geek. Well, I guess a am a geek, so I will embrace it with two arms. Because if being geeky is wrong, I don't wanna be right...
