It's Be A Dork Day

I am listening to Neil Diamond right now. I think that's all I need to say when it comes to "being a dork." Plus, I admitted I was listening to him.  So, that must be a "double dork" moment!!  In my honest opinion (although why would I state an un-honest opinion...unless I'm describing how an outfit looks on a lady. LADY!!!  Sorry, I had a Jerry Lewis moment.), I'd much rather be thought of as a dork than rude.

Is "dorkiness" a state of mind? Is it a way of being?Is it a conscientious action? Is it a put down? Heck, is "dorkiness" even a word? Am I asking to many questions? Are these questions rhetorical? Is Neil Diamond actually his real name? Is anybody reading this far into my post? What's the square root of 182? OK, I threw that one in there.

Wow, I spent an entire paragraph on questions! I might need to remember that when I don't have an idea of what to write about!!  Especially since my May 22nd post (the last one written before this, uh "masterpiece," was about me bringing new life to this blog.  Seriously though, time to get my thought process back on the dork-side of the tracks. Is "dorkiness" really a state of mind?

When you say that someone is being a dork, I think it conveys the negative as opposed the the positive. Although, I tend to react to being called a dork with a "thank-you." Or maybe even a "thank-you mam. May I have another?"  What qualities makes one a dork? Liking Star Wars AND Star Trek? I personally think of that as a "nerd," not a dork. But that's probably a discussion for another time...

Is devoting time to writing about coffee a dorkish quality? No, I think that's called an addiction.  Is taking a picture of yourself wearing sandals a sign that you have dorkish tendencies? Probably not. Actually, it might be a sign that you have a fetish. If you are listening to the Bee Gees and feel the need to let people know you are listening to them a sign that you have gone to the dork-side? Perhaps so. To others it's a sign that you don't have very good musical taste. I feel that if you are listening to the Bee Gees and want other people to know about it you are a person I need to know!  There aren't enough Bee Gees loving people on this planet!! That's a post for another day, I wish...

So, did I answer the question about what constitutes a dork? Wait, that was the question? I thought this post was about Neil Diamond. Oh well!!  As Neil Diamond once sang, "I am (a dork)...I said."
