First things first - my cat is doing amazingly well after having a fatty tumor removed and getting about 7 stitches. They've been removed and, except for the shaved area, you'd never know he had surgery. Amazing animals, cats!
When Fandoms Collide: This is for Kam and Gaya. Guess what? *G* They're making Chucks with John Lennon on them. *L*! No, seriously!
"You might be a Geekhead..."
Are you familiar with the comedy routine by Jeff Foxworthy, where he lists characteristics that tell you "you might be a redneck"? Example: "If you open up and drink a beer at a funeral... you might be a redneck." Well, for GenCon, I started thinking of things that indicate you might be a geekhead, and here's what I came up with:
If you “grok” TANSTAAFL… you might be a geekhead
If you went to “I, Robot” to see how it was different from the books… you might be a geekhead
If you’ve re-read LOTR every year since you first read it – in elementary school… you might be a geekhead
If you know what LOTR, FOTR, TTT, and ROTK stand for… you might be a geekhead
If your first reaction at seeing the assassin in “The Bourne Supremacy” was “Hey! That’s Eomer!”… you might be a geekhead AND a fangirl
If you set up your movie-watching schedule in 2004 based on which movies involved LOTR actors… you might be a geekhead AND a fangirl
If you still love the ORIGINAL Star Trek… you might be a geekhead
If you called your ’66 Ford Falcon “The Millenium Falcon”… you might be a geekhead
If your basement (or, worse yet, extra bedroom) is filled with action figures… you might be a geekhead
ETA: If you can think of funnier ways to say these, or funny things to add, let me know! But I might use them, unless you say otherwise. *G*
One person alread suggested: "If you have more action figures - STILL IN THEIR BOXES - than you played with as a kid..." *G*
*G* What do you think? I wonder if I can get it on a t-shirt...
