"You might be...", When Fandoms Collide, and an update on my cat...
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...

You should try to get that made into a shirt! That would be hilarious! And I am sure it would go over well at GC. hehe

*G* Hey - are you going to attend this year or not? I'm going, but I don't know how much time I'll spend there. May just look around... may try to learn a game. Keeping it open.

No I never got a ticket cause no one good was scheduled. Plus by the time I checked, hotels were booked. So I just passed on it this time. Maybe next year.

Well, you know you can always stay with me! But, yes, that's why I'm just going to do a little hanging out - because there's nobody there I'm interested in. *sigh* NO BILLY! *sniffle*

*G* And do you know what TANSTAAFL stands for?

("grok" was a term introduced by Robert Heinlein in his SF classic "Stranger in a Strange Land". It roughly means to "completely understand". It's Martian. It also became a popular counterculture slang word in the late 60's, early 70's, as in "Yeah, man... I grok that. I totally grok your music." *G*)
