And once again I realize how far I've fallen into nerddom. Although my dictionary says that nerd means "a person dedicated to a nonsocial pursuit" and none of my activities are nonsocial ... we need a new word.
Anyway, I was talking to a friend of mine and asked if she'd seen the show Sanctuary starring Amanda Tapping. No, she hadn't, and no, she didn't know who Amanda Tapping was. I know because I happen to like both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. So I proceed to tell her all about the two shows and how it was kinda sad when Tapping left Atlantis to pursue her new show which at first was only shown on the internet but now is on the "SyFy" (I think that new logo is kinda silly ...) channel.
And then I stopped.
And I said, "I'm a nerd, aren't I?"
She laughed good-naturedly at me, thus confirming my suspicions.
I am a tattoo-covered, marathon-lovin' nerd. That just seems like a weird juxtaposition ...
