Friends, the time has come for me to confess...that I am a geek. A nerd. A person who gets embarrassingly excited about odd things.
I know, this is probably shocking. Have a seat. Make yourself a cup of tea. I'll wait.
Okay? All settled?
That's good because I have some more disturbing claims to make. The thing is, I've long had a suspicion that if you read this blog, you just might be a geek too.
Now, now. Don't get all up in arms. I'm not saying you definitely are. I'm just saying there's a good chance you might be.
And if you're still reading, and have accepted yourself as such, how about a little friendly competition, eh? No, not the kind that requires things like running or hand-eye coordination (puh-leeze). The kind that involves showing off our most prized possessions and having a...GEEK-OFF.
I'll begin and, I admit, I'm starting off strong.
There's a (non-working) fireplace in my apartment that came with a pretty little embellished design. Like so:
As we were painting it, my friend Bryan had an idea. Which my boyfriend, Graig, then executed.
Friends, I present to you...the crest of GRYFFINDOR!
Yeah. Uh-huh. That's right.
So...got something geeky to show me? Link to it in the comments below. Bring it...[pausing to use my inhaler]...on!
