Your Sci Fi Catholic on the Nerd Scale


NerdTests.com says I'm a Kinda Dorky Nerd King.  What are you?  Click here!


Whew! According to this, my sci-fi/comic book nerdiness and history/literature nerdiness are high. I'd be really embarrassed to be running this blog if it were otherwise. I could have been extra nerdy if the questions had only been right: it asks if I'm in the middle of a 300+ page book, but what if I'm in the middle of six of them? Don't I get a higher score?

Hey, sorry for the slim pickins on posts lately. We'll see if we can give you more to read and waste time with in the near future. I know Snuffles is currently in one of my folkore books because he's planning a review for the near future, and I still want him to talk about Susan Napier, but he insists he isn't comfortable with that.

Now, to make sure my nerdiness is secure, let's talk about what's wrong with my title, "Kinda Dorky Nerd King." Last time I checked my Nerd Parlance, a dork was not a true nerd, but rather a hanger-on, a nerd fanboy if you will. Dorks, in my experience, are girls in tight T-shirts that read, "Talk nerdy to me" or "I [heart] nerds." And in my experience, such girls either a) already have boyfriends or b) don't live in my area or c) "don't mean that kind of nerd." Being a literary type, I understand myself to be a "geek," as opposed to a true nerd, who is a virtuoso with math or technology. Virtuosos with outdated technology are known as "technoweenies."

And for a final question regarding this nerd rating thing, if all the anime you own is actually your roommate's but is bought with your money because your roommate is both your brother by adoption and a freeloader, does it still count as being yours?
