Because I’m feeling extra cross today
I think there should be a limit to the types of “geekery” one can claim for oneself. I know people who describe themselves as A-through-Z geeks. For the word to have any actual meaning, though, to mean something like “having a deep and abiding interest in and an arcane and unusual level of knowledge about X,” which is how I understand it (and which, by the way, is not equal to “I read the wikipedia entry about it last week!”), it’s kind of unreasonable to say OH I’M A THIS-GEEK!! every time a topic comes up. Unless, of course, one is Leonardo.
There’s no shame in just being interested in and enjoying something, without being a geek. Or is otaku the new geek?
In other non-news, the renos are still not complete, after week 8 of 5. Woo-hoo! however, we have graduated to having a toilet and sink on the lower level, so I guess we beggars should be glad for what we can get. Oh, wait, we’re not beggars, we’re paying customers.
