White and Nerdy

I Am white and Nerdy... well, I'm more tan and nerdy thanks to my hispanic heritage, but I sit in front of a computer all day so I am a pretty pastey tan. That being said, White and Nerdy definitely does apply. A friend of mine posted a link to this over at his blog Poser Rantings, and I thought it was such a nugget of genius that I wanted to log it here for posterity.

DISCLAIMER: I busted a gut at work in front of countless onlookers with confused looks on their faces. When people are content to write LOL, I actually do it. If you fall into this category then you may want to watch this in the privacy of your office or home, with doors closed. I take no responsibility for lost wages on account of what happens once you click the below link.

Fun Game: Count how many times you say, "That's me!" I am both proud and ashamed to say I hit 15.

You are now ready to proceed to: White and Nerdy

So now I have to admit to the nerdy traits that I posess... well I guess the cat is already out of the bag. I suppose it won't hurt to expose myself even further.

1. MC Escher is my favroite MC. I was an art major in college so this is not hard to believe.

2. Keep your 40 i'll have an herbal tea. I don't drink alcohol, I'll take tea over a 40, any day.

3. My rims never spin to the contrary, you'll find they're quite stationary. I keep the wheels that come with the car I buy.

4. All of my action figures are cherry... I don't play with my toys. I buy lots of them and display them on my desk at work. :D

5. I order all of my sandwiches with Mayonaise. I don't know why that makes me nerdy, but I do it.

6. I'm a whiz at minesweeper I can play for days. I get addicted to simple games like that.

7. I ain't got a gat but I gotta soddering gun. I plan to get a gun someday, but for now all I can do is break your sunglasses.

8. I can sure kick your butt at a game of ping pong. The Edge can kick my butt, but I can kick most other people's butts at ping pong.

9. I buy gifts for peeps I think are cool and get that, "Wow, you shouldn't have... really", look.

10. I know Holy Grail way to well.

11. When my friends need code who do they call? My friends and family call me for any computer question they may come across.

12. I do HTML for them all. I am self taught, but many people I know don't want to trouble themselves with this task, and would rather call me.

13. I love to pop bubble wrap... although I don't get freaky with it.

14. I'm nerdy in the extreme and whiter than sour cream. For a Mexican I am so white people freak out when I can talk to the Taco Truck guy.

15. I love Star Trek... but I fall on the Picard side of the Kirk Picard debate.

So that about sums up my 15 nerdy traits according to Weird Al.

OK, I'll challenge you to a game of ping-pong, next time you visit. :)
As for "claiming" many of the 15, I'll take your word for it since I don't know what a peep, a gat and a MC Escher is.

tonymation said...

Peep is a slang word for people.

Gat is a slang word for gun.

MC Ecsher is an artist that plays with perspective and makes some pretty interesting artwork by tricking the eye or using tesselations. You can see some of his work here:

As for the ping pong challenge... You're on! :D
