Calling all geeks

There are times when something sparks the beginnings of an idea. Yesterday's geekage seems to have had this effect.

I have a proposition for it's ages since someone said that ;)

I feel the time may be right to launch a Geek League.

Vote now using my geekily prepared widget ------------------------>>>>>>

If the outcome of the vote is a big geeky YES then I'll do some equations and put together some suitably geeky actions and the points earned by doing them.

If you think I've finally lost the plot and would much rather I just shut up and did some sewing do please tell me......

The poll will be open until Monday night at 8pm...or later if no-one votes!!

If anyone knows how to do fancy schmancy geeky league tabley type html blog widgets please shout now......there's a hefty bonus 50 geek points in it for you


edited to say: the Geek League will take place over a set time period, after which there will be a suitably geeky award for Top Geek .

You've got to be in it to win it :)

Katy said...

I know I'll fail miserably, but I shall give it a go!!!!
(trust dotty to sniff out the geek alert first of all!)

monda-loves said...

um, I have to admit, I have no idea what you're talking about. It must be because I'm not a geek!


wonderwoman said...

well i'll just have to say yes, i'll play!!!


Kitty said...

I like to learn something new - and I know no Geek at the moment, so I'm up for a lesson/trial/experiment or two. Will we have to dress as guinea pigs??

Can someone open a book on this please, because I'd like to place a bet on Val thrashing the rest of us.


Marmadaisy said...

Well, I consider myself more of a nerd than a geek. And certainly a pedant. Count me in.

the vicious chicken said...

I am, of COURSE, in for this one :o)

Right up my street, indeedy :o)

Looking forward to the first geekery challenges already!!

... wanders off the flex the ol' geek muscles in preparation... need to limber up in a proper and technical way, y'know... it's what all the best geeks do ;o)

trashalou said...

Are we open to outside help b/c if yes I may just hit the higher levels of the geek table (oh the joy of a physicist in my bed ;-)

quinn said...

sorry, I had to be a "wot?" does this mean I hopeless, or does it mean I am so geeky I don't even recognize the condition???

est said...

i'm qualified to be a geek-er i'm sure! but i don't think i'm a gutso! whatever up in yr sleeve sounds more evil than geeky! lol
anyhoo, you sure hints some geekiness fun!so im in! :)

twiggypeasticks said...

Hmmm I'm more of an artsy ponce than a geek but I am quite nerdy, does that count?

Gina said...

Crikey... you've lost me already but count me in. Hate to be left out of bloggy fun!

Working Mom Knits said...

Sadly, I feel my geek-ness is unreliable (at best)and is greatly influenced by the subject matter...Can TBG be my designated-hitter?

monkee maker said...

Hurrah! I feel blessed that you've already given me a head start with those 13.5 points. Thanks everso!

But sadly I fear they may be the only ones I achieve, as I'm not actually that geek orientated. I'm married to a massive one though .... so I should get bonus points for that, surely??


Angel Jem said...

Geek? Moi?
Just because I chatted up a physicist and got a poster of the Atlas machine in the LHC?
Or is it the fact I'm seriously considering putting it up in the kitchen?

Marie said...

I'm with Mrs Marmadaisy - probably more nerd than geek (although according to the little geek/nerd/dork quiz on her blog I'm actually a cool nerd. Best of both worlds! Woo hoo!)

Count me in :)


Leah said...

Sounds like a great bit of bloggy fun. There must be some geekiness in us all!!

tintocktap said...

Can I play? I think I can manage a spot of geekiness.

Blossom said...

um errrrrrrrr count me in too!!!!!

quiltdude said...

Erm, I'm slighlty worried, not sure what's going on, but I'll take a look on Monday and see what all the fuss is about.
Have a grat weekend you strange Geeky woman you.

Thanks for my points :) I only just saw your comments (for some reason blogger didn't tell me about them???)
Apostrophes are used to denote possession: therefore the mum belonging to Moog is Moog's Mum. Or Moog'smum. But it doesn't matter, because then it doesn't look right at all. I'm just being a nerd.
I have been known to correct shop signs in pen.

Ooh, ooh, pick me, Mrs. Moogsmum!
I have demonstrated the use of a siphon in the kitchen sink, played with custard for scientific purposes, stroke books and have spent TWO entire days counting and measuring limpets...the only conclusion that I drew from this research was that sitting on a very big limpet leaves a very big bruise.

I'm more of a science nerd, but count me in!

Jennie said...

I don't know if I am a geek :/ I am a terribly late geek, I know that!
