I love you guys! Did you know that?
I write a long wittery post and you Geektastic types pick up a tiny throw away comment and ....you're off!
Little did I appreciate the can of worms that would open when I mentioned the abundance of silver cars on the roads these days. I honestly thought I was the only one who'd noticed!
Seems I was wrong...which is why I think you're great...'cos you 'get it' :)
Anyhoo, apart from playing the 'find the natural resources globe game' and making recycled paper at a junior school's 'Green Day' today I have managed another deliciously geeky moment.
My good friend picked the beasties up from school for me today. When I went to fetch them we got to chatting about the fact that she's just started another module in her degree. She's studying creative writing and has had a novel brewing for some time.
To mark the start of the next stage she's purchased this lovely, and very weighty, tome. So, whilst the kiddlies played on the PS2, we had a lovely time drinking coffee and cooing over this brand new example of wordy goodness. I confess we may even have stroked a crisp new page or two. As she's heading up a new emotional literacy unit at school we also delved in to search for suitable names for her sparkly new facility. You just can't beat a good dictionary. Marvellous :)
Did you have a geeky moment today? Did you do/notice/read something that entertained the geek in you whilst the world passed by, oblivious to your geekery?
You can tell us...we'll understand....
p.s. whilst doing some geeky market research I found this. Maybe you know just the chap to wear it?
