Whenever I talk about nerdy stuff, I feel like I'm simultaneously giving my nerd credentials and name dropping.
something wonderful about people who make references to nerdy type
things. Literature. Comics. Manga. Movies. Old music. Especially in
casual conversation. It's so wonderful. It's like an inside joke you can
have with a complete stranger. You don't know each other, you don't
know a thing about them. But you feel they are all right because you
over heard them talking about something like Doctor Who. Or maybe they
were talking about something about their favorite Jedi and you knew who
it was, even though he's a rather obscure character. (My favorite's
Quinlan! You've never heard of him? I'm not surprised.... #hipster) Or
it's a friend of a friend, and you're just chilling together while the
mutual friend is off being social. And you start a conversation about
It makes me so happy to be able to nerd out with
someone else who's a huge fan of the same things. So. Very. Happy.
Pretty much, if any one could reference all of the things I nerd about
the most in casual conversation.... Well, let's put it this way. If they
asked me to marry them, I'd say yes and be completely serious. Da da da
da, you found a winner!
I kind of want to mention all the nerdy goodness I can, just to see if someone else is just as nerdy as me in all the ways as me.
