NERD

That's right. I said it. I'm a nerd. Ya'll already knew that I had an unhealthy, borderline crazy obsession with school. It's almost sickening how excited I get about taking tests for certain classes, but that isn't close to the full extent of my nerdiness. I know, you thought it couldn't get worse, right? Oh just you little wait. I've got more for you. If you can handle it, read on, grasshopper, read on.

MAL'S LIST OF THINGS THAT MAKE HER A MASSIVE NERD:
-I absolutely adore Star Wars and I think Yoda is the source of all wisdom.
-I call people young padawan when I'm teaching them new things. Most of my students don't get it. 
-I'm holding out to marry James Tiberius Kirk. 
-If I can't marry Kirk, Peeta will do nicely.
-I enjoy saying "Live long and prosper" and do my best to work it into conversations.
-Ender's Game is one of my top three favorite books and I read it once every six months.
-If I could pick a character in a book to be my best friend it would be Harry Potter. No questions asked. 
-I can word for word quote episodes of "Firefly".
-One of my life goals is to attend Comic-Con and it almost killed me that I couldn't go this year.
-I think that just about everything that Joss Whedon does is sheer brilliance.
-I have spent entire weekends watching Lord of the Rings' extended editions and not even come close to getting sick of them.
-A secret little part of me wants to learn Elvish.
-I have the secret desire to check the backs of wardrobes just in case Narnia really does exist.
-I can't wait until Tron comes out.
-I saw X Men 2 at least 6 times in the theater. I'm not joking. Ask Aubrie. She went with me all 6 times.
-I firmly believe special features were meant to be watched so I watch them all. 

There's more, but I think that I've confessed enough for one day. So, dear readers, please do tell me something nerdy about yourself so that I don't feel as though all my confessing has been in vain.

If I'm right there with ya on more than half of those, does that make me a nerd too? Cuz if so I'm in trouble.

Especially I heart Ender's Game - only I'm not a 14 year old boy....so....ya know.

Also I'd be flattered if you called me young padawan. Sad? True.

I have to say I ditto what Amy said. I haven't read Ender's Game yet, but it is on my list!! I just have to finish the book Boyfriend and I are reading first.
I think we should be friends based on this list...

I also randomly burst into They Might Be Giants a la "The sun is a mass of incandescent gas a gigantic nuclear furnace..." and I can do a demonstration on the fly about where pi comes from. Nerd? Yes, thank you very much. That's why we're friends.

Also...Ice Man? Yes, please. Totally worth all 6 viewings of X-Men!

I beat two of my husband's Playstation games before he could even play them. I dressed up for three of the Harry Potter movies. I wish I was super sleuth Veronica Mars.
