You know you're a geek when... Can't Post

I've done all of these (and more ;)

You can't walk through the grocery store's vegetable section without stuffing some carrots in your pocket.

You hear the seagulls in the parking lot and have to fight the urge to head West.

You walk alongside a corn field and want to take off running through it! (It Hurts! Those leaf edges are sharp!)

It's September 21st and you're at the hospital being wheeled down the hall to be knocked out for a standard checkup procedure *ahem* and you announce, "Today is the 80th anniversary of the publication of The Hobbit." *looks around for reaction*
"What?"
*repeats*
"Really?! Today?!"
"Yep. It started out as a bedtime story Tolkien told to his kids."
"Wow. I didn't know that."
[Another attendant] "That is so cool!"
And later, when I was waking up in recovery, my daughter told me I said, "Hi" then "I want some ice cream."

What are your geeky moments?

See now I call that being a NERD [In reply to] Can't Post

Nerd vs Geek..... Geek for me gets a tech aspect in there somewhere. Nerds are hyper involved in various pursuits.

One time [In reply to] Can't Post

when I was preparing for surgery a TORN board member told me to think of something happy when I was going under and I'd continue with that thought when I woke up. It didn't work, but I did go under thinking of the Shire. Smile

How are you today?

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

You're picking freesias in your garden, [In reply to] Can't Post

and you say to your companion, "My cat's name was originally 'Freesia', but it's too hard to say several times a day, so we changed it. The cat shelter I got her from named all their girl cats with flower names, like all little Hobbit girls have flower names, you know?"
Blank look says, "What a geek."
