I are geek, here me roar... but you will continue to ignore.

I was just minding my own business when I receive a comment that Iíve been tagged. Not by a meme, but by a damn test. Thatís right, not a quiz, a test! And not just any test, NOOOOOooooooooo, a geek test. Seems Bitterroot of Friction and Harmony (I donít care what he says, I still think thatís a sex reference. He should have just named it Latex and Release.), well he tagged me because ďThese games you keep finding and getting me stuck on are indicative of your geekdom.Ē Hey, itís not my fault I want others to waste time like I do.

With as much malice he could muster he decided I needed to take this test so he could shatter our self-images. Sure he could say that he wanted to compare geekiness in the blogoverse, but really he wanted to bring our worlds down around us. I guess I could have not taken the test, but I wanted to prove that I am not a geek.

Apparently I was wrong


Okay, in retrospect I guess I should have known this was going bad when my lovely wife, Ktreva (whom I met online before I met her in person) was laughing and giggling at the questions. When I wanted a second opinion because I thought a question didnít apply, she would be quick to point out that they did. Such as Iím a re-enactor, even though Iíve technically never been in the SCA and donít really like them, Iíve been at many functions that they have been to and in a SCA like group. We used real swords thank you! No rattan furniture swords for us! But it asked if Iíve ever worked at a RenFair. Quickly I answered no, I have not, I may have gone dressed up and been confused as someone that worked there, but technically I didnít actually work at the RenFair. Then she pointed out that when I was with Clan Chattan we were hired to work at smaller local RenFairs. Yea, thatís my wife for me.

So there you have it, I are geek. Especially since Ktreva kept me honest.

Now excuse me while I go read my RPG books and worship my shrine to Steve Jackson and his generic universal role-playing system.

Iím not technically tagging anyone, just like I technically wasnít in the SCA, but I would like to see Shadoglare of Refractional Darkness, Wes of Bodhran Roll, Please! And Littlejoe of Littlejoeís Soapbox (whom will come out of hibernation just for this) take this test.

You should have asked me... I'd have told you that you were indeed a geek.

Not geek enough to avoid going to Hooters with you, however.

Poor Contagion, it must suck to be such an Uber-geek.

I was really scared at how many boxes I thought I was checking, but it only came out to: 11.04536%.

Thank God.

ROFL - I are not as geeky as Contagion is!

For a whole few minutes there, I thought *I* was the uber-geek @ 46.35108%!


But for what it's worth - I met Mrs. Who online too... Narf! :)

Wow, not only am I impressed. I now understand how you can be on those online games for so long.

It all makes sense now.

Unbelievable how many geeks are in the bad example family!

Amateur: 58.38264% for me.

Crap, the only person I've met who scored higher than me did so because she got bonus points for being a girl geek. Maybe I should have worn a dress...
