= Friend MFEO's, am I right??
Tonight I wanted to let all the inner nerds out there have a communal moment in the sun. Here is a recap of my more special adolescent fancies, so that some of you can feel not-so-nerdy and some of you who think you're too cool for school can feel even MORE cool than ever (though I bet you know more about the Kardashians than B or I ever will- LAME.):
My American girl doll (Samantha) occupied a prominent place in my room til probably... ninth grade.
I played the flute in middle school. I think I only made it as high as 3rd chair.
I never went to detention once in my entire 13 years of public school.
During a cross-country road trip with my cousins I prepared and presented an oral report on Adam-Ondi-Ahman. They threatened to maroon me.
For several tween years my favorite movie was The Net with Sandra Bullock, and I cherished the dream of being a computer hacker who spent her days chatting with friends whom she knew only by their edgy screen names and avatars.
Thanks to the brothers, I am fully versed in the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings universes. I held my own in a group of boys last night who were discussing lore, out-factoiding and out-quoting them all! Owning it.
And, the nerdishness continues into the present day. For example,
I have a blog.
I have a Master's degree in Art History.
