I am such a geek. Seriously, today in particular, I am overwhelmed with the extent of my geekiness. Luckily, there was a split in the space time continuum and my particular particles got sucked into the alternative universe where being a geek is so tres chic.
(Hey! I did a little rhyme there! See that? I’m a creative geek.)
Here’s the latest things that make my pocket protectors shudder with pleasure me so very cool:
- I bought the new iPhone. When I already have an iPhone. I squee’ed so hard when it came out it pretty much cemented my geekdom for the next millennium. And, I got the discount pricing even though I already am an AT&T customer, because I was due for my bi-yearly phone upgrade. Why did I buy an iPhone? Um, improved VGA video recording camera? Push notification? Photo and video geotagging? Digital compass? Improved battery life? Faster downloads and web browsing? Not to mention I still have the first generation, so no 3G for me yet. I’d like some REAL (assisted) GPS, thankyouverymuch. Call me spoiled, call me demanding…yes I am.
- This is my new favorite blog. It makes me feel very, very smart. Mostly, because I am. But it helps me be more smart. Er. Smarter.
- Speaking of smart, this is my new favorite show. It’s full of very smart people doing very cool things. Plus, they’re hot. In fact, I’ve decided my ideal woman is a cross between Emily Deschanel as Temperance Brennan and Sandra Bullock. Quirky yet intelligent. Rowwrrr.
- I’m having heart palpitations knowing that Wil Wheaton is in Portland. Yes, Wil Wheaton. OMG I KNOW! Because of course all of Portland is palpitating right along with me. Just check out Rick Turoczy’s fanboi blog post about him! Everyone from KGW’s Live at 7 to OSBridge is clamoring for him to make an appearance so the legions of the pdx tech community can bask in the presence of the godfather of geekhood.
