King of the Nerds
One of my goals, not a resolution, is to blog more. I find it helps my brain function and makes me happy. Also, I actually process thoughts better through writing. I had a friend comment that when I write, I come across far more organized and "put together" than I do in person. She was soooooo right. So, I am sitting watching Doctor Who and thought, I should write a quick blog about something that has been on my mind! Well, I have a lot of things on my mind. This is why I come across SOOOO scattered. Well, anyways, today's topic shall be the new television program "King of the Nerds."
One day, I shall blog about the difference about nerds, geeks, dweebs and such. But, not today. Most of you know that I married a nerd. An IT guy that was giddy as a school girl when he bought his Dungeons and Dragons Red Box. The man who is a walking encyclopedia of Marvel Comics. The man that loved Abe Sapian before the movie "Hellboy" came out. I could go on and on. While watching "Big Bang Theory" last night, TBS aired another commercial for "King of the Nerds." It is a reality show that puts "nerds" into a competition against each other to find out who is the biggest King of the Nerds. The contestants could all play cameos on BBT. But, we are afraid that it is just going to turn into a laugh at the nerds fest.
Some people are far more vocal about their dislike. We have a friend who really went off on the subject. Nerd is the new cool. Those of us who wear the "nerd" title wear it proudly. I am a "newbie nerd." I have a lot of catching up to do. There are a lot of people that think just because you think Batman is cool and you have watched the 9th, 10th and 11th Doctors, they are a nerd. Alas, no. It takes far more than that. Going to Comic Cons don't make you a nerd. However, walking up to a no so well known actor or a comic book artist and going COMPLETELY fan-girl, that probably makes you a nerd.
Another trend that has developed is the "sexy nerd girl." There are some of the girls that really know there stuff and they are really sexy. But, just throwing on some nerdy glasses and a Star Wars shirt does not make you a nerd. There is currently a blond little thing that has amused my husband immensely. She has a few geeky tattoos and strips. She just doesn't get why people don't think she is sexy. Well, to start with, her tattoos are all scattered around and it bugs us. Seriously, if you are getting tattoos in a central area, they should work together.
Well, it's just about time to head out to pick Jerry up from work. So, I better wrap this up. Good night all. And, may the Tardis one day land in your back yard.
