Things I Love Thursday | Geekery

I have a confession. I am a geek. Or possibly a nerd.

What’s the difference? According to the dictionary, not much.

Geek: A person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest

Nerd: An intelligent, single-minded expert in a particular technical discipline or profession

If you ask me (and I know you didn’t, but here you are on my blog, so I’m going to give it to you), you can differentiate the two by fandom. Nerds are sci-fi, geeks are fantasy. Although I would fall more heavily into the geek category, I am also quite a nerd.

For today’s Things I Love Thursday, we celebrate all things geeky and nerdy. Come along with me, socially awkward friends. This one is going to be fun.

1) Introvert Doodle

I am a a pretty shy and quiet person, and especially in my business as a barber in a loud and over-the-top barbershop, I often worry that people think I’m antisocial. And maybe I am on occasion, but this nails it for me.

2) Edward Scissorhands My Little Pony

I grew up on My Little Pony, and still have a herd of them that Baby Bear plays with all the time. They are falling apart a bit though, being perhaps a quarter century old. Perhaps they need a makeover.

3) Dr. Hoo Owl T-Shirt

I am an owl obsessed girl. Also, geek obsessed. This Dr. Who Owl T-Shirt needs to be in my collection. And the color is perfect. Done.

4) CSS Colors

Color names make me happy. Did you know that you can input certain color names into your CSS code instead of hex codes? Yep, you can totally do that. So I think I’m going to do some of that. Cool beans.

Now you can sleep your way to being a for real Landshark. Damn this thing looks comfy.

6) Wolves Never Cry T-Shirt

Papa Bear loves wolves to the point that he gets choked up when he sees them on the Discovery Channel being all majestic in their natural habitat. He is a geek boy to the extreme. I really need to buy this for him.

7) Ermahgerd Animals

Since the first time Baby Bear saw this meme, and these two animals in particular, she cannot get enough, to the point that she begs me to “say the stick thing” and “say the penguin thing” all the damn time. I get it. I cannot stop laughing at these two.

8) Squishable Cthulhu

Actual website quote: “Yes, there’s nothing like a horrific Elder God to snuggle with. That tentacled face and freakish wings at which humans have quailed since the dawn of time is perfect for scaring away monsters under the bed and cuddling up to during a horror movie. Those are tentacles of looooove, people. And we promise he shall not rend your entrails yea unto to the bowels of the earth.”

9) I’m So Adjective T-Shirt

I’m a grammar nerd, big time. If I could, I would walk through life with a red pen.

10) A Pictorial Guide to Avoiding Camera Loss

I live in fear of losing my camera. I really need to steal this idea. And boy am I crushing out hard on this fellow.
