Yeah man, she's not kidding. I'm on one warning already.
Hahaha I have no doubt she'll do it.
I cringe everytime I hear my brother say 'lol' Yes, indeed, he says it alot. I blame WoW!!
It's sad when an acronym becomes a substitute for real laughter...
Sad? I would say silly. In all honesty if you're not actually luaghing then it really was not funny.
laughter is not a just a reward for a good joke.
Laughter is universal and lifts the mood of those who hear it. It is a gift to loved ones.
the word 'lol' does not triger the same inate response.
I think it is a shame aswell.
... You think up jokes like this:
Oh, they've already released the title of the 8th Harry Potter book: Harry Potter and the Army of Darkness.
Punchline: "This... is my BROOMSTICK!"
This amuses me, yet at the same time half-fills me with shame.
Oh dear, that's hilarious...
I may use that one on my friend who loves Army of Darkness but hates "Harry Potter" and fry his brain with the dichotomy.
Be seeing you,
You go to three different Big W stores (Chermie, Stafford and finally the City) in order to track down a pair of Wonder Woman pyjamas in your size! Was sooooo excited when I found them, I very nearly *squee*ed audibly (those present at my discovery of the Classic Leia Galactic Hero will know what that sounds like). Hooray for Geeky pyjamas!!
I also bought Wonder Woman underwear....
I am such a geek....
You're so adorable Abi
I actually thought of you when I saw those jarmies LC
You talked your kid into wanting the moon landing pj's over the frog ones he actually wanted.
This could come under 'you know you're a bored geek when...' but nonetheless...
You know you're a geek when you're restocking the pencils at work, and on top of the box is a triangular piece of foam. You then proceed to wrap rubber bands around two corners of the foam triangle and then draw on big eyes and a nose. The product? Yoda.
I left him there for the ladies to laugh at I doubt they'll know who he is
Oh and I bought a Wonder Woman t shirt at JJ's
YKYAG the moment you realise that you have the potential to construct binary sequences in your knitting.
You feel the overwhelming desire to get down on your hands and knees and worship your new 24" widescreen, sitting side by side with a 19" normal.
I really, really do!
...when the boards go down, your next port of call is the Bureau of Meterology and NASA websites.
your girlfriend calls you a geek but she loves you anyway & you don't mind
but being a geek IS a good thing
QFT Even better now that the Adelaide site has got a wind doppler radar. YKYAGW you get excited when those 95kmh gusts trip the Nyquist limit
.... when you want a t-shirt that says 'You say geek, like it's a bad thing'
quote courtesy of Summer from the Slice of Sci-Fi podcast.
You seek out fellow geeks at your place of employment (or not employment )
You then plan with said Geek, to make 'Geek Pride' badges
Brisbane's too. Was interesting watching that mini-cyclone we had the other week on doppler.
You're explaining the expansion dynamics of the universe.
...or is that on the verge of Nerdy?
Hmm, I could be in a hell of a lot of trouble then
You Know You're A Tragic 80s Geek When...
You spend the better part of a month umm... acquiring "Automan".
Be seeing you,
You Know you're a geek when
you remember "Talk like a Pirate Day"
YKYAGW in the space of a minute you:
-- decide the world is playing the wrong audio track because you've run into several people speaking a language other than english;
-- quote the Aliens adage, "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen - found em" upon finding your elusive door pass; and
-- hear Yoda in your head telling you not to judge the very short man who just walked past by his size...
