... has marriage made me more of a geek?

This is the month of our second wedding anniversary! Yay!
[if you're new and you want to read about it all, you can start here]

... so ... I noticed that someone in Amherst, New Hampshire searching for "episode family guy stewie walks away like david banner" was pointed to an old post of mine, which prompted me to revisit & reread it, and retake the Nerd? Geek? or Dork? quiz that was part of the post.

Here's the result:

Sept 2006 Sept 2008
"pure nerd" "joe normal"
52% Nerd 48% Nerd
26% Geek 48% Geek
30% Dork 30% Dork

Heh. I musta still been a blushing bride when I first took the test. Since then, my dorkiness has stayed the same, my nerdiness dropped a little but wow I've almost doubled my geekiness!! But that makes me now a joe normal as opposed to a pure nerd?
You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.

Ummm.... yay?

firstly - geek, nerd, dork, whatever - I can't tell you the difference between the three - the supposed definitions are provided at the end of the quiz... so go try it out, then tell me your result and if you agree, k?

secondly - I don't deny the the geek/nerd/dork factor... especially when finding this blast-from-the-past over at Elisette's had me very very amused [although I'm sure us Zetans did a MUCH better job than this dude,,, but he's my bretheren so I won't point out how his pants seemed to be falling down, and how out of breath he was...] [hey see what I did there? I put into practice a rhetorical device called Apophasis / Apophesis: Mentioning something by saying that you won't mention it] [ugh, that further confirms the geekiness, yes?]

Play on, but beware the phlogiston my little one, and of the molality be wary ;)

=[HELP!! can anyone tell me why the table is appearing so far down the page??]=


  1. lynne oh lynne. first, thanks for dropping by my blog. i was curious who is this person who rant about having to eat frozen durians.. i'm sorry if my spymama's food journey made you drool. think about it, if you do drool, that doesn't make you much of a nerd cos nerds probably can control their food cravings with their control panel somewhere, so rest assured, you are very much like all of us here.

    if it makes you feel better perhaps you can treat it as eating pure Du**an ice cream.. sorry about rubbing more salt to your wound.. Come home to your hometown (i gather is either Malaysia or Singapore? Perhaps more Malaysia cos i spotted Chet Det) more often and enjoy all you can in a Du**an orchard and living off it for a day.

  2. nice post...
    might be people must consider to marriage lol

    the success

  3. Hi Lynne, Glad to meet you (again). Thanks for posting on my blog. Hope we "see" each other from time to time!

  4. Good Morning Lynne,

    Many thanks for your comments at thefoolonthehill. Much appreciated.

    Regarding your query about the drop of the Table and the gap it causes at this particular Post - methinks it has something to do with the script. It is colliding with the sidebar widget script that is adjacent to it. I've seen that happen before on my previous BLog.



Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?
