My name is Kurt Wagner, but in the Munich circus, I was known as... GEEK
I saw X-Men 2 Saturday with M and Steve. I liked it MUCH better than the first movie. Characters were better fleshed-out, and I'm all geeked-out and happy over Nightcrawler. I'm hoping Beast and Gambit make it into the next one. Mmm. Beast and Gambit.

K. So I'm a comic book geek. And I like role-playing games (though I haven't played on in years). So sue me.

I'm also a computer geek. I can make people's eyes glaze over in two minutes or less (up from last year's five-- woohoo!). In comments yesterday, I made a lame joke about loopback IP addressing to the date port and translated a snippet of Midsummer into 13375|>34|<. When the hell did this happen? I mean, yeah, I always aspired to geekdom, but I've no clue when any of it actually happened.

Of course, I've probably been wearing the ruby slippers all along* and just didn't know it. *clickclickclick*

I'm also an English geek. I've learned not to read books or periodicals with a pen in my hand. I edit without thinking twice about it. Don't get me going about the poor, underappreciated subjunctive tense. Really.

And I'm a theatre fag geek, too. And a business/marketing geek. And a PBS geek. And a song-lyric geek.

I'm probably a few other forms of geek as well.

Someone please tell me that geek is sexy. Otherwise, I'm heading to the basement with my Monster Manual and D20s, ne'er to be heard from again.

-----------------

I got the coolest pirate book yesterday as a gift! It has maps, and appendices, and a glossary, and illustrations, and an index... OK, I think my geekocity is already established pretty firmly here ;)

I love pirates. In reality, their behaviours run almost completely contrary to my beliefs of integrity and honesty. But damned if I don't find 'em sexy anyway.

So, yeah, I'm a good-girl geek with a pirate fetish.

Rowrrrrrr, matey.

------------------

There's no real purpose to this post. I'm a geek who saw a movie and got a cool book.

Evidently, I'm not a geek of succinctity (it's a word; I said so).

Tomorrow I may be an actress, or lost soul, or a zany punster. Who knows. I'll enjoy my geekability while I can.

Maybe I'll post a picture with no purpose later.

There's no place like $HOME. Or %USERPROFILE%, on Windows.

(Of course, "There's no place like %USERPROFILE% doesn't have quite the same ring to it...)

(of course, I suppose you could always set HOME=%USERPROFILE%, but that's really just covering up the fact that there's no place like $HOME. :P)

Geek *is* sexy! But you're welcome to head to the basement, as long as you let me come along. ;)

Apparently, during one of the Cerebro scenes, there were supposed to be two not-blurry scenes of mutants.

One of Gambit behind bars somewhere, doing something with his powers, and one of Beast turning blue and furry.

Apparently (though I missed it at the time), on one of the computers somewhere, it lists Gambit's real name, along with several other mutants.

Yep, when Mystique is going through Stryker's computer, Remy's name is clearly seen, as are a few others. I didn't catch any non-blurry red Cerebro mutanty stuff though.

Yes, geek is sexy. What sort of geek toys have you got in that basement? ;-)

Hee. Unfortunately, nothing!

But I could probably still get wireless access from there with my laptop :)

Beast was in this one.
Remember when Mystique seduced the guard?
The guy on TV was "Dr. Hank McCoy"
AKA Beast.

Gambit's name ("Remy Lebeau") is onscreen when Mystique is hacking Stryker's computer. As are a bunch of other names. It's said that one of the people Mystique morphs into in the scene when she changes uncontrollably is Gambit.

Yes. I am a geek.
ldy From: ldy Date: May 6th, 2003 11:18 am (UTC) (permalink)
Now that you mention it, I do remember hearing Hank McCoy, but promptly forgot about it. How could I forget THAT?!

Remy went right past me. I'm surprised!

I will have to see it again (oh, darn!) and watch the morph scene more closely :D

Hooray for geeks!

A little late, since lots of comments already say it, but geeks (especially you) are sexy.
