What makes you nerdy?

My confession regarding listening to Lost podcats (2 total) gives me a nerd card.

How do you earn your nerd card?

Re: What makes you nerdy?

  • Because I enjoy doing taxes, and actually did it professionally for 6 years, except it was more of a hobby than it was for the money.

    Also experienced antenatal OCD.
    Feel free to ask me questions about my experience.
  • I google words I don't know and little factoids to learn more when things come up I'm curious about in casual conversation. 

     

    I also make spread sheets and checklists for EVERYTHING .

  • the fact that i can spend HOURS if i could researching movies, actors, movie quotes on IMDB all.day.long

    I googled are you a geek, took a test and only got 2%. I'm happy. My husband on the other hand, will get at least 50%.

  • I have a PhD in Medieval European History.  There's probably a picture of me next to "nerd" in the dictionary.

    Yeah I would be next to it, I think. I teach U.S. history, so I have hundreds of students who would confirm my nerdiness. I also come from a family of nerds (teachers). I always remind DH that he married a nerd.
  • I <3 Calculus and Differential Equations.  Love.

    I'm an engineer, married to another engineer.  When we moved into our first place together, we drew the apartment into AutoCAD, drew the to-scale furniture in AutoCAD, and rearranged the rooms in AutoCAD before moving in.

    In the pictures of me in our apartment, the day we got engaged, there is a Harry Potter poster hung up on the wall.  In our living room.  I got the poster when I waited in line at midnight for the last book.  Neeeerd :)

    We stamped and signed our wedding seating arrangement and made it look like a Construction plan drawing.  We drew it ourselves in AutoCAD, and printed it on our own large format plotter.

    I could go on and on and on...

  • I'm a software engineer and so is my husband. We talk about work to each other and can understand what the other is talking about. He founded an open source project and I plan the developers conferences, organize our software releases, and sys admin the server. Maybe we are more geeks than nerds ;) 
  • In highschool, I had a periodic table hung up next to my bed. Now I don't, and I'm kind of sad. I love period tables.

  • I earned my Nerd Card big time last night.  I walked into our Borders and asked for Supernatural books.  Yes that's right books based off the Supernatural series on TV.  The best part the guy who helped was just as nerdy as me and kept going on and on about Smallville and I think he was flirting with me because when he went to walk away he touched my elbow and said good bye...

  • I really like Algebra...I generally suck at Math, but Algebra is so fun to me. I loved figuring out equations and what y equals. Nerd.

    I also love writing on the board/using the overhead when I teach...really, this is like a must at some times, but it's like every single thing I ever did when I was little and played "teacher", I get to do know. And I'm super nerdy about thinking that it's so cool every single time.

    - I balance my checkbook to the penny every month
    - I enjoy doing math equations (used to do extra exercises when I was in my pre-calc classes, etc for fun. heh)
    - I frequently talk user flows, technical specifications, etc for web sites. Including color colded graphs, visios, etc, etc.
    - I write technical requirements for above mentioned user flows. :-P

  • ooh, I scored medium 

    Somewhat nerdy. I mean face it, you are nerdier than about half the test takers
