Keeping My Geek Card

Hello.  My name is Stephanie and I'm a geek.

Actually, I don't know if you can classify me as such.

Reasons I don't get to keep my geek card:

~I don't know how to code or anything like that.
~I'm good with a computer, but only to a certain extent.
~I physically cannot make the "Live long and prosper" sign.
~I don't get Firefly. I'm trying. But it's not grabbing me.
~I've never seen an episode of BBC's Sherlock, CBS' The Big Bang Theory, and most of Doctor Who.
~I can't identify most of the superhero alphabet, the Star Wars alphabet is hit and miss, and the Sci-Fi alphabet isn't so hot either.
~I've never watched the animated Clone Wars series.
~I've never seen the original Star Trek series, the final episode of ST: TNG, most if any of DS9.

Reasons I get to keep my geek card:

~I'm almost through the first season of Doctor Who (2005 season, not the 1970s)
~I know the Ewok's name is Wicket.
~I don't buy George Lucas' explanation for Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan becoming Alec Guiness' Obi-Wan in a mere 16 years
~I miss Frank Oz.
~I have the Star Trek: The Next Generation theme on a CD in my car.
~I still have all my old CDs despite having all sorts of digital music players.
~Greedo didn't shoot first. Han didn't give him the chance. (Edited to add that one. :D)

    1. Aw, thanks, David! Appreciate it! Thanks for coming by. It's much appreciated.

  3. I am officially a geek. I blame my husband. (even though he only found my closet geek and brought it out to play.)

    1. LOL. Finding the closet geek is important. Your kids will be better off for it. :D Thanks for coming by tonight!

  4. I love being a geek. This is a great post.
