My day reminds me of Arthur Dent's transient existence in Mostly Harmless: Since 9:30 this morning I have been/will be riding the bus from place to place, from the dentist to my IT class to the library to some local restaurant where I plan to grab dinner to youth group tonight and finally back home around 9:30 PM.
Time for a list of all the things that make me rather geeky:
I build and play with Lego. I work with computers. I am a Trekkie. I have (at last count) 107 Star Trek books. I am also fairly obsessed with the old (60s-80s era) Marvel comics. I drink Mountain Dew when I can get it. I wave my hand at automatic doors when nobody is looking. I wore a Starfleet Commander's uniform for two Halloweens in a row. I am taking an IT Tech class, and am learning binary and hex. I am in the process of making up an alien alphabet. I am somewhat obsessed with the number 42. I have memorized Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and a few of the MPFC eps. I watch the Discovery and Sci-Fi channels more than any others. My pet of choice is a hairless rat.
That is the word I have chosen for today's blog entry. Now, for the subject: Spork-wielding llama pirates. Ha! I'm actually kidding there. I fail to understand the obsession with llamas, penguins, sporks, etc. Pirates, I can understand.
