I go to lengths so I don't look like one, but i'm still a geek no matter what I do.
I play Magic: The Gathering and went to the Rise of the Eldrazi prerelease tournament last Sunday and I had a major blast. I play competitively at times. But I don't go to events unless I spritz some cologne on. Unfortunately a moshpit of male geeks doesn't really bode well to the olfactory. I really like to be one of the very few guys in a fresh shirt and smelling bathed.
Sometimes in my dreams I play DOTA and formulate my spell combination for Kalel the Invoker. And I've stopped playing over a year ago.
I like Glee, so I must be a gleek too. I've done song arrangements and mash ups 5 years before Glee came on. "Mash up" was simply called a fancy medley before it got a fancy monicker. Michael Jackson, Jamiroquai, Oasis, Jason Mraz, etc. I always assign myself the easy baritone spot, of course.
I became a finalist in the Philippine Web Awards back when I was in 7th grade. Websites + scrawny kid + thick glasses = let's forget about that phase.
I shaved my head, ditched my finger-thick eyeglasses for contacts and went to the gym to look cool but I had to concede. Everyone knew that I was a geek; I can't believe it took me longer to accept my nerdness than my faggotry. Possibly because the latter is what got me laid.
I'm a faerie who was kicked out from a land called Bohemia. I'm an artist living an ironically prosaic existence and some would call it selling out. Well some can go fuck themselves.
I have a soft spot for all things pretty - music, art, the written word. And I don't like drama. Drama thrives in deep water so I prefer to write shallow. That, or I'm incapable of otherwise.
