spt - embrace your geekness



did you know that today, july 13th, is "embrace your geekness" day?

according to what i've found on the internet:

A geek is an individual who is highly intelligent (brainy) and technically oriented. They are most often associated with the computer, and computer systems world. A geek is usually formal, studious and into his technical world, often to the exclusion of all else. A geek is closely related to a "Nerd". A nerd however, may or may not possess technical expertise.

Some people view the term "Geek" with a negative connotation. Are they jealous of your knowledge and skills, perhaps? We certainly think so.

Enjoy Embrace Your Geekness Day to the fullest. Spend plenty of time with your computer. Talk computer lingo and jargon. If you are a geek, stand tall and proud. Isn't it great to be so brilliant and gifted!?


do you have a "geekness" about you? we're all together in this great big blogosphere, so i imagine we've all mastered the basics of desktop publishing. do you have a secret fascination with programming? were you in line last week for a new iphone? do you actually know what gigs and pixels and java script are?

or do you love a geek? is there someone you can go to when your beloved PC is misbehaving?

embrace your geek! make it a point to learn one new computer phrase this weekend. share a tip you've mastered. update your blog, if nothing else!!

Okay...here's a taste of how geeky I am. I have been trying to find a good reason to blog about my geekiness. I am so excited for this one!

Oh, Lelly! Like Chloe I feel like this SPT is JUST FOR ME!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My mind is racing already...wow...there is SO much geek inside of me.

I'll wager right now that after this SPT I'll be crowned the biggest geek out there!

Ha! I'm so glad I checked the SPT this week. My brothers were just explaining to me the difference between a nerd and a geek the other day. Can't wait!

Rebekah said...

lelly said...

if you feel you are more of a "nerd," rebekah, then i say "go for it!"

Oh I am so dying to do this challenge! My husband constantly talks about my "sewing geek" friends and my "scrapbooking geek" friends and my "blogging geek" friends, LOL! Mine will be late because I am not home, but I am doing it anyway! Great challenge!
