emocomputerjock:

Nerdy guys are the new hotness.

hot nerdy guys?

I'm not responding, because someone will post a picture of Thom Yorke and things will go downhill.

This just in:

Nerdy girls are back to being hot.


Let's hope that valuing character and intelligence is more than a fad. I am sick of the bimbo worship.

samimgreen: hence the reason slaves make the best masters... always...

Well, I am of the opinion that one should always be a slave before becoming a master.

Poor Fred. He's doing just about everything wrong. First off, he makes the
near-fatal error of getting way too technical. This, coupled with the
ultra-macho sentence structures is gonna end up leaving Fred high and very
dry. That technical buzzword approach might come up with some tail in
alt.power.tools or alt.farm.equipment, but alt.sewing? Forget it. Prepare
yourself for another long, lonely night by the Singer, perfecting what
history will call the "right hand occupied stitch"

Now, on to specific errors:

[1] & [2]: Asking a question and then answering it yourself. Not only is
this passive-aggressive behavior of the worst sort, it's a real turn-off as
well. Oh yeah, and nix the smiley. A post from a guy in alt.sewing is by
definition a smiley.

[3]. You were on the right track here, dropping in a little French, but you
introduce it so unsubtly that we really feel like puking. Next time, try "My
older sister points out that this is a haute couture technique. Thanks, sis.
I washed and folded your clothes, BTW. Kiss, kiss." Note how much better
this is. Not only do we introduce the character of the older female sibling,
but we also imply incest. The reader is of course free to infer
tongue-action, if that be her thang.

[4]. Nothing sucks the life from a post like a typo.

[5]. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Here then, is the revised post:


> Growing up in a house with four older sisters can be pretty hard on a guy
> (Note how we generate sympathy *and* empathy for the author here, *and*
> sneak in the phrase 'hard on'. Always thinking) I used to hate all the
> teasing I would get at the schoolyard, but now that I am older I see
> things through very different eyes (though they remain steely blue). I
> realize that the countless hours I spent learning to sew while the other
> boys were in the Little League was not for naught, but rather. . .

Hope this helps.

Booooo that :( Sorry you're stuck there. That's no place to be during a boobie thread :/


this is true. and i am equally sad. however, i did just come from the 'Puppy with model airplane wheels for front legs' thread and it made me sufficiently happy for the time being.

toejam: mctom: Hey, SarahL!

Just came in to register my appreciation for nerd girls, especially band geeks. When I was in high school, we had an instrument room above the band/choir room, and no one ever went up there after zero period. Well, almost no one!

/lot of new experiences up there

Nothing like watching a beautiful woman play the shiat out of a cello.


No love for choir geeks? We have the capacity to hit some pretty high notes and the advantage of being able to open our jaws pretty wide. :P

Megsabelle: overlord_mike: territ:

Great, now I have that "Detachable Penis" song stuck in my head.

i love that song

I woke up this morning with a bad hangover
And my penis was missing again.
This happens all the time.
It's detachable.

This comes in handy a lot of the time.
I can leave it home, when I think
it's gonna get me in trouble,
or I can rent it out, when I don't need it.
But now and then I go to a party, get drunk,
and the next morning I can't for the life of me
remember what I did with it.
First I looked around my apartment, and I couldn't find it.
So I called up the place where the party was,
they hadn't seen it either.
I asked them to check the medicine cabinet
'cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes
But not this time.
So I told them if it pops up to let me know.
I called a few people who were at the party,
but they were no help either.
I was starting to get desperate.
I really don't like being without my penis for too long.
It makes me feel like less of a man,
and I really hate having to sit down
every time I take a leak.
After a few hours of searching the house,
and calling everyone I could think of,
I was starting to get very depressed,
so I went to the Kiev, and ate breakfast.
Then, as I walked down Second Avenue
towards St. Mark's Place,
where all those people sell used books
and other junk on the street,
I saw my penis lying on a blanket
next to a broken toaster oven.
Some guy was selling it.
I had to buy it off him.
He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I
talked him down to seventeen.
I took it home, washed it off,
and put it back on. I was happy again. Complete.
People sometimes tell me I should get
it permanently attached,
but I don't know.
Even though sometimes it's a pain in the ass,
I like having a detachable penis.


Woohoo!

And here is the video

SarahL I guess you've re-proven today that any woman (or alt) is just a few well-chosen keystrokes away from having an internet fan club. Congratulations! You may now take your pick of the following prizes:

Whats good to do in New Orleans, besides the obvious?

I'm here for a business trip for the week and I'm trying to find out some stuff to do besides the norm


I've always loved the tours and the museums. Spend some time looking at the artists in Jackson Square, have lunch in Margaritaville, and get your fortune told by one of the freaky fortune tellers [cause its always amusing]. Take a peek inside the St. Louis cathedral. Riverboat ride is enjoyable. You have to eat beginets and get a cup of cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde. If you're really not into crowds you can always drive up plantation row; they've got a lot of really cool historical sites and tours you can take. Just don't go to the Myrtles Plantation. The tour is a complete rip off.

Need to say, the first time I heard this song was right after it came out. CFNY radio Toronto played the whole thing, uncut, at rush hour while I was driving home from work, going through the city on the highway. They played the thing for weeks uncut. Nearly smashed the car up that first time, though. I love my free country.

I don't have the patience or desire to be an alt. Most of this is in good fun, some people I seriously consider friends, and others I just enjoy goofing off with. The status of my nerd/geek/dork level is up for debate. As is the level of hotness I may or may not exude. In real life, I'm really rather bookish and almost painfully shy. Just like with everyone, the internet allows for easier socializing.
