Hey I'm a nerd, hell in my profile I'm holding an icesicle like a freking sword.

/Also a snowboarder junky
//Sucks to live in Texas though >_


Holding an icesicle like a sword does not make you a nerd.

Delightfully Charming: overlord_mike: Delightfully Charming: overlord_mike:

both of you ladies got added points to your awesomeness to me

So how many bonus points have i built up with you, considering how much you've seen of me from the Epic Thread a few months back?

i haven't seen you very much, so not many points
and you still owe me a dirty story

but your still a hot sexy gal in my book

Not very much, eh? I recall send out about 6 or 7 different pics during that thread....

/I guess that's not really a whole lot is it?
//nevermind.
//And yes, i'm still aware of the dirty story i owe you.


That's okay, take your time. I'll read it as soon as you're ready...

haikupoet: I like geek girls. A lot. I knew a few seriously hot geek girls in college, as a matter of fact.

Unfortunately I'm an unemployed, unattractive reject whose only real virture is being a pretty good cook, and the last real programming I did involved pushing buttons around in the interface of a Lua program without actually changing anything significant.



here is some advice, weither you want it or not
stop whining, get a job, exercise, stop telling people your a loser, act like a winner

back to the hot nerd girl!

Daffydil: Don't feel badly, my score isn't very high either. I still like you.

I swear I played D&D in school, before the school board watched Tom Hanks great performance in Mazes & Monsters, and shut us down before we could kill ourselves (of course we just went renegade and played at the french horn dork's house). I can't believe I didn't score better on that.

/Thanks for being so understanding

Yet I still had to show someone else how to use it. What amazes me is that there are still people who manage to fark it up. Not everyone is a SQLr

Yes, I am a hererosexual opera nerd.

My bachelor party will consist of nine strippers dressed as Walkure singing the opening to Act III of Die Walkure.

Daffydil: emocomputerjock-None of the above, but decidedly male. And emo. And a computery nerd.

Like I said before, "Jim?"

my ex bf has his PhD in Aerospace Engineering...not so much emo, but computer nerd fer sure.


While I'm not Jim, I am a whiny bastard. Have been since as long as I can remember. I just don't want to encourage uses of teh googles, because I don't want the wife to belong to the internets on anything other than her terms ;)

Hell, I think I'd rather go to your bachelor party than what my idiot friends would throw together for my bachelorette party. Tehre would probably be male strippers involved... Male strippers are weird.

My very favorite nerd girl story was when I asked an extremely cute nerdette to prom. My friends at the time were trying to coerce me into asking out this pompom girl who was nice but I was not into , nor did I want to be, she was a bit of a whore. I had a couple of classes with the nerdette and she was sweet, so when she was walking by my locker I grabbed her by her hips, and lifted her over my head and asked her if she would go to prom with me. It worked really well. The end.

How did we end up on singing ability from a nerd girls thread?


www.nerdtests.com

I'm a little disappointed in my tech/computer score, but I guess that's what you get when you don't program all that much. I'm kind of impressed with the literary one, though.

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

The high notes part of that statement only holds true for 1st and 2nd (sometimes) sopranos.

/choir geek
//1st soprano
///and proud of it.

Mezzosoprano here so I have the slight advantage of being able to hit those high notes as well as those sexy low notes.

/don't count out the tenors either! :P

I'm jealous. I wish i had a complete range like you do.

Last time my range was tested my choir teacher said I had a three octave range. That was about five years ago. I think my voice has deepened a bit but I haven't lost the high notes yet. I really need to get back into choir but I'm so damn busy with school. I miss it so much.


Me too. I sing constantly all the time, but I know i've lost some of the range i had. I was tested at a 2 octave range, but i've noticed that i've had to strain a little to hit those extreme high notes lately, so i think i'm probably more of a 1.5 octave range now lol.

I've been in some choirs and I always loved it. However, I smoke which apparently isn't a good thing for your voice. Who knew? I figure I can shoot for the Tom Waits kind of thing.

Let me tell you a story....

My grandafather taught me how to fish as a boy. Whenever he would open his tackle box he would utter the phrase "a certain kind of bait attracts a certain type of fish." It was like a prayer to the god of fishing or something. When I got older, I was talking to him about my lack of success at attempting to woo a cartain girl, he said, in the same tone, "a certain kind of bait attracts a certain type of fish."

My grandfather got a million times cooler that day.

/I miss him
