I always though I was a geek through and through. However, there were pieces missing from geek-life. For example, I never saw The Empire Strikes Back in the theater (in fact, I saw Return of the Jedi without ever seeing ESB). Also, several teenage years went by where I did not read any science fiction at all, let alone on girl-less weekend nights.
So it should have come as no surprise when, a few weeks ago, I was informed (by Scott and JP) that I was not born a geek. What?!? Apparently, when I was youger I was just a dweeb who aspired to become a geek. Talk about an intervention. Yet somehow, that makes sense. In fact, my life seems to have a purpose now. Thanks, Scott and JP!
