I am interesting

At least according to the Devildog. We were bantering back and forth on one of his afternoons off of work. I teased him about something, and in the course of it all, there was commentary about life insurance benefit amounts for each of us. He replied that he probably wouldn't find anyone that was interesting to burn his food for him. Yes, to clarify, he said that I burn his food but I'm interesting.

I think this comment was in retaliation for the day prior. He was losing a game of Madden on PS2. He said something about resetting the game (in essence-cheating) because he wasn't doing well, and was losing players to injuries on every play. I looked at him and said I think it's a PEBCAC issue.

I was met with a "WTF?" face. He apparently hasn't heard this phrase before, and it's an offshoot of PEBKAC (which tech-inclined folks will probably understand).

So I let him sit on it a few seconds while I fought hard to keep my composure. Then I unleashed it. Problem Exists Between Controller And Chair.

He sort of smirked, shook his head and proclaimed me to be "such a geek." Which, I can't possibly be such a geek because I have too much ADD, misfired synapses, and can't wrap my brain around even a percentage of that stuff. I'm just smart enough to be dangerous...or useful. At least I'm interesting.

Geek.... Honey, what do you mean, you can't wrap your head around 'that stuff'? YOU do realize there is more than ONE type of geek in the world, do you not? And your vocabulary alone qualifies you for 'geek status', and the sad reality is, that outside of the feckless wonders of your world from this morning, YOU ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND AND KNOW THE MEANINGS OF THE WORDS YOU USE! You are a GEEK! :-D Welcome to the dark side! We have COOKIES! :-D

I knew that. Am I a geek?

Yes Mrs Soersdal, you border geekdom...just not entirely the same brand, because you're now a postpartum geek, and it's actually Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair dear. I will forgive you forever and ever because Giggles and Bug keep you incessantly brain drained. I've managed to reclaim a small percentage of the brain cells the spawn stole from me

Keep denying it to yourself hunny... "I am not a geek, I am not a geek"... it might come true... best of luck with it ;)... but interesting... that you most certainly be :D

I'm pretty sure "such a geek" is a proclamation of love in gaming circles.

I like to think of myself as a geek by osmosis. Whereas I'm not really all that into computers myself, I pick up a lot by watching/listening to Husband and Brother who form a whole new category of megageek. And yes, my kids are brain robbers LOL.
