Shades of Geek

While some friends and I were heading out of the office this afternoon, my friend Wendy was raving about a new application that was created by one of the tech guys. Wendy freely admits that she's a geek, she loves her comic books and everything. Needless to say, I've learned not to argue with her about certain things.

Anyways, I don't know how it got brought up but I made a comment about how the cast of Battlestar Galactica did the Top Ten List on Letterman the night before and I clapped a little when I saw the promo for it. I'm open about my love for BSG openly and freely, its a damn good show and I have no shame.

So, when I said that, Kerry called me a nerd. But Wendy defended my honor and said that I was a geek because the show is fantasy and not sci-fi - which is totally different. If I had that reaction to something involving Star Trek, then yes - I would be a nerd. Yes, we have learned to love these nuances about Wendy. The best part of that whole story, was that someone relatively new to our company, Rodrigo, was in the elevator with us. I bet watching 3 girls define the parameters of the social acceptance of geek vs nerd really made his day.

Anyways, here are the Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Watch This Season of BSG.
