FACT: I'm kind of a #nerd


I pretty much died when I saw this (see more tv shows here).  It's just so much awesome.  I really wish I could have a direwolf as a pet.   I don't think my direwolf would appreciate my small studio apartment in the city.

You guys I'm kind of realizing how much of a nerd I am.  I pretty much did a little dance in my chair when the Guild came back with new episodes, I really have the urge to play Halo right now and I'm blowing through Dr. Who on Netflix.  Nerd for life!

My co-workers think I'm a nerd due to my love of all things social media.  They know I love blogging and that I went to Vegas to meet up with a bunch of bloggers.  I openly talk about it.  I tried to explain what foursquare is but I just got blank stares.  They also had no idea what I was talking about when I said I was featured blogger on 20sb.  I mean these are important things folks!

How do people in your life react to your social media usage?

  1. I think I might have to fight you for the #nerd crown. My boss actually told me today that he could have used me in a production meeting because they were all geeks and he had no idea what they were talking about.

    That Game of Thronies pic is epic.

    I also told all my friends/family that I was Featured Blogger and they gave me blank stares. That was the highlight of my YEAR! EXCUSE ME!!!

  3. Ha, if you worked with the younger set, they'd get the social media thing. But working with predominantly young people usually means SHITTY PAY; they entice you with a "casual" environment, but you end up broke as a joke.

  5. My co-workers saw the water bottle I brought back from the 20sb summit and I got the whole, "...you blog?" thing and it was uncomfortable. My young friends don't even get foursquare and I get shifty eyes every time I yell, "YES. MAYOR BITCHES."

    Maybe I'm overly enthusiastic.

  6. Pretty much the same. People just have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about when I tell them about my internet world. Most people don't seem to understand it. But I love all the same. :)

  7. Social media usage is part of my job description. So, no strange looks at work. Family and friends however don't seem to get exactly what I do. Maybe that's just for the best. :)

  9. @Lor - One of my friends is very supportive of my mayor quests even though she does not use foursqaure. I would totally rock that water bottle.

    @Kathy - Good thing we have each other right?

    @Laurens - Sometimes it probably is for the best.

    @Mila - Have you read the books?
