Getting My Nerd On


What defines a nerd? To me it's someone who's so passionate about something they take any chance they can to obsess over it. Being a nerd is a good thing :)

Am I a nerd? You bet I am.

I've stayed up late for book and movie premiers.

I've dressed up like my favorite characters for Halloween and movie premiers.

I've even argued about the properties of a horcrux, the meaning behind the Harry Potter spells, and the timing in which they were used.

Oh yes, I'm a nerd. I even own this T-shirt

Twilight nerds, FTW
So when I first heard about Cassie's Mae's book entitled HOW TO DATE A NERD, my reaction was a little like this:


Then, even better, she let me read it.



(Find my review here)

And today she's hosting an awesomesauce bloghop *squee*


So what's the nerdiest thing about me? My obsession with Zelda? My addiction to kdramas? (yes, that's a nerdy thing, there's even a KCon that I wanted to go to so bad I considered selling my first born.)

Nope, that doesn't even come close. The nerdiest thing about me are my socks. You heard me. I wouldn't be a nerd without the right socks.



And that's how I get my nerd on. What about you?

You're a silly nerd - the best kind!

Peaches Ledwidge said...

What a tribute to Cassie Mae's book. Your post held my attention all the way.

I'll read the review.

Livia Peterson said...

You're one of the BEST nerds I know, Jennie! This post is hilarious, and I love it!

Kyra Lennon said...

I really want those socks LOL! Great post, Jennie!

Jessie Humphries said...

Those pictures are adorable! The one with the Twilight picture even looks like your glowing or sparkling in the background light! :)

P. Creeden said...

I LOVE the pic of captain picard - he looks so silly! :)

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Congrats you're an official nerd J.

This is the cutest. I love the "arguing about the properties of a horcrux" bit. I love being able to talk to other people in depth about fictional things and have them NOT roll their eyes and act like it doesn't matter because it's fictional.

And . . . SOCKS! I love the NERD socks! I wear two different colored socks. One is always patterned or decorated, and one is always plain. I have one drawer for the plain socks and one drawer for the patterned socks. It's pretty ridiculous.

Linda King said...

Fabulous socks! I've been wracking my brains to find something nerdy about myself because I REALLY want to be a nerd too, but I've come to the conclusion I am too detached and easy-come, easy-go to be a nerd about anything. Not a good quality to have really! Enjoying the nerdiness today!

Pk Hrezo said...

LOL... love the socks!! Awesomesauce. And girl, I'm a Zelda fiend too. I once called in sick to work for a week to complete the game. A week!! lol
Here's a nerdy highfive, sister!

ilima said...

You are adorable! I think I have more Twilight shirts than I can count, lol. :)

Christine Rains said...

Hehehe! Those are AWESOME socks! There's a bit of nerdy jealousy here. :)

Julie Dao said...

Nerds are the best people, period!

Krista McLaughlin said...

Those are incredibly nerdy socks and I love them! I also love the pink strip in your hair; so cute!! :)

Congrats to Cassie! I can't wait to read the book!

S Miller said...

ADORE the Picard pic! I wear funky socks too... awesome post!

Suzi said...

Gotta love warm socks. My feet are cold all year long and it's more fun to put on a colorful pair than blah black. :)

Heather Holden said...

Being a nerd is the best! Those socks you posted look super-cute. I'm very much a comic book nerd, and not even the cool kind, since the type of comics I like to read most are Archie...

Leandra Wallace said...

I have a Twilight tshirt too! Around here somewhere anyway... ;) Congrats to Cassie on her book!

Trisha F said...

I'm a nerd as well, though I tend not to show it as much on the outside like with a Twilight t-shirt. I do have the DVDs though, well not all of them but I'm going to buy the box set I think. ;)

Can't wait to read Cassie's book!

M.L. Swift said...

What a delightful post, Jennie!

Yep...you're a nerd. Pimple and everything. ;)

Good to see you...I'm not on this hop, just came to visit.

I like your nerd pride, lady! I guess most of my life accounts to nerdery. Certainly wearing a Hawaiian shirt to the midnight premiere of The Matrix 2.

Donna K. Weaver said...

I love Cassie's books. Her characters are relatable and funny. I need books sometimes that make me laugh.

Stephen Tremp said...

Harry Potter seems to be a common thread this week. I will be rereading the entire series start to finish during October.

Nerds unite!

Chrys Fey said...

I LOVE socks!!!! lol

I participated in the Nerd Blog Hop too, and the thing that makes me nerdy (I won't spoil it here) I also dressed up as for Halloween. :P

Emily R. King said...

Very cool socks. You've got your nerd on!

Melanie Stanford said...

Love that Picard GIF!
I've got a t-shirt that says, "I Never Got My Letter To Hogwarts So I'm Moving To Forks To Live With The Cullens."
Yep, that's only one of my nerdy shirts. :)

Mark Noce said...

Great pics:) Everyone in my life that's close to me is a nerd...who would want it any other way?

Jenny S. Morris said...

Omo, I love you!

Picard!!!! :)

My hubby told me I should put Kdrama addiction on my list of nerd things. LOL. LOVE those socks. :)

DAVID WALSTON said...

ZELDA!!
My son has a 3DS, I download the original Legend of Zelda on it.
The only problem is he keeps playing on my save spot because I've gotten farther than him.

Cassie Mae said...

I want those socks.

And we need to go see a midnight showing of something together. Dress up and be major awesome. Hunger Games! You and me babe :)

Chippy said...

I think I'm more of a geek than a nerd (I even have the t-shirt!). Occasionally I consider myself to be a dork.

Stopping by on the Post A To Z Road Trip :)
