I AM A DORK

Since tagged me….

List 5 reasons you are a dork. And make them good reasons. Justify them. Explain them. Be loud and proud of how big a dork you are! Then pick the 5 biggest dorks you know and have them do the meme…

1. I teach Indian Lore, Archaeology, Environmental Science, and Soil and Water Conservation at a boy scout camp. Today, in the rain, I said, “Oooh! look! Rill-type erosion, and sheet erosion over there! Look!” This is not normal behavior for a history teacher. OK, maybe it is.

2. When asked “what’s new?” I frequently don’t bother talking about me and what’s going on in my life — I bring up the lastest discoveries about the last Ice Age, 20,000 years ago. I really did this once, and ‘s friends N and M never let me live it down.

3. I write role-playing games, which is kinda cool — but I miss playing them a lot, and I buy a lot of game books even though I know I’ll hardly ever be using them. That makes me somewhat unhappy, and it’s definitely dorky.

4. I teach history at a junior high school. Almost by definition, that makes me dorky. Even when I’m cool, I’m dorky.

5. I keep a Live Journal. ’nuff said.

Feel free to add comments indicating numerous ways that I am dorky which I may have forgotten to list.

I challenge….

and
… to explain five reasons they might be considered dorky.

  1. I am an old-school dork because I still have anime subtitled in Japanese on VHS but recorded from Laser Disc Players (not CD’s or DVD’s, for the generationally challenged) ….

    Hey, just having dated someone who owned (and was rather proud to show off) a Laser Disc Player ought to rack up some major geek points!

  5. Re: I love it…

    All right then. Will put some serious thought into it. Because if I only get five reasons, I want them to be five really really good reasons.
