Ok, I admit it.

I’ll never deny it. In fact, I embrace it. I encourage it in those who try to hide it, and I seek it out in others. I surround myself with those who have it, and I disregard people who look down on those of us with it. It gives us a certain perspective on the world, and when we all rule the world, it will definitely be because of it.

I’m talking, of course, about my level of geekiness.

I read comic books. I have action figures. I can quote The Simpsons and I know what planet Yoda lived on. These are relatively minor examples, but you get the gist. I’m proud of being a geek, and I love to nit-pick apart movies, books, television, people – whatever. I like to memorize funny lines, follow an actor or a writer, learn about technology – all of the things that define a geek.

But today was when I realized that I’ve crossed that line. I’m never coming back.

Because when you start to get sexually excited about the new monitor you just ordered, you are an irrefutable, irreversible, unforgivable geek. Even if the monitor in question looks like this:

Dell 30 inch Widescreen Monitor

Excuse me while I go do dirty things to myself and think about this beauty arriving in a few days.

  1. Mike, that’s not a schlong, that’s a midget in my pants!

    NYCWD, it’s good to be among people who think the same!

    RW, 10 years, I think.

    Jay, exactly.

    BPR, I don’t think it’s just a male thing. Doesn’t it give you a tingly feeling down among the rows of teeth in your vagina?

    Angel, you’ve got the 30-inch Samsung? I almost bought that one instead.

    Dave, just the monitor. The rest of the computer is custom built.

    Hilly, well, it’s how you use it.

    Sheila, it means that you are also a geek.

    Brandi, yes, they are – has a 9-in-1 card reader and four USB 2.0 ports. And if you go to and sign up there with the same email address you use when you post comnments, every blog that uses Gravatar will show whatever image you upload.

    Mr. Fabulous, I don’t see you as a geek, though.

    Phishez, yeah? Awesome! I currently have two 19″ CRTs right next to each other, but I figured it was time to upgrade.

    Heather, rawr.

  2. ADW, I think you should wait until the 3rd generation iPhone so they can fix the whole problem with actually talking on it, since that happens to be its weakest point.

    Christie, damn straight!

    Turnbaby, you’re on crack! No geek who can rightfully call themselves a geek should be using a computer that they didn’t build.

    Metalmom, wow. Yeah, you need some updating.

    Mistress Yoda, it’s wearing protection.

    Wayne, good to hear – I read a lot of reviews before deciding on it.

    Mike, HAHAHAHA! Very nice.

    Poppy, whatever you say. /rolls eyes.

    BPR, yes, it might.

    Turnbaby, you have to let it get approved by the site, and then select it as your globabl gravatar on for it to work, and it still might take a day or two.

  3. I’m not using a computer I built! I’ve built enough machines in my days to last a lifetime. Make my machine for me, Bitch!

    (Hehe, I love using Heather’s little “Bitch” phrase.)

  4. Poppy, my eye was rolling – you couldn’t poke it with a fork!

    Lynda, it’s definitely drool-worthy.

    Robin, exactly! No little monitor/Avitable kids for me!

    Turnbaby, nope. You’re a pretender!

  5. Tracy, I’d rather have this than a RealDoll anyday!

    Mahogany Flower, damn straight.

    Amy, your dorkiness knows no bounds. You aren’t allowed to judge.

    TMP, good to know you’re on the side of the geeks.

    Michael, I had a wet dream about it last night.

    Heather, sweet!

    DB, yeah? Looks like I made the smart choice, then.
