The Devil ludditerobot
made me do it: List 5 reasons why you are a dork. And make them good reasons.
Justify them. Explain them. Be loud and proud about how big of a dork
you are! Then pick the 5 biggest dorks you know and have them do the meme.
- When composing Livejournal entries and other assorted HTML posts, I make a distinction between my use of <i> tags for titles and <em> tags for other assorted emphasized text. Because there is a difference.
- Three words and three letters: Taiko Drum Master and DDR (neither of which I play with any degree of skill at all).
- I've never "picked up" a woman. I was actually struck speechless when a girl asked me to a party when we talked briefly at a condo event. I can't really cold-call a girl without a feeling of abject terror.
- When a friend asked me to help program an army of bots to play online poker, I declined because I felt it would ruin the "spirit of the game."
- Some three-to-four months ago, I busted my right pinky finger playing Soul Calibur II against batnandu when the player I was controlling behaved counter to my intended input. I slammed my fist against the coffee table several times, and now my finger has been tender and sore for the past few months.
Now, not necessarily because they're dorks, but I figure they probably have some good stories. If they really want to, they're welcome to: batnandu
Pretty dorky alright.
What, me? Um. I think you think I'm a dork.
You wouldn't be wrong. :)
I don't think you're a dork. With your having worked at White Wolf, however, I think you might have some juicy tidbits.
