I wear my nerd-badge with pride!

Akabeko of Red Cow Rise came up with the following shared topic on Blog Azeroth this week:

How do you express your geekery? Do you own obvious paraphernalia like a Horde-symbol bumper sticker, in-joke tshirts like the dps/ups pun, or less obviously related items like a gift from a guildie? Rather than physical indicators, do you mix nerd lingo into your everyday speech or talk/post about geekdom in non-nerd spaces? How do you advertise your nerd tendencies? Does it help you to attract new nerd friends?

How do I express my geekery? I do it in various ways. One is the lingo. I am one of those people who will talk in Leet-speak on occasion, it does get worse when I’m around people I know who will get it. Often I am caught quoting certain games or tv-programmes/films that are seen as geeky.

I was never bothered about wearing clothes that showed my inner-geek. I owned a warcraft-hoodie and I still browse Jinx often hoping to find something that’s not too expensive that I can buy to show the world that I’m a nerd/geek. I never felt that I should be ashamed for being the person I am. Sometimes you get people who don’t get it and think that you’re strange. One of my colleagues once commented (behind my back) to my superior that the shirt I was wearing was inappropriate and a bad influence on the kids I was teaching. This was a Jack Skellington hoodie. To say I was p*ssed off is understating it. I don’t mind explaining it to people, if they’d just ask me. The kids loved it though and in the end my colleague was in the wrong. Not me.

I still wear geek-related shirts if I can and I love it if that helps with meeting new friends or people with the same interest. It’s great to start a conversation that way. You already know that you can talk about a certain subject!  Most gifts that I love to receive from my friends are geek-related. You can’t make me happier. In fact, the best gift I once got was from a former guildie. We were really good friends in game and because I loved Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the druid set (especially the antlers) she bought be a mini plushie moose. I still have it and I love it to bits.

I will always be proud of being a geek/nerd and I think secretly my husband loves it that I’m already talking about future baby clothes with little geeky texts on them!
