I'm a nerd/geek. And I don't mean someone who claims to be a nerd cause they occasionally watch Battlestar Galactica. I mean someone who truly loves knowledge, who lists among his favorite activities looking up the answer to any question he doesn't know. I also mean someone who can list every member of baseball's 600 HR club (and most of the 500 HR club, but that got crowded in a hurry in the 90s/00s). I mean someone who got upset at the whole midichlorian thing, because how can you reduce the Force, THE FORCE, to a blood count? What is it, like cholesterol?
I'm a Midwesterner, out here on the East Coast. Doing my best to retain my Midwestern habits, like signaling lane changes.
I alternate between being frustrated with humanity and yearning for connection.
