I generally hate these things but hey. Dork!

Via nefas, the You are Such a Dork Chain Letter “Meme” Thing:

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. My job title is “Senior Unix System Administrator”.
  2. I am a licensed amateur radio operator.
  3. My first career was rock critic and arts journalist.
  4. I went to work for AOL as an online “Guide” in 1991 because I was spending too much money playing their online D&D game and needed free access.
  5. I laugh out loud, geeksnorting, at the cleverly multilayered cultural references in Umberto Eco’s novels.

Hm, five biggest dorks I know? Competition here is stiff, so I’ll just kinda pick five of the people I know, almost all of whom are dorks of some type.

  1. deja vu
    ok, what’s totally weird about this is my “5 reasons i am a dork” post was totally random, unsolicited, unmemed, just me feeling dorky. does this count as a plate o’ shrimp?? i wanted to track this meme back, but can’t due to locked entries. did i unknowingly start a meme?

  2. I think Half the Guides joined to pay for their Never Winter Nights addiction.
    I joined to bust snert head!
    Okay, I wasn’t addicted to NWN but I was addicted to a Chat Room (gaah shoot me now) and I didn’t have local access, so the 800# fees and the AOL Fees made for some big bills.
