I just thought I'd share a little example of the nerdiness with which I live.
What do you, or your husbands/friends/boyfriends/etc. do when they are on the computer?
Things like Facebook, check out music, blog (woo!), play games, read about sports, email, etc, right?
Well, if you were to peek over Mark's shoulder, like I did last night, this is what you would see:
So it's a map of Africa - no big deal, right?
Well, notice how there aren't names of the individual countries on the continent. So, for daily entertainment, Mark sits down at the computer, on this website called "Sporcle" (www.sporcle.com) and plays games like this, where he has a certain amount of time to type in all the names of the countries correctly. It's a website full of trivia games.
There are games about geography, games about sports, games about music, actors, tv shows, and just about anything you can imagine. Some of them are cool. But, really? A map of Africa?
Mark was all-state in quiz bowl in high school. Trivia is his middle name.
In case you still don't get the depth of his commitment, he actually said this to me last night:
"I almost have all the countries in the world memorized!"
Cool, sweetie. That's so awesome. Isn't that everyone's dream?
So, in case there was a question over who the nerd is, I hope it's settled. (-:
