I was not always the cool guy you have come to know and love. Back in the day I spent my weekends watching Doctor Who
and playing Dungeons and dragons. My after school activities included marching band and drama club and made extra money working in a video store. I ran with a pretty hip crowd. As I got older a lot of things I enjoyed like comic books, punk music, and video games, which resulted in my becoming cool…. To 15 year olds. My peers still consider me a huge nerd. Over the years I tried to keep my interests on the down low. With the exception of a few sci-fi posters and my extensive library that can be written off as the guilty pleasures everyone enjoys. Over the past few months several roommates moved in chipping away at the outer shell of cool that I built around me to reveal the nerd beneath. My world of coolness is quickly unravelling. I am running a nerd half-way house of guys who all work in video game stores and who own:
5 video game systems!
a room with 2 computers
And the nail in the coffin....
...an x-box door matt!
So reluctantly come out of the closet as the huge nerd that I am. In fact, I feel like there is a huge weight that has come off my shoulders. This is how God made me and how I shall remain for the rest of my life. It ain't a bad thing.
And don't forget the guest blog assignment. I'm interested in your imput.UPDATE:
To innaugurate my coming out as a nerd and because so many people hated the picture of me I'd like to introduce you to Ingus, the monkey nerd and my new picture. Enjoy. Hat tip to Lutherpunk
