Meet the Geek

In our family, the title of geek is usually reserved for my hubby, a web developer, sci-fi guy, lover of comics, GI Joes, MMORPGs and the like. Of course, he is also tall, dark, handsome, funny, sensitive and an awesome daddy. But this post is not about him. It's about a little of the geek in me that helped draw us together.

1. I can totally rock the glasses and high-bun librarian chic look.
2. I love spreadsheets and planners.
3. Don't get me started on common grammatical and spelling errors like your and you're.
4. I am a huge perfectionist when it comes to my design work. One pixel off and I will notice if something is off-center.
5. I love playing puzzle games like sudoku.
6. When I wash my kid's plastic colored dishes, they get stacked in the drying rack like a rainbow. Always.
7. I love symmetry. When I open our living room window, each side gets opened the same amount. None of this opening one side or anything.
8. My hubby totally turned me into an Apple convert. Only Macs for me, thanks.
9. I once spent a few hours on a bus learning to sing the alphabet backwards.
10. I love checklists, and sometimes write down things I've already done, just so I can cross them off.

So? Do I give my hubby a run for the title of family geek?

(And yes, I've re-read this post like five times to make sure I have no spelling/grammar errors)



  1. Ha ha, I have to admit that I also like to write things into a list that I have already done just so I can check them off. It makes me feel oh so productive!

  2. Annabel...I was just going to start my comment "ha-ha."=)
    I have never learned the alphabet backwards though I can do it pretty effortlessly if I give it a bit of thought. I try to keep my grammar in line, but pixels are too complicated. I like everything neat and orderly-very symmetrical. And I am an Apple girl through and through.=)
    And, I do the list thing either on paper or FB-or both. Just so I feel like I've done something.=)

  3. You need a period after "spelling/grammar errors". Bazinga.

    1. Well hubs, you have just proven your superior geek-ness. :)

  4. That is so cute that you line up the dishes in rainbow order. I re-read my posts like eight million times for typos/grammatical errors etc as well.

  5. Spreadsheets, Sudoku, symmetry, and high buns, ah! Love all these things. Must get together some time. Oh, and a big happy welcome to the Kingdom! ~Elizabeth
