Yes, I am a Nerd.

21 Dec

I think that sometimes people get the wrong impression when I first meet them. Yes, I love shopping, fashion and designer shoes, and well – just shoes and fashion/shopping in general. Yes, I love gossip websites, celebrity magazines and going out with my various girlfriends for cocktails in fun dresses. Yes, I was a cheerleader, a cheerleading coach, a homecoming court princess and in a sorority. But here’s the real deal folks – I am a HUGE nerd. 

I am a stay in on the weekends, read a book, talk to no one, watch Law & Order marathons nerd. I love watching Muppet movies and organizing my closet and dresser drawers by style and color. I fold all my socks and underwear, I sort my shoes by varying degrees of dressiness and by color. I like to make my bed and wash my makeup brushes. I make lists – all sorts of lists – from work to-do’s, to goals, to shopping lists for various stores like Target and lists for errands to run, I keep lists of books to read, lists of CD’s to put on hold at the library and lists of people to write emails and cards to. I can finish one book and within 15 minutes (after a hearty internal debate) move straight into my next book all with a smile on my face. 

Why am I telling you this you ask? Well because today due to inclement weather once again I was home bound and I did many of  those things. I finished a book and started a new one, I put away clothing items and yes, I watched part of the Law and Order: Criminal Intent marathon on Bravo (CI is my least favorite of the L&O’s by the way). 

I get teased quite a bit for my high level of nerd behavior. Some might think it’s sad but really, I think that my nerd factor is just part of my unique charm. A fun quirk that makes me even more special perhaps.

*I did try and branch out and be mainstream by watching I Am Legend – but I knew at some point Will Smith’s dog dies and I just couldn’t deal with watching that part plus all the suspense was starting to freak me out so after my third round of pausing the movie I just chickened out and changed the channel.

Here’s some pics from my adventure out to my car at the bottom of my hill – holy snow – this weather is nutso!
