what are you?

i am...

Modern, Cool Nerd
65 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 39% Dork
For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

Hi Cori

I enjoy reading your blog. I just wanted to let you know that I also have the sock book you mentioned last week and have often been frustrated by it not staying open properly! THANKS so much for the great idea about the coil binding. I've no idea what "Kinko's" is - we don't have them up here in Canada - but I brought my book to Office depot and in minutes it was coil bound for $3.45 .... I'm so excited and thankful for your good idea. I loved the socks you started and I ordered the same Regia cotton yarn (can't get it in my small Canadian town). So with my new book and yarn I'm all set to start - never tried on 2 circs before - any helpful hints?

Cori, had to come by and say hello after you commented on my post on KR. Do you have a lot of baby knitting projects lined up? I keep finding more and more patterns I like! Hope your pregnancy is going well. I am due sometime the firt full week of June. It's going to be a crazy but fun summer!

I suppose that those kind of results were to be expected for a knitter, eh?
