You are sitting in Statistics class with 95% of the class 20 years younger than you are and these things happen:

1. You are the only one in your sitting area that got 100 on the pop quiz.
2. You are the only one that offers an (correct) answer to a question regarding conditional probabilities after waiting 30 seconds to give someone else a chance.
3. There are <300 people in this class.

I felt like Hermione Granger, and it was a nice feeling!

When you mistake the sound of an electric pencil sharpener for the TARDIS and then have to remind yourself that Doctor Who isn't real.  ;D

We have an infestation of clothes moth larvae in the laundry room. Every day there are a few on the ceiling, even though we never see them moving up the walls. We call them the Weeping Angels.

My mother has imposed a rule on my nerdy family: books cannot be read during the Christmas gift exchange. You can read the back, flip a couple of pages, ask the giver about it but then it must be put down so other presents can be opened. This rule came into effect the year she found herself surrounded by people reading and unopened presents. SHe has also subtly manipulated the gift pile so that books come last.

I hope I have to institute such a rule some day.  Your family is awesome.

You know you've achieved nerdhood when...

...you go out and get a 2nd Gameboy just so you can metagame Pokemon.

It's alright, man. I'm only bleeding, man. Stay hungry, stay free, and do the best you can.

The Sweetie just extemporized a poem for me:

My wife is a beauty
Sweet and sonorious
Just like the nightlife

Nerdy and geeky.  Forgive me.

You suggest using that extra little compartment in your sister's new shortwave radio to store polyhedral die.  Why?  So we can roll numbers and enter random frequencies.

(It's perfect, too.  We almost never get anything above 20 mHz (20,000 kHz), so the d20 is a perfect start, followed by rolling a d10 a couple of times. :) )

You recognise the baddie in NCIS, not as the baddie from a CSI episode you watched last week, but from the small role he played in 2 episodes of Star Trek: Voyager that you haven't seen in almost 2 years.

That happens to me all the time!

When you remember random (to other people) actors, and everyone is impressed. You like that they're impressed, but you won't admit you remember them because they all played Vulcans on Star Trek!

Or you recgonise their voices but you can't place them because you've never seen them without their make up on (Neelix used to be the worst one for me.) so you have to look up imdb to check who they are.

Are we all related? 

I have to admit, I am much better with recognizing that I know a voice than a face...especially all those assorted aliens.  :>
