You buy a Mass Effect novel* even though you know you could probably write a better one yourself.


*I don't even look at fiction, but my ex waved it in my face, and it was cheap, and I have a long bus trip...

Could be worse, you could be writing bad DA:O Fanfiction... :-[

When at 4 your nan used to cringe when you pulled out the same book for a bedtime story almost every night. The Children's Dictionary.

I love you, but if Zombies are chasing us I'm tripping you up.

When attending a work related event, and being presented with a name tag that says "Hello, My Name Is:" with a spot to write your name under it, you write "Inigo Montoya". But then have to remove it because no one else gets the joke and you just get a lot of weird looks. *sulk*

I read this to Mr. Sirius, who I figured would get the joke the instant I said, "Hello, My Name Is."  He did. 

You should have been able to tell I was into astronomy by my moniker, since Sirius is the brightest star in the sky, northern and southern hemisphere.  I've never been south far enough to see Canopus, #2 except for the time I went to Texas, and it stormed all that week.

When it's almost 4AM and you're still awake because Victorian Pharmacy is on.  ;D
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

...when you announce that you need your laptop fixed so you can go to write-ins during NaNoWriMo and your husband finally understands that you intend to take said laptop to a predetermined location so that you can write in the midst of several dozen other people who are also writing, and he declares that it is 'too nerdy for him, and that's saying something.'

...when said husband declares that he is not proud of your nerdiness, but threatened by it.

I have achieved greatness this day.  ;D

When you have a 'design a t-shirt' day at Mother's Group and every other person there has pictures of their children to put on their shirts.....you have a picture of the Tardis.
