TT #45: Are You a Geek?

21 Oct 2009
Thursday Thirteen

Co-worker: I have a question for you.

Me: 42.

CW: I’m not asking for the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything.

Me: You’re a geek. Only a geek would get that reference.

CW: So are you.

Me (looking affronted): I’m not a geek. Around here, I’m the Alpha Geek. I wholly embrace my geekiness and superiority that accompanies it.

CW: You’re a dork.

Me: I’m that too.

Are You a Geek?

The answer’s yes if you use any of the following quotes in casual conversation. I believe I used 12 out of the 13 listed. Alpha Geek, here. Remember?

And brownie points to anyone who knows the origins of the quotes.

 

Number 1
42.

Number 2
So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Number 3
Number One.

Number 4
Make it so. (Extra points if you combine this with #3.)

Number 5
Resistance is futile.

Number 6
It’s a good day to die.

Number 7
Live long and prosper.

Number 8
I have a very bad feeling about this.

Number 9
May the Force be with you.

Number 10
The Force is strong with this one.

Number 11
Time makes all things possible. I can wait.

Number 12
You fail me yet again.

Number 13
Knowing is half the battle.

    Happy TT from a fellow geek.

    I didn’t start out as a geek, but I married one, so through the years, I have been exposed to most of those quotes.

    Given that we have toddlers, our most common is Use the Fork! But I definitely qualify!

    My geek husband has infected me and now I must admit that I am a 13 point geek. Yep, that’s me.

    Happy T13!

    I do baked french fries sometimes…they are good. I’m not to big on the sweet potato fries, but all of the rest of my family love them! Thanks for stopping by!

    Let’s see, Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Trek, trek, trek, Star Wars…. But I can’t remember 42.

    @Alice Audrey: The snip at the beginning is a huge hint for 42. And you got everything else except for #11-13.

    Yep, I’m a Star Wars fan. Many of these quotes bring a smile to my face. Happy TT!

    I think I am more dork than geek.

  10. 22 Oct 2009 8:27 AM

    Ouch. I use at least 3of these regularly and have said most of them before. I didn’t start out to be a geek!

    My Thursday 13 is up. It is . Stop by if you get a moment.

    I giggled while reading this because I regularly use # 4, 5, 8, 10, & 13 (GI JOE! Oh, how I loved GI Joe… so few people know what I’m talking about when I say that, and then I feel all old…. babbling. Sorry.)

    I suppose I am not as much as a geek as I thought I was.

    Have a great Thursday! 🙂

    I’m married and mom to geeks so I recognize most of these. Fun T13.
