You Know You're A Nerd When... (The Friday Night Edition)

You know you're a total nerd when the highlight of your entire Friday is:

...the mailman knocking on your door to hand you the box containing your plush, new Brookstone E-pad lapdesk!!! (And all for the low, low cost of just $20 bucks including shipping & handling, courtesy of eBay!!!!)

*wild applause, confetti, ticker tape parade*

(Yes, that's HALF-OFF the regular $39.99 price tag... WOO HOOOOOO!!!!!!)




Removing your precious cargo from the irrelevant 1-800-Birthday shipping box, you hold it proudly overhead like Simba....basking. Fully aware that it's not your birthday, you do not care....as you are completely engrossed in the fact that no un-birthday has ever felt better.

Then while baptizing your new $20 wood-veneered lapdesk in the name of Nerdom (with holy water and splashes of Lemon Pledge), you fantasize about spending every waking moment forward with it: On the floor... in the bed... on the couch... in the park....in the tub....on a boat...

Laptop bag disguise


Outsmart the kleptos and hide your treasured MAC & PC goodies in this uber hot LAPTOP BAG disguised as-- A NEWSPAPER!!! This laptop lifesaver is made of plastic, measures at about 35cm x 28cm x 5cm and also features a zipper closure and removable carrying chain! It runs about €60 on MiteMite.

Great, right?!

Oh, but wait..

Since I've exposed the disguise, now thieves will know that they should also steal your "newspapers" too, just to be sure? Oh yeah...  Darnit.


Still cute though.

Oh, well. Just pick yourself up one anyway, and we'll hope that they don't read this article.

Phone Stack
Who wants to play me in a game of PHONE STACK??! ;)

You know, the game where you and your friends stack all of your cell phones in the middle the table before dinner to prove how non-addicted to technology you are.... and the first to pick up their phone to answer a call or text pays for dinner!
Yes. COOL!

While my cell phone is quite arguably the best friend I've ever had, (and I'm seriously considering having it's image tattooed inside my right palm so that it will always be a part of me)... DO let me warn you...

...I would SO order 16 lobsters, unlimited fillet mignon, and an exquisite 300-year old wine on your azz to totally teach you a lesson on cell phone table etiquette, at your own expense. :)
That's right, dinner on YOU.  I will NOT lose.
