Nerds no more! That's right.
I have so much Star Wars stuff, I have a Republic Gunship in my kitchen window.
Chicks come bye and have asked me if I had a son, or if those are my toys, LOL.
Well, naturally I have to explain to them that I'm a huge Star Wars fan, and I also have to show them my Transformers and Star Trek stuff, and the Terminator toys, too.
Then they want to come over, hang out and "do a movie night" and see stuff (like the Terminator movies) that they've never seen - or say ("I remember Jean-Luc Picard. I used to watch him sometimes when I was in grade school") and then say "let's kick back and watch Star Trek. Do you have the old episodes?" (Do I ??????!!!!!)
They say I'm cute and get excited about this stuff like a little boy.
Then they hang around a lot - and then some.
I've just been thinking about that, as I have a girlfriend and need to watch who ever else I spend too much time with, but it sure is strange that when I thought hot chicks would say "Geek! Loser" etc. and not be bothered with a dork like me (who needs to leave the bedroom at 6:30am to make Wal-Mart on time to get Clone Wars animated figures every morning), and they like me as a guy with personality. Go figure.
Guys - be yourself and enjoy your life. I don't think you'll be denied friendships and companionships because of your interests. It never happened to me.
Now I just have too much attention when I have ladies over in my pad trying to figure out how to transform my Autobots into cars and back again.
Needless to say, my latest party was a little weird, but I'm loving life I think!
