I say NEVER!!!! And with that, we welcome the newest member to the GOO Team. (That’s The Geek Out Online Team to anyone keeping score at home.) Kaci, podcast co-host extraordinaire, and good friend to the site joins us for an interesting post discussing an interesting dilemma…in the end, you must be the judge…is she too girly? Without further ado, Kaci:
While jamming out to some Top 40 hits today it occurs to me: I really have nothing going for me in regards to being a geek. I mean, I’m listening to Ciara and Justin Timberlake sing “Love Sex Magic,” and I totally heart JT. That can’t be geeky. Also, almost every shirt in my closet is pink, I’m wearing big hoop earrings, and the last two movies I watched were “Marley and Me” and “Definitely, Maybe.”
Maybe I’m too girly to be a geek.
It’s a real bummer to realize this now, after being on GOL twice, and telling Steve “Yeah. Sure. I would love to write for Geek Out Online. That sounds like fun.” Grr at me.
So now, I’m officially bummed out. The only thing that can make me feel better now is to watch some “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.” But friends, I only have the original trilogy on VHS, and my VHS player is in a box somewhere still waiting to be unpacked. I could walk all the way down stairs to get Episode I or III, which are right next to my “Smallville” collection, but that’s risky since I just painted my toe nails, and they look uber cute. (sigh) I guess, I’ll just have to watch something on my DVR.
Let’s see. I’ve got some Clone Wars on here. I just started watching “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” and I really like it. I’ve already seen this one though, the one where Ahsoka loses almost her entire squadron and is really shaken up. No, I want something more … happy.
“Dollhouse,” maybe? Probably not going to do the trick today, but this is such a cool show. Actually, it is one of my favorite new shows right now. Some of you “I’m just not a big Joss Whedon fan” folks out there — and you know who you are — need to get over yourselves, and check it out. It’s more action-movie-esque than things like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” but still can be pretty funny. It’s a tough series to write a synopsis for, so I’m not even going to try to do that here. But go to Hulu or something and check it out. After a couple of episodes, you might just realize you’ve been missing out. “LOST” last week was really cool too, although, I totally saw the “That creepy dude is your dad” thing coming. “Smallville’s” “Stiletto” was stinking awesome last week, also, but I’ve already watched that twice.
So now it’s down to “Doctor Who” and “How I Met Your Mother.” I love “Doctor Who” but it looks like HIMYM is new tonight so case closed. HIMYM has to be the funniest show on TV since “Friends.” The episode called “Matchmaker” where Marshall and Lily find this icky creature living in there apartment that looks like a cross between a cockroach and a mouse — a cockamouse — Oh my gosh, I laugh my rear off every time.
An episode of this should cheer me right up. Then, I’ll go change into my PJs, put on some fuzzy pink socks, and try to think of some way to tell Steve about my revelation: I’m too girly to be a geek. And I’m so disappointed.
