Notes from underground

يارب يسوع المسيح ابن اللّه الحيّ إرحمني أنا الخاطئ

Embrace your inner dork

I’m not sure who originated this, but I rather liked the blog posts that incorporated the graphic.

dorkSo hat-tip to Ador(k)able !! | maniacal melancholic and Guidebook for the Dysfunctional: Embrace the inner dork. With a hat-tip to Clinton Kingma, who posted a link on Facebook.

I supose this post is using blogs as they were originally intended, as a weB log, a log of web sites visited, sometimes with comments on them, and sometimes not.

Anyway Guidebook for the Dysfunctional: Embrace the inner dork says:

Since no decent dictionary even defines the word ‘dork,’ I had to go to the urban dictionary. This was my favorite definition: “Someone who has odd interests, and is silly at times.” A dork is also someone who can be themselves and not care what anyone thinks. When I was growing up, being a dork was a bad thing, and believe me, I know, because I was a dork. Other words I may have been called were nerd, geek, loser, lame, wannabe, goober and many more I don’t care to share.

And I rather liked this bit from Ador(k)able !! | maniacal melancholic:

While my peers finished their degrees and got married and had kids and moved into suburbian structures; while they changed nappies and invested in stock options; while they listened to Afrikaans music and watched rugby at the braai… I was reading books, and writing, and philosophising and discovering Edith Piaf and Fever Ray and stayed up all night to watch a meteor shower.

  1. What’s the difference between a geek and a dork?

  2. A geek is someone who bites off the heads of live chickens at a fair. A dork isn’t.
