Apparently, today is Geek Pride Day, a day for geeks to celebrate their geekiness. It is a fairly new unofficial holiday, first celebrated in 2006. The date of May 25th was chosen because it was the day in 1977 when (as Star Wars geeks know) the first Star Wars movie was released.
I didn't actually know about Geek Pride Day until I got to work. Luckily I am a proud geek every day, so today I happen to be wearing an appropriately geeky t-shirt. The dragon on the side isn't just any dragon, but the dragon logo for BioWare video game Dragon Age: Origins.
Anyone recognize the board in the background? Since finals I haven't had reason to use the board again, and I like to leave the equations up there to scare away the biological and chemical oceanographers who might wander into my office. They should fear us physical oceanographers. We are mighty.
There was a very monumental event recently in geek world, and by that I'm referring to the Lost series finale that aired on Sunday. I will have some words to say about that soon enough, but I may want to combine it with reflections on the season finales of a few other shows, so I might wait until after FlashForward has its finale. Or maybe I'll decide Lost should get its own post. We'll see.
Now I'll just have to think of something geeky to do this evening. Play more Portal? Watch The Guild? Big Bang Theory? (I'm trying to get The Housemate caught up on both.) It shouldn't be a stretch for me to find a geeky way to celebrate the day. If you're reading my blog, chances are you are also a geek in one way or another. So happy Geek Pride Day! Have a good one.
