A story on Fox News this morning gave me the idea for this thread....apparently being a nerd is now cool...

TOTD: In high school, what were you? Nerd? Jock? Rocker? Part of the Cool, Party Crowd? Somewhere in between?

I would fall into the "in between" category (although Shannon would say I was definitely a nerd) because I was friends with and hung out with everyone in those classifications. I was a quiet, somewhat shy and introverted teenager...but did play some sports and went to parties, etc. :cool:

Sunny and hot today in the metropolis. Getting ready to tutor my girlfriend in driving to work and come back with the car. Productive day yesterday in the pub! :D

TOTD: Good topic, DS. In HS, many years ago, I was a bit like the Christian Slater character in Heathers.

I was always that Bill Murray from Ghostbusters character, crazy and odd, yet fun cool and hip to party with. :cool:

I would say you were a nerd because you were a nerd, dear.:rolleyes: I'm not sure what category would describe me best. People feared me and wanted to be my friends.:p

I was probably "in between". I wasn't a jockette and I wasn't a stoner; it was a small private girls' school, and we all had to live together. :)

We'll have another hot day (hot by our standards) and then a big cool down for the weekend. Why didn't I plant more peas? Those little babies are addictive. The cherries have also come in so I may make a cherry pie for Mr. Snaps.

TOTD: I would guess I was a nerd but I wasn't really clued in to it since I hang out with all the other overachievers who were heavily involved in competitive academics and debate. I was also in the band which is a complete and highly competitive world in itself.

I disliked high school because it was just the way I had to mark time before college. Today I would demand to homeschool myself and I would burn through the workload in 2 years, not 4. :D

Overcast here - zip on the waves, but they’re coming this weekend. 20% chance of rain tomorrow - minor front to move it. Surf will probably be a bit choppy - but higher than the knees anyway.

TOTD: Car nut. 3AM engine work to see if we could get the front wheels off the ground, dodging the cops out in front of school at lunch, where the girls could see us as they sat on the lawn. Many ‘exhibition of speed' tickets in my 63’ Nova - straight axle.

Oh, and I got expelled for a week the first day of high school - for fighting. That’s when I first learned that you want to make the Samoan guys your friends and not piss them off.:cool:

Expelled or suspended? It normally takes a lot more than one fight to get expelled.( well, back then anyway)

Expelled. Apparently my reputation had proceeded me from Jr. High and I was forced to go to summer school after my Freshman year to clear the crime. Principle was a major prick, but my dad straightened his ass out.

I played Football and Baseball, so I guess Jock. But I also hung out with a whole group of diffrent people. The thugs, a couple of nerds, some preppy kids. I was never into the clicks.

No need for it. Shannon and I have a special relationship. She kicks around my junk and I cry myself to sleep everynight.


Its almost like we're married.

It's more like you're picturing her in a dominatrix outfit. (Not that I'm doubting for a moment that she has a selection of them.)

Do women really need an outfit to knock around a guy's no-no spot? I thought a wedding ring took care of that.

The right outfit for the right occasion is very important. And let's face it, for Shannon it would be all about the shoes.

I was thinking the same thing - too chunky for an ankle bracelet. Actually, an ankle bracelet is not a good look for anyone.

Woman gets $15k for snapped stiletto
July 09, 2008 08:49pm (http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,23995591-401,00.html)


A BRITISH woman who broke her ankle after one of her high heels snapped has won $14,900 in compensation.

Sophie King, 20, was wearing a pair of strappy black peep-toe stilettos with 6cm heels on a night out with friends in Manchester when one broke, sending her sprawling on the floor.

After the accident, which happened four years ago, Ms King had to have an operation on her ankle and was forced to quit her hairdressing job while she recovered.

Woman Stabbed by Stiletto Heel or Her Own Shoe

The woman struck by shoe sought medical attention several days later now has a serious infection.
Thursday, July 10, 2008 (http://www.wrva.com/cc-common/news/sections/newsarticle.html?feed=104673&article=3937318)



Seattle police are seeking a man who stabbed a woman with the stiletto heel of her own shoe, causing an infection that required emergency surgery.

The 39-year-old woman underwent emergency surgery on Saturday after contracting an "aggressive" bacterial infection, according to Seattle Times.
(this story gets pretty wild!)

I spent a lot of time in the library, which I guess would qualify me for the nerd spot. But I was fine with that. Reallly!
