Well, dear readers, its confession time. I am, it seems, a geek. Or maybe a dork. Perhaps both.
Aha! I'm a GORK!
"Hey, Irish, don't be hatin' on yo'self! Why you think that?" I can hear you say. Although why you would say it that way, I don't know. It amuses me, I guess.
Anyway, as to why. Two things have made me think I'm a gork. To wit:
ITEM THE FIRST:
Earlier today I finally did my taxes for the year. I had been dreading it, so I put it off as long as I thought I could. The weird thing was, once I got into them...I enjoyed it. You read that right: I enjoyed it. Best I can figure, I enjoyed it because I turned off the radio and the TV, sat down and really focused on something for a while, and got it done. No interruptions, no distractions, I FINISHED A THOUGHT, for the first time in months. Hooray! What's wrong with me?
ITEM THE SECOND:
How many of you have two pairs of glasses, one regular for most tasks and one tinted for outdoors/driving? Show of hands...good! Those of you who do, listen up, I am about to offer a lifestyle tip.
If one wants to appear self-assured, cool, even, then make sure that when you get in the car and you go to put on your driving glasses...that you remove your regular glasses beforehand. Trust me, it will save some embarrassment, and no one will point and laugh at you flailings and pokings. Not that it has happened to me...within the past week.
So there you have it, dear readers, two of the many steps on that steep slide into gorkdom. Take your time, be careful, I'll be waiting for you at the bottom, wearing my two pairs of glasses...
