Your Score: Pure Nerd


56 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 47% Dork




For The Record:



A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.



You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.



The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.



Congratulations!

recalcitrant \rih-KAL-sih-truhnt\, adjective:

Jun. 19th, 2007 | 12:11 am

recalcitrant \rih-KAL-sih-truhnt\, adjective:
Stubbornly resistant to and defiant of authority or restraint.

ob·strep·er·ous [uhb-strep-er-uhs] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–adjective
1. resisting control or restraint in a difficult manner; unruly.
2. noisy, clamorous, or boisterous: obstreperous children.

It's probable that people who are recalcitrant and obstreperous are unlikely to be able to define themselves as such because of the complexity of the words. And so those in charge stay in charge through the power of language.

a letter direct from my stream of subconscious

Jun. 6th, 2007 | 01:46 pm

And he leans to the left and says woof and I turn left and when he leans to the right and says woof I turn right and I tell yer I got to work 2 minutes faster than I normally would and the guard at Battersea Power Station, because that’s where I work said hello and I said hello and we got there and two minutes later there was a downpour, about three inches of it and I reckon if I hadn’t listened to my dog I would’ve been caught in it. So thank you for bringing him back.

His wife is in pink silk pyjamas, she has her name tag on them game show style, and says she doesn’t mind me ringing the doorbell for a second time because she was watching a movie and she loves movies.

They are in a house. I’ve gone back the second time to return a credit card of his that I’d found in the same place ( a street café) where I found the dog although originally I actually found the dog on something similar to but not exactly Reddington road. Anyway their house is huge and luxurious and on a maze like suburban new housing estate that’s full of smaller houses. And the dog has his own house one number down but it’s basically a human sized snoopy kennel except it has a dog sized cat flap at the front instead of a front door and his food is outside the door.

And I am trying to do all this, return all these things, out of love. At the beginning of the dream you were there Lucy and we’d just had a fun time out but I left you so I could return the dog. The dog was a golden retriever identical in personality to Stanley but looking like James’s previous dog Epus. Later I had a dream about being chased by a point of electricity. Oh and when I first tried to return the dog I met some friends (who’ve I never met in reality before) and they were exploring all of London’s streets alphabetically which I told them was rather an inefficient way of exploring London because it meant that they’d have to keep driving North and South, North and South.

And now I’ve written this I feel really sad and heavy.

Thou shalt think for yourselves.
And thou shalt always kill.

new fav song from Carly Simon and Will Powers

Apr. 16th, 2007 | 09:25 pm

Lyrics


You may be a sharp dresser, you may be a fantastic dancer, you may be a lively conversationalist, but what happens at the end of the evening when the time comes to show how you feel? Unless you can kiss with confidence all your fancy dressing, dancing and talking won't get you a second date.

I'd meet a boy I really liked
I'd start to win his heart
Come the time to kiss good-night
I always fell apart

I'd giggle like I had no brains
Or else I'd start to cough
I thought my perspiration stains
Would turn a fellow off

She was nervous
She was too shy
She was breathless
Lips were too dry
Hands were shaking
Didn't know why


Do you want to kiss this person? Then be honest - what is keeping you from kissing with confidence? Worries. Some of them can be put to rest if you ask yourself a few simple questions before kissing.

Is your breath fresh?
Do your have spinach on your teeth?
Is your deodorant strong enough?

You may also find yourself worrying about what will happen once you are in the act of kissing. Will your stomach growl? Will your braces lock? Will you be able to prolong the kiss and still breathe?

Will I spoil it with my overbite?
Will our noses bump in the moonlight?
When our lips meet, will they fit right?


These worries are best cleared from the mind by the romance chant method, a technique which will also place your lips naturally in kissing position. Hableme el unico del mundo. Digame: comoe te hace ese sonido. Tan glorioso. Que aun hoba con anticipation de el. Me ha reducio a un bestia. Grunedo. Entusiomandose y paliptando. Practice this chant in the morning as you rise, in the evening as you retire and just before a date.

Once you have mastered these techniques there is only one worry left - will it go too far? It never will if you remain alert to these danger signals - heavy breathing, wandering hands, strong heartbeats. A nice way to maintain self-control without offending the other person is to say -- "I'm not ready to handle what I think is coming", then you both go home and daydream. Tomorrow you can start again fresh. Just remember - you can not get pregnant from kissing.

I put an end to worrying, I learned the way from Will
He showed me kissing with confidence is an acquired skill
When my boyfriends get too hot I can cool 'em down
Now I'm kissing with confidence everywhere in town

In the schoolyard
At the front door
In the laundromat
At the drug store

At the car wash
In the back seat
At the Dairy Queen
On a side street

In the basement
On the rooftop
At the drive in
At the stop and shop

On the back porch
At the candy store
On the boardwalk
By the seashore

In the balcony
At the malt shop
In the parking lot
On the blacktop

My poor new roommate Alice, and more endless mother issues.

Jan. 17th, 2007 | 12:37 am

Alice asked me to tidy. Poor poor Alice.

I don’t miss my mother I miss what I wanted her to be. She was controlling and frightened. So she ended up sounding condescending.

Why attach such importance to whether Diet Coke is left in the room. As to whether the cushions are puffed up in exactly the military way that she commanded. As if it were a matter of life and death, that such a thing should be out of her control.

So what do I want? I want proper warmth and understanding. I don’t want to respond with such equal life and death passion about said Diet Coke. “What do you mean don’t forget to throw my Diet Coke bottle away?” Oh the pain, the insult. She doesn’t trust me. Nay, she doesn’t’ love me. I am just something for her to consume, use, burn up, tear inside out and then stomp on. Does she not believe that I am not capable of taking the Diet Coke out of the room? She doesn’t love me, she doesn’t love me. She thinks I’m pathetic…another wire hanger for her to fear and hate.

“No really Aaron, I was just reminding you, I wasn’t being condescending, it’s just that you forget things.”

“I know I am sorry, just put up with me till I get therapy.”

I think I’ll always have that pain of having a mother who wasn’t all there., and then died before she could make amends or I could understand her. Maybe I’ll never be able to stop searching for whatever it was I was supposed to get from her. Even though I know the answer is to find it in myself. But if it’s not in the original imprint, can it ever be found, even if you’ve seen it others and you know what it should be? It’s not quite the same. What to do? What to do?

Poor Alice. Angry me.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Northeast
 

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.
