Re: You Know You're a SF/Fantasy Geek When...

You talk about your toons from an MMORPG like they are close friends of yours

 

Your tweenage crush was Jareth from Labyrinth

 

You would much rather ride to work on a "noble steed" than in a car

Oh yes, he was wonderful in the movie!

 

What if you call your car the "noble steed"?

 

How about waiting for you "knight in shinning armor" to come to you rescue & sweep you off your feet...

Re: You Know You're a SF/Fantasy Geek When...

When you make a cake of Discworld

When you spend your whole day explaining why there is a disc sitting on 4 elephants on the back of a giant sea turtle

When, the next day, you make a cake for your friend that is the One ring (from Lord of the Rings)

WOW!! Those cakes look great.  The one of the disc world is really amazing.  How did you do the elephants.  That is really cool.  Looks like it would be a lot of work.

I do love Ace of Cakes and the food network cake challenges. But they make it look way easier than it is.

Oh you guy's will get a chuckle.

Went to the plant store today and had the attendant literally rolling laughing when he asked me how he could assist an I in prefect tone chimed "WE must have a shrubbery!" Since it really was what I came to buy, I couldn't resist.

 

 


That IS funny!! Can't say I would have thought of it in time to use it. Would've come to me 5 minutes after leaving *Doh!*
