Nerd of the Year

July 13, 2009 | By More

I really have to appreciate the way Mrs. Nerd puts up with me. I’m quirky, collect toys, read comics, etc… And for the most part she doesn’t complain about it. And for that, I’ve been truly blessed for the last nine years.

She knew what she was getting into, since my screen name has been Engineernerd for as long as I’ve known her. Her on line ego is the Promo Diva (Check out her site ). So I teach her about tech stuff, she schools me on marketing and writing. Well, she tries on the writing. And spelling, engineers are notoriously bad spellers. She’s also trying to break me of double spacing after periods.

Even though she doesn’t complain, she still likes to poke fun at my geekiness when she can. Today she sent me the following, just to remind me I’m her nerd. (Warning: That picture is a number of years old. Think more weight, age, and less hair. A lot less hair. The smile is genuine, cause Mrs. Nerd always makes me smile!)

  1. What a great picture–love that sword! I didn’t know about the fake magazine covers until “Mrs. Nerd” linked me to this post, but I’m headed there next. What fun!

    I’ve long been a fan of your wife’s fine writing, and now I see that you, too, are an entertaining writer with a different take on things. I’m not into some of the topics you cover, but I’ll be reading your musings and comments on SciFi shows in the future.

    Thanks for the compliment! One of the things I’m most excited about with the new site design is the ability to easily post these musings and media reviews.
