Okay, you two need to have a nerd run-off.

I'n not nerdy, I'm intellectual

I like to read the dictionary (both english - and spanish) for fun and learning

I accentuate all words in spanish (most people don't even know how to accentuate)

I write texts so I can improve my ortography and calligraphy

I read National Geographic (subscriber since 2000)

I like to learn phrases in other languages-dialects

Important Note: I don't find the things I enjoy doing as nerdy. The people around me do. To me, it's important to practice and improve and learn as much as you can.

If that makes me a nerd, so be it.

Well my bf calls me a nerd so I must be one but maybe it's because: I wear glasses even though I don't need them, I read all kinds of magazines that come in the mail even if I didn't order them, I always watch the twilight zone and star trek marathons when they come on the sci-fi channel, I know too much about the James Bond series, I read "Great Expectations" for my own entertainment only to be told that you don't really have to read a book like that unless it's a high school assignment, I like to read the dictionary, I love to listen to my bf's remixes of video game music- even listen to it loud in the car (I get funny looks), I go to many video game sites and play many video games and buy many video games and hope to one day go to a multimedia school in Florida to earn a career doing something nerdy.

I'm such a nerd

List of Nerdy things I do
  • I collect coins (I get excited when I see foriegn currency or a rare coin)
  • I crossword puzzles
  • I know more about computers than the people that live around me (but not more than the most of the people here)
  • I have not only one, but two pairs of glasses (one for reading and one for driving)
  • I've watched Star Treck the Next Generation and was actually entertained
  • I love the Outer Limits and the old Twillight Zone
  • I took latin in school and still remember a lot of it (for fun I translated The Iliad)
  • I took place in the state geography bee (thou I pretended not to know an answer so I wouldn't look too smart)

Like others, I know too much about Star Wars. Last time it was on television, I would recite lines of dialogue before they came on screen. My son laughed at the first couple. After the 4th or 5th one, he just punched me on the arm....

I can recite Apollo 13, verbatim, start to finish.

Ditto the Little Mermaird. Ditto The Wizard of Oz.

I use the word 'ditto.'

1. I languages. When I hear people talking in a different language, I eavesdrop and try to figure out which one they're speaking in. If it's English with a foreign accent, I still try guess where the person's originally from.
2. I have geography books and used to know all the capitals of the world.
3. I am taking French for fun and taught myself how to read and write in Russian.
4. I have DVDs of "Friends".
5. I seriously want to know what kind of recording bootlegs are on (audience, soundboard, ALD, those click-track sh*t, etc.).
6. I want to take all sorts of classes right now for fun...if only I had the money.
7. I think I read the whole DVD FAQ online.
8. I can still recite a lot of lines from "The Breakfast Club", "Pretty In Pink" and "Sixteen Candles".
9. I have tapes of the Olympics and used to read about it a lot.

I once took a long bus ride just to watch a hot air balloon race. I wanna get on one this year.

I do all of these too. Especially the accent one. When people at work get a voicemail from someone with an accent, they let me listen to it and I translate and guess where they're from.

Creepy. I think this might be DC culture.
