I've always thought of myself as being smart. Seriously. I'm conceited that way. So, when I was asked to join geek fight, I was all for it. I was a bit nervous but it was all good kinda nervous; not "I'm gonna throw up in your face nervous" but more of "eekkk! I have butterflies in my stomach nervous coz this is gonna be all kinds of awesome."
Boy, was I right and boy was I wrong. It was all kinds of awesome being part of geek night but I realized that I am not as smart as I thought I was. Seriously. I spent the better part of the night going from "huh?" to "eh?" to "WTF is that?" to finally "that exists????" It was a humbling but super funny moment.
I did have my GENIUS and I'm A GEEK YOU FUCKER moment when no one on my team knew the answer to the question, "What is the main resource of District 12 in Panem in the book Hunger Games?" Wheee! Marty, our resident genius threatened to burn an effigy of me if I got it wrong and I was blessed to have been told that I shall live another day when I got the answer right. Take that!
And here are the photos of my night that will be the start of many more Geek Fight!
