A Glimpse of Geek


This past weekend, I spent much of time as many other people around the world spent their time: allowing my inner geek to manifest itself, so I could read the new Harry Potter novel. Yes, I admit it: I’m a Harry fan….the books, the movies…the blow up sex dolls: they all do it for me in that special way that makes your tummy warm, and your nipples hard.

I actually found myself not only anticipating the arrival of said book, but I actually stood at the window from time to time, looking out for delivery trucks bearing names like UPS or Fed-Ex. I bounced on the heels of my feet, and pressed my nose against the glass, hoping that any minute now, the truck would appear on the horizon, and I would have my new book. Even while I was at my neighborhood pool, I kept a constant eye out for any large trucks or post office delivery vehicles that might drive by. Luckily, I had my running shoes safely nearby, should the need for a quick run home arise. It was like Christmas, all morning long.

When I finally received my copy of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , I was happy to the point of jubilation. I spent the rest of the weekend reading, and occasionally doing other things like eating and sleeping to pass the time, during my reading breaks. I’m not going to go all “book report” on you, but I think this is one of the best HP books yet, except for Goblet of Fire.

Anyway, that was my exciting Harry Potter weekend.

-5 hotness points for liking harry potter.

for shame!

Shanshu said...

Sweet! How many points do I have, now? Or, were those my first 5?

da buttah said...

you're at -3.

Shanshu said...

Hmmm. I'll have to get myself in positive figures, then. How am I supposed to meet chicks, with such low figures?

Do I get hotness points for dating cheerleaders?

Pizzle said...

Cheerleaders you created on your computer don't count, dweeb.

;)

da buttah said...

yup. pizzle is right

sorry!

Shanshu said...

Yep, you're right....I like to make up stories, to make myself feel better. It's this thing I do, to contantly lie.

Shanshu said...

Oh, and when did this become a place to bash me?!?! Jesus Christ, this is MY blog and MY place to feel happy and safe, and now people feel the need to call me a fucking dweeb.

FUCK.

da buttah said...

oh i still love you

and no worries..i'm a nerd =0)

Shanshu said...

Thanks! I feel the love in here!

And, I DID date cheerleaders. So I should get a point for that.

:)

Pizzle said...

I know you did...I just like how freaked out about your manhood you get. Just playin', partner.

And now back to my imaginary girlfriend...

Danikabur said...

Can't wait to read more of Harry Potter! The cover on my book is different from yours.

Shanshu said...

pizzle: Don't worry, mate. I will make sure that you get yours, when the timing is ideal.

dani: My HP cover is different than yours? Strange. I heard that the US version has more pages, too. Something about the font they used in the print. Strange. Well, I'm sure you'll enjoy the book!

Danikabur said...

The Canadian version is also printed on recycled paper. :)

Danikabur said...

This page has the Canadian version

Shanshu said...

Weird! That looks so much different, than our version!

Connie said...

I'd like to point out that part of the reason you dated cheeleaders, probably has to do with the fact that you were one yourself. :)

That having been said, I'm sure your faithful readers want to know what school you cheered for. That would be the University of "Kanass"...I mean Kansas. Dare I explain? ;)

Pizzle said...

ZING!

Excellent work, Connie. T-minus 30 seconds before he talks about how it wasn't his fault...

;)

Shanshu said...

I hate you both. Go to your own blogs, and leave mine alone.

Callie said...

Do I get points for being a cheerleader AND being a geek?

Shanshu said...

Yes, you do. I will give you +5 hotness points for being a cheerleader, and a geek.

And +2 more, for wearing no pants in your avatar.

Danikabur said...

Can I get points for being a geek and wanting to be a cheerleader except that my school didn't have cheerleaders and I suck anyway so I wouldn't have been one??
