First off, I swiped the Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test from nnaylime:

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...

Modern, Cool Nerd

83 % Nerd, 52% Geek, 22% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

And secondly, Yuletide signups are open until 9:00 pm US EST, Thursday, November 12th! You do NOT have to have participated in the fandom nomination phase to sign up to write and receive a fic, but if you did participate, better sign up. If anyone has questions about the signup process, let me know!

And in case I didn't say the word enough, SIGNUP SIGNUP SIGNUP SIGNUP SIGNUP!

Well FINE. BE that way then.


No I'm not a Modern, Cool Nerd or no to signing up for Yuletide?

I have a short list and a long list of the things I want to read and that I can write. I played with it, polished it. I could sign up now. I am hesitating. To sign up means to write. There is no defaulting. Can't do that to people. But will I find the time? If in doubt should I not stay out of it?

Well, two points to consider: It's a 1000 word minimum, which I haven't had trouble meeting, and there is in fact a deadline by which you can default without affecting possible future participation in Yuletide. That said, you'd have to decide how you'd feel about defaulting even before that deadline. The choice is of course yours, hon.

Thanks for the advice.

yesterday I filled out the form and entered.
Given the numer of requesters and writers I saw, I've offered to write a few very obscure fandoms.
Eagerly anticipating the assignments now. :)

As Yuletide announced that they will not take the stories offline, even if we begged, I entered under a different name. Up till now I've always wanted to take my stuff offline after a few years. Can't see why that wouldn't change.

Woot! *huggles back*

I always put the whole fandom list through a two-part weeding process. First I remove all those fandoms I've never heard of and/or have no personal interest in reading/watching, plus all those I know I have zero interest in writing, like RPF. Then I go back through and remove all the ones that don't cause at least a tiny "eeeee!" reaction at the thought of getting them as a Yuletide writing assignment. That left me with 42 fandoms, which I offered. ^_^

Waiting to see what is assigned to you will be even more fun that way :D

Lovely icon.
