We just finished the nightly”must see” in our house this summer: Good Eats followed by Unwrapped. My kids absolutely adore Alton Brown. He’s silly, he incorporates science into his shows, and he’s a great, inventive cook. I have no idea where the love of Unwrapped came from (I mean, it’s just tours of factories over and over), but it’s acheived cult status in my household.
Now we are watching the Mythbusters episode we DVRd last night. My family just cannot live without Jamie (Zaphod’s favorite), Adam (Lintilla’s favorite), Grant, (Trillian’s favorite), Tory (Who we all love for his silliness),and Kari (my favorite, I wonder why?); sometimes they feel like members of the family. Irreverent geeks…yeah, they’d fit in. And they love to blow stuff up, which is always a good treat.
Tomorrow, I’ll try to post a photo of four laptops, lined up just like the hundreds are Microsoft Tech Ed, which, sadly, I had to miss this year because of departmental budget cuts.
Considering the way things have been lately, I’d better add the disclaimer that “Geek” is a term of endearment for me. Ask my children the difference between nerds and geeks, and they’ll tell you: “geeks get things done”.
