Nerds vs Geeks vs Dorks

(In reference to the Authors comment for todays comic)

So anyway, just after going to the movies yesterday (The one I was coerced into going to see if you remember) Stacey, Hayden and I were having this conversation about what the difference between Dorks, Geeks and Nerds was. This is what we came up with;

Nerds: More maths and general smartness related. Stereotypically brainy, etc.

Geeks: There are many types of Geeks. Computer Geeks, Gamers and Comic/Movie/TV Geeks generally cover all of the bases.

Dorks: Clumsy, awkward people, generally shy or simply socially impaired.


Hayden is classed as both a Nerd and a Geek (either a Gerd or a Neek), though mainly he's nerdy (sorry, Hayden, but it's true) and personally I would be classed as a Geek (movies, war-gaming, I have a webcomic, for cryin' out loud!).

That is all. You may go now.

Cruel and Unusual

So, Hayden and Stacey dragged me off to see The Princess and the Frog today (hence the dragging). My excuse is that I was outvoted 3 to 1 (I wanted to see Sherlock Holmes and Stacey already had plans to see it with her sister) and that I was lured in with the promise of sweet, buttery popcorn, rasberry Fanta, and chocolates.

All in all the movie wasn't too bad, though you can tell where Disney've poached fromother movies; observe: It had a) the bad guy from Anastasia; b) The character interaction animation from Mulan; c) The crocodile/aligator from Peter Pan; d) a song very similar to "I wanna be like you" from The Jungle Book; and e) The same/similar character art to the people in Lilo and Stitch. Also, it had some very strange scenes which I swear are not suitable for small children. Every ten minutes or so I thought; "Yeah, that's REALLY not gonna scare small children, is it?" However, it's not too bad, I suppose, so if you're like me and get bribed or gang-pressed into going to see that movie, you shouldn't be too bored...

My holiday escapades are over for the time being. The site hasn't died, so that's always encouraging.


Anyway... carry on...
