The Best People

I have an affinity for Hemingway quotes. There are times when he manages to capture a moment or a sentiment in an amazingly striking way.

The problem with Hemingway quotes is that there’s always someone who disputes their authenticity. I’ll be honest with you–it’s been a long day and I’m too tired to do the proper research. I just appreciate this quote.

And I resolve to keep in mind the words of our 16th President.

Just Let Your Geek Flag Fly!


I love this quote!  There’s such freedom in embracing your inner geek-itude. 

So what if I can discuss in minute detail the differences between House Targaryen and House Lannister?  And yes, I can quote lines from Raising Arizona or The Big Lebowski (or practically any other Coen brothers movie). Is it bad that I can recite from memory the dialogue from Python sketches like Dead Parrot or The Spanish Inquisition?  I think not.  Mr. R. finds me hilarious and he shares my weird sense of humor, if not my obsessive love for the Coens or the Pythons.  I’d rather be silly with him any day than try to impress someone by being less than myself.

Being an adult is way overrated, anyway.  What do you say, fellow geeks?
