I have a confession to make.
Ok, *deep breath*, here goes: I’m a nerd.
It took me a long time to come to terms with it, but it’s who I am. I’m not one of those girls who realizes hipsters and bookworms are having a bit of a moment so I’ll put on a pair of glasses and my favorite lipgloss and announce to all of Instagram and Facebook “o.m.geeee, I am such a nerd”. I’m a genuine reading-for-pleasure, socially-stunted, learning-loving geek. Always have been. I gather and store away information like a squirrel hoards nuts. I recite useless facts at every given opportunity because I fail to realize that not everyone loves to learn as much as I do. The fact that he tolerates this quirk of mine is yet another testament to the amazing patience of Mr. B.
Anyway, the nerd in me was beyond thrilled to get the mail today because this arrived: The Everyday Writer with 2009 MLA Update!!!. Yeah, ok, I know a used textbook isn’t all that exciting to most of the world. But I promise, this is good for you too, my lovely readers. I get the joy of learning where to put commas and whatnot, and you get saved from my tendency to create run-on sentences. See? It’s win-win. You’re welcome.
