The Nerd Gets a Package

Posted on

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.
