Revenge of the Nerds

October 9, 2007

Lloyd, School

Homecoming week means dress-up days, and every few years we do nerd day. This, of course, begs the question whether I should wear anything different, but I usually do. four years or so ago Tom Guilford bought a tie for me that has a can holder, pen holder, ID badge holder and some other holder that I have yet to identify, but that works reasonably well for glasses. To that I added about a half dozen devices clipped to my belt and the obligatory pocket protector complete with slide rule. Lauren also supplied some attitude glasses that hadn’t been worn since college.

I'm the one in the center

Naturally, there were some who were confused about the social outcast hierarchy and who dressed as dorks, dweebs, nerds and Klingons.

I swear, I did not stage this.

About Lloyd

Lloyd Sommerer is a middle/high school teacher who likes to build websites, read books, grow beards, make fun of Lauren’s prototypes and eat the sauce of the picante.

    It’s like you’ve infected your students. They all look like you. “You will be assimilated… resistance is futile.”

    (Does quoting Star Trek make me a nerd?)

    I’m just glad that when you squatted down for that picture duct tape did not become a necessity…

    Your left arm is crazy wicked long to be able to reach all the way around Hanna D. which makes you Gumby, which makes you really cool!

    What a lovely assortment of nerds! Try taking the Nerd Test @ Nerdtest.com. “I’m not nerdy, but not hip”. I beg to differ. I’m pretty hip.

    I just wasted precious work time taking that test, only to find I’m an Uber Cool Light-Weight Nerd. I don’t think that’s accurate, though, since most of the easily-accessed nerd things in my house are Lloyd’s.
