This Just In

My sister is a HUGE geek. I mean, all my sisters are verging on serious geekhood, and we're all movie fans, but I just found out yesterday that one of them is officially a TWILIGHTER! I found this to be remarkable news. I myself have not read the Twilight books, nor have I seen the movie, though I will now in order to have a little mini symposium with her.

She reminded me of myself in my early geek days. Nervous, saying things like, "Don't tell anyone, but..." and, "I tried to hide it, but....". To which I responded, "Don't hide it!" I told her my philosophy about how everyone has a geek flag, and you should just fly yours. (I got that from, "The Family Stone" and just replaced "freak" with "geek". It spoke to me.)

She has seen the movie 7 times, breaking my personal best of 4 times in a theater for some of the Harry Potter films, Elf, Pirates of the Carribean: Curse of the Black Pearl, Tomb Raider, Runaway Bride, and Enough. (2002 was a very boring summer, okay?) Oh, how I wish that we had a dollar theater around here!

Anyway, I just thought this was really wonderful news. Let's welcome her to the fold, shall we? Everybody do a little golf clap for my sister and let's all encourage our family members to follow their nerdy inclinations this year. It will make the world a better place.
