You know, I oftentimes take offense at being called a geek. I know a lot of people take pride in such things. And usually people aren't trying to be mean at all when they say "Wow, you're a fucking geek." But to me, being a geek has a certain unpleasantness about it. I think it's that so many geeks I know have let the works of another solely consume their lives. I guess it's the implication of fanaticism that gets to me. And ultimately I want to be known for what I create rather than what I consume. I know, I know, that this is not the sole definition of being a geek, but I'm just trying to explain why the label leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Anyhow, my ability to claim non-geekedness is pretty much out the window with my most recent discovery.
