Yeah, dammit, I'll get back to nursing later. It's Spring.

Last night I let my Geek Flag fly, and lo, it was good.

Somehow, a group of coworkers who are not at all nerdy decided to all come along to a definitely nerd-focused event at a local museum. Among them was The Cute Neurosurgeon, who paid me the biggest compliment I think I've ever gotten:

As I was listing titles of hard SF books I like, he yanked out his cell phone. He was noting down titles, like Asimov's Before The Golden Age. The Cute Neurosurgeon was taking interest in what I like to read, guys.

Just looking that sentence makes me nod my head, smile, and think about ordering that Starfleet uniform tunic (Science Officer, of course). Although a Security tunic would allow me to leave a party early without anybody noticing or caring....

Dude, that sounds very promising with the cute neurosurgeon. You go girl- geeky boys are the best and the only way to go. Have fun!

Springtime--sap rising, grass growing, buds popping out of green stalks, meaningful interchanges.... what’s not to like

Are we talking TOS science officer blue or TNG an onwards gold ??? Anyhow, I doubt you could ever pass for a red shirt ;-)

Haven't read Asimov's BTGA in over 20 years, which is too long.

Get that uniform if you want it.

Spring is coming, and that's when the thoughts of all young people turn to... sci-fi and neurology.

Heh.

LOL - now all you need to do is ask Cute Neuro MD dude if he was able to find the book and offer to loan him yours ; )

And I'll wear the tunic right along with you, I came to terms with my inner geek long ago......
