Geek or what?
I had this moment of insight the other day when Pierre said to me something like, “You know you’re a geek when you have two laptops in front of you and you are using both of it at the same time.” My response at that point in time was something like, “Yeah, you should see me at home with 2 laptops and a desktop, with 3 more in their bags.” We shared a quick laugh over it but as I spring cleaned my desk at home, I realised that, wow, it’s true. If that’s the definition of a geek, I scored big time at it.
Vaibhav was telling me last week that he bought a 46″ Sony LCD TV, I presumed with his annual bonus, and saved the rest for a rainy day. I just realised that for me I blew my bonus at a spanking brand new 2.33 GHz 2GB Ram Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro and then a wireless Mighty Mouse to go with it. I guess there’s no escaping it.
Thinking about it, I checked out the meaning of the word from Wikipedia and without really realising it, yes, oops I did it again.
