So who doesn’t love them some geeks? Big Bang Theory? Sheldon?
Some of my favorite Sheldon quote? (and this was so freaking hard to narrow down to just a few. This character has me cracking up in every episode.) I’ll start off with the most recognized Sheldon quote: Bazinga! (For shame to those of you who didn't get that)
Sheldon: Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.--Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory
Raj: I don't like bugs, okay. They freak me out.
Sheldon: Interesting. You're afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic. (I crack up just reading this.)
Sheldon: They stole everything Leonard, everything!
Police officer: Are you the roommate?
Leonard: Yeah, Leonard Hofstadter. What's going on?
Police officer: Your friend here called 911 to report a robbery.
Leonard: Oh my God. What did they get?
Sheldon: What didn't they get? They got My Enchanted Weapons, My Vicious Gladiator Armor, My Wand Of Untainted Power, and all my gold!
Leonard: You called the police because someone hacked your World Of Warcraft account?
Sheldon: What choice did I have? The Mighty Sheldor Level 85 Blood Elf, Hero Of The Eastern Kingdoms as been picked clean like a carcass in the desert sun... plus the FBI hung up on me.
*Snort* I personally think The Big Bang Theory is one of the best sitcoms on TV. I love all the geek references made. I have friends from every realm of geekdom: comic books, superheroes, computer games (WOW, anyone?), classic pen and paper, Rock Band, and roleplaying. I know people who are apart of the SCA (for those who don’t know what that is, it’s the Society of Creative Anachronism, which I think is so freaking cool). My ex-hubs was heavily into this before we got married. He has some awesome stories. Anyway, I digress, I think the way Big Bang covers all of these realms is why I love the show so much (FYI, I would totally date Leonard. I think he is adorable).
My years of being around the geek scene helped with writing Defying Convention, but also being an outsider (at first) helped to write my heroine who was far outside her element. I remember being at my first con and just staring. It was so hard to digest everything going on around me, because there was SO much going on around me. You see, I wasn’t a geek, but I married one. Think of it kind of like Penny and Leonard (though Penny is way hotter than me, lol). So my first con had a definite shock value to it.
So what kind of television show/book/movie speaks to an inner you?
Thought I would share a few pics from the con I attended:
