this weekend i was supremely lucky to see two talented geek-chicas, the doubleclicks play at the offices of thinkgeek and at a friends house. i hadn't seen them since the boat trip and it was a perfect opportunity to see some of the folks i met on the boat and let my geekness out for a walk. thoooooough, when it comes out, it's more of a hyper size year old at lego land after consuming mass quantities of diet coke, pop tarts and speed. my brain shifts out of "hello, i have a big girl 9 to 5 job that requires me to say the words 'paradigm' and 'budgetary restraint' at least 4 times a day" into this epicly filter-less conversarhea of movie references and geektacular joy. that part of my brain that remembers every word of space balls broke free of its restraints and began to consume all of the creative and nerd and fun and silly. it was a feeding frenzy when the minutiae of buffy's choices in men in the 90's was merely for plot device or actually integral to the story. that part of my brain that i adore had been on a diet since the cruise, so it just went coo-coo for geeky puffs, i wanted everyone ounce of the geek go-go juice and after two nights, a wondrous haze fell over me, like a food coma, but with geek: geek coma. it's a lot like the geek coma you have after a long night of guild wars only from being around real people who couldn't conger a tiny minion with +20 conditions.
