Good Geek! (A to Z = G)

Can you believe we're on week two of the A to Z Challenge already? Have you been having a blast? I know I have. But it also occured to me this morning that there will so many incredible posts I won't see because of the number of bloggers taking part. That thought made me a little sad.

Now, on to this week's Friday Five and geeks.


My friends, I will let you in on a little secret - at school I was a geek. Now my family would probably argue I still am a geek and that's okay, but on the geekiness scale I scored far higher at school.

Below are five pieces of geek-proving evidence. One of them is a lie. Can you guess which one?

1. I was in Q maths at secondary school. Q maths was for students with exceptional mathematical ability.

2. My best friend and I preferred knitting to going out.

3. My first crush was on James T. Kirk.

4. I once made a model of the Starship Enterprise with cardboard and stickyback plastic.

5. I learnt how to draw a model of a nuclear reactor in case it came up in my physics exam.

So, which is the lie?

Don't forget to enter my 300 Followers Competition.

  1. From one geek to another, I hope it is number 2! I am having a blast as well and actually I am a bit sad this competition is going so fast.

  2. I'm going to guess that 4 is the lie. I know I should say 3, but there is something about Shatner. . .

  3. I say 3 is a lie. I think there was typo in the bible, it should have said The geeks shall inherit the earth.

  5. Steven Chapman - I'm hanging my head in shame because the missing S was a typo. You can stay with your guess or change it if you want. Hehehehe.

  11. ha! I'm guessing number three :o) PS: Adore that DOLL!!!! I want one!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ohh my word, it has to be the knitting one, you seem far too much fun to want to stay in knitting when you were younger! Or maybe that just the rouse you wants us to think.... Hmmm I'm muddled now.

  13. Er... no.4? You'd have made a model enterprise out of aluminium, metal, glass and a combustion engine!! While knitting!! Yay! take care

  14. This is hard! Maybe #5, but just because the first 4 seem plausible.
    I know what you mean about not getting to everyone's blog. For me, it's because I've already found new daily favorites and you're one of them!

  15. One of these things is not like the others,
    one of these things, doesn't belong
    can you guess which thing is not like the others
    by the time I finish this song?
    Dodeedo do do doo......
    It's #2. (I think you still love Shatner!)
    Or I'm wrong - great g post!
    Happy G day.

  16. OMGosh, I hope none of them is the lie.

    A total guess: Number Five.

    Puuuuleeeezzz don't tell me the crush is the lie.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'll say number two ... knitting? Come one. And I'm still kinda a geek too. Snort. See what I mean?

    ReplyDelete
  18. #2? You don't seem like a knitter...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hmmm- I'll go with number 5 just because I can. Have a great Friday!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think it is number 5 there is no way you are that good of a geek!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think #3 ... I bet your first crush was on some cute little 5th grader! I know what you mean about A-Z; it's success makes it harder in other ways.

  22. james t kirk or t j hooker... a jumbled lettering now he was the captain in both shows... hmmmm

  23. Hi Ellie .. I'm going with (2) .. as you were expressing horror at not being able to get to the beach today .. lovely day isn't it!! Cheers Hilary

  24. I'm guessing the lie is #1.

    At least I hope it is because math is horrible - my #1 enemy for life - and any friend of my enemy is... well... (Think I'll stop commenting now.)

  25. I would guess the crush on Kirk is the lie. Any geek worth their salt had a crush on Spock!

  26. Well, I'm a knitter, so I'm going with #5! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I've missed talking to you, but it looks like you're keeping busy with the A - Z posts. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, these are so fun. I am going to say #2--knitting. Don't know why. Maybe b/c it seems so out of place with Star Trek and math.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think it has to be #5...yup...wait...yeah, that's it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I appreciate it!

  29. Visiting from the A-Z challenge and it looks like I came in at the right time! My guess is #2, knitting. Was it really crocheting?! :)

    Viva la geeks!

  30. As a fellow geek, I'm guessing the knitting one!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm ging with #5.

    As for the Star Trek references, Vulcans came up in conversation with my children the other day. None of them, not one of the four, knew what a Vulcan is or has ever heard of Mr. Spock. It doesn't speak well for my parenting skills, but the fact that I was apalled probably means I've been a geek, too, somewhere along the way.

  32. A geek! Not YOU!!! :D *snort* ... Okay, just kidding. But I'm guessing the one about knitting is the lie.

    And what a cute geek doll! Lurv the accessories. :o) <3

  33. It has got to be #2. Even geeks like guys. Hmmm, great book title there. *wink*

    Love the pic. Great A-Z post. Following you back, cuz I love geeky folks. hehe

  34. Hard to choose. I'm going to go with #2.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I too feel like #2 doesn't go. I think you and your best friend went out looking for geek guys. In the words of a great Vulcan, "It's logical."

  36. I'm going with number three. Love the doll by the way!
