Geek Capitol of the World

Hi folks! Ready for an important announcement of "Geek of the Week" award?  Yep, your truly won hands down! Quite an honor for a former motorcycle gang type fashion/tattoo look to a conservative, mono colored appearance kind of gal. Why the huge change?  I don't know - maybe I love boring myself to death or something. Look, geeks/nerds EXIST plain as that.  I don't know much about what they do but they are brainy. In high school while I was doing my cool stuff like baton twirling, they were burning the midnight oil studing how living things moved - too high tech even to pronounce the words. At this point of my life I have become immersed in technology - like how to use one of those new-fangled phones. Just press the "call" button when wanting to make a call. God was that hard or what? With all of the great advances in Japan (tagged as the geek capitol of the world especially because of the anime boom I imagine),  these guys are running amuck all over the place. So what happened to all the dopier ones? The party animals are dead. Can't chill anymore - and that why I migrated into this group. No more telling my joke about the factory that makes novelities such as whoopee cushions and plastic dog doo. That's what I'll miss the most I think.  My new friends force me to use my noggin and that could be risky. It  opened up a can of worms as they say. Now my smarty- pants friends have led me to become vocal in political issues here. I'm anti everything.  Ban the nukes!!           See you again,  Mountain Mama Japan
