"Verbating My Nouns"

Comic Type: Gaming News | Posted: Friday August 5th, 2011 by Woody - [ Size: 600x800 ]
As some of you know, I've started doing reviews to up the amount of content on GU. And, well, to get free stuff. Well some of the providers I was working with didn't really understand my not having a blog and the reviews only existing in the forums. So, I decided to dedicate a part of the site to GU Reviews. I wanted to make it look like a simple blog, but I also wanted to use the forums as my CMS, because installing wordpress to accomplish such a simple task can suck it.

Well, last night as I was reading gaming news in preparation for today's comic, I got a random text from Taks saying simply, "I like the reviews site". I said thanks and then went on a nerdy bender, coughing up -unasked- a tremendous amount of fairly useless information. Sure it was nice to get it out of my face. But, there was no real point in it. I knew without seeing it that her eyes had glossed over and she was looking for an out. It's okay, when I nerd, I half expect this kind of response. I don't hold it against anyone and I know for a fact that I do it when someone else starts rambling on about something that excites them. I try to be a good listener, but sometimes the maintenance man walks by and turns off my mental lightswitch. I check out and start thinking about turning my Sphero into a motorized Tribble or some other dumb thing.

If you ever meet me and I do it to you, please don't be offended. Just point it out, I will apologize and refocus. Make sure to ask what I was thinking about though. The answer will likely amuse us both.

That in mind, what do you most frequently nerd out about?
