I received a fantastic email last night. It said simply:
oi m8, r u sum srt ov geek or sumfin?
I don’t really do “text speak” as I was brought up in an age where the English language still actually had some meaning, but I believe the gentleman was enquiring as to whether or not I am a “geek”.
Let me see. I work for a software development company, my best friend writes code in his spare time for fun, I drink real ale, I list Star Wars and Lord of the Rings among my favourite films, Scrubs and Big Bang Theory are my two favourite television shows, I’ve spent the last week designing a new badge and kit for the Sunday League team I am Secretary for, I write for Vital Norwich and I write a Norwich City Football Club blog which is updated usually several times per day. What do you think?
Of course I’m a bl**dy geek! And what’s more, proud of it. 🙂
Now, back to the matter in hand – COME ON YOU YELLOWS!!
