Nerd anecdotes

You know you're a huge nerd when you can say "So do I need to bring my lightsabers* to D&D tonight?" with a straight face.

You know you're a huge linguistics nerd when, having just returned from purchasing both a shiny new copy of Dragon Age: Awakenings and a shiny new copy of Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf, you go for the Anglo-Saxon epic poetry first.
Granted, the entire story in Dragon Age exists in the literary tradition that Beowulf is pretty much the granddaddy of. So yeah.

*Firefox dictionary doesn't recognize "lightsaber"? For shame, Firefox.
