Geek Quiz

When I saw this I thought I had to be home free:

"3) Vocabulary: Have you ever used "Poly" in casual conversation?"

</td><td valign="top">You are a geek. Good for you! Considering the endless complexity of the universe, as well as whatever discipline you happen to be most interested in, you'll never be bored as long as you have a good book store, a net connection, and thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment. Assuming you're a technical geek, you'll be able to afford it, too. If you're not a technical geek, you're geek enough to mate with a technical geek and thereby get the needed dough. Dating tip: Don't date a geek of the same persuasion as you. You'll constantly try to out-geek the other.</td></tr>
You are 51% geek

I am severely concerned that I rank so much lower than fairestcat. I mean, she's got 2 computers in her entire house, and I have 2 in my dorm room, and 3 more waiting to be moved...

I'm lucky

I owe my family $29.51 for my cell phone calls in Canada. I feel remarkably relieved, because I was worried it might be as much as twice that much. So that's all cool, although I still need to find out how much I owe for the hostel, rental car, etc. Still, it seems I was able to afford the trip after all.

This is not cool

It appears one of my friends down in Corpus has picked up nearly a stalker. He's been camping about on campus waiting for her in various places. I've been advising her to ask for help from those gentlepersons usually attired in blue, and it looks like she's getting closer to taking my advice. "One more phone call and I'll do it".

It's frustrating, because while I'm pretty sure she's in no real danger, what with all the people about in a dorm, her usual complement of common sense, a locking door, etc. But the fact that this has been going on for a couple hours and that there's nothing I can offer besides advice is very grating on me.

I'll put a reply on here when this gets resolved, in case anybody worries.
