Geeks are my favorite people in the whole world... seriously.

I left a reply on the MPR page, but here (if you're interested), is my love letter to geeks (Which I wrote about 6 weeks ago -- and which is a lot longer than 1500 characters): http://capriuni.livejournal.com/656482.html

Another thing: some people call it "escapism" (i.e., "bad") to read LOTR, but these same people don't blink an eyelash at those who fly to Aruba to sit on the beach while a (shirtless Spaniard named Ramon/38-24-36 bikini-clad waitress named Bambi/take your pick) serves them margueritas. That's not "escapism"? Or "fantasy"?
