It's great to be a nerd...

...so say The Arrogant Worms, and I totally agree. But then, I would agree, wouldn't I? Seeing that I'm a Slightly Dorky High Nerd, after all!

Set free your inner nerd!

Rejoice in your nerdiness!!

Let's all sing together: "it's great to be a nerd, it's great to be a nerd..."

So funny...although I must say I'm not into comic books or internet connections, I do like Shakespeare as much as Tolkien, and downloading naked pictures of Scully doesn't interest me in the least (Mulder on the other hand...now that's a different story! lol) I don't own a Star Trek uniform, but I'm sure you won't be surprised to know that I have been know to yell "I'M CAPTAIN KIRK!!!" at the top of my lungs from time to time.

LYRICS...for those of you nerdy enough to read song lyrics (ahem...that would be me...)

It's great to be a nerd, It's great to be a nerd
The only light we ever see is from our moniter

We argue about comic books and Internet connections
The biggest highlight of the year is the Star Trek Convention
Our town's not big enough to sign up any stars
But we once met a red shirt who was phasered by a Borg
(Man, he knew Mr. Sulu!) (What?)

It's great to be a nerd, It's great to be a nerd
We wear our Star Trek uniforms and talk like Captain Kirk

We have our own heroes who we try to emulate
I dream of one day being as sexy as Bill Gates
We hate watching sports 'cause we're reading Carl Sagan
But we'd watch the Olympics if they played Dungeons and Dragons
(I'm a Hobbitt! Ha ha ha ha!)

It's great to be a nerd, It's great to be a nerd
We think Tolkein was a genius and Shakespeare was a turd

We rarely get a date or get talked to by a girl
Unless they're having trouble with their algebra homework
We're emotionally bereft and we're sexually frustrated
But we can download photographs of Agent Scully naked

It's great to be a nerd, It's great to be a nerd
We know the truth is out there but we'd have to leave our room

We are the nerds in your neighbourhood
Polyester's a fashion statement
But there's more room on the beach for you
'Cause we're locked in our basement

It's great to be a nerd, It's great to be a nerd
We like to wear colours that do not appear in nature

It's great to be a
Poorly-dressed fashionless
Star trekking roleplaying
Ninety pound when wet down
Pasty skinned pop drinking
Underfed genius
Yes, it's great to be a nerd

Hi Anne, that's a very cool video. Nerds rule! Thanks for sharing and have a great day today.


Hey Kathy, glad you liked it! The Worms are awesome :) Enjoy your day too!

Cute song!! Are they from Canada?

Crazy long days at work as the new semester begins. Finally catching up with everyone once again.


girasoli, they are indeed Canadian! Hope your days are smoothing out. We are on the brink of a school bus strike, which will start tomorrow unless a last minute deal is reached today. Ugh, that will be painful for us, since M's school is in the opposite direction of our offices, plus our work hours are different from her school hours, so having to drive her to and fro will really mess up our schedules. Thankfully we can both work from home to some extent, if need be. But praying for a settlement today!!
