A lot of people said that they saw something Lord Of The Rings themed in the picture, but to my knowledge I don't have anything from that fandom. Do I have random geeky things sneaking their way onto my desk now? Anyone want to fill me in on what it is that's convinced everyone I'm a Hobbit lover?
For those of you who are interested, the four categories of geekdom that you were looking for are as below.
- Doctor Who: Nothing makes hot chocolate taste better than drinking it from a TARDIS mug! And yes, for those of you wondering, it IS bigger on the inside! There's also a wee little picture of the TARDIS in the silver frame, which was what I got out of my cracker two years ago at the work Christmas party. Well, what else was I supposed to do with a one and a half inch frame!
- Nerdfighters: The quote that's printed on that poster is by John Green, one of the founding brothers of Nerdfighteria. It's one that pretty much epitomises what it means to be a geek, and why that's an awesome thing. If you want to read it in it's entirety, you can here.
- Harry Potter: Yep, I have a wand. I like to pull it out when someone asks me to do something impossible and tell that that I'll get right on it as soon as I remember the spell to perform miracles. Also, it's very handy for pointing to things on the computer screen.
- Star Trek: That mouse mat was a gift from a friend years ago. Although you can only sort of see it, I'm photoshopped into the picture standing next to Tuvok. There's also a very small group shot of them in the purple frame, but I thought that was probably too small for anyone to make out.
Yeah, I know. That's an awful lot of pure geek for one desk, but what can I say. I'm hard core.
