This is the first time in my life where I think, I might not be nerdy enough. Did you see how many Happy Potter action figures Cassie Mae has purchases. I will give it a try and you should to.
Congratulations to Cassie Mae on the release of her YA Romance novel, How to Date a Nerd. I don’t usually read YA, but I am looking forward to reading this book. I love Cassie’s NA stuff and the premise of this book sounds really
cool nerdy fun.
Now the rules, very nerdy, I know:
Post an answer to this question: What is the nerdiest thing about you?
Post the blog hop picture on your post and on your sidebar.

What is the nerdiest thing about me?
I am a Dallas Cowboys Fan. I have been all my life. I was particularly nerdy about them during the 1997-1998 season. It was two year after the last of their three Super Bowl wins. I went to a total of 12 games that season. All home games and 4 away games (New York, DC, Green Bay & Philadelphia).
Every star on team had a radio or television show in the Dallas market and you could find me in the audience of one or more every week.
I collected every newspaper from the day after each game of that season and kept them in plastic bags.
I have a series of three photos of Troy Aikman during that time:
- The first one is of him waving at me as I took the photo at a radio show.
- The second one is of him at a game
looking in my general directionlooking for me in the stands.
- The third I actually made it in the photo at the opening of a grocery store.
I collected cups, key chains, posters, magazine articles and I have an unusual amount of beer coasters with random Cowboy player autographs on them. I have them all in a trunk in my parents attic marked Cowboy Stuff, Do NOT Throw Away!!!!
And, if that wasn’t nerdy enough, I wrote an entire 30,000 word (approx. I hand wrote it in my journal) manuscript–dialogue only–of an embarrassingly passionate romance between Troy Aikman and some girl named Sydney (It’s not me, I swear. ;-)).
Here’s a short excerpt:“Do you love football more than me?” “No. Do you love being a lawyer more then you love me.” “No, but being a lawyer isn’t my passion, football is yours.” “I have room for more than one passion in my life.” “Oh, Troy.” “I love you, Syd.” “I love you, too.”
*OMG, someone please tell me I’ve gotten better at this.
So, there you have it. Am I a nerd or what? It’s your turn, what is the nerdiest thing about you?
