For those of you who don’t already know me, I’m kind of a huge nerdatron. Not so much on the technology side (for someone who took her SAT’s in the 6th grade, I am unusually dumb when it comes to technology), but I tend to geek out the most when it comes to stuff like fantasy, pop culture, trivia, science, etc. In fact, it’s one of the reasons why I started Cyber Dating Sidekick in the first place…dorks? You are my people. And I want to see you happy and in love with other dorks (or, as one client recently found, former cheerleaders who can appreciate the Dork inside of you).
And this weekend was unusually epic for Cyber Dating Sidekick in terms of Nerd Love. First, I got to hang out at The Nerdery’s Overnight Website Challenge (#webchallenge) which was basically a mind power explosion of awesomeness. I also found this article on Nerd Love, which got this girl psyched for the upcoming Script Frenzy in April (the script is getting FLIPPED, ya’lls!). Then later that night, myself and few others made a pact to bring back The Geek Prom. In case you’ve never been, it’s like a dream come true for all geek souls (not to mention a super sweet opportunity to meet other super sweet pieces of dorkatron hotness)…but after an unfortunate catastrophe a few years ago involving streaking and pepper spray, it has been solidly stationed in Duluth. Yet an All Hands In Pact was made to bring it back, in some incarnation, to Minneapolis/St.Paul for our local brethren in 2012. First, however, we must organize a field trip to Duluth for this year’s 2011 Geek Prom. THERE’S GOING TO BE AN AIR SUPPLY AIR JAM. Which practically means that the organizers sat down one day and said, “How can we get Amber to come to our prom this year? Oh, by making all of her dreams come true with an AIR SUPPLY AIR JAM.”
And then, in probably the most awesome moment of nerds coming together for the greater good, I learned about this from my friend Mike during our chat at The Profile Party yesterday.
So pretty much it was one of the most amazing weekends ever, you guys. The only thing that could have possibly made it more epic is if if the owners of the DeLorean came and picked me up at my apartment and offered to let me blast Huey Lewis & The News while speeding around mall parking lots in it all night.
