You know you live with a geek if...

  • You understand that "weird" is relative.  (And they can be disowned.)
  • For any given situation there is a Star Wars quote that applies.
  • For any given situation where a Star Wars quote doesn't really apply, there is a Star Trek quote that will.
  • Graphic novels are really just comic books.  (But don't ever call them that out loud.)
  • A Pez dispenser collection is an inexpensive and viable way to get your geek on.
  • You can threaten to withhold marital favors legally in a game of Dungeons and Dragons.
  • If you do apply the above, you can also be rightfully accused of metagaming.
  • You're very sad because you know what metagaming is.
  • Posting an XKCD comic on your blog should really have been more traumatizing than it was.
  • You have to admit you don't always understand the XKCD comic because its slanted for math and science.
  • You then have to admit you understand more of the XKCD math and science comics than you're really comfortable admitting.
  • You had to veto the Periodic Table shower curtain because you just knew there'd end up being tests.  In the morning.  While you showered.
  • Any song in the known universe can be conjured at will for parody amusement.
  • 99.99% of the time that song parody will include a lyric about bacon.
  • Subsequently, 100% of the time you will tend to sing the bacon lyric rather than the real lyric.
  • You know which of the Star Trek actors have also released musical recordings.
  • You own those musical recordings.
  • You have a phone app for Magic the Gathering.
  • You also have a software program installed for keeping an inventory of your Magic the Gathering cards.
  • You realize you have an inordinate amount of Magic the Gathering cards.
  • That realization doesn't stop you from buying more.
  • Action and/or superhero figures are acceptable gifts for romantic occasions.
  • Unicornszombies and plush toys are also acceptable gifts for romantic occasions.
  • You know ALL the references in the Geek and Gamer girls song.  And you're supposedly not the geek in the household.
  • You know all the words to the Geek and Gamer girls song.
  • You post the song on your blog.
