“Wreck Of The Day” – Anna Nalick

Driving away from the wreck of the day
And the light’s always red in the rear-view
Desperately close to a coffin of hope
I’d cheat destiny just to be near you
If this is giving up, then I’m giving up
If this is giving up, then I’m giving up, giving up
On love, On love

Driving away from the wreck of the day
And I’m thinking ’bout calling on Jesus
‘Cuz love doesn’t hurt so I know I’m not falling in love
I’m just falling to pieces
And if this is giving up then I’m giving up
If this is giving up then I’m giving up, giving up
On love, On love

Maybe I’m not up for being a victim of love
All my resistance will never be distance enough

Driving away from the wreck of the day
And it’s finally quiet in my head
Driving alone, finally on my way home to the comfort of my bed
And if this is giving up, then I’m giving up
If this is giving up, then I’m giving up, giving up
On love, On love

Musings From Dane Cook

So, Dane Cook has a joke on one of his Retalion CDs about how in every group of friends, there is one NOBODY likes. (For simplicity’s sake, he uses the name KAREN). Karen is a “douchebag.” No one likes her. They just put up with her. They make fun of her when she’s not around, but they’re nice to her face.

Most people in the crowd agreed and laughed. But then he said the people who were disagreeing–THEY were the ones nobody liked!

I can’t think of anyone in my circle of friends who is the KAREN. So does that mean it’s me?

ETA: I’m not having a crisis or anything–I’m just curious!!!!

Nerd? Geek? Dork?


Modern, Cool Nerd
73 % Nerd, 56% Geek, 21% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t used to be cool, but in the ’90s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd” is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
