Tech Talk

F.Y.I. - I married a geek. Not any type of geek, but a computer geek. And I'm proud of it! As I tell my little cubs, "'Geek' is not a derogatory word in this household, rather it is a term of endearment!" Just think of all the inventions that enable me to write at this moment and who can we thank? Geeks. Cell phones? Geeks. MP3 Players? Geeks. Pretty much all the cool stuff? Geeks again. Face it geeks rule the world! (ok - a bit overstated)

Now, hubby may be a computer geek, but I am NOT. Band geek, perhaps (does twirling a rifle count?), smart geek (no), computer geek (definitely no!) Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not a dumb broad either. I've got a few degrees under my belt, but ya know what? There was no MATH involved! Or science or computer programing for that matter. To me a computer is basically a glorified type writer!

Hopefully, you can see how I might get a bit frustrated at trying to figure out some of the computery things in the cyber world, as I am a blogging newbie. The other day I was on the phone with my hubby trying to understand html, links, and other computer stuff. The next day he tells me that was the best day of his life. . .talking tech with his wife!

LOL!! I love it. And geek is a term of endearment around here as well.

Unfortunately around here, Hubs doesn't get excited about talking tech with me. It infuriates him to no end. And likewise for me.
