"Nerd" vs "Geek"
This reminded me of an argument I once had regarding "nerd" vs "geek" definitions. Dictionary.com actually seems to support part of the conclusion we arrived at. Nerd is more derogatory and relates to one who is "foolish, inept, or unattractive". More importantly, certainly with relation to our dinners, it adds "socially inept"!
The "geek" definition though, is quite off. Dictionary.com lists the same definitions as nerd, but adds "A carnival performer whose show consists of bizarre acts, such as biting the head off a live chicken." Definitely waaaay off (I'm sure ThinkGeek would agree). At least this one has something to do with food though...
What we came up with all those months ago was that a nerd is more "inept" whereas a geek is more of an aficionado, as in computer geek. Anyway, that's my humble opinion.
Whatever your view, come and join us for some dinner.
