Look at That Handsome Bastard!

In case you missed my earlier tweet, I am currently Nerdabout’s "Geek of the Week." Hell yeah I am! This means that I got a nice little plug on Discovery’s Science Channel web site, as well as a certificate suitable for framing.

Okay, I actually made the certificate myself out of construction paper and glitter glue, but that other part is totally true.

I’d really just like to take a moment to thank all the little people who helped me along the way: the fairy folk, the gnomes, Hobbits, the Keebler Elves and the citizens of the bottled city of Kandor. But most importantly I would like to thank the kobolds. Where would I be without their constant moral support and classic Germanic mischief?

In a word: nowhere.

In all serious, though, I would like to thank @sciencechannel and @nerdabout for giving me this most esteemed nod. And I’d also like to thank everyone, regulars and half-interested passersby alike, for checking out the blog and the podcast. You are the wind beneath my wang wings.

Oh, and for the record: yes, that is a picture of me in a gibbet. You know you’re a GeekDad when the only photos you can find of yourself are from your family vacation.

Thanks, Glenn. :)

I thought that picture was a roughed-out Bender costume.

I'm not sure if that is a plus or minus in the geek-cred department.

C'mon, Church, we both know my Bender costume is way farther along than that!
