My Nerd Love Rawks the House!

Tuesday, January 27, 2009
I can't tell you how tickled I am that my Nerd Love, Neil deGrasse Tyson, rawked the house at the Union Square Barnes and Noble to the point where Gawker was going WTF?*

Evidently, mobbing a scientist who writes books about, you know, science, is inconceivable to the folks who fawn over Paris Hilton's banal utterances.

::snort::chuckle::hee::

That's my Nerd Love, baby. Go science!


*No, I don't read Gawker. Lay down the crack pipe. I learned about this from the Incomparable Rebecca™ over at SkepChick.

Gawker is a snark site. East Coast not-so-nice snark. I read it occassionally. Their sister site, Jezebel, is the good one (for the laydeez, that is). I looked at the Gawker post and that is about the tone of their articles. If it isn't about their little town items (Manhattan), then no interest. They seem to be wrapped up in some kind of banking problems or something there....

Here I was, all happy and ready to read whatever you had to say about me--and I find out your fickle affections have been transferred to some astronomer-dude who's probably only worked on, like, maybe zero independent horror shorts about zombies. If Neil deGas is so awesome, how come he's only on PBS and maybe some of the basic cable channels like TDC? Huh? PBS is such a loser channel they have to beg for handouts on the air--I'll bet your new boyfriend has to pay to pay them to talk about black holes and stuff. (If I was going to pay somebody to talk about something, at least I'd talk about vampires or ninjas or Star Wars or giant robots... or maybe even all of the above--like, who'd win in a fight between a vampire jedi and a giant robot ninja?)

Dejectedly and bitterly yrs, etc.

Tsk, tsk, Eric. Such bitterness is most unbecoming.

Neil deGrasse Tyson has been my Science Nerd Love for many, many years, and my celebrity boyfriend.

You're my Legal Nerd Love, but not my celebrity boyfriend.

Because I can't actually know my celebrity boyfriends. That's just stalkerish and creepy.

Root out your jealousy, and set yourself FREE.

I enjoy Jezebel. And we must remember that io9 gave Eric (Legal Nerd Love) a shout on for his PK Dick piece. So the folks at Gawker media aren't totally without merit.
