I have a good excuse, I swear!
Or maybe not. I was in San Diego, where sci fi nerds speak of their love for all things SF only in hushed tones. In spite of Comic Con taking place there every year, few people will acknowledge they know what firefly the insect is, let alone the show.
Nerd guilt. For some reason, the pretty people of CA don't want to acknowledge their geekdom. Maybe they're afraid they'll break out in acne. CA people, there are SF lovers in all walks of life. Don't believe the hype. We are men and women, girls and boys. We come in all shapes and sizes. There are plenty of hot lookin' SF lovers, and your embracing your inner geek will only make you hotter.
Let out your geek love. Come to the dark side. You know what, if you got that, you're already there. ^_^
Do you know anyone with nerd guilt? Is someone you love hiding a hard-on for Doctor Who? Secretly worshiping Captain Mal? Has a shrine to Xena in their closet?
