Who is the Bigger N-rd?

Many life changing conclusions were reached this weekend- like Rock the Kasbah being the most overly and incorrectly used song in MashUps. It is a great song, but there are only a few songs with which it meshes well with. There were many great and exciting things that happened...

Well.
It has finally come to the point where I need to assess my n-rdliness once again.
We've always known I was a closet geek, I'm so anti-anti-establishment that it's scary.

I've got my little friend the sitemeter. He tells me who has visited the site, what time, from where, what pages they looked at, the referrals, the outclicks. It's fantastic. It's like a snitch who is totally honest with you. There is nothing you need to question.
(I should also admit at this point that I know, with confidence, both HughJazz's and Dating Master's IP addresses, so look out...)

Having said that, I'm a geek that I look at the sitemeter. But, if I hadn't then I wouldn't know about BlogShares and other cool stuff.
Well, whatever...
The other week, when I played in that SBS Soccer comp, we played these guys who have their own reality TV show- N-rds FC. I blogged it of course. And yes, I now have to take out the letter e from all my entries because they found my blog, by typing into google "N-rds FC awesome".

Now I certainly didn't say they were awesome, but awesome does appear in my blog somewhere along the lines (oooh, what a great pun?!).

They left comments on the blog and they have been telling their little friends to google me with the same search string. Not only that, but they were looking at the blog for a considerable amount of time. They even looked at my flickr page...

I'm fully aware that my blog is public, but if it's a friend of a friend checking me out, sweet I say. But if you're a random n-rd who happens to have a reality TV show- STOP stalking me!

So the question does remain- Who is the bigger n-rd?
  • Them, because they are n-rds and they are googling n-rds fc awesome into google?
OR
  • Me, because I know exactly when, why and how they're googling me?!



Also Mazels to those out there that got engaged this weekend. Plus I'll put photos of Diana's birthday up here soon...

Hate to break it to you, but clearly you are the bigger n-rd in this instance. I think you should embrace your n-rdiness. There's something very cool in self acknowdgement of your n-rdiness. Like Tarantino, or Woody Allen or that guy in American Splendor. N-rd is the new black.

Ummm. I clearly do embrace my n-rdliness.
And thanks for dashing!

Poor N-rds FC - they can't even win in the n-rd stakes...

Nick said...

My google powers are so awesome they defeat even your dash of doom!

Eb said...

Nick, I believe you've just answered the original question...

I accidentally started watching this the other night when they hade full make overs and WOW - just goes to show!

Eb said...

So, I watched Nerds FC the other night and they had make-overs. I'm a huge fan of make-over shows, however, they managed to come out the other end of it still looking like nerds...
