Where were nerd chicks like this when I was in college?

Man. My life would be way different had geek chic been hot when I was in school. Instead, well, it wasn't.

That's OK, I'm not complainin'. My life is pretty OK right now (I hung out with Randi last week! I had dinner with Wil! I'm going to the UK next week to poke around a gazillion dollar particle accelerator!) and I'm happier than I have any right to be.*

Still, sigh. Geek girls are teh hawt.

Speaking of which, someday when I have time I'll talk about how awesome phrases like "geek girl" are. I have a friend who really doesn't like them, but I think they're good stuff. But it can wait for its own post later.

Tip o' the wool cap to the Skepchick Amanda.
