A quick jaunt over to the interwebs yielded a very interesting query result from Dictionary.com on "geek."
geek (gēk) n.
1. a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp. one who is perceived to be overly intellectual.
2. a computer expert or enthusiast (a term of pride as self-reference, but often considered offensive when used by outsiders.)
3. a carnival performer who performs sensationally morbid or disgusting acts, as biting off the head of a live chicken.
So, I join the esteemed geek ranks of Alice Cooper and Ozzy Osbourne. Strange company I unwittingly find myself keeping with my self-imposed title. Alas, such is the life of "blogger friend."
