"Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff.... Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like, jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can't-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they're saying is, 'You like stuff.' Which is just not a good insult at all, like, 'You are just too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.'"
- John Green, as cited by Finslippy
And now I'm stuck on italics and can't turn them off. So apparently I'm a nerd, but the useless kind who's no good at running computers.
