    When, instead of getting angry at someone for posting something ,(that may perhaps be really funny or truly interesting or deeply philosophical),that you cannot read/understand, you instead are angry at yourself because you wish you had studied the unknown language.

You REALLY know you are . . . something . . . when, contrary to everything you have believed and despite your assumed status as a certifiable, bonafide WORD NERD, you read these accounts of others' nerdery, and you begin, just a little, to doubt . . .

. . . can it be that I am not nerdy ENOUGH?

It could be a nerdological impairment!
How would I know?
Is it time for an philological-existential crisis?
If so, which language shall I have it in?

At any rate, at the end of this thread--should that time arrive--maybe we will elect the OVERNERD!

(a post of great honor, no doubt!)



THIS THREAD MIGHT END!!! You know what you are when the thought of this thread ending makes you really sad..no, depressed.

When you are excited at the prospect of missing school later this week due to snow because you could have the whole day to study Spanish...
It's not like I could try to drive anywhere anyway, I've not even had my license for 6 months, I wouldn't try driving in the snow.
But still, when I first heard we might have school canceled, I was excited because I could spend the whole day studying Spanish, before I realized there wasn't much else I could do anyway.

Edit: We do have snow, school hasn't been cancelled but probably will be Monday and we are more or less snowed in all weekend.
