smackshack: a crude digital self-portrait (oneself in purple)
On the 14th I'll be 42. When I turned forty I thought "Meh, no biggie. After all, 42 is the number that counts." But now 42 is coming, and I feel like I should have some major bit of geekitude to show for it. But instead I keep thinking about how Douglas Adams died while in the middle of a workout, trying to get fit and lose weight, which is more or less what I'm doing every day right now.

Minus the heart attack.

So far.

(I mean...I'm a huge fan and all, but there are limits.)

Anyway, my life is infused with totems of nerdery. I thought about being counter-intuitive, putting down the Charles Stross and the Rudy Rucker, and picking up Jane Austen or Emily Bronte instead. But even then I can't escape the nerdery because of the zombies. Even if I read the books pre-zombie, the zombies are now forever there in the meta-text, or something.

So...what's a nerd to do?
