lol! I don't think you're a nerd at all. You're too artistic and creative to be a nerd. "Eclectic" would be the word I'd use to describe you....and that's what I love about being your friend.

Why thank you. I love being your friend, too.

I've been reading this book on and off called A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule The Future, by Dan Pink, who also wrote Free Agent Nation. He makes the case that we have progressed beyond the Industrial Age and the Information Age and are now in the Conceptual Age, where left-brain tasks (e.g. accounting, computer programming, etc.) are now being done by computers or people in Asia, and that the future in this country belongs to those who can think conceptually and artistically. You'd enjoy it. Anyway, the point is that I've felt for some time that right-brain thinking is important, and have tried to see things from a conceptual perspective. The person who got me thinking that way was Virginia Postrel, actually; a lot of Pink's ideas sound as though they've come from her writings (most notably The Substance of Style and The Future and Its Enemies, both of which are also highly recommended). Still, my left-brain capabilities still mark me as somewhat of a nerd...
