Straight out of Lynwood: White & Nerdy.

I read this article today linked off the New York Times.

Fair warning: this is long. And cynical, even for the Queen of Cynicism (or so I'm told).

Anyway, I don't think I realized how nerdy I was in high school until long after. It probably caused me a lot of angst at the time, but once I got older I kind of forgot. After all, life got pretty comfortable, and I could hardly care what happened to who after high school (I heard a lot of things about working at local restaurants).

Also, I'd add that nerds are not interested in people who only talk to them for some ulterior purpose.
