Yup, still a member of the Overthinkers' Club

See, when something bugs and niggles at me, I can never let it go. Even when I try to.

This is why that Valentine's Day-esque holiday in "Second Day Chocolate" now has a name: "Tryanur."

And where did such a wacky looking name come from? Why, Sanskrit! It's from the the word "tryah" (three) and "anura-", the root for "love."

Why Sanskrit of all things? Because this kind of holiday has the Cetra written all over it, and the name of the City of the Ancients given in AC was "Ajit," and that's a word derived from Sanskrit meaning "invincible" ('ajita', and yes, my wiki-fu is strong.)

I accept my loserdom and revel it in, yo. And I need to make myself a "Loser" icon or something...

ETA: I took a Nerd-Geek-Dork Quiz. Note the language of newspaper the guy in the pic reading. >XD;;

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...

Pure Nerd

65 % Nerd, 48% Geek, 39% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.

Congratulations!
