    I'm trying to think of something but nope I've been pretty normal.

    I guess I flew half way across the country then went on a 14 hour road trip to hang out in canada and drink with internet people?? But that was fucking awesome and also they weren't weird SO WHATEVER

    I would write tiny cryptic messages on incredibly small pieces of paper and slip them into her jacket pocket when she left her desk

    example: apple = star wars

    you see, apples have cores. That means they are core-y. Like Cory. Her current boyfriend.

    And star wars, well, it was all about The Force. Which sounds like divorce.

    Therefore, Cory equals Divorce. Simple.

    She'd obviously see the logic and dump him and then she would go out with me and we would have a million sexes.
    holy shit

    and now we know how the riddler was born

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    I was once got so addicted to Animal Crossing DS I started playing it in the middle of a play.

    A play that I was acting in.

    A play taking place during the early 1900s.

    Edit: Holy shit Rank.

    I don't like to differentiate between my pathetic geek stories and my pathetic stories. It puts too much of a skew on my being a sad fucker.

    in middle school I had a paperback copy of the hobbit, which had text in runes running along the borders of the front and back cover which could be easily translated to english

    I did this, taught the system to a friend, and used it to pass notes about how much we hated the class we were in

    I was once invited to a party by one of the smartest, coolest, most beautiful girls I've ever known. Like, she called me up and asked if I was coming and everything, and I promised her I would, and we talked on the phone for an hour or two after.

    I then got chickenshit terrified and instead stayed home and played Asheron's Call all night.

    About a year later her sister told me, right in front of an entire party, how my sister used to be so in love with me and how I stood her up on a date and how she cried about it

    I not only memorized the dwarven runes but nearly failed geometry because I was too busy drawing maps for D&D campaigns I never ran because I didn't have enough friends to play a campaign with

    all of the maps were labeled in dwarven runes

    once the french teacher confiscated one of our sheets of runic script and we were terrified she'd take it to the nerdy science teacher and he would know and she would know that we thought she was a bitch

    I once spent thousands of dollars to fly to some other country to hang out with a bunch of mouthbreathing losers at a pathetic video game convention for babies.

    Oh, um.

    Well, I didn't really doodle in my notebook because I can't draw. But I did design road systems. All drawing highways and fancy interchanges and stuff.

    It probably won't be a huge surprise, I suspect, that my favorite part of SimCity is planning out the roads.

    in ninth grade I created a star wars game played on paper where players' fleets moved from point to point on a 1000x1000x1000 3d grid

    ten of my friends signed up and we played it for a week

    then we realized nobody was ever, ever, ever going to run into each other and we stopped
