You might be a geek if...

1. You find out that the company where you've been working for over a year has a "library."

2. You find out the reason the person who told you about the "library" (who is also on a mission to expand it, which is how the subject came up) uses air quotes every time he says the word: it consists of about a shelf and a half of books and tapes at the back of the mailroom.

3. You realize that, between the two people in your household, you own at least that many books in languages other than English.

When we moved Kevin and I realized as we packed that we own more books on our to-read pile than many people have in their house altogether...

We don't even keep the to-read pile separate any more. But if we did, I have no doubt that would be the case.

Half Price Books is a dangerous, dangerous place. We'll miss it terribly when we're both in Chicago, I'm sure, but it's probably just as well... :-D

Oh, you don't have to miss it. You can drive up here and I'll take you to ours! :)

Or to Frugal Muse, the local 3-chain used bookstore.

Or....

Yes, but we'll miss it being in the strip mall with the dollar cinema we went to at least once or twice a month. *g*

Which actually means we'll buy fewer books we ordinarily wouldn't because we wouldn't necessarily know they existed...

Wow, you've already been at that job for a year?? That hardly seems possible...

A year and 3 1/2 months. Bizarre, non?

That's nuts! I remember your posts about job-hunting as though they were yesterday!

I would expect nothing less from the two of you. ;)

*chuckle* I was trying to think of an appropriate subset, and that was the best one I came up with...
