I'll admit it any time - I'm a geek. And my son's a geek, but at least he can revel in it, unlike when I was his age and being a nerd was a bad thing. And I do geeky things - I record tons of custom ring tones for our phones (his, mine, my wife's). I have goofy answering machine messages - somewhere, I have a message that I edited together from the Howard Stern show about 20 years ago. Even says my name. Years ago, I even used Dr. Sbaitso to do a Stephen Hawking message for myself. And then I do stuff like this...

We finally caved and bought a GPS last year. Almost instantly, we loaded the Billy Connolly voice for it. Later added the John Cleese. Somehow or another, I found out you could load your own car images to it. So, this is what it looked like on my last trip to SOMD last year (and I still have the same icon to this day, although the Bluesmobile or the Batmobile would be excellent choices).



I got hooked on Doctor Who the year they showed "Christmas Carol" here the same day as in the UK. My son got hooked even harder. Even my wife watches the show - they're not going to let me change this...
