Ever had a moment so nerdy that you needed to tell the Internet about it? Send your submissions to dorklypwnup at gmail.
My wife just gave birth to our first child. We've certainly had some nerdy moments throughout this.
Around the beginning of March, I found myself bored with the lack of interesting games being released. I decided that I'd make it my goal to beat every Final Fantasy made for the traditional consoles (SNES, PS1, PS2, etc.) I was so excited about this idea that I told my friend, who is a Final Fantasy fanatic, about it. Not only did he think it was a great idea, but he also decided take on the exact same task I set for myself. He now has his own personal gaming closet in my apartment. He comes over every other day, even if I'm not home; opens the closet and starts playing away. We now spend our nights lounging in chairs and playing Final Fantasy on two screens, and in no way is that depressing.-Adam
My fiance claims she doesn't care about video games and isn't a nerd. But she isn't quite as against games as she thinks she is: she already has made plans to have a Mario-themed wedding cake, she got irritated with me one time for accidentally saying that Ursaring was a first generation Pokemon, she owns an NES with classics like Mario, Tetris, and Duck Hunt, and says that our kids will play NES (she grew up playing NES and beat Mario multiple times as a kid). She has made plans to decorate my future office with Mario-themed wall decals, she bought me the Yoda backpack where he actually holds on like in Episode V, she is an avid Harry Potter fan, she is a beast at DDR and Guitar Hero, and she refuses to part with her collection of Pokemon cards she collected as a child.
So you tell me, is she a nerd? She denies it, but I think I know better. She will come to embrace the nerd in her someday.-Luke
A few days ago (3rd of May), a friend of mine got married. The first thing I thought about was that the wedding day will be easy to remember. That´s because on May 3rd the GameCube was released in Europe.-Andre
And this week's "THANK YOU" Award goes to
I just graduated with an English degree last December. I'm proud of my achievement and glad I don't have to write any more papers (though I've done some 10 to 12 page papers on things like Star Wars and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood). Why am I telling you this? I figured it'd comfort you knowing one less Pwn Up reader will be submitting stories about taking tests or writing papers with the help of video games.-Corwin
