If I leave my hair down and wear glasses I look like a posterboy for Geek.
I still, on occasion, say w00t.

i guess since it's my topic, i should contribute:
1) i smoke too much
2) i can't go out to eat because i'm allergic to everything
3)i drink too much coffee and then i get bitchy
4) i won't let the bagger or the cashier at the grocery store bag my food because i don't like the way they pack things.
5) i don't pass on to 10 people all of those religious "pray for our soldiers" e-mails i get.
6) i act dramatic and i get bitchy when someone around me is wearing too much perfume (it makes me sick).
7) i won't lend my employee room key to anyone at work because some people forget to give it back, so i lie and say i don't have it.
8) i actually kept a 1 year old stale, flat cigarette with me, just for when somebody tried to BUM a cigarette off of me. i HATE it when people can't support their own friggin habit. it's not my job.
9) i don't like to share.
10)i don't pick up shifts for people unless they've helped me out in the past. i'm good at making fast excuses.

um, and other than that, i'm perfect

I once cried at an episode of Antique Road Show on PBS.

In my defense, it was at an 80 year old woman telling the story of her husband's 1938 Martin acoustic guitar. It was worth 50 grand. She said, "Well, it's not for sale, but that's nice to know."

I lost it.

I have absolutely no sense of fashion and my usual wardrobe consists of a $12 Lands' End T-shirt and black sweats.

I am not because I:

- can't park
- panic in front of extremely attractive men
- fall over when I'm not that drunk
- forget the 'think-speak' rule
- pretend to understand words I don't understand

I am not cool because my one designer label top ( Dolce Gabbana, fluorescant orange figure hugging club tshirt) which I adore because it makes me look super fuckin sexxy ...I bought for 50p at a fleamarket.....oh and i have never learned to drive....what else what else? *thinks* Its funny there are so many things which prevent me from ever achieving coolth but its hard to get specific.....bit like when people ask you what you want from your birthday, only totally different.....

Mmm. I like moby.....Ok there I said it now....I dedicated a largish portion of 4 years to a computer game....not very cool...not even remotely big or clever....I taught my dog to gi'me Five!....Thats seriously uncool. I very much enjoyed school dinners, they were scrummy.... I was the only hippy at the motorway services who had bought a ticket to Glastonbury.....There's just so much. My life is filled with instances of apparent coolness which upon any close inspection turn into the most uncool thing ever..........I once got into to trouble with the police ....and then cried like a little girl so the officer would let me go....

I would file 5 under cool myself.

As for 6 these can aggravate me too. My mother-in-law used to wear something particularly did not get along with me... I felt like it was seeping under my contacts stright into my eyeballs.

Like UT, I have no fashion sense, but I got for the "office geek" look... khakis and a button-down shirt. (And I do get most of my shirts from Land's End because they're the only place I've found that reliably carries my size.)

I only wear pants that will match the black tee shirts that I buy in two-packs at wal-mart.

I'm a stay-at-home mom who drives an suv. 99.9% of my wardrobe is Gap or J.Crew. I'm afraid of bugs. I sell things on eBay. I'm 30something. I fell off the vegetarian wagon over the holidays and can't seem to get back on (because Jim comes in here with those damn rotisserie chickens...). I watch Spongebob Squarepants even when the kids aren't.
