Show me your DORK!

No matter how cool we all may think we are on the outside, deep down a dork lives in all of us. True story.

Two weeks ago I admitted to watching High School Musical.
And High School Musical 2.
And last week I watched High School Musical: Senior Year.
And enjoyed all three of them.

I definitely think this qualifies me as a dork. Leland thinks so as well.

But I know I am not the only dork out there. Leland is pretty cool because he plays guitar in a heavy metal band….but then once you find out that he LOVES spreadsheets you realize he is just a big dork. Yes, that’s right. He loves spreadsheets. I don’t get it either. My BFF Danny is tall, dark and handsome and also a metal musician….but he is addicted to video games and often prefers sitting in front of the TV playing games to human interaction. Yes, he too is a dork.

A dork lives in all of us. Most of the time we don’t want to admit these things about ourselves. Sometimes we try and sugarcoat them. Just recently I called the stupid, teenage, girly movies I like my guilty pleasure. But really, I am a 30 year old woman. My guilty pleasure should be a glass (or bottle) of wine after work. Maybe it should be watching Cowboys and Aliens over and over again drooling over Daniel Craig. Watching stupid, teenage, girly movies is NOT a guilty pleasure. Watching those movies just proves that I am a big, fat dork.

So tell me, what makes you a dork??? I know I am not alone....

My dorkiness cannot be defined, that's how I know I am a true dork.


I've been watching 16 Candles and The Breakfast Club all summer long. Is that dorky?

I have too many to list....although high school musical is not one of them...I love Adam Sandler movies and people fall over laughing when I tell them. Yes, i thought Anger Management was a hoot. I loved Wedding Singer. See we all have guilty pleasures.

I'm such a dork too. I love all those wholesome family movies and tv shows. For instance, I can still sit and watch Little House on the Prairie and like it. D.O.R.K.

I'm such a dork, I had to look up the definition:

dork  noun
1. Slang . a silly, out-of-touch person who tends to look odd or behave ridiculously around others; a social misfit: If you make me wear that, I’ll look like a total dork! Synonyms: jerk, schmo; nerd, geek.

2. Slang: Vulgar. penis.

If you meant definition #2, your title is.. ummm... well... Well... WELL!!!

I like to do different types of model struts down our hallways at work and pretend it's a catwalk.

It usually involves a shimmy, sometimes the stomp and often a pelvic thrust once I reach the end of the runway....hallway.

I have no inner dork. It shows all over.

Megan said...

Hmm... well I love theatre and books and Abraham Lincoln.

So, yeah, I don't think I have anything that makes me a dork.

Sandra said...

I am reminded daily by my children of my dorkness.
And yes, I've seen all 3 high school musical movies...awesome, right!

I watch the Boomerang channel. I love watching the old cartoons.

I don't know, does liking romantic comedies make me a dork? On the other hand, it may be my love of light beer.
