Finished! The quilting is done, it's bound, label on--check. Now it's time to put together the extras.
But that will come later. For now, here's some geekery:
Star Trek comm badge needle holder. Yeah, you read that right. Think that's nerdy? That's okay.
You see, I walk a fine line between normal, semi-cool person and outright freak, a precarious position that is made easier only by following these cardinal rules of conduct:
1) Know your audience. Don't talk about whether Kirk was better than Picard, or how George Lucas became senile somewhere between the 80's and now, or whether the Wheel of Time really is the new Lord of the Rings, etc., unless you're sure you aren't going to get a blank, fixed-smile stare.
2) Do not attend nerd conventions. Don't even think, for a millisecond, in the darkness and privacy of your own toolshed, about how maybe if you were slightly less cool you might, maybe, kind of enjoy going to a convention.
3) Do not admit to speaking Klingon. Ever.
4) Do not show people the dress you made from Lord of the Rings, lest they think you are into LARPing.
5) Do not get into LARPing.
6) Never, under any circumstances, engage a Hipster in nerd talk. If in doubt about whether they are really a Hipster, read this, or defer to rule #1.
That's it! Consider yourself armed, fellow nerds, with the secret rules of my success. And successful I am. Because the Force is strong with me.
