The Family that Mines Together

I’m afraid to share this blog.

What will my readership think of me? 

A readership I have no doubt numbers well into the teens. Even if it costs Jim and I readers, I’m tired of living a lie.

I’ve sinned and the only way to deal with the depravity of my nerd sins is a nerd confession.

Here goes, for your chastising pleasure I’ve grouped them into Cardinal and Venial Sins Against Nerd-dom.


I haven’t played Minecraft, and I think it looks idiotic.

I liked Armageddon, and that Aerosmith song.

I’ve pretended to be a huge fan of both “Firefly” and “Dr. Who,” though I got bored with both after the first episode.

I don’t really think Slave Leia is that hot.

If you ask me who will win between Kirk and Picard I honestly think… *yawn* What were we talking about?

I’ve yelled “Leeroy Jenkins,” referenced it in conversation, and this blog but have never, nor will I probably ever watch the video. It’s a video right?


I consistently misspell “Wookiee” as “Wookie” and “Tatooine” as “Tattooine.”

I’ve watched every season of The Guild but I’m not sure why.

I will let my son play with the Grimlock that I got for Christmas in 1984.

Googling things seems like an awful lot of work, I’d rather just not know.

Huh, I was hoping for catharsis.

Instead I just feel sort of exposed. So, who wants to go watch a few episodes of “Dr. Who” on Netflix? I love that show.



PS  I really shouldn’t read “The Crucible” right before I do these.
