Proof Of Geek

In case anyone was wondering if I qualify as a full-tilt geek, I now have incontrovertible proof.

As of 3:19 PM Central Time, I went live as a Weather Watcher blogger for my local newspaper, the Star Tribune. The fact that the Star Tribune has been labeled as the second most likely newspaper to go out of business next does not daunt me one bit! In fact, we weather watchers will save the day, because weather is so interesting!

So please go visit the site and say hey, and while you’re there, please click on some of the ads. We’ve gotta keep this place going!!!!

    Forgive me, but I’ve had all the proof I need for some time. (I’ve seen you talk to James.) Still, cool gig.

    The site looks cool, even from here in MIchigan.

    Purely from curiosity (as opposed to snarkiness), what did you need to do qualify for this gig?

    But your geekitude is already legend.

    tlhIngan maH!

    what did you need to do qualify for this gig?

    I don’t know. They just asked me. But I think they had heard that about how many remote control thermometers and other instruments I have in use .

    George: I know, and you probably have to pay to see anything more than a month old….

    Weather Watcher Blogger can’t be considered geek cred – it wasn’t included in Weird Al’s White & Nerdy song!
