Velma: first nerd girl of my generation
She stood out because she was so plain. Every day I’d passed her in the math hall and we’d exchange a friendly nod or look, but never words. Neither of us would have known what to say anyway. Then I saw her on the lawn at Pine Knob wearing cutoffs and a tank top. Wow.

FFF-55 Vol. XXXII. Tell a story in exactly 55 words. Go see G-Man.
My tribute to nerd girls, for which we nerd boys will forever be grateful, and a nod to one of my fav's, HNG. Also a good excuse to share one of my recent guilty pleasures (explicit).


  1. there is def something about nerd girls...smiles.

  2. glad she caught your eye
    fun 55
    Hope your weekend is full of nerd chick sightings

  3. Linc....?
    You mean the DTE?
    Ha...It'll ALWAYS be Pine Knob to me too!
    Loved your nerdy 55 Brother
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  4. Yup, those nerdy girls don't always have just books on their minds ;)

  5. Well, I had to read this one when I saw the title, lol. Nice to know you appreciate nerd girls :o)

  6. Put me in mind of Janice Ian "Seventeen" - the ultimate Nerd Girl lament.

  7. I do post for the G-man but I don't think we have met. This is a nice one...and yes, I am one of the nerdy ones...

  8. For a post about nerds this is really cool! Nice to meet you and hope to see you at the next 55.

  9. Awww...ever the nerd girl, I had no idea that anyone ever noticed that there was more to life than cheerleader types. :)

    PS - thanks for your kind words on my post!

  10. The ones who are easy to overlook are often the ones most worthy of attention.

  11. See? Hotness is definitely in the eye of the beholder :) A neat 55!

    Nice to meet you, Linc.

  12. I'm on the other side of the fence. Yay for nerd boys. Did I mention that my dh and I get together over a copy of Illustrated Man?
