Do you geek out a lot or do you keep it under control ?

Oh, and if you start talking about sushi and/or making sushi and tell me how great some place is, I usually don't believe you. The stuff I make at home is, as objectively as possible, better than what I've had in most restaurants. Only sushi in Japan has constantly exceeded my expectations.


I am more afraid of dull knives than sharpened ones. I'm a lot more likely to injure myself with a dull knife. The most common injury I get from knives is when I try to cut something with a skin (like a tomato) and the knife slips off the skin. Then my husband sharpens the knives because if I can't cut a tomato without crushing it, it's not sharp enough.

As for geeking out, I don't think there's anything wrong with being enthusiastic about your interests or hobbies, however, I do think there is a time and place to these things. If the person next to you isn't really interested in that subject, it's just polite to not spend the next hour telling them about it.

Yeah. A lot of people get the wrong idea that sharp knives are more dangerous when it's actually the opposite. Even if you accidentally cut off a finger with a knife, it'll be easier to reattach and it will heal better if the instrument was sharp.

True. Reminds me of those cars and sports guys, which seems to be most guys at parties I meet. They automatically think everyone watched "the game last night" and talk about cars. I don't understand how that's so different from geeking out, yet it's acceptable. Very odd.

I agree. Whether it's my nephew who won't stop talking about whatever video game he's playing these days or my uncles talking about whatever sport, it's obnoxious either way. It's just polite to start with something small like: "I hate dull knives, especially when cutting tomatoes or carrots." and then see if anyone likes that topic first.

I don't geek, but I don't mind simply being seen checking out manga or anime accessories at stores and bookstores

To be honest, I pretty much keep it in check, and I'm extra careful with anime, because, let's face it, that's still kind of a loaded subject sometimes. But if you mention Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, or anything else Middle-earth-related, I'm hooked. No way I can keep my inner nerd locked up when you bring up Tolkien's work.

It's not that I flaunt it a lot. But I also won't go out of my way to hide it. If people can't accept me for who I am, then why are they worth my time? Anime/Manga is a pretty big part of who I am and what I like. You should never feel bad or shot down for being passionate about something. I wish I had that attitude growing up in school, because it took me a very long time to realize this.

I usually geek out when conversing online if the person I'm talking has the same interest as mine like animes or video games. While personally, I rarely geek out, only when with a group of geeks too I guess I do geek out with them sometimes.
