...five. Oof.

At least I've accepted being a nerd. It's actually quite enjoyable. =)

Only three, surprisingly.

Although believe me, if I could find a cardboard cutout of a few select celebrities, I'd totally do it.

Six (yay!), but no one in Australia says 'tennis shoes', so I'm not sure if that counts.

thecircusbird said...

How many did you get? Or did you base these on yourself? :)

That Blond Guy said...

Spastic: Good. Become one with your nerdiness.

Muse: Yeah, that one was based on the fact that one of my friends has a cardboard cut-out of some German actress in his bedroom.

Dog Naming: Um...I'm much more of a cat person.

Circus Bird: Really? That's interesting. Pretty much everyone around here says "tennis shoes" except for old people and, well, nerds.

Actually, none of these apply to me. I'm a different sort of nerd, really.

I remember I went to the cinema when High School Musical 3 was screening. I saw a life-sized cardboard poster of the HSM cast. I thought it looked a bit strange, then realised that someone had ripped out the Zac Efron.

I thought that was relevant and interesting :)

That Blond Guy said...

I have a confession to make...

That was me.
