The Moment It Hit Me ...

... That I'm a geek:

When I was in the car a couple days ago and 'Straight Up' by Paula Abdul* came on the radio and I knew every word of it -- Every. Single. Word. ...

Are you more than hot for me?
Or am I a page in your history
Book, I don't mean to make demands
But the word and the truth go hand in hand
How about some information Pleeeeeeeeeeease (Please, please a-please-please)


* I added the link to the music video for your viewing pleasure. And by 'pleasure,' I mean 'Paula and a human version of Mr. Peanut -- complete with top hat and cane, wearing a trench coat, but without the monocle -- and if you call this pleasure, then you're sick. Totally sick.'

LOVE it!

Yes, but can you do MC Skat Cat's entire rap in Opposites Attract? I have mad Paula skills.

It's like my hours of playing my 'Forever Your Girl' cassette as a kid burned lyrics into my brain for all time. Unfortunately, science or history...not so much.

Whoa whoa whoa, wait a second, MC Skat Cat's ENTIRE RAP IN OPPOSITES ATTRACT?! This is like an untapped resource! We could have a sing off. Or Paula Karaoke ... I thought I was the only one cursed (and by 'cursed' I of course mean 'blessed-beyond-recognition') with Paula Abdul songs forever burned into my brain!

I can't remember any of science either -- except for the time we dissected a little squid and our teacher gave us bonus points if we ate a piece like calamari ... And I can't remember how to do long division for the life of me ...
