    So, at work I'm a Dork. At home I'm a Nerd. Around other people I like to be thought of as a Geek?

    When I see women my age dressing in very 'revealing' clothes and then whacking on a pair of 3D Glasses and calling themself "Geek" to make them seem less of a --.. that's when I know it isn't a positive term.

    Back OT though: I get called various, I never actually know which one I am - I suppose really we should just consider ourselves another supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus sentence but with all names relating to 'Geek/Nerd' in it instead. I would say it is a positive term now, especially as society have finally realised we're not all trolls who have basements for bedrooms and refuse to utter a single letter out of our mouths to people we come across. The old stereotype is finally fading
