Geek Night

At some point in the pub a few weeks back a group of us book people discovered two joint loves.

First, a shared appreciation of that fine British sitcom that is the IT Crowd.

Second, a shared delight in raising our spirits and deflecting morose contemplation of our depressing lives, by taking the piss out of geek-boy G.

Putting the two together, an idea was born which came to fruition tonight. Geek Night.

A night of watching all the episodes of the IT Crowd back to back, whilst gorging on pizza and booze.

Or in other words, an evening helping G celebrate the culture of "his people".

A fine night it was too. They came, we ate, we drank (white wine obviously) and we watched all of series one and half of series two. Frankly we watched until K and I broke down and begged that the pause button allow some human interaction.

Which just goes to prove that generally girl's don't make as good geeks as boys.

Nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there...
