Signs of Geekdom, Part 5

Following on from my earlier series, here are a few observations to add from today's 'achievements'. You know you're a geek when:

  1. You really don't have much to do in the lab that day, but because you've promised to go to a lecture in the evening you stick around instead of sneaking off. You kill some of the time by reading a comic strip about a bunch of PhD students who waste time in between research by surfing the internet, and chuckle quietly to yourself about the irony.
  2. You take a trip to the library and get a warm fuzzy feeling of nostalgia thinking of the days before the bulk of your academic reading involved piles of research papers.
  3. You borrow a few books and feel quite excited by the fact that, due to it being the summer holidays, the 'standard loan' books that you'd usually be able to keep for 8 weeks aren't due back until the 1st October! Woohoo!
