It's like life, but it's on a stick

Dear Internet Diary,

Yesterday's Doctor Who was cool. (I'm talking about a TV show. Shut UP. I KNOW.) It's 'The Unquiet Dead' where the Doctor and Rose go to 1869 Cardiff to meet Charles Dickens, who had this really funny Shakespeare beard, and meet these weird gas-creatures who are making people zombies and... nah, I won't spoil it, ya gotta watch it yourself.

I watch Doctor Who because a) it's awesome, and b) it's one of the shows that defined modern sci-fi. Much like Star Trek, but not as stupid. There have been at LEAST nine different actors who played our dear Doctor (leather-coat-bedecked Chris Eccleston is the ninth), and there will be a tenth very soon. For those who don't know what it's about:

Rose Tyler, a London brat, meets the Doctor, a time-traveling alien (he looks human but he ain't) who uses a machine inside a phone booth - called the TARDIS - to travel through time and space. The Doctor is the last of an entire race of time travelers. Fun hijinks ensue.

To nerd or not to nerd: that is the next question.

Am I a nerd? It's been bugging me. I have friends, sure, but I'm also pretty smart and wear glasses. I think I'm nice - I'd share candy with people if I ever got it, which is never - but I'm lazy as hell and love my TV and computer to death. I do get exercise, I do know what a 'tree' looks like, but...

... I still feel like a geek. All I need is braces and it'd be complete.

Help.

UPDATE:

My grandma just left. Dad took her to the airport to catch her plane back to Poland. She might not come back to visit again; she's 77... I want her to come back. I hope, hope, hope, hope, hope.

I miss her already.
