Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth!

Geek-Pride-Day-003-Web

The greatest day of the year is fast approaching and Geeks everywhere are preparing for this momentous of days by watching their favourite movies, playing their favourite games — board, pc and/or console — and eating bacon.
Yeah, I went there because bacon.

Geek Pride Day is on the 25th of May, which is this coming Monday. It’s the day when Geeks around the world celebrate their geekiness, their nerdiness and their general awesomeness! It’s the day when Geeks can proudly proclaim “I am a Geek” and all the muggles look on in awed amazement at the mystically mythical Geeks before them.

Okay, so it’s not quite that epic — yet — but it is a day to celebrate all things geek and all people who identify as a geek. Weird choice of words? Well no, some geeks don’t realise they are in fact geeks, particularly if you subscribe to the Simon Pegg idea that a geek is anyone who is passionate about something. I may have paraphrased that to death, here’s the original quote:

Simon Pegg Geek Quote

Geek Pride Day is actually a legitimate geek holiday, I’m not making it up to sound cool or to sound like some kind of Ultra Geek from the sparkly Planet Nerd.
The Wiki of Pedia — Wikipedia — explains the holiday as:

“Geek Pride Day (Spanish: Día del orgullo friki ) is an initiative to promote geek culture, celebrated annually on 25 May. The date was chosen as to commemorate the 1977 release of Star Wars, but shares the same date as two other similar fan “holidays”: Towel Day, for fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy by Douglas Adams, and the Glorious 25th of May for fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.

The initiative originated in Spain in 2006 as “Día del Orgullo Friki” and spread around the world via the Internet.”

While this may seem a little strange, silly or far fetched to some, I am genuinely excited about a day that is globally recognised by geeks for geeks! I have a whole day of awesomeness planned from watching The Princess Bride with the Eidann (it’s one of his favourite movie) to delving into the world of The Fifth Element, followed by playing some DC Universe Online and, time permitted, baking something with a geek theme, yeah that most likely means bacon. In fact, I think I’ll spend the whole week celebrating all things Geek by watching my Sailor Moon DVD collection! *purrs*

I’m not sure if there are any events planned within Second Life to celebrate Geek Pride Day, I’ve asked around but so far I haven’t been lucky enough to get any responses.
If you know of something happening in Second Life for Geek Pride Day please let me know, I’d love to hang out with some of my fellow geeks and rejoice in our geekiness!

What will you be doing on Geek Pride Day? I’d love to hear what you’ve got planned, let me know in the comments!

*This is the second time in my 8 years of SL that someone has said “here, let me make that for you” and not asked for anything in return. I am still shocked to be honest. The lovely Kaylithium™ restored some of my faith in humanity, thank you!

  1. Cutie! Please let me know if you discover any Geek Day events, as I’ll be there with bells on. Or maybe I’ll just show up in head-to-toe demos, because that is most DEFINITELY something a true nerdslice would do.

    PS: All my bacon are belong to you! ♥
