I am a Nerd.

So there I was, looking for a new DVD player for my computer that crapped out on me. I Google Computer Parts store and head on over to a small hole in the wall joint that had good reviews. I was greeted by a nice guy at the counter whom asked polity what I was looking for and walked me to the area where they kept the drives. I walked around this place looking at all of the great stuff they had when I noticed a shelf of misc items that no computer store should have. I wanted it. I read the price tag and knew I had to have it. If the price tag was labeled correctly there was no way I was leaving without it.



One TNG bridge Playset
Only thing missing is Beverly :^(

^I am a nerd, too, because if I had that, I would giggle and do a geeky happy-dance while clapping like an idiot.

Nice catch! I'll bring over my Transporter playset and we'll have an adventure!

I tossed most of my Playmates action figures when they turned white with Mego molt. I still have the bridge, the transporter, and the shuttles. Loved that stuff.

That Playmates line was phenomenal. My childhood collection was sadly lost to time (I blame Mom), but I've started collecting them again when I go to conventions.

Sweet. I actually got the old transporter playset and a shuttlecraft when my mother-in-law closed down her daycare.

You're a nerd and you don't buy your computer equipment online? For shame!

Re: I am a Nerd.

is this the nerd coming-out thread? Hi, I'm rhubarb and 25 years ago I gave in to the sudden urge to buy the blueprints of the Enterprise D.


Don't worry, ThunderAeroI, you're in good company here
Btw, you made quite a bargain! Congratulations!

I also would have bought it. Well done.
