the square root of three


Here's a little riddle for you...
 
What do you get when you mix one computer genius with one avid scrapbooker?

If you guessed the answer to be "true love", then you would be correct. 
If you guessed the answer to be "a whole lotta dorkiness", then you would also be correct.
And if you guessed the answer to be "a whole lotta dorky love", well then you get bonus points. 

And here's the proof:
 

 A couple of months ago mmb was telling me about a funny movie he was watching and told me to come watch a certain part that was coming up. The movie? Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. The part he was referring to? A super dorky, albeit romantic, part of a really ridiculous movie where the guy confesses his love to the girl using math analogies. 

 What's that you say? You haven't seen the scene?
Well you can check it out here.
WARNING: SOME EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THIS CLIP
 ALSO, LOTS AND LOTS OF MATH REFERENCES.

I'll admit, it was funny. 
And pretty romantic in a geeky sorta way. 
But hey, that's us. 
Me and my computer nerd, in love 1.21 gigawatts times over.
Happier than all the binary in the interweb.  
Call me crazy, but I think I could listen to this man talk about c++ forever. 
;-) 

So what's a girl to do when she falls in love with a man whose alma mater's song lyrics give a shoutout to cosigns, tangents and pi? 
Well, embrace it. That's what. 
 
And scrap it. Of course.

Aw, that's lovely! I'm married to a mathematician too. Embracing it is definitely the right way to go :)

I can relate somewhat. My hubby is not a math genius, but he is a nerd in many other ways. His nerdy qualities are what made me fall in love with him! I enjoy what you did with your layout, very cute!

Too cute! As a computer science major AND an avid scrapbooker I can relate. And of course I am married to another computers/sci-fi/playstation geek.
