How to Get Your Geek On

1. Every woman I saw in Seattle wears either these (only in red):
I covet these.

or these:
Preferably with skirts.

2. If you wear glasses, they must be either Lisa Loeb glasses:
Very cool.

or, these:
Even cooler.

3. You must carry a messenger bag. No ifs, ands, or buts:

4. And make sure it has this in it:

5. Along with one of these, to be checked at every possible moment:
Oops, I'm still figuring out how to work a cell phone.

I have to tell you, I felt wholly inadequate. (Except for the Powerbook, but I didn't have the right bag, so couldn't cart it around).

It's so very hard to be über-geek these days.

I hate cell phones...never owned one...never will. There is the distinct possibility that...based on your post...I may well be even geekier than I once thought. Oh woe is me why can't I ever be cool?

I am SO out of it where shoes are concerned. I do have a messenger bag and a Treo. Does that count?

I'm so out of it! I have none of those things except the cell phone, and rarely use it.

Macs in Seattle? Isn't that sacreligious or something?

I hate the eyeglasses trend. Both of my girls are covering their pretty faces with these heavy, dark glasses - ick.

The shoes are okay if you like chunky.

Hey - WE ARE MODERN WOMEN! And that's a good thing.

Oh, I love the mary jane's! I've been looking for a pair just like that.

Hm, I have it all, except the Mac - I have a dell (**gasp** my coworkers will never let me live it down)

Ha! So true! Those shoes look like Fluevogs, I love them!!

After returning from Seattle a few years ago we promptly bought a messenger bag!

Well--as a Seattle-ite, I do own a pair of red dansko clogs. They are the best!! I was not aware they were a Seattle thing though :)

and I do have my laptop attached to me at all times. Who doesn't? :)
