Embracing My Inner Nerd

I’m a bit of a nerd.  Not a lot.  Just a little.  I lack certain key elements of nerdiness that keep me from claiming true nerd status.  Things like: spare renaissance costumes, the ability to focus on computer games and – most glaringly – the ability to do math.  But what I lack in long division skills I make up for in LOTR love and dvr’d episodes of Through the Wormhole.  (Although Morgan Freeman may cancel out any nerd-cred that show has.  I don’t know.  I’m not sure how to quantify that without a calculator.)

Another facet of my inner nerd is my enduring love of legos.  I have many, many fond memories of playing legos as a child.  Building lego pirate ships, waging Lego vs Green Army Men wars, taking lego men on backyard safaris, being told to “pick up EVERY lego NOW!!” after a parent inevitably stepped on one…those were good times.  So you can imagine my excitement last week when my brother and I stumbled across a little gem of comic genius starring legos.

Eddie Izzard + Legos = Awesome.  That’s math, bitches.


If you find yourself wanting more Eddie Izzard, I recommend looking for his Dress to Kill show. The Death Star bit is from that show and the whole thing is seriously brilliant.  Some of my favorites are: Star Wars TrilogyCake or Death (the lego version!) and Being Bilingual.
