Blah. But I did love Perfect Way (by one-hit wonder Scritti Politti) and still have a soft spot for all that is/was Robert Palmer.

I just had to know so I took your nerd test. Here are my results....

Joe Normal
47 % Nerd, 39% Geek, 34% Dork
For The Record:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored less than half in all three, earning you the title of: Joe Normal.

This is not to say that you don't have some Nerd, Geek or Dork inside of you--we all do, and you can see the percentages you have right above. This is just to say that none of those qualities stand out so much as to define you. Sure, you enjoy an episode of Star Trek now and again, and yeah, you kinda enjoyed a few classes back in the day. And, once in a while, you stumble while walking down the street even though there was nothing there to cause you to trip. But, for the most part, you look and act fairly typically, and aren't much of an outcast.

I'm as surprized as you are.

Check out 1990 (my special year) -- it goes from bad to mediocre, all the way up to (almost) honorable mention level, except for one stretch between 62 and 75 -- and here are the songs I'll pick (since I feel I must):

    62. Janie's Got A Gun, Aerosmith
    65. Free Fallin', Tom Petty
    67. Enjoy The Silence, Depeche Mode
    75. Epic, Faith No More

Sad how barren it is... I thought I remembered better music.
