Blogmas Day 15: The one where I'm nerdy

Wow it's day 15 of Blogmas already! I wish I could muster up more enthusiasm than that, but I'm still quite sick and now to top it off I'm not sleeping either, and I'm definitely feeling it. Disclaimer: this post isn't actually that nerdy, but it is nerdier than anything else you'll read on here. It's just what I'm thinking about right this moment.

Since I mentioned Space in yesterday's post I've had the Space Sphere from Portal 2's quotes stuck in my head. If you haven't heard all his sayings you can listen to them here.  He's actually not my favorite sphere, but he's funny enough. I do love the "I'm the best at space" quote though.

My favorite Sphere is the Fact Sphere. It's hilarious to listen to, which if you haven't you can here. I adore all of his quotes. Every time I listen I have a new favorite, but I always love "The square root of rope is string", "Human's can survive underwater but not for very long" and finally "The Schrodinger's Cat Paradox outlines a situation, in which for all intents and purposes a cat must both be considered simultaneously alive and dead. Schrodinger created this paradox as a justification for killing cats".

I actually don't play games that much though, I've played a few, but mostly no. I haven't even played Portal on my own. I sat down next to my husband and helped him figure out the hard bits when we first got it and that's it. I grew up around video games though, and my husband quite likes them as well, so I'm sort of a fan through osmosis. Though I am a huge fan of both Costume Quest and Lunar, The Silver Star.  Honestly, I can count the games I've played through on one hand. I'm almost done with the first fable, but I never finished it because I got bored.

While I'm still on this nerdy vain have you seen the movie The Watch yet? Some of it was a bit gross being that it was about aliens, but mostly it was freaking hilarious. I'll admit I only wanted to watch the movie because it had Richard Ayoade in it. If you don't know who he is I seriously recommend watching IT Crowd on Netflix. I've watched every season of that show repeatedly and it's just as hilarious as the first time I watched it. It's extremely funny and quotable. I seriously love that show, and as a result have watched many dubious things just because they had either Richard Ayoade or Chris O'Dowd in them.

Actually thanks to my obsession with watching dubious things (Crimson Petal and the White scarred me for life!) because of the IT Crowd's actors, I only know what an actual real life hedgehog looks like because of Bridesmaids. Before that my only exposure was Sonic The Hedgehog. (Explains so much doesn't it Mrs. Cannady?)
