In an article I read about Robert Pattison, that lead actor in the Twilight saga (perhaps you've heard of him or of the movie), the interviewer called Pattison a 'nerd' because he "is never without a book in his hand, a piece of music on his mind, or a movie he wants to share." Excuse me? To my way of thinking he's just described me, most of my friends and family, and many of the fellow bloggers I read -- and I certainly do not consider any of us 'nerds,' by any means.
Perhaps the writer meant to say we are not screaming teenagers clutching texting devices in our hands with vampires on the brain...*
*I don't get the frenzy over this dude at all. To me he seems an awkward boy with bad hair. But then, I've always gone for older men.
