I'm a nerd. I haven't worked as an engineer for 16+ years now, but it's still how I think. I'm still fascinated by science - right now it disappoints me that JC doesn't need more help with his chemistry.
So when I checked out Knitting to Stay Sane tonight, and she had a post about "Geeking Out", I was highly amused. And then I watched the video that she embedded.
I love this. I love that all of these people of science - that cold, dispassionate field of study - are really REALLY passionate about what they are doing. I miss it, a bit.
But this helps.
