John and I are huge dorks. I mean HUGE. To the point of amusingly facepalming when we do something dorky together. Some random dork moments:
If one of us starts the "IT'S OVER 9000" DragonBall Z quote, it starts a chain of having to watch (or post) the youtube video, and yell "WHAT? 9000?? There's no way that can be right!"
We live by this...water treatment (this is what we assume it to be) place that has a sign that says "Dominion". (Star Trek fans will appreciate this.) When we passed it the other day, it turned into a conversation on how that was obviously the home of the Dominion, and that was where they were making Tetricil White. Now this is a sort of "ha ha..." type of thing until you realize that we have this conversation almost every time AND it's just like the first time, only we don't remember having the conversation until we're done having the conversation. IE- The conversation ends with "I think we had this discussion the last time we passed here.
"IT'S A TRAP." is used regularly in the household.
“Shinji, you suck" or "Shinji, get in the Eva" is also frequently used.
Finally, the term "baka" (馬鹿) is the word of choice when we are calling each other "stupid" or "silly." Not really a "god you guys are dorks" moment as much as a "God, you guys are truly Otaku/japanophiles" type of thing. Ah well.
But the thing about all of this is, it's really cool that we found each other other. Our dorkiness matches each other perfectly, and that makes life even better.
