Unfortunately, I Really Am That Nerdy

When I work in Cyberville, one of my jobs is to operate the laser show.

This isn't as hard as it might sound. It consists of turning a key and pushing a button.

The difficult part is if some @#$% thinks it would be fun to be a pain in the @#$ by pusing the OFF button during the show. I managed to parry his thrusts, but it was rather diffcult...

urrgh. I shouldn't have to deal with it. Fixing a powerpoint slideshow to work properly, when Erik the Tech couldn't, is more my speed.

Go figure.

And why is it that small children will run away screaming for no obvious reason? Either they idolize me, or they holler their little lungs out. That's okay for a one-year-old, but a four-year-old screaming at the sight of me and running away?

Wow, that really is lame. I guess it was a mistake to take on someone who does judo, though, in regards to being able to parry.

That small-child reaction is odd... I tend to either get ignored, or they decide that I'm someone they really really want to spend their time with, while I generally don't want to spend my time with them, which is hard to reconcile.

He takes Judo? Wow! I take Tae Kwon Do. Perhaps me and him could fight someday. ^__^ I love fighting, and going to tourneys and suchlike, and i want to learn Judo.

I have the same reactions from kids as you do. Although, i generally like to pretend to want to spend time with them, at least. :p

Yeah, I recently got a green belt.

Judo doesn't mix well with other martial arts; judo is throws, pins, chokes, and arm bars only. Kicks and punches are explicitly forbidden.

Not that we can't handle them; someone trying to kick me will find himself flat on his ass before he realizes what happened. And he'll have a sprained ankle.

Or a broken back, depending upon the angle the attack is made from. Punches will be met with similar results.

...this has come in more useful than it should in my volunteering at the St. Louis Science Center.
