I spent today shopping. It was great. I’m usually not one to spend hours at the mall lusting after items far too expensive for anyone to ever actually buy them, but sometimes I just want to spend a day wandering around stores, strolling up down aisle after aisle. Most of the time, I don’t even end up buying anything. Today, however, that was not the case.
I’m trying to build a new wardrobe for grad school which is turning out to be more difficult than I anticipated. While I found some wonderful things today (shirt covered in tiny giraffes, super soft blue scarf…), I’ve also got my eye on some especially nerdy online finds.
1. A shirt that explains it all. I was recently introduced to a website called Think Geek. It’s a great little gem of a website filled with everything geeky. From t-shirts to cubicle decorations, pretty much everything on this site makes me smile or laugh. Of course half of the jokes revolve around crazy computer lingo I don’t understand, but I’ve been told that those, too, are quite funny. I’ll have to take my boyfriend’s word for it.
2. My favorite novels on t-shirts? What could be better? I found this site through a fashion blog I’ve been reading for the last few months and immediately wanted almost every shirt they make. How great are they? Now I don’t even have to walk around with my nose in a book to look like a pretentious English major. I can display my affinity for the written word right there on my t-shirt. Fantastic. I’m loving the Catcher shirt, but I don’t think my English grad student wardrobe will ever be complete without at least six of these great t’s. Yes, you can say it; I already know I’m a nerd.
3. JSTOR. On a t-shirt. That’s all.
And now I’m off to scour the web for some more geeky, nerdy goodness.
