Our #1 Daughter highly recommended Freaks and Geeks. I’d heard a lot of praise for it while it was on, so, when she said she and hers loved it and she offered to lend me the entire series (18 episodes), I took her up on it.
I turned it off partway through the first episode. It was just too much like real life. But she talked me into watching more, and I’m glad she did. Turns out, it’s a little like real life, but not too much. Since I was a geek until I got into college, when I became a freaky geek, the suffering of the geeks cuts close to the bone. But it doesn’t seem to scar them, and they always stick together. So that’s nice.
It’s set in the early ’80s, so the music is familiar to me, which doesn’t hurt. Lots of good acting, lots of good writing.
My nails this past week:
And then I did these for Imaginarium. For those who don’t know, these are in tribute to SAGE, my fantasy trilogy, featuring the four Divine Animals: Dragon, Phoenix, Unicorn, and Tortoise. There are bees in it, too, so I have a bee on my thumb.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Were you a freak, a geek, or Other when you were in school?
