I think I'm turning a bit Sheldon...

I never thought it'd happen, but it has!

I ended a particularly bad joke with 'Bazinga!' after telling it.

And, I wasn't feeling too well so I asked my mom to sing 'Soft Kitty' to me (she refused though).

Anybody else gone a bit Sheldon besides me? O_o

I think I've always been a bit Sheldony - I've been known in many places of employment as the one who always comes out with trivia about something we're discussing. (One time, someone actually bought me a book full of fun facts!) and because I have a science degree, I tend to spout off scientific jargon at odd times. And I love Doctor Who and movies that involve time travel.

But I hasten to add - I generally interact well with others! :)

Well, the other day I explained how to play "rock paper scissors lizard Spock" to my friend, and I laughed at a Star Trek reference on a different show (even though I've never, ever watched Star Trek myself). But that's probably not very Sheldony at all.

I was waiting with my daughter at her netball game last weekend and we ended up playing rock paper scissors lizard Spock. Unfortunately I couldn't remember all the rules about what beats what!:icon_lol:

I hope for your sake that your new wallet has enough inserts for cards. Remember to allow one for your honorary Justice League of America membership card.

I also ordered a Flip-fold for my mother's day present.

I always try to settle arguements with Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock.

I also sang that one song "Deep in the Heart of Texas" when people are talking about something I don't want to hear.

The other day, I knocked like Sheldon does, without realizing it!

A form of Osmosis perhaps?

As long as one doesn't become Sheldonese by mitosis, one should be fine.

As for myself: I chuckled like Sheldon a couple of times and people seemed to get really uncomfortable around me.

Besides that, I'm nothing like Sheldon, except maybe for the fact that I tend to use perceived intellectualism as a protective mechanism.

I think I always was a bit Sheldonesque, and now after watching this show it's become more prominent because it actually feels good instead of embarrassing. Specially when I'm around friends who are fans themselves. :)

For example: science geek, having favorite spots and fixed routines, a bit of social awkwardness, don't drink, very passionate about fanship loyalties, too logical and analytical for my own good (I'm told),.. and now of course I do the 'soft kitty' thing and the 'live long and prosper' thing, too.

Recently I noticed that I count the number of times I stir sugar in my coffee, and it has to be a fixed number; and that seemed so like something Sheldon would do!

LOL, same here to a degree. I have my fixed routines, and hubby and I each have our fixed spot on the couch. And I've always been a science geek. And I don't drink alcohol or coffee. :icon_cheesygrin:

For the past two days, people have been hugging me a lot. Today I'm sick.

Sorry, I laughed when I read that, then felt bad because you're sick.

"Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr."

Feel better now?

Hey, I was about to do that as soon as I heard 'sick', and you did it before me.

Never mind, we can do a round. :)

@Mousedroppings - get well soon, anyway!
