Geek moments from this weekend:

Before making brownies on Friday.

Me (to guardmisfit): Ooh, nice fractal! Very cool.
guardmisfit: huh?
Me: Your desktop background is a fractal.
guardmisfit: What's a fractal?
Me: < Launches into explanation of what fractals are and how cool they are, including discussion of the model Serpinski tetrahedron I kept in my room until it fell apart simply because I thought the idea of a construct that appeared 3 dimensional but was in fact 2 dimensional (at least in terms of its fractal dimension) was completely fascinating. >

While watching Easter Parade this evening:

shallwedance_: And now the love quadrangle is established.
Dan: Wouldn't that be a square?
Me: Not necessarily. If the loves were different sizes producing different line lengths and angles.
Dan: But it would still have to have some sort of symmetry.
Sharla: Not if all the lines were different lengths.
Me: Yeah, just all the angles have to add up to 360 degrees.

And I now have a newfound appreciation for fractals. Thanks! :P

I watched Easter Parade yesterday, too! Well, listened to it is probably more accurate, as I was cooking up a storm at the time.
