“My Internerd Girlfriend” (A geek love poem)

A few months ago, I had the idea to write a comedy piece about a geek in love. Since the old advice is to “write what you know”, and being a geeky chick myself, it ended up being written from the perspective of the boyfriend. (Plus, geek chicks are AWESOME.) It was directly inspired by myself and a few of my geek chick friends. So like Voltron, we combine to become the perfect “internerd” girlfriend in one awesome package.


“My Internerd Girlfriend”
A Poem by Techno-Geek Nerd Princess, Christy Ramsey

She has more RAM than me.
She watches Netflix instead of TV.

She knows that the cake is a lie.
I think she’s shiny because she loves Firefly.

She carries a Leatherman Micra in her purse.
She know just about every Klingon curse.

Her Lord of Ultima score is higher than mine.
And her Evony empire is on the verge of divine.

She only plays in “expert mode”.
She has access to the Minecraft source code.

She has a nerdy t-shirt photo blog.
She owns a rooted Nexus 10 instead of a dog.

Her spelling and grammar are always correct.
She uses “teh” and “eleventy” purely for effect.

She abhors trolls and loves Stan Lee.
Joss Whedon makes her totally “Squeeeee!

Her object references are always set.
I haven’t had computer trouble since the day we met.

She wears a necklace made of cat-6 cable.
I’m intimidated by her knowledge of routing tables.

She texts me in VB and C#.
I know the code comes straight from her <3. The man of her dreams is David Tennant. She settles for me and says I'm a “close second”. All her base are belong to me, Except the selfies she posts for the world to see. Your girlfriend may be cute in high heels and skirts, But mine is hott in Chucks and Woot t-shirts.
