Husbands! AHHHHHH!

Okay, this is a venting post. If you want a picture post, please see the post below this. So, my husband really likes to L.A.R.P. For those of you who don't know what that means...it means live action role playing. In other words....Nerd city! So he runs around and hits people with swords made of duct tape screaming things like "+20" and "God save the Queen!" It is so nerdy and he LOVES IT! He begs me to go play all the time. Did I know he did this before I married him? NO! Sometimes he asks me to come play and I of course say no. Everyone seems to smell of B.O. and eggs. They all dress up and take on fake accents. Sometimes, my brother and I watch just to laugh. Seriously! Do any of your husbands do anything this nerdy???
To see what I am talking about, click here. (my husband is actually in this video!)

HAHA! That video was seriously hilarious! (and scary). My ex husband was into larping and role playing games. I actually would play when they would role play with the "20 sided dice" or whatever, but larping? DUDE. Yeah, that calls for a nerd alert. ;) Maybe my honey will get Christian into paint balling instead. :) Good to see you today!

Oh. My. HALARIOUS! Is this at Liberty Park? I'm only asking because I remember seeing guys doing this kind of stuff there. Well, my husband may not be into LARPing... but he is on eheck of a JEDI... Yess... Nerd. He even made his own video once, custom made costume and all!... wish I still had it to post on youtube.

I thought Mike was a geek... but role-playing is SO beyond his geekiness. You have truly married the Nerd. :o)

LOL I have tears in my eyes and I can't even see the keyboard from the blurry eyes! Honestly, was he a closet LARPer when you were dating? Deal breaker for me! But yeah, Bryan can be kind of a nerd too. But more if a tinkering nerd. His nerdiness is all about Xbox Live and having Halo parties. I guess that's more mainstream nerdiness.
Anyway...good luck with that... (chirp.chirp)

Reading this post totally made me think of one of the characters on 'Beauty and The Geek' a few seasons ago. The guy was a LARPer and he was absolutely hilarious. While Doug doesn't LARP, he does pretend that he can dance. Trust me, to watch him is comical...and somewhat embarrassing...but I love him anyway.
