...did a book report on the Space Quest Companion in 5th grade English class. We also had to design a t-shirt to go with the book report (kind of weird). My t-shirt design had the scene from Space Quest II where Roger has to walk through the vine maze.
Anyone else reach those levels of nerdiness?
I also remember some class where the teacher asked us to write about what we wanted to be when we grew up. I wrote a page about wanting to be a "computer scientist." He didn't tell us he was going to do this, but afterward he made us all stand up and read what we wrote. When I announced I wanted to be a computer scientist, everyone laughed at me because computers were for nerds (this was around '93), and I knew that was going to happen. It made me feel bad, but I still knew I was way ahead of the curve!
