An Oddly Hgeeky Journey


Let's take an Oddly Hgeeky* Journey through the month of January 2012!

The Evolution of the Geek

Remember last month's journey?  We had so much fun that we're doing it again!

Every day in January at about 7:13 a.m. (New York timezone**), I'll tweet two words with the hashtag #ohj from @OddlyStarry.

Your job is to contribute tweets inspired by one or both words.  Tag your tweet with #ohj or #OHJ.  Since we're taking an oddly hgeeky journey through the month of January, try to make your tweet related to GEEKINESS in some way.

Topics for our oddly hgeeky journey include science, science fiction, comic books, superheroes, video games, etc.  If you are familiar with the TV show The Big Bang Theory, then you know exactly I mean!

(And since OHJ originated with haunted tweets, I wouldn't object to you sneaking in a scary tweet! :)

One of my words will be fairly simple and common, while the other will be a bit more unusual.  Sometimes they'll both be common.

In addition to typical text tweets containing a short story, pun, haiku, gogyohka, tanka, etc., you could also make a link to a photo, a video, a sound, or anything else you can think of!

You don't have to use the word exactly as given.  For example, if the word is "run", you could use run, runs, running, ran, or runnable.  Or you could just use the word as an inspiration, and go with sprint or race.  Keep in mind that many words have more than one definition, and more than one part of speech.

You could also combine one of my words with words from other games like LoqwaciousArtwiculate, and others!

Once in a while, just to keep things fresh, I might ask you to supply the caption to a picture, or I might do a hashtag game.

Have fun!  :)
