SparkPeople Dorkville Team Messageboard A place for all of us who suspect that we may indeed be dorks. We laugh but don't judge:) SparkPeople Dorkville Team Messageboard Define Dork I've always wondered how people describe DORK vs. NERD...etc. So I found this. <BR> <img src=""> Mon, 11 Mar 2019 14:04:21 EST What is your dork attitude for the day? I think this says it all for my day today..."Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know." <BR> <BR> Groucho Marx Fri, 21 Nov 2014 06:30:27 EST Dork to the max! Well hello there! I am a total dork! By some standards. In High school I was the weirdo the loner the strange one. I am a type B in a type A family. Always felt alittle out of place.Now I have purple and gold hair!!!! <em>244</em> Tue, 14 Jan 2014 16:34:44 EST Message Removed Message Removed Fri, 1 Feb 2013 12:25:27 EST Hi all!!!! Hey guy, sorry I have been absent for a long time I fell off the wagon. I gained back the 73 lbs. I lost. I will try to post here at least once a week to update you all and to stay accountable. Welcome to all the new members!!!!! Thu, 23 Aug 2012 11:19:39 EST Advice Please?? Okay as you all know my oldest daughter lost her best friend. She found a scarf she had been meaning to give this friend and now has plans to give it to her friend's sister. The family is First Nations (Native American) and I am wondering if there is anything in their culture that might make this a bad idea. <BR> <BR> I am not sure if this makes any sense. I just don't want her to be hurt by the sister rejecting the gift because it was meant for someone who is now deceased. Tue, 10 Apr 2012 22:22:45 EST RIP Monkee Davy Jones Just read on my FB feed that my favourite Monkee has died at the age off 66. He will be missed. Wed, 29 Feb 2012 21:24:57 EST good dorky reading One of our fellow dorks here is writing a story that she is sending to me to read and I like it. It is based on the storyline of Avitar. Would anybody else here be interested in reading it? If so, please let myself or Tabbyarts know as she is the one writing it. I know she would like to share her story with other dorks that like her and are willing to support her, she is just a little shy about things here after what happened to her. I assured her that we wouldn't judge her and that this is a... Mon, 20 Feb 2012 07:02:22 EST New to Dorkville Team (not new to Dorkville) Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I laughed out loud when I saw this SparkTeam existed--seemed like a team I pretty much had to join! <BR> <BR> I've rejoined SparkPeople after a little over a year away and am working on making better habits part of me and losing some pounds along the way. <BR> <BR> On the Dork side, I find obscure word puns unreasonably hilarious and am dieing for the new Hobbit movie to get to the theaters already. <BR> <BR> Looking forward to Sparking with you!

I coundn't stop smiling when I was reading your comments and posts. You obvisously have a lot of fun with each other and its awesome.

Thu, 2 Sep 2010 17:21:20 EST The Dorky Thing I Did Today As my mother and I were driving down the driveway earlier to go to the library, the boys (our cats)were sitting in the kitchen window. I leaned over my mother and waved and said good-bye to the cats as if they could hear or see me! DORK!!!

I've been a member of SP for almost six months and a member of this team for about a week. I discovered it through another member's spark page and after reading the description knew this was a team for me! <BR> <BR> You may ask what makes me a dork. Well, just a few things are: <BR> <BR> 1. I change the lyrics to songs to be about my cats and then I sing it to them! <BR> <BR> 2. Everytime we go to the movies I come hom... Mon, 23 Aug 2010 12:38:53 EST Poll: Which makes me a bigger dork That I can't stop humming Weird Al's "The Saga Continues" or that I know most of the words to it AND the tune it's based off of, "American Pie?"

Anyone interested in joining the challenge should pick one thing they want to be consistent with on specific task. They each is assigned a day to follow-up with our fellow dorks to see how we are doing with our chosen challenge. Depending on how many sign up, we might have to cover 2 days. I think Pru and Blondedog are in, since they brought up the idea of an accountability challenge. <BR> <BR> Come on Dorks, let's pick a challenge and try to do it every day! Heh! heh! Now you know why ... Wed, 14 Jul 2010 22:22:27 EST This proves it. I went grocery shopping at Trader Joe's today. They had on the local "oldies" station. So as I'm picking out fresh fruit, I'm bopping along and lip-synching to Tommy James and the Shondells' Mony Mony. <BR> <BR> It's official -- I am undeniably a dork!

No, really, look it up. I'm older than hell, my kids are long grown, and I still embarrass them. Makes a woman kind of proud. <BR> <BR> It's good to be here!

Wanted to let everyone know cuz I am just so excited!

Look forward to meeting everyone ^-^ Tue, 27 Apr 2010 18:04:57 EST I love, love, love... running into people I haven't seen in awhile. They all look at me twice (to make sure I am me) and then tell me how good I look. Vain, I know but it feels good to hear it and it makes me appreciate all the hard work I've done to get here. Thu, 15 Apr 2010 18:56:37 EST Daily Dork Does any one watch The Big Bang Theroy? <BR> <BR> I really love this show! When I tell people that they have to watch it, they say why, so I tell them <BR> "NERDS! Everyone loves NERDS right?" I mean come on what is not to love about nerds???? Fri, 26 Feb 2010 20:05:36 EST Song of the day I've been looking for a little more motivation lately so I have decided to have a song of the day. Since I love music so much this will be fun as well as inspiring for me. Today my song is "Live like your dying" by Lenka <BR> Mon, 22 Feb 2010 09:37:42 EST Hello there! Hi, my name is Dani, and I'm a dork. I'm an 18 year old girl from Arkansas, USA and am looking forward to meeting some fellow dorks. ^-^ Mon, 15 Feb 2010 16:20:05 EST Things that make me crazy! I know we talked about bad drivers earlier, but today the sister wars are driving me crazy. The words "shut up" and "stupid" are not my favorite words, I don't really like to use them at all. So why do these girls insist on driving me so crazy that I have to use them both in one sentence? "Shut up, you are both acting so stupid!" Needless to say we are all having a time out. <em>234</em> Sat, 23 Jan 2010 13:07:25 EST Can you hear what you are saying? I hope this is not too weird. Sometimes, when I am in a social situation, I can hear myself talking and saying dorky things. It's like watching myself in a movie while it is being made. Then, of course, I noticed how dorky it is and excuse myself to go the bathroom or get some water or whatever. Does that ever happen to you and what do you do about it? Sat, 23 Jan 2010 11:27:09 EST Fellow Dorks I need some work related advice Ok so you all know that I have been off work due to a lack of a normal speaking voice (which has now returned I just can't speak at high volume). I have not spoken to my doctor yet about my barium swallow test results (apparently it takes more than a 7 working days to get the results). <BR> <BR> That said my EI is going to run out soon (I think they are saying Jan. 23 is the last week I will be paid for, have to look into this and also speak with my doctor as to whether he thinks I should r... Fri, 15 Jan 2010 21:18:36 EST Dorky comments I was folding my oldest daughters jeans and talking on the phone with my sister (speaker phone, not headset) a while back. I had made the comment that I wanted to wear my daughters jeans. My sister very bluntly said "you will never wear her jeans". I was hurt until she said "she'll wear them out before you get in them". I was thinking size not actual pants. Talk about dork (or sarcasm) running in the family. Tue, 5 Jan 2010 09:49:30 EST Dorky songs on your MP3 or IPOD When the St. Going Marching in.

I loved Star Trek (TOS, NG and Enterprise, didn't care for DS9 or Voyager not sure why), Star Wars gave me many hours of entertainment and I remember one Hallowe'en spending the entire fireworks time chasing the neighbour boy pretending we were Hans Solo and Darth Vader, Quantum Leap still makes me feel warm and fuzzy and who didn't love a good Saturday morning spent watching cartoons? <BR> <BR> I have a picture of myself and my best friend in high school published in our y... Sun, 8 Nov 2009 22:26:56 EST I'm not even an original dork! I followed Blondedog here. I can't believe there's been a team for dorks all along and I haven't discovered it. I'm HOME!!!!!! Thu, 5 Nov 2009 14:48:09 EST How was your Halloween? We did our usual, party at the church then trick or treating. My oldest daughter's costume was a hit She was the only Flo (progressive lady) we saw last night. My youngest looked very cute in her poodle skirt.(There is a picture of them on my sparkpage.) We also took my nephew trick or treating with us. He had never been before and was so excited. It was fun watching him get excited over the candy he got at every house. <BR> <BR> Sun, 1 Nov 2009 13:10:19 EST what is a dork? leave you definition. I'm not even sure if I really am considered a dork. Is a dork someone between a nerd and a preppie? is a dork a tomboy? is a dork someone who refuses to grow up? is a dork a retro collector such as collecting vinyl or 8 track players? is a dork someone who dresses in mismatched plaid? what's a dork?

I do not care for most of the costumes available to cat, sexy witch, sexy robot, sexy pumpkin, sexy corpse, etc. Why do I have to be a sexy anything? <BR> <BR> Maybe I will get on a Wednesday Adams dress(if I can avoid the "sexy" version)or a Hogwarts uniform. There is a short kimono type dress I want to pick up but I need a back up plan since I will be getting ... Tue, 27 Oct 2009 20:21:00 EST Happy and sad I was at work today and someone told me the sweater vest I was wearing(yes I was wearing a sweater vest)made me look thinner. I graciously thanked her (thanks for the lesson blondedog) and said I was going to wear it the rest of the week (insert chuckle here). <BR> But I realized today I have no reason to dress up this year for Halloween. I love to dress up for Halloween. And my hair is short again, I make a great Harry Potter when my hair is short. Wed, 21 Oct 2009 16:28:19 EST How dorky is too dorky? I walk my dog in the morning. I usually walk the kids half way to school then head back to the house taking the long way. My question is how dorky is it to walk in my pajama pants. I usually just roll out of bed, throw on whatever clothes I grab, and put a hat on to cover my multicolored (you know sharpies come in lots of colors) sticking up hair. I walk on a quiet block away from the school so only the neighbors would see me, and they already know I'm crazy. Who's going to mess with a big gi...

Fri, 16 Oct 2009 19:22:37 EST I don't know if this counts as dorky... but I just spent the last half hour making my dog a bed. Its just a big pillow, but I made a removable cover out of flannel with monkeys all over it.

Thu, 15 Oct 2009 11:38:08 EST Hi, I'm Suzanne and I'm a dork. Here is my proof... I know the all the words to most of the "cult classic" breakup songs...Gloria Gaynor, Alanis, Social Distortion... and I sing them loudly when I think no one is listening. I love "like" almost everything 80's. I can recite lines to all John Hughes movies along with the characters. Oh and I have colored in my grey hairs with a sharpie. <em>20</em> Thu, 15 Oct 2009 00:16:59 EST Present your case. Introduce yourself and tell us why you feel you may be a dork.
