In fact, we are proudly nerdy when it comes to birds and the environment and our goofy craziness for each other.
We are also extremely nerdy, wholeheartedly not-with-it and completely clueless on current television programs and the advertisements that are jammed within them.
Friends discuss the Dancing with the Stars show the latest Idol or some funny commercial that everyone knows the punch line.
Our faces go blank.
We have no idea what they are talking about.
Other than an occasional sports event with friends or Mitch and Adam, we just don't watch TV.
Our television doesn't have rabbit ears and we don't have a rooftop antenna, but our one and only TV is about one step above requiring them.
We do, however, love to snuggle in and watch anything and everything presented on DVD by David Attenborough.
Yes, of course we marched through all 5 disks of the popular BBC presentation of Plant Earth (narrated by Attenborough rather than Weaver).
But, we enjoyed Sir David long before everyone was talking about this show when it was presented on TV.
Naturally, we went crazy for The Life of Birds despite having to wait months for some other crazed bird/Attenborough fan to return to Netflix so they could pass to us.
Then we went nuts for The Living Planet, The Life of Mammals, Life in the Undergrowth... and last night we finished the Life in Cold Blood series.
Each is a beautiful journey in which Attenborough walks across various landscapes and whispers something like....(and this always makes us soooo jealous)....
"Here I am in off the Northern coast of New Guinea" or "Here I am in the rain forests of Costa Rica" or "Here I am in a cave in New Zealand" as we are glued to the TV watching spectacular bits of nature such as the mating of wood ants, the communication behavior of chameleons or the survival techniques of tiger beetles.
We learn something new and wonderful and charming from this gentleman with each view.
And, all commercial free.
And, it is Friday!
And, Attenborough in Paradise in next in the queue!
