Talk Nerdy to Me Collaborative Project

I don’t consider myself a nerd. However, if you ask the people that teased me in school and called me a nerd, four eyes and all other kinds of names they would say I am. I was a good student who got great grades. People always wanted me to help them with their homework or they wanted to copy my answers when taking tests. Does that make me a nerd? I don’t think so.

When I was asked by my friend Lene of Not Your Everyday Cookie if I would like to be part of a nerdy Valentine’s Day project I said yes, of course. I love participating in collaborative projects but I’ll admit that I really struggled with this one. I Googled ideas and changed my mind about a hundred times. I kept thinking who do I consider a nerd? Only one person kept coming to mind. Milton from Office Space.

If you’ve never seen the movie then the cookie and the saying will probably make no sense to you. I put my edible markers to use again designing this cookie and you’ll see them again soon. I was proud of myself for actually sketching Milton instead of using an image from the internet on the cookie. I’m horrible at sketching but I think I did alright.

Now take a look at all the other wonderful cookies in this project. Be sure to visit their sites and show them some love.

1. Jennifer – Not Your Momma’s Cookie
3. Cristin – Cristin’s Cookies
4. Jill – Jill FCS
