coming out of the closet

Superman's got nothing on Vernon, the IT guy.
Check shirted, khaki clad, sensible shoed; this saviour of our troubled time flew into our new offices, commandeered the nearest keyboard, and fingers tapping faster than the speed of light, sound, and Chuck Norris combined, proceeded to network with an alarming yet thrilling alacrity. And for his final show of heroic hero-ness, Vernon of IT, gave us....oohs...aahs....a working adsl connection! Oh Vernon...swoon....

And yeah, that pretty much proves what I've known all along, but was just too afraid to acknowledge and embrace; I AM A GEEK. 24 hours without direct internet access, and I was two clicks away from convulsions and unladylike foaming at the mouth. But here I am, online and pacified...back in the womb, afloat in foetal fluid. (metaphors people, no ickiness or Matrix allusion intended)
