This all started with a conversation at the office about iPhones. Anyone that knows me knows that I call my iPhone the iPrecious, I love it that much, but it's also a not so subtle homage to my love of the Lord of the Rings...
Co-Worker: You call it the Precious?
Me: Yeah, you know, from the LOTR.
Co-Worker: ...blank stare
Me: Please tell me you've seen the LOTR.
Co-Worker: I've seen the first one, when my son was small.
Me: So you know how Golem calls the ring his precious.
Co-Worker: Well, I've seen it up until the train comes into the station.
Me: The train?
Co-Worker: Yeah, the Hogwarts train.
Me: THAT'S HARRY POTTER! How can you possibly confuse The Lord of the Rings with Harry Potter?!!
Co-Worker: Is that the one written by J.K. Rowling?
Me: *shaking my head* Oh my god, I don't know how we can possibly be friends.
This is a classic example of why nerds flock together.
