Does this man look like a geek to you?/

Personally, I'd say 'yes'. I'd say it loud and clear. I'd yell it off a mountain top (since I'm moving to Vancouver soon). I'd put it in print. I'd even tell the world by voting for my own brother as the best geek blogger.

There is a link over there------------------->

If you want to "show your support" (which actually means "insult my brother to bring me great joy") vote for David's blog as the best geek blog! Hey, he might as well get something positive out of his eternal geekiness, right?

(Wait a second...he's a lead on a hit TV series; he's marrying a hot British lady; he has a famous dog; his first movie got picked up by MGM. Oh forget it...he's doing just fine. Vote for boingboing instead.)

Oh yes, he looks like a geek.
Whats's his business? Does his boss know he looks like a military-scifi-film-
tvshow-something? Thereby he does not really look very serious. ;o)
To remain in the tradition you also should marry a European.

*giggle snort*

He's your brother, so of course he is. There's this unwritten rule that all siblings are dorks, geeks or what-have-you-nots.

My sister and brother constantly claim I'm a weird changling.

The thing is, as the geeky sibling, I tell you that it it a mark of sheer pride on my behalf! I <3 my geekiness, and if I am not entirely off my mark your brother does, too. Do you really want to give him that joy of being literally CROWNED King of the (Blogging) Geeks? Imagine the power it would yield, and the holding of it over your head! For the rest of your life you would be made to deal with him being certifiably geeky. Heavy, heavy questions, Kate.

(In other news, I voted for that about a week ago so too late for me to fight for you ;))

Also, he looks about 16. How does he *do* that?

Voted for all the Hewletts everywhere! :-)
Yes, he is a geek, and that's why we all love him! LOL
Great idea to blog more often!!!

Geeks Rule!!

I'll have to second the notion that, amongst siblings, there is always a geek. In my family, I'm it! Both my brothers fall under the "I'm a car nut who likes to spend hours and hours fixing things on my car that aren't really broke so I can squeeze a few more HPs out of it" category. Also, they're both goalies, and everyone knows goalies are weirdos...

Guess I'll mobilize the forces and "get out the vote"! We can't have your brother lose to boingboing...

Already done. I voted for him when he first told us how cool it would be to be the Best Geek Blogger.

You're a good sister. You can tell him I said that.

What's in that box on the table?

Wow, yeah, I gotta agree with darklock here. Your brother looks really young in that photo. :P

Hewletts rock. The end!

Blogger Fran said...

Yup done and done. Your brother made me vote for him...something about pictures...ooops never mind. Now back to what I was saying. Yes David asked all of us very nicely to vote for him. He twisted my arm til I cryed uncle. LOL

Kate have fun in Vancouver don't forget us Torontonians over here.

Tell David that we want to see you a lot on Atlantis. You two are great.

Peace and Hugs

Yes he does! And that's why we love him ;)

I voted for Hewletts all round :D

That man is very brave to let someone photograph him from such a low angle.

Also, what's the deal with the snap on the ankle? Is David gearing up for McKay's big "break-away pants" moment? (Please, I'm choosing to ignore the fact that it's probably so the pants can fit over boots if necessary. Let me have my fun, thanks.)

Totally geek.

Hewlett's FTW \o/

Nearly having my phd in physics, knowing what a "THAC0" is and being club champion of my chess club i can definetley say that your brother does not fall into the "geekish" category. He is way too eloquent and has far too much contact with other people.

Ah, and you can google for "geek test". The one i know gives you bonus points for being a woman. Congrats! Hmm, why do i have to think about the whole "Meredith" stuff?

Oh my.. If be become any more geekier, I would have no idea what he'd be.... he's got his own little geekdom and how he's gotten so many squirrels enchanted I have no idea... must be the something about that hewlett name.

Oh, the geek chic of Hewlett. Or something. If he wins, does he get cooler or geekier?

Anonymous Masterchica said...

Oh-my-God! Your as good in "shamesly promoting" as your brother.

I didn't vote for him (nothing personal, I'm just too lazy) but you, you just bought my vote whith that add.

KUDOS on the smart sister!!

Hello Katherine,

Just one question:

It is nice to see you appearing with Worth and all, but is there any chance of seeing more of McKay's family? And can you tell me a little more about his parents?

Sorry if I am a bit more curious than most of your fans.

Thanks from NZ,

When insulting your brother makes both you and him happy, who can refuse?

relating his name to the Hewlett Packard printers, I guess he can't get any geekier :P and being SGA's greatest geek of all times... in both literal and theoretical meaning, he just IS one big geek! I just miss the glasses, the star trek posters and a McGyver fanpack! and OMG he's called Meredith... that should really be explained someday!!

but seriously, you'r brother is a great actor and SGA would be HALF as funny without him! I loved it that you, as his sister, showed up in the series, and I certainly hope you will be back to reveal more of the McKay family!

may they take over the world!!

There are several types of geeks including (but not limited to):
creepy-geeky, weird-geeky, adorable-geeky, and of course hot-geeky.

Now I've never met him but, seeing as he has a rather successful career, I will assume that he is definitely not creepy and probably not too weird. I personally find him to be an adorable geek.

Kate, Kate, Kate....I voted Hewletts - all possible catagories - some time ago. Of, course, I haven't been to the town library (libraries) in some time and really should go down to know, check out the newest books, videos, internet hook-ups....

Oh so tottalllly a flattering picture; you love him so so much :D

But deep down you know how much he wants the geek crown. You're letting him know you care, are you sure his head can take that? :P

Loves xx

hehe, as a self proclaimed geek I should know one when I see them and yes, I'd say he does look like a geek to me. ;P
I voted for Hewlett's all around a while ago. :)

David is a geek..
But he is a cute geek...

*giggle* Kate - are you aware he WANTS to win best geek blog? Of all the categories he's in - that's the one he wants. And I think he's showing off with this:
"While it's nice to be nominated for Best Celebrity Blogger, Best Blog of all time and Best Entertainment Blog how cool would it be to win Best Geek Blog!?...I'm just saying;-)" naturally, the whole squirrel community scampered off to vote. For your own enjoyment - have you seen the latest promo vid he just did? With the dreads... and, oh poor Mars! Here's the link, you cant NOT see this:

And moving to Vancouver... good choice!

Ha - siblings, you've gotta love em'.

Yes I'd have to say David does look a little geeky in this pic but hey, there is such a thing as 'geek chic' you know!....... sis & I class ourselves in that category!

Lovin' your BLOG, and glad you enjoyed our Cadburys chocolate while you were over in the UK!

Hope your move to Vancouver goes well.

Ha ha. Great pic! Did you finally get yourself a camera or did you steal one from some unsuspecting PA? ;D I wish I had a sibling to taunt. -goes and votes Hewletts all around-

Just found your blog (fantastic, btw) and was wondering if you had your own fan animal. I mean, Meredith has his squirrels, Nykl has his piranhas, and Paul has his tartan turtles, so how about yourself?
