great big geek  

There has to be a certain critical level of 1980s girl geek cred (or something, cred may be too kind a word) accorded to someone who, in search of a specific word, thinks, “Synchronicity, no, that’s not the word I want, what is it, it’s the name of Jem’s hologram computer…”

(Synergy, that was the word I wanted.)

I still think of Jem and the Holograms when I hear "synergy." LOL (As well as "misfits" "pizazz" and one other one that I'm now blanking on.) I also think of Jem whenever I run into characters (usually in my gaming circles) who have names that are similar to Jericha.

Which all goes to show how something sticks when it's was your first exposure to those words ;)

Now I've got that silly theme song in my head and it's all your fault! I'll be hearing it all day . . .

Ditto. And with a migraine where no thought lives, I can see 'Jem, jem is my... is my... jem, jem is my, is my.... damnit!!' happening a lot today. ;)

Catie's outrageous, you're saying?

LOL Outrageous is the word I couldn't think of in my comment.

Did you have sisters? Or strange taste in cartoons as a young lad? ;)
T.M. Thomastmthomas on August 26th, 2009 12:58 pm (UTC)
I have a sister, but really...i'd watch anything that was on in the after school cartoon slot.

Dude...forget Barbie. Sami and I had all the Jem dolls. And the sticker books. And the coloring books.

I still have the coloring books.

Yay, Jem! Does it make me a geek that at one point, I had the dvds?

When my local video store was going out of business, I picked up their tape collection of Jem. Unfortunately, I no longer own a VCR.
kitmizkit on August 26th, 2009 05:06 pm (UTC)
I've actually thought about buying them... :)
