To be polite, I won't bore you with proof of my wordnerdery, such as my B.A. in Linguistics, my tragic childhood of hearing excerpts from The Manual of Style, or my bizarre fetish for drawing out grammatical tree diagrams when no one is looking.

Instead, I'll simply say that, in addition to being a Wordnerd, you will find that I also hold the titles of Ambulatory Thesaurus, Cartoon Doodler, Lover of All Things Vehicular, General Costuming Aficionado, Shameless Beer Snob, Default Rock Band 3 Vocalist, and Closet Guitarist, among other things.

(However, if you'd ever like to read the long-winded version, I'd be much obliged.)
