Welcome to Tuesday Terrific, where we celebrate getting over the Monday bump and picking up speed for the rest of the week.
Today, let’s get our geek on!

The Computer Programmer and the Frog
A computer programmer was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, “If you kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess.” He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will tell everyone how smart and brave you are and how you are my hero.” The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to his pocket.
The frog spoke up again and said, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will be your loving companion for an entire week.” The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to his pocket.
The frog then cried out, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I’ll stay with you for a year and do anythingyou want.” Again the man took the frog out, smiled at it, and put it back into his pocket.”
Finally, the frog asked, “What is the matter? I’ve told you I’m a beautiful princess, that I’ll stay with you for a year and do anything you want. Why won’t you kiss me?”
The man said, “Look, I’m a computer programmer. I don’t have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool.”
3. Don’t forget about the word geeks among us:

6. And, finally – what’s a geek post without an allusion to Schrodinger’s cat?
Have you done/thought/said anything particularly geeky lately? I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time,

Oh, the talking frog joke! I used to tell that one to my students when I was a software trainer. Excellent geekery, my friend!
Thanks so much, Amber! Yeah, that one’s a classic! So glad you stopped by (and so quickly!)
Most excellent Tuesday fun, Kathy!! I love the frog too, but that Taco Cat killed me. Where in the world did you find that picture??!
It’s amazing what pops up on the internet, isn’t it? I want to know who got the cat into that “taco” – I suspect sedatives were involved. 🙂
No not our geek on! Does it help that I love the day Tuesday? It’s not Monday and it’s not Friday. Certainly not Wednesday. But geeky? Nooooo. LOL! I love the Taco cat Kathy! 🙂
The Taco Cat seems to be the hands-down fave! What’s wrong with a little geek, Karen? Resistance is futile. 🙂
Hilarious! I’m so glad I now have the definitive Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock diagram. And I think that teen cartoon has my kid in it!
I was thinking the same about the Rock-Scissors-Paper-Lizard-Spock diagram, too, Julie! How geeky are we? LOL. 🙂
Outstanding! Seeing as Steve Jobs made being a geek cool, I would like everyone to know that my son is having a very geeky bar mitzvah. For real. I’m a little scared. Can you find me some good gifts for my little Tech Support. 😉
Check out my earlier post, Renee: https://kbowenmysteries.com/?p=1441 It has sudoku toilet paper (great for goody bags, LOL), and “wearable” keyboard pants. Sure to make a hit! Good luck!
The cat taco cracked me up! Thanks for the Tuesday belly laugh!
It’s so funny about the cat taco – I wasn’t even sure if it was too weird to put in and would only appeal to English majors, but I’m glad I did! So glad you liked it, Loree!
Love this!!! I can’t decide which is my favorite, although the nifty diagram for Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock cleared up a few things for me. Awesome blog!
Thanks, Janice! I love the Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock diagram, too. I still have to “study” it to remember all the combinations, haha!
ROFL!! Loved the talking frog!! OMG!!!
Done anything geeky…I am technically challenged BUT did learn to download some music yesterday and will master putting it on my iPod tonight…squeee!!! LoL!!
Good for you, Nat! We have to celebrate this little victories, right? 😀
Oh, hilarious! And the Taco cat photo–too funny! Thanks for making my day!
Any time, Jeanette! Glad you got a kick out of it. 🙂
Ha! I hadn’t heard the computer geek/talking frog joke–too funny!!
And I love the cartoon with the kid playing video games out the window. Isn’t that the truth? 🙂
All too true, Jill, LOL!
Fun stuff, Kathy! I love the palindrome. I’m a geek of the old fashioned variety.
There is a game/quiz/ book I had once with obscure clues for palindromes.
Must. Go. Find.
Google! Wait! I’m on my way.
LOL, Gloria! I love palindromes, too! “Able was I, ere I saw Elba.” Thanks for stopping by!
