Oops--geek social error--

I sent someone a response to an e-mail that came off kind of harsh and nasty, because I was trying for a joke and failed. They called me on it and I reflexively responded, "Sorry, I failed my funny roll."

Sigh...

Was it just a failure, or a critical fumble? :)

Re:
No, I said it to a Techie, who just looked at me funny. It would have been a crit fail if I'd said it to my sweet little old lady boss, and then had to explain myself.

I don't think I've met you, hello :)

Re:
You haven't. A meme went around a few weeks ago where you post and ask your friends to recommend stuff to you, movies, books, music, and LJ friends. I think it was auliya who recommended you.

Hello. :)

Re:
Ah, Auliya and her 150 LJ friends :) That explains it. She's a neat person. Got me hooked on LJ.

You also failed your GEEK ROLL!

Or you made it. I'm not sure.

That's funny because it's self-referential, you see. :) :)

No, no...
You see, how it works, you have a continuum from 1 (high-functioning geek--that is, hides geekdom well), to 10 (Star Trek Boy, if he didn't shower from time to time). But also, you have a rollable Normalcy stat, which is how well you blend with normal society, which also runs from 1 to 10. But like Angst in White Wolf, or Healing v. Anti-Healing in the Elfquest RPG (heh heh...yes, I own that one), raising one's Normalcy limits one's Geek stat, and vice versa--while each ranges from 1 to 10, the total can never go above 10. Rolls on Normalcy are contested by one's Geekery, and vice versa. So I blew my normalcy check because my Geek roll overwhelmed it.

Crom!

Re: No, no...
This system doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's because it was designed by White Wolf.
