Yesterday I gave the parking attendant near work my business card so I could get on the list to get a parking space (yes, San Francisco is that crowded) and he looked at me and said "geeksugar? You can't be geeksugar, you look like a movie star." In his defense, I was wearing giant sunglasses and he's one of those really sweet old men. In my defense, geek is chic people. My evidence? R&B superstar Amerie recently confessed she is hooked on The Sims. She is quoted in Contact Music as saying: "I am addicted to The Sims. I live out a virtual life online. I think it's seriously cool, but I guess it's kind of dorky. I've got Kelly Rowland into it too, and now we hook up in the game. Beyonce tried to join us, but she wasn't into it. Also I love to read science magazines. It's not very R&B I know." I say anyone who can rock the mic and stage like these two need not worry. Chic indeed.
