Flirting Pagerds

I need to come up with a catchy term for a Pagan nerd… but “Pagerd” just doesn’t cut it. If it did, however, the definition would be:

Pagerd (pa-GERD) n. Someone who, when her German instructor tells her he is going to see all 4 nights of “Der Ring des Nibelungen”, produces this as her German homework the next day:

Yes, that say “wælcyrge” in the *Anglo-Saxon Futhorc at the top (or a reasonable phonetic approximation), then below is a verse from the “Wið færstice” charm referencing the “mighty women” who “screaming, hurl their spears”.

I am Pagerd, hear me flirt.

*Why Anglo-Saxon? Cuz that’s what I know, dammit.

**Translation of the actual homework portion is unexciting, and after the cut

I like to eat sushi.
I like to drink lime fizzy water
I like to listen to Dream Pop and World Folkmusic
I like to go tribal bellydancing
I like to play Skyrim

I don’t like eat fennel
I don’t like to drink coffee
I don’t like to listen to Hip-Hop and Top 40
I don’t like to go to American Football
I don’t like to play Monopoly

I don’t like to eat strawberry ice cream, I prefer to eat hazelnut gelato
I don’t like to drink soda, I prefer to drink ice tea
I don’t like to listen to jazz, I prefer to listen to Chopin
I don’t like to go to sports, I prefer to go to the arts
I don’t like to play card games, I prefer to play word games

      Skyrim is like crack! I recently took a few months off from playing to focus on my studies, the the siren’s call has struck once more, and I am yet again plinking trolls with arrows and running from giants. It is a total Pagerd’s paradise.
