Welcome, Fellow Gnerds!

A gnerd [pronounced, "NER-dh"] is a noun.
It is used to name someone who both reads Asimov and can fix a computer virus.

We know every line from Dr. Horrible and the subplots
and backplots of Who.

We lurk around bookshelves.

We listen to Josh Groban and Chameleon Circuit.

We are every Judith, Max and Russell.

We congregate conventions.

We are the next generation.

List #8

Top Ten Actors* With Fantastic Comedic Timing
(in no particular order, as usual)
10. Ben Stiller- as seen in such films as Night at The Museum, Dodgeball, and Zoolander.
9. Eric Stonestreet- Modern Family's Cameron. His partner Cameron, played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, is also hilarious, so I consider them a package deal (but not that way).
8. Ty Burrell- This guy is friggin funny. Like, I saw him in some crappy remake [of an eighties movie that rocked my world], and he sucked. Then, I saw him on Modern Family, and he made me want to make a catchers mitt, steal a ball from a young child and ride bikes with my dad.
7. Ricky Gervais- The dude's a comic genuis.
6. Joel Moore- You know him as J.P. from Grandma's Boy and Owen in Dodgeball, and I love him.
5. John Candy- It is in memorial of John Candy that I watch movies like Spaceballs. Watch it, I dare you not to laugh.
4. Jason Segel- Whenever I see an episode of How I Met Your Mother, Jason Segal makes me believe I can find my own Marshmallow. Also, his facial ticks and features make everything he says and does funnier. Plus, the guy can write some funny stuff. The naked break-up scene in Forgetting Sarah Marshall made my life worth living (for the comedy in the situation...not the nudity. Get yo head outta da gutter).
3. Neil Patrick Harris- Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, The Emmys, The Tonys, HIMYM, Harold&Kumar Go To White Castle, Harold&Kumar Escape Guantanamo Bay [best pseudo-death scene in a movie EVERperiod]-anything the guy is in is automatically a must-see. The comedy force is strong in this one.
2. Jonah Hill- Accepted- "Ask me about my weiner!" Yup. Best thing ever.
1. David Henrie- The sole reason I watch anything on the Disney Channel. Honestly, he is the best thing about that show, and his comic chops are terrific. He was the reason I wrote this list.

Bonus: Chris Farley. Yessiree. He lives IN A VAN, DOWN BY THE RIVER!! This is my ringtone, and not for lack of reason.

*Actors of the male variety.

Word of the Day: "Contagion"
What I Want Right Now: Vegan Cinnabun
Lesson Learned Today:
    You can be a diva and still like Monsters, Inc.
