You know when you’re a geek if…

I overheard a neighbouring cubicle worker talking about boys names for their new baby with someone else.

“We were thinking of Balthazar.”

I pipe in with:

“Wow. That’s a great geek name.”


“You know, Baltar, from Battlestar Galacticia… the human with the cylons…”

“Eh, no. Balthazar was one of the wise kings.”


Apparently Balthazar, which sounds very similar to “Baltar” which is the name of a character from the popular sci-fi show Battlestar Galacticia, is one of the wise kings from the story of Christmass.

Well, you learn something new everyday.
