It's official: I'm a geek

Last week, I went to a local Chinese restaurant with MB. After we ordered our food, I (oh my God, it hurts to write this) ducked out on her for a few minutes to (argh!) run to the RadioShack next door. I was looking for a part for my latest photography project. The other Radio Shack near me didn't have the part, but I thought maybe this one would. That's right folks: I left an attractive and intelligent female so I could... buy electronic parts. Way to go, Casanova! The upside to all of this is that I now have a homemade laser-beam camera trigger, complete with electronic delay unit. Lasers, homemade electronic circuits, automated camera shutter release. If I tried to measure the geek-factor of this, I would break the Geek-O-Meter.
