About Mr. Nola Nerd

Kurt’s Bio

Eating in Florence

Enjoying a sandwich in Florence before going see Michelangelo’s David.

I’m a homebody that has wanderlust.  I hate going out but I hate staying in.  I’m a teacher that abhors being in front of a crowd. I’m a ball of contradictions.

I do like to travel.  I like to cook.  I love to eat.  I collect vinyl records.  I obsess over music.  I rather be reading a history book instead of writing this.  I would move to Edinburgh or Florence in an instant.  I can sit in a movie theater all day and watch movies (and, yes, I would pay for each one). I enjoy everything about comic cons but the crowds, so I suffer through them. I’m a history major who became a computer science teacher.

I have a supportive wife who has become my rock.  I have palindromic rheumatism, which is a form of rheumatoid arthritis (you can read posts about it here and here).  Some days I can move fine, other days my joints feel as if they are being torn apart.  It has hindered how much cooking (especially labor heavy cooking) I can accomplish.  Mrs. Nola Nerd has never let me get depressed and even though cooking used to be a passion, she reminded me that I do have other passions that don’t need as much from my body.  And I thought she was the perfect woman before my diagnosis.

  2. Hi, Kurt, thanks for the follow. What do you teach? I’m sorry to hear about the arthritis. Tht is really really rough. If you like watching the Wire, have you read the book, Homicide? It’s great. Also you might like Circle of Six.


    • No, I need to read the book. I’m writing a blog about the arthritis and how it changed, but didn’t limit me. I teach high school AP Computer Science…I’m self taught that it self has been an adventure. My wife teaches, at the moment, civics and free enterprise.
