Who here loves all things geek?

I am talking things like Dr. Who, Star Wars, Star Trek, comic books, gaming and all that fun stuff.  

I have to say that I love all of the above.  I have ever since I was a kid.  I was that weird girl who would stand in the comic book aisle of the local grocery store while my parents shopped, taking in all the new adventures of Batman, Spiderman, the X-men and anything else that caught my attention.  I love graphic novels and have a whole portion of my book case dedicated to them.  When it comes to gaming I can't get enough.  I table top game (I play D&D) and have a playstation.  Don't give me Call of Duty, give me something fun to play like Skyrim, Gran Turismo or Resident Evil.  The only thing I have to do is catch up on my Dr. Who episodes.  I just started the season with David Tenant as the Dr.  Rose is still his companion so I am WAY behind!

Are there any moms here like this?  Am I all alone?

Not so much into the trendier things like Doctor Who and super heroes, but video games, Star Trek, Harry Potter, science fiction and fantasy books in general, etc...

I love the original star trek and stuff like that, I'm not huge on the video game side.

I love Dune, but I don't think I've read every book in the series. I also love the Ender Saga by Orson Scott Card, almost anything written by Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, and David Brin, and I love checking out sci-fi anthologies from the library to discover more great authors.

I didn't like how Angel ended. 

I love DW, HP, LOTR, and so many more
