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?

I am too a point. I am enough that I paid to go to PAX, the huge video game convention in Seattle. I loved it! And there are certain things I totally go geek over but not everything.

Big Bang, elementary (Sherlock), brainy humor... Board games over videos but the geeky games like munchkin/flux/killer bunnies... And computer humor. I do get some of the other geeky/nerdy humor (ie: Star Wars, Star Trek, lotr....) but not a huge fan girl

I am a bit nervous.  Disney is doing them but supposedly the guy who produced the Pirates of the Carribean is doing it so it is rumored to be extremely dark.  


OK yeah I can't wait either... *squeel*!

I love Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Wars, and various other scifi shows, I play a plethora of video games, Magic the Gathering, and devour books. My favorite author is John Scalzi. I watch several anime. Still, I wouldn't say those are what qualifies me as a geek. It's the obsessive quality with which I enjoy the things I like. Baking, shows, books, just learning things in general. 

I am NOT Karl. But I might still eat your hands.
