7 Reasons I'm a Big Geek

I think, deep down, everyone geeks about something. Here's a list of some of my terribly geeky traits! 

  1. I picked my phone based on the fact that it has a full keyboard and can be hooked up to my laptop to use as a modem.
  2. I check my email every day when I'm on holiday. (and about 8 times a day when I'm not!)
  3. If I skip a day's blog-reading my Google reader has over 300 posts waiting for me!
  4. I identify with the boys on The Big Bang Theory.
  5. I almost skipped a valuable day's revision to travel to Milton Keynes to get Ben Browder and Nathan Fillion's autographs, and only the price put me off.
  6. I find my law course fascinating!
  7. I own, on DVD, a documentary about BBSs (it's realy interesting!) and Helvetica, which is just awesome.

Are you a geek too? What makes you geeky?

1. I sort my books by height, tallest to the left, smallest to the right, and wish that publishers would publish every book by an author the same size so I could sort them by size AND author.

2. I understand geeky tshirts even though I am a female EngLit student.

3. xkcd is the prominent feature on my iGoogle

4. If I want to shut some stuck program on my laptop, I go via processes, not task manager.

5. I am a girl with a Steam account.

1. I spend a lot of time with my boyfriend - although each of us are on separate computers looking at our own things.

2. I enjoy lectures (school-related and otherwise).

3. Typography is very important to me. If I don't like how something looks, I might not read it.

4. I, like Anonymous, correct other people's grammar. Notoriously.

5. I feel naked when I don't have my cell phone with me and unproductive when I don't have my laptop with me.

- I am a giant internet nerd and run my organization's social media strategy, which means I spend 50% of every day on Facebook and Twitter, and I don't have to hide it. I often say to my coworkers, "Did you see what happened on Twitter today?"
- I LOVE the library. Probably more than is normally acceptable for a young person.
- I've seen the entire "Cowboy Bebop" series four times. And saw the movie in the theatre. By myself.
- I've seen every episode of "Brotherhood 2.0" http://www.brotherhood2.com/index.php
- Ditto to having a blog! :)
