Ah yes, I've played video games long enough where I forget that I'm not actually in them. You know those red barrels in Resident Evil 4 you can shoot and they explode. I tried to shoot a red trash can in real life. I had my finger all ready and pointing at it. That was pretty embarrasing.

Hmmm… crying because a role play character died. That was something like 5 years ago, but since I needed to grieve for a fictional character, I guess that tops even my wearing the Indiana Jones hat. Hehe.

The Winner!

Heh. So wonderful to know I'm the queen of geekiness. must mean my fantasy trilogy really kicks ass. XD

Participated in Dairyland Classic in undergrad.

What this is is a gaming competition. Different groups all roleplay at the same time for AS LONG AS THEY CAN. If a group has someone who falls asleep, they're out of the running. So yeah, I think we spent like 24 hours of gaming straight through before our last minute ad on decided he was too tired. *shakes fist* Now the real mistake was staying up after that to go see Monsters Inc. When I got up after the movie, I couldn't feel my legs. It felt like I was tottering around on stilts.

The whole thing was worth it, though, if only to see the gamemaster curled up in the fetal position after having poured grape pixi stix in his coffee. }:D

Let's see…I did an essay on DnD, on how it can be played by more than just nerds, and managed to convince about ten people from that class to start playing.

I cried when Aeris died; mostly because I'd spent most of the game building her up…but yeh.

Oh, and I had an intense fangirl crush on Sephiroth for a long time(I still have an affinity for him, but not nearly as bad nowadays). I even drew him into a comic where he became my boyfriend(And in a storyline where we went to the future, my husband XD) when I was 14. O_o;

I dyed my hair red, because I've loved the hair color red ever since I saw The Little Mermaid. I've since toned down the color to a nice auburn.^^

Though there's one thing I don't get. Why cry over Aeris, when Tifa is there?

Oh and about Shaun of the Dead: I fucking love that movie.

I went to the Art Institute in Chicago and wouldn't leave the room that Marcel DuChamp's Coat Rack was located. Which, for those of you who don't know, is exactly what it is: a coat rack hanging from the ceiling.

This probably is more eccentric then nerdy but whenever I travel, I like to send postcards to myself. I would pick out postcards I like, write about what I did that day, and then send the postcard to myself. The only time I didn't do that was when I was in Japan and I still kick myself for not having thought of doing that when I was there. :S

I'm not very nerdy, but my friends are so they usually drag me into nerd stuff.

My friend was looking for card sleeves, so on our way home from work we had to go to a dork-shop, and all the nerds were their doing their nerd things, I was like “Damn just walking into this place made my charisma drop 3 points.”

The first time I went to a con to promote my comic I made it half a day before I had to leave and go watch a jackie chan movie, followed by a night of bars to get back to feeling normal.

Oooooh DuChamp. If only people wouldn't KEEP trying to sell off readymades in the same manner. T_T Although I did spend some time by the “This is not a pipe” painting. But that's mostly because I had the right t shirt on. I didn't even know it was at the Art Institute!

Oh really? Oh thank God. Because my friends thought that was the weirdest thing I do every time I go on a trip with them. They usually laugh…but then I laugh when I have a lot of money and suitcase room leftover because I didn't spend hundreds of dollars on souvenirs.

So I guess it evens out. :)

I got excited by The Treachery of Images too. :D Oh God I had a blast at that museum. I got a little giddy at MOMA as well. I think it was just exciting for me because whenever I learn or hear about these artworks, it was from a book. So for the first time ever, I get to see them in real life.

Bah, there are only two times I've ever even felt sad when a game character died: DuGalle (or however you spell it) in StarCraft and the Boss in Metal Gear Solid 3.

I hope you guys aren't having an incredible hard time, ‘cause I’m even being laughed at because of my Batman t-shirt |=(
Errrr, nerdiest things of me would be spending HOURS in a comic book shop just watching front covers and titels and having LOADS of fantasies about Wonderwoman.

Edit: Oh, and also quoting lines from the britisch claymation series ‘Rex the Runt’ a series that no one seems to know about…

Recently? I don't go through a day without doing something nerdy. It's innate. Let me thing of a good one…
Okay. So the other day I was playing DDR on heavy mode. I kept playing this one song over and over again because, well, I kept losing, over and over again. So I was in the middle of it, my life bar almost depleted and I'm like “Okay, just focus in and do this” and I did and I started nailing all the steps. And then I was like “Holyshi. I think I just did the dancing equivalent of the Healing Touch in Trauma Center: Under the Knife….” And then, “Wow. That was a geeky analogy.”

And then there was that one time in Anatomy and Physiology honors. The days topic was cerebrospinal fluid and my teacher was relating the experience of having a spinal tap. So I raised my hand and asked her something to the effect of “Did they have to turn anything up to eleven?” And she had no idea what the hell I was talking about. :(

I've pulled all-nighters doing nothing but reading fanfics/comics and watching anime. I regularly attend conventions. When I was really depressed over a icky relationship issues last year the thing that pulled me out of despondency was Batman. The list goes on but I think I'll stop here.

ETA: Also this.

Oh lord, I think I am a nerd queen. It's not that I'm a NERD, I just happen to do a lot of tremendously nerdy things.

Costumes made and worn in 2006:
Red twi'lek sith
Slave Leia
Barriss Offee
Mara Jade
Catwoman
Chun Li
Ninja Boy
Aayla Secura
Padme Arena
Lychotia Grey
Mirelle Bouqet
Harley Quinn (Again)

I've actually been a GUEST at a convention, did a talk on making your own slave leia metal bikini.

Brought a towell to see Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy in the cinemas.

Felt up the main actor from 2001: A Space Odessy (at his request).

Talked about how down-right sexy kinky boots are with one of The Doctor's (Who?) assistents.

Bought a tee with the coding printed on it for how to duplicate Agent Smith in the Matrix (THIS IS THE BIGGEST NERD THING EVER).

I've done a charity walk with stormtroopers, drawn a jam raffle for old ladies as Catwoman, and to top it off… did a convention stage thing with Ray Park (ie Darth Maul)… of which I can offically say in all honestly, I've dueled Darth Maul while dressed as a Jawa.

Oh, and I cried when Aeris died too :(.

There's this theory that if you're really mean to Tifa, she'll jump infront of Sephiroth.. but no, it's just a cruel myth. Same with if you dig around the excavation site long enough you can find the key to enter midgar again and go heal Zack in the tunnel, who'll join you to bring Aeris back. Another cruel hoax.

It's so unfair! She was so beeaaaaautiful *tears*.

Lord, I've even drawn a comic about her coming back. HEHEHE we should start an Aeris appreciation club.

What a coincidence… I just listened to the entire radio series on my computer the other day while I was drawing a page of Pinky TA, And I'm reading the books again now too, (not mostly harmless though, that sucked): that's both nerdly and surprising; surprisng because it took them several years to make and broadcast that whole series, but takes less time to listen to than create an entire page of Pinky TA.

Another nerdly thing I once did was I actually went to a scifi con! To enter some art pieces in a comp they were having… I won prizes… I didn't hang around there though, I just didn't feel comfortable for some reason.

One more: This year I'm on my school's forensics team and for my piece I'm doing H2G2. So that's literally about eight minutes of dialog I can quote from the book. And while I don't bring a towel to competitions, I do brink a Cthulhu plushie.
