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.

i'm so nerdy I wanna join that forensic team

and weird al is my hero :)

Aaaah. I've seen that video a too many times. But not too many times that I'd not watch it again. I want that hoodie. As it is I usually wear a band hoodie. (I don't mean a fashionable hot topic type band hoodie, I mean the hoodie that everyone in my school's marching band has. I'm not band.(But intend to rejoin next year.))
One, Two, Three and…

ugh! I hate those things… Back when I was in highchool hooded tops were a surfy thing. If you were cool you'd get one with “Quicksilver” on it… If you were a grommit it'd be “Billabong” or “Rip-curl”.

That was a while ago now… But I do have one zip-up tracksuit type top with a hood. Still, I wouldn't wear it in public.

There isn't any set fashion rule in my school, but I can tell you if there is some kind of social norm for clothing, I go against it. :P

That's from Clerks 2 isn't it? Still have to see it. That clip's hilarious XD

Oh, and another nerdy habbit of mine is that when I can't go to sleep I take my discman and just listen to some episodes of ‘The Mighty Boosh’ in bed.

Took a picture with George Takei from Star Trek. Also, I once tried to talk to Kevin Smith, but I couldn't think of anything to say, so I just stood there grinning at him for a couple minutes before he got awkward and left.

I cried over Aeris mostly because I'd really liked her, and included her in the party a lot. I was also one of the Aeris/Cloud folks. Tifa and Cloud's relationship seemed a LOT more forced; “HERE'S HIS CHILDHOOD FRIEND THAT HE ALWAYS WANTED TO PROTECT AND IF THAT'S ENOUGH LOOK SHE HAS BIG BOOBS AND IS GOOD AT MARTIAL ARTS!!” ~.~; They're cute in some ways, though. Still, when I heard that Tifa was added in “last minute”, I wasn't surprised.

That would be one more thing that could be included in my “nerdy” list, the “Fanalysis”.

When I watch anime, I watch them in marathons. I went through all of Pretear in one day. I went through all of Magic Knight Rayearth in one night. I went through all of Kyo Kara Maoh in four days. (39 episodes. I was trying to space myself out xD).

When I first heard about the Dragonlance movie that's coming out, I did searches on all of the people cast in the voice roles for each of the characters just to see what others thought sounded accurate to how I pictured them. XD I then sat down and drew a picture of Raistlin. All because I heard there's a movie in production. ~.~;

I'm also an English nerd. Sometimes I'll make mistakes, oftentimes because I simply am not paying attention(like, say, for forum posts ;) ). When someone abuses my precious language, however, I will flinch, twitch, and correct them immediately. If a friend shows me an essay, I'll ask them if they want a general review or if they want corrections, and if they just want a review, I'll hide all of my pens. *snicker* I also make fun of people using words in the wrong context, but best yet was when my friend was trying to say how Final Fantasy 11 Diverged from the other Final Fantasies, but instead said, “Doraned”. I couldn't figure out what he meant until he said, “Y'know, went away from, different direction?”

…<.< *cough*

I feel less nerdy than I have ever felt before after reading all of your posts. Thank you.

I just have an incredible mind for trivia. The more useless, the better. Particularly marvel comics continuity from 1979 to 1990. I am convinced that holding all of this trivia in my brain has forced all knowledge of algebra and geometry straight out of my skull.

I actually tried to play a game of D&D with a boyfriend once. It took about half an hour before I was overwhelmed with the urge to punch myself in the face and/or hide in a closet somewhere. Then I had to stop. It's just the utter sincerity with which some people play… it gives me a wiggins.

Speaking of which, I am a lesser Buffy nerd, and a greater Terry Pratchett nerd, but I try not to talk about his books to much, because you get looks. But I do own nearly all of them, which is saying something.

I worked at a Game Stop for a few months, which is how I discovered that I can enjoy video games and still not be a video game nerd. I mean… I like to play them. Not live them. (Although for the Shadow Hearts series, perhaps I could make an exception.) It was funny when guys came into the store. They'd give me a double take, gawk briefly as though I had grown a second head, then immediately walk to a male employee to ask their question. It was amusing.

I put 1 + 1 on a calculator and kept punching = sign until I reached 5,000.

I can trump a lot of the nerdy stuff here! I just remembered something…
Back in art school I got friendly with this guy who was really into tabletop gaming, he had all this cool looking warhammer 40k stuff. I just loved the looks of the figures and the artwork… Well anyway, I bought a few Eldar figures and played a bit here and there, but then I saw this huge Phantom titan in one of the game shops. It cost $450. And I actually bought it!
I just loved the look of te thing so much.

SO there you go, $450 on a totally useless big resin model that I can do nothing with… I still have thed damn thing too.

I had a free period and chose to spend it in the IT room…

The teacher started asking the girls what file names were. Like, what's a .jpg and can you describe it. I somehow found my hand in the air (despite me being in the ‘Senior’ year, and the class being about 3 years lower…) and becoming teacher for about 3 minutes. xD

'…so yeah, that's the difference between .jpg and and .png. COMPUTERS ARE FUN, KIDS!!'

..Probably sitting with my friend “playing” Mortal Kombat for about three hours. Except instead of actually playing, we spent our time trying to pause the game and catch the characters in compromising poses.

It was funny at the time, ok. lol!

I struggled to get myself away from the television to go to my badminton lesson while a Pokemon movie was on. I regret everything.

A couple of friends and I did did that with Smash Bros. Heheheh….

Anyway I own most of the DC Animated Universe on DVD. All of the Superman series from the 90's, 2 season of Batman (owned three, lent on away, friend lost it.) Justice League Seasons 1 and 2, Batman Beyond Seasons 1 and 2, Justice League Unlimited Season 1, and all the Batman animated movies.

Yeah…that's pretty geeky. Sorry, nerdy.

Nerdiest thing?

What about… I used to engage the fighters of the 101st keyboard division in different forums of war all over the internet.

Its funny thinking about it now. I remember those days. Lots of spare periods in college and wierd schedules… so I had no choice but to go to the school library for 3 fuckin hours everyday in between periods.

And there. Thats how I was drawn into the war… :)
