What are your geeky obsessions

everything Whedon, old school (80s & 90s) Marvel comics, fairly recent Dr. Who conversion, data visualization

Who is your favorite Author? Book? Movie? Game?

author: Douglas Adams book: Dragon Singer movie: Dogma game: Sentinels of the Multiverse (although I'm biased b/c I know one of the creators)

some of my co-workers who are awesome teachers, also Kitty Pryde

What kinds of locations would you like to have a meetup?

ones with free parking and/or easy access to public transit

Random geek fact about you?

As a child I decided to collect female action figures partly to try to give companies financial incentive to make a better variety of them.

Introduction

I grew up in St. Louis, came to Chicago for college, & stayed here. I live with my fiance & my cat, Diana. I work in education, and a lot of my friends don't have time to pursue geeky activities as often as I would like.
