What are your geeky obsessions

Reading all kinds of books. Joss Whedon opus. Tarot cards (I am NOT into New Age!) Fiber arts: I spin on a spinning wheel and weave. Dr Who (I was a founding member of the Disciples of Rassilon a very successful fan club in the late 70's/early 80's.) Japanese Anime.

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

Mercedes Lackey (not so much Valdemar, but I wore out my copy of Fairy Godmother and had to get a new one!) Books, I guess it is the Fairy Godmother. Movies? Battle Beyond the Stars (Roger Corman--his S/F stuff was wonderful and not so gruesome either.) I learned D&D from people who learned it from David Arnson and Gary Gygax and played Stalking the Night Fantastic with the guy who invented it, but I am so Role playing gamed-out I would rather play board games right now.

Who are your role models?

A friend who mentored me a Tarot card reader (and designed the deck I use) is the biggest one. (the World Tree Tarot)

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

I live in Old Irving (Pulaski and Irving Park) so this area would be good for me. I can travel where ever and I am willing to car pool if needed.

Random geek fact about you?

I was a professional puppeteer for a few years. And a librarian.


I have been a geek all my life. (My mom told me I could never join the Miss America competition because my talent was reading!) So this sounds like my kind of group.

What Barbara G M. is saying about this Meetup Group

What a fun group! I look forward to having a good time with you guys again.
