What are your geeky obsessions?

I've been obsessed with Harry Potter for well over a decade and have read each book in the series 10x+. I also have them on audiobook and listen to those frequently as well. I generally love any magical type of universe in books. Another favorite of mine is So You Want To Be A Wizard by Dianne Duane, though I haven't been very invested in it lately. When I was younger I was super involved in an online RPG in the Harry Potter universe. It was an obsession that got me grounded and led to my computer being taken away many times! Unfortunately the site shut down, but since then I think I've lived a more balanced life, haha!

Who is your favorite author? Book? Movie? Game? Etc...

As mentioned, I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter! I've also been getting to Marvel/DC lately thanks to my girlfriend (namely Batwoman -- though I've loved all the Captain America/Thor/Iron Man/Hulk/Avenger/Spider Man/Batman/etc movies I just haven't gotten to the comics yet). I've been reading the new Black Widow run, which is awesome! I love Pokemon! I used to collect the cards and make my own decks to battle with.

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

I'm open to exploring new places since I don't know this area very well yet!

Random geeky fact about yourself:

It was a running joke with my family that the only reason I studied abroad in London my senior year of high school was so I could find Hogwarts.


I'm Joie! I'm 26 years old. My girlfriend (Justine) and I moved to SD from Minnesota in August of 2012. I'm a barista at Starbucks and always smell like coffee :)
