Craves Smart People/Extra Terrestrials/Inanimate Objects/Brains

I crave interaction with very smart people. I am new to the area and miss my friends from college. I love nerds, karaoke (and singing of all sorts), musicals, board games, talking until the wee hours of the morning, exercising, cooking and baking.

What flavor of Geek/Nerd variant do you consider yourself to be? What kind of social happenings best fit into your particular theme of un-conforming?

I'm up for most things where my social anxiety will not be so on display - board games, karaoke, volunteering. Also, everything's better with booze. And ice cream.

Are you a Social Butterfly? Do you play well with others? Do you enjoy meeting new people? If so, would you be willing to help out our Nerd Posse leadership team with regularly recurring activities by occasionally hosting events at public locations?

Not yet, maybe some day.

When you finally discovered this group after an arduous quest thru Meetup for a flock of odd ducks who naturally “get” your unique brand of slightly off, did you squeal like a piglet, do a happy dance, then have to adjust your glasses? (BE HONEST!)

I adjusted my glasses, but there's no way I'm getting off this couch to do a jig.

    Hi Ashley,
    Love the idea of this group, although it seems that this is not an active group?! I may be interested in starting another unless there is something more you can say about the status of this group??

    Hello Ashley. You should give Thinkin' and Drinkin' trivia a try on Tuesday nights at Station 4. 1st place wins $50, 2nd place wins $25 in drink chips, and 3rd place is a mystery. In between rounds we also play metal bingo for drink prizes, and they are doing a drawing for upcoming shows at Station 4. Here is your chance to meet smart people, and get your drink on also. I hope to see you there, Mauler (Mike)
