Introduction

Carpe Diem! Some of my favorite things: zoology, botany, geography, history (particularly Medieval), learning new things, and meeting new people. Humanity is fascinating to me and I would probably be very happy as an anthropologist/socio­logist.

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?

More or less hippie variant, I love nature and life and am pursuing a degree in Sustainable Agriculture. I have little preference on social happenings, but being outside is a plus!

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?

Yes, yes and yes. Perhaps some disc golf, axis and allies, nature hikes, or geo caching (though I don't have a GPS).

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 thought, MAYBE I'LL FIND SOMEONE TO PLAY AXIS AND ALLIES WITH ME!!!!!!!

    Hi John, I will have my Nordic (esp. Norwegian) art work in a booth at Norway Day in Minnehaha Falls. In January, I joined the Norwegian Folk Dance Lag. We meet the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month during the school year. Our instructor is great and everyone is welcoming. http://www.tcscandinavian.org/dance.h...­­
    My website, if you have the time and inclination is: www.claireannet­hoen.com
    Tusen Takk! Hope to see you on the 8th!
