I'd say I'm an SF nerd, and then some. I love my TV shows, and hardly a weekend passes that I'm not at the movies. My comics collection is sadly limited, but I'll consume anything with the name Gaiman or Ellis on it. I'm a semi-professional costumer and co-run a cosplay blog. In my spare time (wait? what spare time?) I do academic work on gender in media and fan culture. Don't worry, though, I promise nothing on this site will turn up in one of my papers.... Probably. Right now, I'm counting down the days til the return of Doctor Who, The Venture Bros. special, and my long-awaited trip to Dragon*Con. In the meantime, I have books by Harry Harrison and Neal Stephenson to keep me company.
I'm definitely social, and I love planning parties. I'd be happy to help out, but, being new to the Cities, I still flounder a bit when I have to venture outside my neighborhood. Maybe some time in the far distant future, once I actually, y'know, know of places to go.
A little bit. Inside. Maybe. :)
Hi, I'm Jo. I just moved to Minneapolis, and I'm looking to meet fellow geeks in the area. I heard about this site from someone at Can't Stop the Serenity, so you know I'm here through legit nerd channels.
