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?

Nature lover ! "It's a bird. Big deal." Me: "NO! It's a nuthatch! The only bird that can hop down tree bark head-first." "Looks like a chickadee." "Very good ! It closely resembles a chickadee. Same colors, but a slightly longer beak and a couple more ounces of body weight." "Can we go now ?" My kids speak many foreign languages to which I am clueless. Pokemon, Bakugan, Zelda, Harry Potter, Sky Rim, Mario, anime, etc. This is their geek genius. My son is only 8 so we won't let him join. Amy has more. She's an absolute purist on some subjects. She hates Twilight, for example, because of the co-mingling of faeries and vampires.

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?

Sure, I could probably manage that.

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!)

WOW ! How did you know ? Are you watching me ? Sneaky ! I don't even have a camera. But seriously, the few member profiles I looked at had some other meet-ups in common with me.

Introduction

My daughter (born an adult) is a high school freshman. Miles away from "mainstream." It would comfort me to see her make friends ! Very kind and encouraging ones- before the attack by the opposites thereof. Can we join ?
