What is the geekiest/nerdiest thing about you?

I'm good on a conversation, but almost *all* of my conversations end up with me talking about something extremely nerdy. My skill, in that regard, is that I know a little (or a lot, sometimes) about tons of different things. Some of the things that are perhaps surprising are my Redneck Arts: guns, distilling, fishing. I'm bad at all three, but pretty knowledgeable. The geekiest thing about me absolutely has to be "the computers". After that, it's probably the fact that I'm an information sponge. And the jokes relating to that.

What are your favorite books, movies, comics, tv shows, etc?

In books, Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn, Elantris, Way of Kings) and Brent Weeks (The Night Angle, Black Prism/Blinding Knife) top off fantasy for the moment. I just finished The Wheel of Time; bittersweet. Peter Hamilton tops off SciFi. I read a lot of non-fiction. TV? TV has to either make me smarter, or much, much stupider. Mythbusters or Arrested Development, both great. Haven, on SyFy, is great; coastal Maine is probably the prettiest place I've ever been. I also like to cook, and I'm a fan of Chopped. Otherwise, I tend to leave the TV on as background noise.

What would you like to see out of this group?

People who might be interested in going to quirky things. I need to get out of the house more : )


SciFi/Fantasy reader, engineering geek, CS nerd, embarrassingly adamant fanboy of Assassin's Creed and X-Men, Arnold impressionist, wannabe comedian.
