How do you relate to the term "geekery" or "geek"?

I was the kid who stayed inside to read books or watch ST:TNG on Saturday afternoons instead of going outside. When my family got its first computer, I spent time learning the hows and whys of its workings, even when I had nothing obviously productive to apply that knowledge to.

What are some of the activities that you enjoy doing? (You may wish to share, in particular, any that might be considered geeky.)

PC games, board games, and building/upgrading/tweaking computers (and, aspirationally at least, my bike).

What are a few of your favorite things? (Book titles, games, places, movies, tv shows, restaurants, band names, brown-paper-packages-tied-up-with-string, etc.)

Star Trek (but ENT makes me cringe), Firefly, BSG, Dune, LOTR, Settlers of Catan, League of Legends, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, spicy food. Also, Texas.

In joining Geekery, what type of meet-ups are you hoping to find? (Gaming, evenings out, new restaurants, trivia, movies, outdoor stuff, museums, etc.)

Pretty much anything from the suggested list. My fiancee and I are looking for neat ways to spend time with new people, and new ways to spend time with neat people. My interest in any specific event comes down mostly to scheduling and cost.
