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

I love classic sci fi novels (Asimov, Herbert, Burroughs, Heinlein), comic books, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I'm a pretty big Trekkie and Star Wars fan compared to the average person, but I'm actually a bit of a novice compared to the hard core fans. I like some fantasy novels and sci fi movies but I tend to stay away from a lot of the movies or fantasy stuff if it gets too dark (I don't like scary things). I'm also a huge trivia dork!

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

I love trivia nights and goofy drama events. I also enjoy doing things outdoors - walks, kayaking, hiking, biking, running...and just watching movies or music events outdoors.

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.)

The Dune Series, John Carter of Mars, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, chick action flicks in general (love the Long Kiss Goodnight), Arrested Development, Community (with Dan Harmon), inside Hollywood stuff (I'm also a Hollywood geek), trivia, anything by the water, sushi, coffee, reading in general, writing (although I haven't had the guts to try sci fi yet), comic books, board games in general.

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

I'd definitely love to do some trivia and game nights, I'd also like to do some outdoor events, and movie watching events.


I'm a single mom of two elementary school age kids who moved to Madison in the fall of 2011. I've got some good friends but none who share my geeky interests so I'm looking to meet some other Madison geeks.
