Geeky interests?

Books: I geek out over classic literature in general (Twain, Wilde, Shakespeare, Dante, really almost anything) but on the nerdier side I like dystopians (Orson, Huxley), fantasy - especially dark or urban fantasy like most of what Gaiman writes or the Night Watch series or, of course, Stoker's Dracula - and sci-fi (okay, mostly Douglas Adams), horror ala Poe or Palahniuk, and, um, Series Of Unfortunate Events TV/Film: Almost all of Joss Whedon's work but especially Firefly (Buffy/Angel and Dr. Horrible as well, of course, but Firefly is probably my favorite sci-fi show ever), Star Wars, Pan's Labyrinth, and probably a lot more I can't think of right now. Oh, also I was a huge Sailor Moon geek growing up. I'll admit to that up front. Video Games: Pretty much any Final Fantasy or Legend Of Zelda game, Valkyrie Chronicles, Pokemon, Portal, Left 4 Dead (even though I suck at it...), and really any game with a good story line. I'm also a huge theater and astronomy nerd.

Why did you join?

Because I just moved here and couldn't fit any of my geeky friends in my suitcase. Also, I left most of my consoles and DVDs with my brother, so I'm trapped all alone on my geeky little island up here.

This is a group for people identified as female. If you are not a person who identifies as a female gender then you are looking for a co-ed meetup. If this is the case, please join our sibling meetup, The NYC Geek Adventure Group.

Hey, I'm Mina: a 25 year old soon-to-be English Literature Grad student who just recently moved here ("here" being "New York in general, Queens specifically") from Atlanta.
