So my wife and I recently joined you guys and are looking forward to meeting everyone. A little blurb then down to answers. We live in the Garland area of DFW and both avid gamers and scifi nerds overall. My wife is pretty hardcore into League of Legends and I run one of the most lucrative Warcraft daytime guilds across all the realms (I work third shift so daytimes were the only time to play). When trying to decide who is a bigger geek its a toss up. My wife is a hardcore Harry Potter nerd and I embrace my gaming geekiness with a passion. We both enjoy table top and rpg gaming as well as just about every fantasy / scifi movie known to man. We both work full time and go to school so our weekends are about our only free time. We would love to start a dinner and a movie division of the nerd couples club as we go almost every weekend.

So to questions...
