You guys seem like a really cool quirky group and I love meeting interesting people who won't judge me for my occasional lapses into silence (though this doesn't happen mid-conversation, thankfully). Also your main picture is from Freaks and Geeks. Come on. Joining was a no-brainer.
Hmmm...as a hardcore fantasy/science-fiction geek growing up, many of my favorite people were fictional characters who could also physically kick ass, which led me to getting my black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Even though I seem pretty "girly", I love going to boxing fight nights and sparring matches. Not blood-thirsty, I swear. I just appreciate the athleticism (and the shirtless men).
Oh drat, I just gave it away in my last answer but the desire still stands so here it is again: I want to go to the 3rd Street Fight Night held at a boxing gym in Potrero Hill. It's a night where a bunch of the student graduates get together and compete for the night. And as a disclaimer: I swear I'm not some violent fiend.
I'm a 23 year old recent transplant to the bay from Atlanta. In my free time (time spent not studying and/or drinking) I write which means that thus far many of my SF interactions have been fictional in nature. I think it's about time to change that.
