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

I guess when I think of geekdom I think of unconventional or not well socially accepted hobbies or interests. Which strikes me as unfortunate, since I'd like to encourage a feeling of social acceptance for such hobbies in myself and others.

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

Video games, cooking, reading and exercise, mostly. However, I wish to broaden my horizons by returning to more social ventures like board gaming and maybe pen and paper role playing games.

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.)

Video games and good food. Anything Pratchett.

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

Video games, board games, maybe pen and paper would be fun. New food can be interesting.

Introduction

I'm a tech professional with an inclination in my personal life towards video games, good food, and good booze.
