10 Geeky Things About Me

I was recently given a fun award for being a geeky girl by fellow geek girl bloggers Kara of Crayons & Cylons and Pinkie Larue



The Geek Girls Unite award!

And here are the rules:
List ten geeky facts about yourself and...
Pass this award onto your favorite female geeks!


1. My next tattoo is going to be "You can't take the sky from me."

2. I spent almost two hours online trying in vain to find the correct type of lace for my upcoming Padme costume because it had to be right (no luck sadly).

3. I instantly know what any of the following mean: WoT, LotR, FotR, RoK, RoJ, ANH, etc.

4. I work quotes in from Star Wars, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, etc. into everyday conversations whenever possible.  Jayne quotes are especially good for the workplace.  In a meeting once I said, "What you plan and what happens ain't exactly ever been similar."  No one got the quote of course, but I was amused on the inside.

5. I like to wear costumes and plan to wear a different costume for every day at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

6. I have a specific "shelf of nerd" for all my graphic novels and comics.  It's also covered in toys.

7. I used to have complex theories on paper about the Wheel of Time books and regularly debated in the forums on WoT Mania (site is no longer up).

8. I've thrown a dice at my DM and hit him in the head.

9. I know every word of dialogue and songs for Dr. Horrible and the musical commentary.

10. I could win a Star Wars spelling contest.


I pass this geek girl award on to  Mary of Three Years of Roses, Ruth of Being Ruth , and Geek Girl Diva (if you have already completed this, my apologies, still catching up from this week).

  4. You are an awesome geek!

    I love throwing in quotes from LotR, Firefly, etc. Also things people say always remind me of quotes and songs from things, even if it's just a single word that they said, so I'm always referencing quotes in conversations.

    I was on the beach once searching for unsecured networks to mooch off of, and I found a network someone had named Kashyyk. Points for going with a Star Wars reference, but fail on the spelling.

    Thanks for reminding me that I still have to read the latest WoT book.
