    I Am Definitely A Geek And I Am Happy With That

    I love scifi/fantasy novels, LOTR, Star Wars, Red Dwarf, Star Trek and the list goes on. I love D & D and other RPGs that involve dice, pencil and paper not a computer. Not to say I don't like computers. I programmed my aunt's Commodore 64 as a kid, my first computer of my...

    I did the girly-girl stuff Mum expected,

    but Dad's love of comic books and computer games stuck with me, boosted with anime in my teens. Still read some comics but not as much as in my teens (Elf Quest and Catwoman primarily).

    "Being a geek is all about being honest about
