Proud to Be A Geek Girl

| Thursday, May 27
Angela at High on Life created a blog award for the geekiest of geek girls out there! I think her idea is spot on! 

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!
***
With this award comes great responsibility. I must list ten geeky things about myself.

1. My nickname is Starbuck, or sometimes Toaster.
2. I can relate to Dr. Sheldon Cooper on too many levels. 
3. I randomly spout physics knowledge when the situation calls for it. 
4. I wrote Newsies fanfic on a Prodigy BBS group when I was 12.
5. I played Envious Magic, a Harry Potter forum RPG for years. 
6. I consider myself a Browncoat
7. Whenever my husband randomly quotes Futurama, I can tell you who said it. I'm often asking him why he's quoting Zoidberg.
8. I'm in the process of making costumes for Dragon*Con.
9. I could define the word "nocturnal" when I was three. 
10. I played WoW Vanilla when it came out in November 2004. 

I bestow this award upon two wonderfully geeky girls whose blogs I love to read! 

Enjoy, and perpetuate if you so choose!

Angela said...

Yay, so glad you like Kara. ^_^ Also, I love that you were on a HP RPG forum! So cool! I love Harry Potter and actually, Jen and I met because of Harry Potter. ;)

Also, Futurama is AWESOME! Who is your favorite character?

Kara said...

@Angela
I LOVE Harry Potter! I've been a big fan for years. And my fave Futurama character is Leela.

Eleni said...

Yay for Browncoats!

That Harry Potter thing is cool. Man, I so wish I could have gone to Hogwarts.

Melissa said...

Congrats, fellow geek girl! :P

Regarding #7 - Matt and I (and all of my friends, really) are SUCH random quoters. Some of our conversations consist entirely of "[quote]" ... "hahaha! [finish quote]" ... "haha! [continue with next line of dialogue]" etc., etc. You know what I mean.

RAY J said...

lol hubby and I do the quote thing too!

<3 Futurama - I got hooked on that one in college when it was on Adult Swim, Leela, Fry and Bender were my favorites.

Kara said...

@Eleni
I spent so much time on there, I think because I wished I had gone to Hogwarts, too!

@Melissa
I was just watching an ep of Buffy where Xander and Willow were playing "Guess that Movie Quote"! LOL!

@Ray J
Aren't we all just too sickeningly geeky-cute? And you do know that new eps of Futurama are actually coming back in June on Comedy Central!?

Emily Jane said...

Aaaaaaaand these are just ten of the reasons why I love you. Totally heading over to check out the other blogs today too :)

Kara said...

@Emily
Thank you! You're so sweet. :) Hope you enjoy finding more geek girl blogs to read!!

Sadako said...

Because Zoidberg is awesome! Fry, disemboweling in your species--fatal or non?

michelle said...

Amy said...

Woohoo, thank you! I shall work on my list of 10 geeky things.

I admire that you can add physics into a conversation. I never grasped that subject... or math for that matter.

You have no idea how much I identify with Sheldon. He is the picture of Aspergeriness. Also, my boyfriend's head is shaped like Sheldon's. Also, I think I want to marry Sheldon, if I don't marry Mewtw, and if Sheldon were, of course, real.
