I guess I am somewhat of a nerd as well. DH and I game together as much as we can (whenever DS is asleep) and lately we have been obsessively watching Sherlock Holmes. We're both crazy about legos and can't wait until we can share our collection with DS. DH is in school for mechanical engineering and I'm majoring in anthropology (thinking about adding math for a double major!).

We museum folks love librarians!!  And, DH and I adore Doctor Who.  When we finally get a place to live, I'd love to meet up!  Right now I'm looking at Falls Church and Arlington, but we're still feeling our way around via internet at the moment.

Let's see... The ringtone on my cell phone is the Monty Python's Flying Circus theme song. All of the children's books I own are in Latin. I play WoW. Back when we had cable, I got the more expensive package, just so we could get the Science channel. I think it's the only one we ever watched. Now, we just watch documentaries and Ancient Aliens on Netflix.

 

I'm more of a science nerd. My husband is more of a history and outdoors-y/survivalist type nerd. 

 

We are very close to DC/NOVA, too! smile.gif


Another DC/NOVA family--yay!  My husband is the one who loves his books in Latin.  He's very proud of his Harry Potter version (though he's not yet learned to read it!)  Good to know there are folks around.  Hopefully we can meet some when we get there!

Oh, hi!

 

That would be awesome.

 

I found this Doctor Who onesie on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/77929790/doctor-who-little-timelord-handmade and there's a cute t-shirt on Threadless: http://www.threadless.com/product/2899/Doctor_Hoo/tab,guys/style,shirt. I always think 10 looks a little tweaked.

 

My other geek interests include a lot of sci-fi tv: BSG, Firefly, Star Trek, Stargate, Eureka, The X-Files, probably a few more I'm forgetting about.

That onesie is awesome!  We're with you on all those shows.  The new BSG was especially amazing.  And, I think Daniel Jackson is adorable.  In fact, I have a thing for what we started calling "action nerds" -- which is what I would call my husband, too.  It may still be a month or so before we start the move to the east coast, but I'll keep in touch with crunchy, fun & geeky folks out there I hope to meet!

September/October is a great time to move out here. It's just starting to cool off from the 90% humidity we usually have during summer. Oh, and the tree are absolutely beautiful during the fall.

 

Daniel Jackson is quite adorable with those glasses of his. winky.gif  I always had a thing for Jack, too.

So, there are a lot of nerds in NOVA, for sure.  DH and I count, but I never wanted children's books in Latin until now...  DD is a Latin nerd...  Well, she's 13, but picturing Dr. Seuss in Latin right about now...  We own several of the Teaching Company courses...  DH in particular likes a couple of the profs.  They are centered here in Northern Virginia, as well.  I started midwifery school and I have less time for watching/listening to a lecture from TC :(  but I watch lots of birth videos.  :)

Hi, Bekka!--another NOVA nerd!  We've just about picked out a place in Fairfax to move in to.  So glad someone else loves Teaching Company.  I used to listen to far more of their CDs when I had a commute, but DH and I have discovered that the DVD versions have gotten even better.  If you've started midwifery school in the area, I may want to sound you out for you ideas on local hospitals/midwifes/birth centers.  I've had good input from some folks so far, but will really need to find the right fit (insurance and philosophy) when I get out there.

Howdy!

Let's see...DH is the DnD/comic book/video game/model building nerd, and I'm the documentary/researchy/grammar nerd.  We both love scifi (but not syfy).  :D  DD (who's 4.5) has had her own laptop since she was about 2, beats me at video games, tells me when it feels like food got stuck in her 'sophagus, and complains about her diaphragm when she has the hiccups.  She also likes spaceships and zombies.  And dragons.  :D  DS is too little to be a nerd yet, but give me some time... Oh...and is it really that weird to buy a microscope for yourself before you have kids?  I need to dig that thing up--I bet DD would love it.

Whole family of geeks here. Hubby is a professional Linux geek -- of the type that people ask him what he does for a living and then no one understands the answer. wink1.gif I'm just an amateur computer geek, but we are both into sci-fi / fantasy, comic books, computer games (him more than me -- I had to quit after getting way too obsessed with WoW), tabletop games, etc.

As someone with Social Anxiety Disorder, it amazes me how much of geek life is social. In some ways, that makes me feel sad, because I missed out on so much as a kid. But more than that it's awesome, because online fan communities, in game chats, game nights with friends, and even going up to the comic book store have all become safe little avenues for me to practice being social.

Michelle, wife to DH, and momma to DD16, DS15, DS12, DS10, DD9, DD7, DS5, and baby girl born Christmas Eve 2013!
