That being said, I am a total nerd. Full on, Dragon*Con-going, movie-obsessing, internet-dwelling nerd. If I have a spare moment, I'll be reading a book. I'm addicted to crossword puzzles. I am a casual video gamer. I crochet and cross stitch and I making gifts for friends.
Sports! Football (soccer): not as much as I used to, but Manchester United. Hockey: my main jam. Washington Capitals. Baseball: I'm in the first flush of a new romance. Giants and A's.
I am shy until I get to know you. I love giving gifts. I cry at movies and books (a lot!), but almost never otherwise. I am smart and capable. I need outgoing, extroverted people around me to bring me out of my shell.
Books: My favorite is probably Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I also love everything else written by those two authors. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams, the Harry Potter series, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Old Man's War by John Scalzi. I could keep going, but it would be boring. I'll read just about anything, but have a preference for sci-fi, dystopias, young adult literature, and quirky non-fiction.
Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Star Wars (the original trilogy), Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, The Social Network, The Princess Bride, Boondock Saints, Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang, 28 Days Later, Disney/Pixar movies, Sunshine, Velvet Goldmine. Again, I could keep going. I watch a LOT of movies!
Shows: Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse (I really like Joss Whedon), Supernatural, Stargate Atlantis, Community, 30 Rock, Leverage, Merlin, Sherlock (the 2010 BBC series), Brooklyn Nine Nine, Vikings
Music: I will listen to anything and everything. I will always love the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and AC/DC, but my iPod also contains classical music, classic rock, 80's hair metal, Broadway musicals, 90's boybands, movie soundtracks, etc.
