My name is Steve. I'm very much a geek. I run a support department. I live with my smizmar who is currently lady-balls deep in designing costumes. Pretty much my life is spent gaming, going to conventions and concerts, absorbing way too much television, occasionally going out and drinking, and otherwise keeping myself busy with music and other distracting interests.
She is Kelsey. She makes things with leather, enjoys cosplay, board games, is not too shabby in the coding department, and generally enjoys most aspects of geek life. She will also likely be happy to play Borderlands with you.
She is good at the crafting end of things. Also not half bad at singing when it comes to Karaoke.
For her it's her fun clothing, hair color, likely her figure.
We are a collective George RR Martin slut, so Game of Thrones the show and Song of Ice and Fire the book series are amazing to me. As far as reading goes, I also like the works of Heinlein, Eddings, Vonegut, Hobb, Brooks, a little Stephen King now and again. Nothing that surprising. About to start into Robert Jordan. She's a big fan of Terry Pratchet, R.A. Salvatore, other authors in my list, etc.
Television is a big list, but basically figure that if it is on HBO, Showtime or FX I'll like it. If it is a comic book cartoon series I'll like it. If it is a Comedy Central show we'll probably like it. Some highlights of that are the Wire, Archer, the Shield, Battlestar Galatica. Other shows outside of that are Sherlock, Luther, Merlin, Sherlock, Orange is the New Black, Robin Hood, Dr. Who, Modern Family, Last Week Tonight, Undateable, Comic Book TV, Star Trek (all of it). You get the idea.
Films is too big to list. Top tier for me are Big Lebowski, Shawshank Redemption, 21 Jumpstreet, Star Trek, Children of Men, pretty much every comic book film worth watching, Django Unchained, and the list goes on forever.
Song of Ice and Fire Books
Webcomics (the dirty kind)
Leather (and the tools to work them)
For her, likely what she's going to make next costume wise; or Pitch Perfect.
She's not so open with those sorts of things. You'll have to get to know us.
