I would call myself a nerd, though I'm probably closer to "lady nerd lite" -- I love Harry Potter/YA, geeky TV (Doctor Who/Torchwood/BSG, etc.) and can enthuse at length on these topics (I am well-versed in fandom). But I've never seen Star Trek, don't read comic books or play video games (much), haven't engaged in cosplay or attended Comic Con (though I've been to Dragon*Con), so I'm hardly typical. If you're nerdy, that's totally up my street -- if you're nerdy and have robust social skills? Even better! BUT, I wasn't cool in high school, so that counts, right? :)
These self-summary things are so hard, but suffice to say -- I'm a happy, creative person with a lot of interests, who is hoping to find someone with whom to share/spend time with. I watch far too much TV (but, in a good way... right?), and when I'm not watching TV, I tear through books or enjoy the city with friends (hiking, running, beach days, Disneyland, etc). I'm a bit of a homebody, so the bar/club scene has never really been for me. I'm active and go out and enjoy things, but my ideal evening is a night in with good company, watching a movie, TV, playing a video or board game or just chatting.
When I'm not watching TV/writing/reading, I go to Slimmons three times a week, which means I do jazz aerobics with THE Richard Simmons, and, yes, it's very odd. I have stories...
Enthusing at length about whatever I am into at the moment.
Recalling obscure details/actor/creative info about pop culture/British film & tv.
Liking whatever song that gets zero points at Eurovison.
Not cooking, even though I really like cooking.
TV -- Happy Endings, Fringe, The Killing, The Vampire Diaries, Archer, Community, Parks and Recreation, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sherlock, Hart of Dixie, Lost, Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, Bones, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Ashes to Ashes, Merlin, Alias, Black Books, Spaced, Veronica Mars, Buffy (really, just a TON of TV. If it's on Hulu Plus I will probably watch it)
Film -- Amadeus, Magnolia, Inception, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, National Treasure (lol), Elizabeth, Bollywood (Jhoom Barabar Jhoom!), Eurotrip, Music & Lyrics, Love Me If You Dare, Baby Boom, Head On/Napola/Sommersturm (yay German cinema), Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Sense & Sensibility, I Robot, etc. etc... I like a wide variety :)
Music -- European synthpop is my bread and butter. Little Boots, Marina and the Diamonds, Royksopp, Robyn, Eurovision, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Wynter Gordon, Alphabeat, Sia, Lily Allen, Girls Aloud, Fiona Apple, Mozart, Beethoven, Britten, Bootie mash-ups + lots of musicals, film scores & general popular music.
Food -- Indian, Thai (<3), Japanese/Sushi (no raw fish though, so does that count?), traditional British, German, The Counter, COFFEE, Trader Joes is my lifesaver. I'm a pseudo-vegetarian/respectful carnivore -- I don't eat meat that often (usually out, on weekends), and enjoy a lot of vegetarian fare. Dairy, however, is essential, so you will never see me attempt to be vegan (though I've had faboo vegan brownies).
High speed Internet
health & fitness
international spy craft
Internet Fail (see: Gawker, Jezebel comments)
sociology & abnormal psychology
terrible, terrible things that you see on reality TV (Bachelorette, Toddlers & Tiaras, etc.)
I am more fun on Saturdays, I promise.
You're a bit nerdy. You blog. You can spell/use proper grammar. You listen any of the music I listed. Eh, I'm flexible. There's a lot here. If you connected with any of it, please message!
