Well. Here it is. The straight up truth. I am a geek girl. I love Farscape, Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and of course I always can use some Doctor Who(especially David Tennant style!). Give me the Marvel super heroes and my week is complete. Each Hobbit movie was already listed on my calendar a year before the first one came out. I love Veronica Mars and the deeply intelligent writing for West Wing! Yes Geek Girls are smart AND sassy. It doesn’t matter that I have a heap of children and even a teenager. I’m still a Geek Girl! Of course this means I have geek children too!
Then of course there is books to geek out about! Hunger Games, Tolkien, Patricia Briggs(can’t get enough of Mercy!), The Iron Fey… The list goes on and on. We talk about them with excitement and passion. Geeks love their movies, their books and their events. In this day of Memes we can show exactly which characters hold us captive. Being a geek is a positive. Having things you love gives you things to talk about. We have cable channels catered directly to us like the Sci-Fi channel. We have events spanning the world, covering nearly every weekend of the year. I live all year for FaerieWorlds. Now FaerieCon West will be my February destination! To dress up and escape, be someone else… Ah. The joys of being a Geek Girl.
Who are your favorite characters? What is your favorite world? What turns you into a geek?
