GA... Geeks Anonymous

  1. Hi... my name is Barbara, and I am a geek...

    I've stayed up late every night so far this week, and painted little pewter miniatures in preperation of a Gaming Convention(and, I think my eyes are shot, but 5 or 6 more to go... The clip on magnifier does wonders!) on saturday... Ubercon (www.ubercon.com) in NJ, its a blast.. its $20 a head, and unlimited gaming... its great! We're packing a cooler, and planning to make a day of it...

    I've been playing AD&D (2nd ed. I dont like the 3rd one yet... then again, thats what I said when 2nd came out!) every other saturday for a while in a monsterous campaign... if you're there, and on the LAN servers... I'm the Geek of Doom... and, yes, I do stink at Ultima Tournament... but, I do play just for fun!

    I'm dating someone who scored higher on the geek test than I did... and I'm 72% Geek. He's cute... and just got a job with the city bridge and tunnels... YAY... woo hoo for city jobs!

    I collect Heroclix, in a seemingly futile effort to get a 'Hellboy' with the horns(not the unhorned one, but that one wouldnt hurt either... I dont have a single hellboy) unique figure... no hellboys, but several judge dredds...

    I spend my disposable income on gaming stuff, like polyhedral dice(and, yes, I need all of them... esp. the large ones, so I can read them without my glasses on.... after 12 hours of gaming, the glasses come off occasionally) , and Comic Books (at this time, wolverine, and fantastic four... I've given up on Silver Surfer for the time being, as the current storyline just isint catching my eye)

    I wear Black Tee Shirts with witty sayings... my favorite one says... 'if you're really a goth, where were you when we sacked rome?'(and, yes, that one gets questions as well as funny looks by some in the 'goth' mode...'sack rome? what do you mean'.... ha.)

    *sigh... I'm a geek...
    and, I love every minute of it...
