Hello, I'm new!
I found my way here via NaNoWriMo last November, but I'd actually watched Maureen Johnson's Dare to Suck video long before that. I just didn't know what it was part of.
I'm a writer. I've written five novels, and I'm currently rewriting no. 4 from scratch in the hope that it will be good enough to be published one day.I'm doing Camp NaNoWriMo as a rebel.
I'm a nerd because...
...I have a degree in linguistics and cultural anthropology but only use that knowledge to make conlangs and fantasy cultures.
...I can't leave the house without a notebook and a pen.
...I prefer book shopping to shoe shopping.
...I baked cauldron cakes and decorated my kitchen for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Even though I only had one friend come over.
...I've written poetry in Sindarin and made my own bow and arrows (once upon a time).
...I own at least thirty-five dictionaries.
Glad to be here! :-)
As you may have presumed from reading this, I am new here!
One of my best friends in the world has been a nerdfighter for quite a while now, although I am not sure whether or not she is a part of these forums. I shall have to check on that matter soon. Anyway, we were discussing our various nerd topics over coffee the other day, such as explosions, zombies, and whether llamas or alpacas are better. (Obviously, alpacas won.) She then preceded to point me to this fine website, so here I am now. I was familiar with Hank beforehand, having seen him perform at W00tstock 2.0 in Seattle, and then running into him at PAX last September.
I am a nerd because I have an affinity for retro gaming, especially the NES, and I have been deemed a book nerd due to my expansive library. Most recently, I was gifted with an extremely awesome cloak to wear at the midnight premiere of Deathly Hallows Pt.2, in a mere 11/12 days.
Happy to be here!
Hi there I'm Amy and Im from England.

I am an animation student and this takes up so much of my life. Its rather rewarding though.
Well what makes me a nerd:
Obsessive about Dr Who and Harry Potter,
Always have my nose in a book,
Video games rule my existence,
Techonology is a passion.
Im not really sure what else to say so ill leave it here:) If you want to get to know me then just say.

Hello introductory thread!
Not a new nerdfighter...just a new nerdfighter.com-er.
So...I'll be a college freshman at Western Washington University this fall, planning to double major in Environmental Science (emphasis in Marine Ecology) and Photography.
I like reading and being eco-smart/friendly and taking pictures and drinking tea and being mistaken for someone older than I am despite being determined to deny that I will be any older than seventeen for the rest of my life.
I am determined to marry someone who plays a brass instrument, has freckles, wears glasses, and can swing dance.
Ghosts don't exist, but aliens do, and so do the monsters under my bed.
My mother wishes I were less straight-edge. :D
are nerds really ever straight-edge? or are we just too nerdy to enjoy some things?
...anyway, welcome to the ning region of nerdfighteria Kady.
I question that first bit. Are we ever straight edge you ask? Uhm...:P
Thank you, Danno!
I like not liking not-straight-edgey things.
ok, lets see if i can articulate my point better tonight... i wasn't coming down on you Kady or anyone for their taste...but that's the thing, my understanding of straight-edge is that it requires a level of intentionality...that one who would love to 'get thrashed' commits not to. while, you yourself said you don't like such things...so are you really choosing to avoid them?
It's a little of both, maybe. I choose to avoid them because I don't like them...but my understanding of straight-edge was always one who isn't into such things, not one who intentionally avoids them despite the want.
