one is glad to be of service...and i can totally relate to the neverending reading list. awesome, but annoying at the same time.
Hey all nerdfighteria, New to the forums but been following the vlogbrothers for a little while now. Just sprained my ankle at work so had to have the rest of the day off which sucks, so thought I would say hello all.
I'm Chris, I'm studying animal behavior and welfare so know far to much about animal sex. I want to specialise in raptor conservation so recently completed a placement at the International Centre for Birds of Prey I read quite a bit and love fantasy and sci-fi but read pretty much anything, The fault in our stars being on pre-order. I'm also a big gamer (Cards, board, table top wargames, pen and paper, text based role play, computer and console games). I also paint and draw my fantasy creations.
Anyway, that's me in a very brief way. Any ideas for my surprise day off considering I am now finding it difficult to stand without pain?
I am Sue. I am an artist/ writer from Scotland.
I've been a watcher of Vlogbrothers for a few years now, and for some odd reason it is only now I have actually got round to checking this place out.
I know I'm a little late to the party, and I probably shouldn't admit I lurked before I joined. *cough*
What makes me a nerd?
My ability to feel the need to remember the most trivial things ever. Like, take Disney's The Lion King, for example. I could tell you so much stuff about the background of character's, changes Disney made and why, and basically, I know a lot of things a 27 year old really shouldn't bother about. But I do, and have always been that obsessive person about things I like. I won't stop, until I feel I know absolutely everything about a particular subject.
'Did you know...', has become a bit of a personal trademark, and I tell people facts all the time. I don't know why. I think it's because I assume that if I find something interesting, so will everyone else. Unfortunately this is never the case.
actually, admitting you lurked went a long way to showing your nerdfighterian character...i'd say. anyway, welcome Sue. i also find myself going, 'do they even care? ...why don't they care? this is fascinating stuff!'
I know, I get really annoyed that people don't get as excited about things I am interested in. I get so frustrated. -.- And thank you for the warm welcome :)
