I like doing word search puzzles. That's kind of nerdier than crosswords.

I'll watch the Food Network and I dont even cook!

Do you go down the list in order or do you just find them and cross the word off the list?

depends on how easy the word search is...usually i go in order, unless it's rediculously easy and the words nearly jump out at you and then i don't go in order

I have about 10 videotapes full of old X-Files episodes.

I read "The Brothers Karamazov" by Dostoevski when I was in junior high, just because I wanted to. (It was my older sister's copy. She's an uber-intellectual. I'm a moron compared to her).

I got all excited recently when a new video store opened in town that actually has a decent foreign film section.

I'm a nerd and proud of it!

Me too...had to ask since someone thought it was weird that I felt the need to go in order.

Last week I came across my brother's old copies of Joyce that I didnt know we had so they are next on my list. I've been reading a book about the women in the South during the Civil War that I bought when I went to Gettysburg.

What is it about reading that people think is nerdy? I mean people give me weird looks at lunch. It's better than sitting there staring into space.

well, people tend to call me a nerd no matter what I do , but I guess some of the more nerdy things that I do are...

1. I took an astronomy course at a community college, not because I had to, I wasn't even in school at the time, just because I love astronomy and wanted to learn more about it (it was physics 1411 & 1412! how nerdy is taking a college physics class for fun!)

2. Camped out all night at Reunion Arena here in Dallas, on the sidewalk, in a sleeping bag, in November, to see U2

3. Re-scheduled Thanksgiving with my parents to see U2 in Austin after I had already seen them in Dallas

4. I go to Star Trek/Star Wars sci-fi conventions

5. I got a custom-made Star Trek uniform made a couple years ago that cost me $200 to wear to the Star Trek conventions

6. I'm a member of the Texas Astronomical Society of Dallas, where I also volunteer at the public star shows at the college Planetarium, and attend monthly club meetings

7. Wake up at 4am in the morning once a year to go to the Plano Hot Air Balloon show and watch the pre-dawn hot air balloon launch (i'm going to become a member of the Plano Hot Air Balloon Association soon as I get paid)

I guess I sound like I am a nerd I'm sure there's more I could add to the list if I think about it a while...

i can't beleive i mentioned gogol and forgot about this--in 11th grade i participated in a national russian essay contest (it was required for class to participate in it) and we had to write an essay on who our hero was. i had been reading about how gogol had most likely died thinking he was a failure and didn't think anyone would ever want to read his work. so i wrote my essay on him. i still wonder about what the judge who graded my essay thought about who i chose, but i got a silver medal so i guess they liked it...

That reminded me I was in the school spelling bee and was a runner-up. I was also in the National Honor Society in high school.

i was in a spelling bee...but i got kicked out in the second round when i misspelled "juicy"...i thought it was "juicey"

i can't spell though, i was only in the spelling bee cos i got 100%s on my spelling tests...they didn't take into account the fact that some people forget how to spell words as soon as they get them right on the tests

speaking of spelling, i lost points in 6th grade for writing "colour" instead of "color"...i had been reading "the invisible man" by h.g. wells (which i then did a book report on) and since wells was british, i had picked up on the colour with a u thing...
