What nerdy stuff do you do?

Ok, I have to admit feeling like a huge nerd sometimes. Here are my reasons:

1- I play video games more than I should
2- I know more about Star Wars and Lord of the Rings than I should
3- I own all the Weezer albums, and have seen them in concert more than anyone else I've ever seen
4- I minored in Japanese in college, I dont know if that's nerdy, but I sure met a lot of nerds in the classes
5- I like to read

On the other hand, I just bought Minor Threat - Complete Discography yesterday, I'm pretty sure you'd get your ace kicked for ever calling that nerdy.

i've been considered a nerd cos i find discussing marxism, russian literature, russian art, russian history a lot of fun.

i've been called a nerd for reading a lot, even though in comparisson with some people, like my mom, i don't read enough...

i don't try to dress "in style"

i know more about certain bands than i should, know the lyrics to more entire albums than i probably should

i read "a breif history of time" for fun when i was 14

i complain about not having enough work to keep me busy

i took mostly honours classes in high school

I read alot and read any kind of book. I read everyday at lunch and always keep a book in the car.

A friend of mine has kind of gotten me into the ghost hunt thing. I spent a night in an old prison sitting in a room waiting for something weird to happen. I have gotten a really weird feeling like I sense something there.

I like to visit historical places.

I do embroidery.

I happen to know a lot about the space program/space travel, etc. I find it interesting. I wanted to be an astronaut (not anymore).

I'm a science major. Stuff like DNA facinates me.

I like reading Shakespeare.

I always have a book with me.

I like history, esp. WWII history/historical places, etc.

I'm a pianist/ballerina, so I know a lot about classical music, etc.

I know the lyrics to most U2 songs (to my non-U2 friends, this is nerdy).

I'm a geek!

I also majored in International politics, so I watch a lot of news, and have more opinions than most about politics. That seems nerdy sometimes.

Poo. Opinions are overrated. Who needs opinions when we can all be a bunch of mindless drones? Epsilons live in bliss for they don't know any better.

Ok, here's something else pretty nerd-esque. I just realized I know all the lyrics to 867-5309 Jenny by Tommy Tutone.

I know WAY too many random facts.

I taught myself to read when I was three, and I read EVERYTHING. Even the backs of packaging.

I double majored in history and political science in college, took German for fun, and graduated a year early. I was also president or vice president of over half the organizations on campus. I was the biggest nerd EVER. I would seriously freak out if I made below a 98% on something.

I work in politics. Enough said. (I actually like the foreign affairs aspect of my job, though.)

I'm getting my MA in modern history just because I want to, not because I intend on doing anything with the degree.

I LOVE all animals. I watch Animal Planet constantly and have sooooo many stuffed animals that I still sleep with even though I'm 22.

I like doing crossword puzzles.

I love Harry Potter, the Lord of the Rings, and lots of other fantasy books.

I like doing crafts.

My favourite movie genres are kids' movies and foreign films.

I LOOK like a nerd.

....I honestly don't know what I do that's NOT nerdy.
