I get called geek all the time at work but outside of it I would say that I am not. I spend most of my free time doing a hat full of sports including Triathlons, Surfing and squash. I do enjoy playing some computer games but that is on the wane now summer is on its way and going outside is a lot more appealing.
IT is a job not a passion for me at the moment. Roll on the holidays.
read a lot of fantasy.
watch scifi. confessed whedonite. read certain comics.
understand where Sheldon is coming from in the big bang theory. and use my nephews as cover to go see superhero films.
I think that covers it
Age of the Geek, baby!! (I miss that show!!) SHINY!!
I have Geeky tendencies, like being into console/pc games and get excited by new Tech. But i'm not a "Massive" geek, sport is my real passion, I'm really into Golf and Football. I don't tend to touch my PC at home unless its to browse the internet or play a game.
Well there's lots of examples I could give to demonstrate geek credentials - the bookshelves of SF/fantasy novels, the WH/40k figures also on said bookshelves, the mancave of old gaming machines...
But I think I can stake my claim with LARP.
I have geek bubbling under... But i'm not a typical geek, i'm geeky about things I like.
Military and industrial archaeology and history in general - I volunteer at an open air museum of ancient life.
I don't play games - other than tapped out, although I keep abreast of the tech involved with consoles.
I despise RPG board games.
football, beer, womaniser
standard sat night
Think I need to be more of a geek and learn more stuff - although may have to wait until I can get a test machine at home so I can muck about with Server OSes, Exchange etc etc
Mainly Watch Movies / Listen to Music and Spending time with the family
Google defines Geek
an unfashionable or socially inept person.
engage in or discuss computer-related tasks obsessively or with great attention to technical detail.
I don't mind being associated with being a verb, but not the noun!
I am so not a "stereotypical" geek either, although my friends probably think I am!
