[ In-depth ]
Convince us of your nerdly heritage:
You asked for it..
Up til about 5th grade i was the smart kid and did a lot of reading (i read every book on world war 2 in our school library by the time i graduated to middle school aka junior high) i collected pogs, and in fourth grade i had a teacher who made us write a speech every week, whenever we could write on a topic of our own choosing i wrote 'dodo wars' i think the main character was dodowalker.. i'm not sure how close to the plot line of star wars it was, but pretty close i'm sure.

Around 5th grade i receded into my introvertness, i collected military and starwars micromachines, myself and a friend would have huge battles with our starwars micro machines which evolved to include numerous other things.. like chairs as space stations, and virtually anything that could be construde as a space ship.
Then i picked up computers.. it really started with my dad's macintosh, with some really random games. most that i can't remember, and Marathon 2 (i loved that game.. still do) it really got started in.. 6th or 7th grade i think when i got my first PC and Diablo.. i never looked back :)
In the 7th grade, i also picked up pokemon cards, starwars cards, and magic. I never got into the starwars game, it was pretty complicated for me at the time, and no one else had them. Same with magic (i eventually did end up playing for a while in my junior year). Pokemon however was amazing, we played everyday for quite sometime.
the summer before 8th grade i picked up Dungeons and Dragons.. man.. amazing. (my first character ended up being the level 32 wizard demi-god of air, had a flying castle, and quite a large army.. power game much?)
And despite a couple musicals i had done before.. My real interest in theatre began then as well with much ado about nothing. Dropped pokemon cards by the end of 8th grade.
Started a Muggle Qudditch League at our school with a friend.. yeah.. you heard me. ^_^

9th grade.. starting highschool, i took two computer programming classes, visual basic and C++.. however my interest in programming died soon after. TI 83 plus games became a big thing to do during school hours. Downloading lots and lots of Anime..
10th grade i picked up technical theatre as well. unfortunately the computer that had the anime on it.. my first or second.. died or needed to be reformatted so i lost it all.. never fully recovered from that.. stopped watching so much anime at that point.
Started taking art classes.
11th grade i went to one unofficial demi-larp thing. started doing photography.
12th grade i picked up 7th Sea trading cards as well. And started acting in Ren Faires.

and so that pretty much leaves me where i am today.. haven't really gained or lost anything since then..

A greater ring of wish.

<b>What nerdly activities do you partake in?</b>
Dungeons and Dragons
Video/Computer games
Anime watching
And i was recently informed that theatre is nerdy...yes? well.. i do lots of theatre like <i>lots</i> of theatre.. technical and onstage.. technical is usually stage/running crew though i want to learn lighting and sound at some point
I also act in ren-faires with a local company.. The King Arthur Faire, The Robin Hood Faire, and The Pirate Faire
I'm also working on the Friendship of Salem, the only tall ship in the area besides the constitution that i know of.. that's earned me the title of pirate by a good many people..
Haven't played magic or 7th sea in a long while, but i should..
Photography/Sketching. Not a whole lot of sculpture or painting. Some carving.

<b>A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go?</b>
Hell yeah. i would go, myself, i'm not a big fan of star trek, though i might know a little more about it than your average joe. It would be interesting and fun, so why not? :)

<b>Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=?</b>
A+A= B or D+D= H

<b>You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. He offers you something,What is it, and how do you reply?</b>
"Cake or death?" "...Could I have both?"

<b>At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why?</b>
Hmm for like RPGs probably a character of mine, which would -most likely- be an elven ranger. why? because they bloody well rock my socks! that and it's a gaming convention
Anything else would probably be my usual not quite goth.. eclectic... not quite hippie look.

<b>Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest:</b>
What plan for world conquest? <_< >_> MUAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH *cough cough* @_@ *ahem* er.. sorry.
