Convince us of your nerdly heritage: I am a Japanese nerd. My father before me was a history nerd. His father before him was an engineering nerd. His father before him was a shoemaker, because my great-grandfather was a poor Italian immigrant with eleven kids to feed. The other women in my family have escaped this nerd gene, and are more interested in running the world in more direct ways...
If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for? A magic ring that could grant all my wishes, of course. Then, I would wish for my laptop to become considerably faster, with more RAM It's magic, so anything goes!
What nerdly activities do you partake in? MST films in class, anime conventions, cosplay, nerdly obsessing (fandoms I have obsessed over include Star Wars, The Simpsons, Harry Potter, Gensoumaden Saiyuki (Reload) (Gunlock))
A Star Trek convention is coming to your town. Do you go? I'm really more of a Star Wars person. Unless there's Next Generation stuff. Next Generation and Sesame Street were my CHILDHOOD, people!
Write an interesting solution to this mathematical problem : 4+4=? 2^3 ("One plus one equals- oh..." MST, the short A Date With Your Family (on the importance of family dinners))
You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. She/He offers you something. What is it, and how do you reply? First of all, you never, EVER talk to strangers, Johnny. But since I have my magic ring of wishes and doooom, I approach. It turns out that the stranger has a can of tuna she'd like me to open. Using my wishing ring, I wish for a can opener, then spend the next 30 minutes trying to open it. Suddenly, I remember my magic ring of wishes and doooom, and I just wish for the knowledge and skill to open the can.
At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why? Tifa, because I have the boobs and the fists to do so.
Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest: I'll need a lamp, some floss, a couple of Encyclopedia Britannicas and...a Death Star. And don't forget your towel, we'll be gone about a week. No, make that two Death Stars. Now, using the floss and the Britannicas, we'll take out...wait, that's my plan for world destruction. Um, lemme get back to you on that.

Please, let us endure your nerdly visage. Well first of all, my icon there. The one with the taped glasses. Yeah, there's a story behind that...
These are all from my class trip to Japan last summer. Notice how my pockets are heavy with dictionaries. DICTIONARIES! [has slight dictionary fetish]
oh-em-gee oh-em-gee A SHINKANSEN!!1 And that's South Dakota State U. on the shirt, not San Diego State like everyone thinks. My aunt is attending South Dakota State, though I myself am off to Earlham next year...
I's gots me a SWORD. Of DOOM. In from of Sasaki Kojirou's statue! ...of, um, doom, I guess.
In front of Himeji gate, in my tie-dye gay pride shirt, which RAN and stained my bra, despite the fact that the many who sold it to me said it wouldn't.
Me at Miyajima. My class and I went during tsuyu, or the rainy season, so we were pretty much damp the whole time. WARM rain. It was like a not-cold Oregon. The shirt reads "Rucking Renegades," my rugby team.
And then, of course, there are the bases and icons I made of myself and some friends from the Japan trip.
[ Your thoughts ]
Please provide us with a few of your own thoughts. You want my thoughts? You can't handle my thoughts! No thought-handler you! Bah! I deride your thought-handling ability! [/SSB reference]
Hm...I like rugby. And speech and debate. And Japanese. And getting caught in the rain (but that's most days in Oregon, anyways).
I reach levels of fangirlism previously unseen. I fangirl my cat. I fangirl my glasses. My first cosplay experience was the fourth grade, when I came to class everyday with a Han Solo vest and a glove on one hand. When one kid asked me if I was a Michael Jackson fan, I told him I didn't watch basketball and told him I was Hannah Solo, Han Solo's younger Jedi sister who accidently cut her hand off with her own lightsaber. Next year, my ADHD medication was upped.
When Mark McGuire did that home run...thingy...or whatever it was, I thought he was a gardening show host at first. Doesn't Mark McGuire sound like the name a gardening show host would have?
