  • Color? Green! I painted my room green last summer. And my desk, and one of my three bookshelves.

  • Video game? I love Diablo 2, as I have for the past four years, which I guess is kind of a long time..

  • Instrument? I used to play electric bass, but my guitar broke a while back, and I haven't gotten around to fixing it.

  • Pet? I have a dog, named Zoe, after Zoe from Sesame Street (I was six when we got her..) and I have a dwarf hamster named Logan.
  • Song? That'll be the Day --The Crickets, though it was originally played by Buddy Holly with his band, The Three Tunes, but Decca didn't like it, so.. no go on that.

    [ In-depth ]

  • Convince us of your nerdly heritage: Well.. my dad owns a software company, so I've had computer acces virtually my entire life. I mean, the first time I used the internet I was 4, and it was on this new version of the French Minitel in San Francisco with the siblings. But yeah, he founded DBA Software, which I think is actually called Kalinda now. Or will be soon. And as for my mom.. she graduated high school early, but otherwise I dunno.

  • If I could grant you one wish, what would you wish for? To do well on the Bio SAT2 tomorrow morning.. I lost my Princeton Review book, so I've been studying with an outdated one that my brother used, only I haven't really been studying so much as playing Free Cell on my computer.

  • What nerdly activities do you partake in? I guess I read a lot, and waste hours on end on my computer, though most people do these days, and I speak Elvish moderately well, and.. does golfing count? It's pretty much me and a bunch of middle aged men at the driving range.. I don't know what else.

  • A Star trek convention is coming to your town do you go? YES. Just because I really want to meet someone who speaks Klingon fluently. I just think it'd be fun, even though the only Star Trek I ever watched on a regular basis was Voyager.

  • Write an interesting solution to this mathmatical problem : 4+4=? 9, for extremely large values of 4. Yeah, I completely stole that from thinkgeek, but I couldn't think of anything else.

  • You see a cloaked stranger standing in the shadows of an alley. He offers you something,What is it, and how do you reply? He offers me the Hand of Midas for my world domination, outlined below. I reply by taking it in exchange for all my troll dolls.

  • At a gaming convention, what would you dress up as and why? Hmm.. I don't know. I never really got into cosplay. Wanted to, but never really had the guts, even though everyone else there is anyway. But yeah, I really have no idea.

  • Write a short, creative story about your plot for world conquest: Well first I'd need the Hand of Midas. Then I'd have all the gold I needed to buy out all the major media outlets. Once I controlled all the media, I'd be able to control what everyone believed. Then they'd be my little cronies, and the whalemeat factory in Korea won't continue, and people will care more about the environment, and the Green Party will be the only party!!

  • Please, let us endure your nerdly visage.
    That's me on the right.

    Me with my Einstein action figure. I have Sigmund Freud too.

    [ Your thoughts ]
  • Please provide us with a few of your own thoughts.
    I really don't know what to say.. I'm a control freak and a perfectionist and.. yeah. I'm really stressed out right now because it's getting to be the end of the year, and I'm an anxious person, so I'm stressed out about all my final projects, because I'm the person who always ends up doing all the work, and it kind of sucks. I mean, I guess I don't mind it when it's just one project at a time, but when there's a whole plethora of them, it's really overwhelming. Otherwise, I think that... this summer will be fun, because i'm taking graphic design and comic book illustration at Academy of Art University, and babysitting twice a week so I'll actually have money to spend.
