I was a huge geek before geek meant anything other than some 1950s dude with coke-bottle thick eyeglasses. By the time high school was underway I loved sci-fi, fantasy, medieval history, Shakespeare, every school subject but math & PE, music (I was in choirs & band), Monty Python, had joined those crazy theatre department kids, and was playing D&D (White Box edition) with my school's Tolkien Society - yes, we had a Tolkien Society @ my high school. So I've always been a gamer of varying kinds and a total nerd, but, eventually, with a cool sense of fashion.
And now I'm raising a really cool boy who is lucky to live in a world where all that geeky stuff is pretty cool. Plus, he has computers & robots to mess around with.
