Geekdom - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

Your Blogging Type is Confident and Insightful
You've got a ton of brain power, and you leverage it into brilliant blog.
Both creative and logical, you come up with amazing ideas and insights.
A total perfectionist, you find yourself revising and rewriting posts a lot of the time.
You blog for yourself - and you don't care how popular (or unpopular) your blog is!

I was tagged by crescent_gaia for this meme.
It's kinda neat.
    Justify your geekiness!
    List five (5) reasons why you are a geek (dork, nerd, etc). They had better be good and well justified.  Then pick five people and out them.
  1. I work for a software company in which we debate the erlevence of Star Wars and George Lucas.
  2. I celebrate Wintereenmas, and if you don't know what this is you better go figure it out.
  3. I'm the king of epic Exalted plot. Just ask fynixsoul, lady_fox,dragonflyknight,kaylithin, and darkskywatcher.
  4. I think the above quotes indicate that I post way too much. If not a "typical" geek, I'm certainly an LJ Fiend which may be a subdivision within general geekdom.
  5. I just purchased the entire Monty Python's Flying Circus which means that I have only two more movies to buy before I have all of their tv/movie media. MMmmm... Mangeblanc.... I &hearts tennis-playing aliens.
  6. One more for good measure: Toast Demon

Go here and tell me about how you define "geek" and "geekiness."
I've changed my mind. I'll tag people my college friends don't know.

My geekdom has lessened significantly sice graduating, obviously.  I haven't gamed much. I've not had many really geeky game conversations, save the ones at NEGLECt, sadly I wasn't really playing at that con. I've not done anything I consider really geeky in quite some time. I've been transitioning into an artist instead among other completely new roles in my life. I think it's a symptom of growing up. I can't see myself being like I was in college, not that I was especially gekk-tastic.
Oh, point seven: I'm going to Barnes and Nobles' Harry Potter kick-off party tonight. This has to weigh, certainly. Anyone want to go with tonight to protect me from scary fans?

Now, I'm not tagging anyone because I think they've all been tagged. Plus, I don't think the majority of people on my list are really geeks.

What is this transitoning thing? Why have I lost my geekish leanings? Clearly I need to be spending more time with gamers and in comic book stores.

awww...does this mean I'm not a geek? OK, I'm not a very technically-oriented geek, maybe more of a cultural geek.
