I'd of never thunk it! But then I looked at the facts.
1. I love the Syfy Channel.
I never was a Trekkie but when they started get smarter, scarier (Alien), and CGI entered the picture I caved BIG. Although Sharknado doesn't do it for me there seems to be a gazillion shows that do. To be fair I probably come by this naturally. My father could not get my mother to go to "scary movies" when I was a kid and I was tapped to be his "plus one". I got popcorn, pop, and nightmares! LOL - We weren't as smart about kids imaginations as we are now. I even worked at a theatre as a teenager.
2. Super Hero's are the BOMB!
Really Sharon? Really? - Yup, love them. Tortured souls who seek to right the injustices of the world. And better yet if they are the brooding and smoldering kind - complicated. Okay, shoot me - I'm married, too old for that, but not dead! Even the non-hero's like Captain Flint and Captain Vane in "Black Sails". Have you seen that series yet? A-hoy matey.
3. I'd be a Zombie in a Zombie walk if there were one close to me.
I don't know where I'd get the paint or who does that for them but it looks like a hilarious way to spend an afternoon. I already have a lock on the walking weird part (arthritis and stuff is a big aid to walking like a zombie, who knew). Again, I'm not dead but it would be fun to play "undead again" for a couple of hours. Hello, Walking Dead? Need a zombie? I'd do it for paint job.
4. I read Science-Fiction.
Yup, do that too! It's not the only thing I read but after seeing Black Sails I reread the original Treasure Island too. Outer Space - Historical make believe - I've always loved an interesting story that takes me out of "normal" for a while. Ah, I even loved Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instrument series. I love a good vampire, werewolf, and whatever else have you that's a well woven story. And, yes, George Martin and his Game of Thrones series is already under my belt too. Dragons - - - - oh hell yes!
I doubt this purging of information begins to cover my geekiness completely. And, I'd love to see Comic-Con. Would I fit in? Probably like a sore thumb but it wouldn't stop me from enjoying the hell out of it. Oh, and I taped the whole season of Supernatural - I'm saving it for a binge watching session - I adore those boys.
Uh, so I'm flying that freak flag today - GEEK and proud of it! What's your thing, aside from being an artist? Are you feeling just a little geek too?
Go Forth and Prosper!
and have a great weekend.
Oh crap, maybe I did learn quite a bit of Star Trek stuff - I do a good Vulcan sign too!
