What Kind of Nerd Am I?
I do love comics. But I grew up in the Netherlands the first decade of my life and I never got into Marvel or D.C. My favorite comics come from the Netherlands and Belgium. Specially the ‘Storm’ series from Don Lawrence. Each book is a gorgeous work of art. Often with two page prints like above. And of course no shortage of action and sex. Superman, Batman, even Wonder Woman can’t get me as excited as Red Hair.
So no, not seen Batman Vs Superman yet and I’m not in a hurry to do so.
What sort of nerd am I? Well, I am a Trekkie. And then I fell in love. And the man I fell in love with, happened to be a Star Wars fan… Oh dear…
But, we found we could sidestep any hostilities (okay so there is some mild teasing still on both sides) by converting to Whovians. And lets be honest, who doesn’t love Peter Capaldi?
I read a lot of fantasy and science fiction as well as horror. And for some reason Tom Clancy even though I am not a fan of the spy or war genre.
During my teens I thought I would turn out to be a chemistry nerd, but then I ran away from that study screaming. It was that dull to me. Now I’m reading a lot of sociology and sexology studies and articles and seriously thinking about going back to school to get to call myself a ‘official’ student of human behavior.
I’m now living in Aruba. No zoo here, sadly, and the local wildlife has a bit too much attitude to be called ‘cute’.
