The Internet is an amazing tool!

I mostly cosplay or dress up as comic or video game characters.

I can't afford to do anything extravagantly geeky.

But I watch video game tournaments live on the internet.  And I yell at the screen and have a team and everything. Its like real sports for me. I actually like it better then real sports.  I also have a thing for watching conventions live. On G4 I always watch comic con and E3. I always wanted to go to one. Thats not really a hobby though.

I just like dressing up for the heck of it. I go to some conventions as well, just to hang out with like minded people, though I still very much dislike the crowds, like minded or not, lol.

Reading Shakespeare and collecting coins. Oh, and reading veterinary literature and hanging out at the library. Wow, I sound pretty darn geeky.

OK...those of you do art...whether its poetry....songs....whatever...that stuff isnt geeky. Its artsy. Big difference.

I used to be a huge D&D freak. THATs geeky.

Currently I collect Hot Wheels cars. Still geeky.
