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.

Okay, there is art. But then there's art you make sitting at your computer.

Sometimes I think of this video when I am doing this hobby, and laugh to myself:



I love to make mashups! Click here to hear!
I also love taking pictures! Click here to see!
I love to play drums, too! Whatever you do, don't click here!

The first step is getting away from your denial of being a geek.  Its ok.  You are among friends.  You can let it out. :)

Maps and geography are interests of mine, had a passion for collecting baseball cards (most of them from the 1980s and 90s), have collected bottle caps and foreign coins, and meteorology or seismology are big faves to put me in a class of "semi-geeks" whom go by other names like "nerd, dweeb" or "dork". :geek:

My geekiest hobby? Hmmmm...I love to read cookbooks. I will sit down and read one from front to back just like it is a novel. I especially like the ones put together by communities, mostly churches, that have little stories about where the recipes came from and their memories of them.

I make and wear costuming, mostly of historical context, occasionally of other sorts. I collect wild feathers while out on nature walks. I recycle a lot of household stuff that usually ends up in the garbage, and use it to make stuff. I make houses and buildings for wee folk. I tinker with cookbook writing. I make Christmas gifts every year.
I'm an animal watcher- every time I see a new critter in the area, I get all excited and figure out what it is so I can put it on my animal sighting list.

Word searches, crossword puzzles, piano, gardening, baking and cake decorating.
I sound like an old lady more than a geek.

I play video games too, but really only Super Mario and Donkey Kong. :P

You should check out a documentary "The King Of Kong". It's got a really cool story to it, and is absolutely hilarious at times. It also screams geek through a  lot of it, but in an endearing way. :P

Hmm, well I have a room where half the walls are covered in shelves of Native American items, some of them passed down via family and some of them bought, like pottery and weavings and blankets and kachina dolls and all that. I collect swords/knives too, on a different wall I've got an old Japanese sword hanging in a wood and glass case, and then a machete and a couple sets of daggers and some other things. So, those are probably 2 of the nerdiest things I collect, and I Love making jewelry and learning about different cultures as hobbies.
