I'm a Nerd and I Know It

One of my favorite things about blogging and reading blogs is transparency. I love how I feel like I know the people behind my favorite blogs, and a big part of that is being real about all your little quirks and things that make you unique.

So today I just want to share a part of me that is pretty obvious if you know me personally, but I may not have gotten across to my readers. I'm a nerd. Wow, it feels really great to get that off my chest ;) Now let me share some of my favorite nerdy quirks I have.

1) Seth and I are Sci-Fi Junkies

If there is a Sci-Fi show out there chances are Seth and I have at least tried to watch it. We have watched every single episode of the Stargate series (Including Atlantic and Universe). We still complain about the fact that Firefly only lasted 1 season.

And we are pretty much obsessed with Battlestar Galactica, which leads me into my next point.

2) The Battlestar Obsession is No Joke

It all started with the board game! I am a firm believer that if you like board games you with love the Battlestar Galactica board game. It's a game filled with strategy, lying, accusing people, and for the nerds reading this: trying to get to Cobalt!  After Seth and I played the game for the first time we decided to watch the show. We opted for the newer version not the older one, but to each his own ;). We LOVED the show, it seriously kept you guessing the entire time! Now when are love for Battlestar moved to an obsession was when we decided to name our pets after the show. Out little Furbabies are named after characters from the show.

Our future rottweiler will be named Apollo, and whatever future puppy I decide to get will be named Helo.

3) Our Favorite Hobbies are Watching TV and Playing Board Games

Sure, the TV watching may make us come across a little lazy, but we love it! There is something about getting lost in a show that is so awesome to me. Most recently we caught up on the Game of Thrones series, and let me tell you it's crazy good. We also love playing board games in our free time, or when we are hanging out with friends. We recently played dead of winter, which is a game based on a zombie apocalypse. Here are some of our favorite games, you can click on the images if you are interested in purchasing :)

4) I've Played Dungeons and Dragons Before

I know some of you are probably shaking your heads in disbelief right now, but it's true. When played with the right people it can actually be really fun. You just get to create a character and go on adventures. Don;t judge, playing make believe keeps you young ;)

5) I Believe Diablo III is The Best Video Game Ever!

Now when it comes to video games, usually I am not a fan. Recently though Seth and I started playing Diablo III and it is so fun! It's a great thing that we can do together since Seth is obsessed with all things video games. So ladies if your men love video games this may be one worth looking into to play together.

So glad I could share this part of who I am with you all. I'm a proud nerd! I would love to here about all the nerdy, dorky, slightly weird stuff you all do too :)
