Dis Dad's Geek Thread

I figured since we've got more space we could throw a thread like this out there. A place where we could discuss our non-Disney obsessions.

Hi, I'm Turkey Lurkey, and I'm a fan of Monty Python, Star Wars, comic books, video games, Dr. Who, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and zombies.

I X-Box, and my gamertag is: turkeycreaux if anyone wants to kill some zombies sometime.

As I'm reading this, I'm working my way through Twist Mountain on Black/White to help out DS#2 get ready for the Pokemon Videogame Championships next month. Does that qualify me?

I don't think being a fan of Monty Python makes you a geek. I own the DVD and have enjoyed many drinking games to it. I'm a Mario Kart Wii gamer. My gamer tag is on FB is someone wants to play sometime.

No, but if you stayed up one weekend to tape all the episodes, including the two german ones, collected all the movies, records, collectible cards, stuffed animals, etc., and could recite entire episodes at the drop of a hat..."fan" doesn't quite decribe it.
