Anyway, I'm just kind of wondering what sorts of geeky hobbies the rest of you might find yourselves involved in during the wee hours apart from art and NG?
I do something many people don't- I actually read books. It's geeky, in a sense, considering that I do that more often than I text, like a normal teenager would be doing.
Besides that, I used to play World of Warcraft, and only stopped because I was broke and couldn't pay the monthly fee. I've played on/off since it first came out- I was 11 when I started. I've been intending to go back when I actually finish Mario Galaxy 2 with every star. Say what you will, I am NOT one of those people who let it siphon their lives. I have excellent self control, and I played purely for fun.
My character's name was Kihael, if anyone gives a shit. I was the only "Kihael" in the entire 11 million player database, so armory search would be easy.
I've also read lots of manga. I don't watch much anime, though, and I don't think I have enough of a literature behind me to really be an "otaku", but I know a good amount and I think I have good taste.
I don't think I really have any geeky hobbies, really, just some geeky tendencies.
