Many people, most really, when they first meet me are surprised to learn about the raging nerd I am.
Sci-fi anything and I love it *B5, BSG, Doctor Who, Firefly, Star Trek, Star Wars, etc. etc.*
Post-apocalyptic, and you've got me transfixed.
RPG table top games, and I'm running two Firefly seasons.
Board games, and I'm parked at a table.
There is little end to my geekdom.
Then someone looks at me and says, "Wow Jo, you're such a nerd."
And I think, "You say that like it's a bad thing."
I believe in heroes. I believe in strength and the will to succeed against dire odds. I believe we can all be more than we are. I believe that humanity has a hope and will get better. I believe that even in the worst situations our better parts will survive. I believe that there is magic in the universe. I believe that we will travel the stars. I believe. I hope. That's sci-fi and that's fantasy.
So ya, I'm a nerd.
