I find it is with some amusement that people seem to take pride in being a geek.
Personally I don't like to classify myself. Now I have read comics for many, many years, owned a comic book store, have enjoyed video games (very seldom anymore) and watch Star Trek, Star Trek the Next Generation, Farscape and recently a convert to Stargate, but I refuse to classify myself as a geek.
I have always managed to have a lot of fun with the opposite sex, never lived in my parents' basement, play some sports and in a poker game twice a month. I'm not overweight and I have seen the light of day and the inside of many nightclubs.
Still I'm writing a blog and participate in a comic book "radio" show. So Geek or No Geek.
My wife says I'm a comic geek, but after going a convention (for the first time in over a decade) I'm not even sure I qualify as a comic geek.
I prefer no labels and hope people judge me on what I present to them and bring to the party so to speak. I just don't get why some are proud to be a geek. Maybe they are cool geeks!
