The Geeky Meme

… for Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme

The Geeky Meme

Time for another round of Berry’s questions. This time inspired by the Geeks’n’Nerds Fair.

  1. What do you consider yourself to be? Geek? Nerd? Dork? None of the above? All of the above? – I don’t think I’m smart enough to qualify as a nerd, so that one’s out. I enjoy video games, comic books (of the Franco-Belgian type) and being on the internet, so that would make me a geek. But I’m also socially awkward like a dork. So I guess that makes me… a deek… a gork? Hmm…
  2. What was the first computer you ever owned? – The first computer I ever touched was probably my dad’s. That was a commodore 64 or something similar. The first computer that was actually mine used Windows 95, so I must have been 14-15 years old. I know it was faster then my parent’s 486, but I’ve forgotten what it was exactly.
  3. When and how did you first get on the internet? – Probably when I first got one of those free dial-up internet trial discs. I mainly remember that lovely modem sound and that you needed lots and lots of patience.
  4. Which geek fandom do you subscribe to? – To none really. It’s not that I don’t like Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, etc. I do actually. But I’m not obsessed enough about it to be truly part of any fandom.
  5. Star Trek or Star Wars? – Star Trek, because that’s what I remember watching while growing up. I only saw the old Star Wars movies when I was about 20 years old, so it doesn’t feel quite as nostalgic.
  6. How Geeky Are You? – I took the test and got 39%. My husband also took the test and got 93%. What can I say? Apparently we complement each other.

Spotlight

… a Look of the Day.

Spotlight

I finally managed to visit Shoetopia. Shoooes as far as the eye can see…

Well, as far as my draw distance anyway.

The very first thing I bought, were Slink’s new high mesh feet. Made especially for shoes with a dangerously high heel. I absolutely love the Slink add-on shoe system, so getting these was a no-brainer.

And, of course, I had to get some matching footwear for them. The shoes I ended up buying, are pretty similar to a pair I own in RL. I lovingly refer to those as my “kamikaze shoes”. Because that’s what wearing them is usually like.

Hopefully the SL ones will not be quite as hazardous.

Kuzco

… Week 7 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Kuzco

This time my look is inspired by Kuzco. And I really disliked his outfit.

Shades of Beige

… a Look of the Day.

Shades of Beige

Sometimes a look comes together without any problems at all. You basically just get your pixeldoll dressed and suddenly you look awesome. But sometimes…

This was one of those looks that just wouldn’t work. I’ve been wearing this outfit for a week now, in different variations. And basically, this is the best I could come up with. You can clearly see I was desperate, because it has a handbag in it. If I start digging in my bags folder, this are going badly, just saying.

  • Skin – Glam Affair (aida.ewing)
  • Eyelashes – Maxi Gossamer (maxi.gossamer)

Merida

… Week 6 of the SL DisneyBound Challenge.

Merida

I’m now so far behind with this challenge, that it has actually already come to an end, while I’m only at week 6. Quite an achievement really…

Anyway, here is my take on Merida. I made this picture about two months ago. So it was a good thing I wrote down the credits at the time, or I would have had no clue what-so-ever.

  • Skin – Pink Fuel (mochi.milena)
  • Eyelashes – Maxi Gossamer (maxi.gossamer)
