Thirteen things that qualify me as a nerd

Feel free to donate generously to the "Janna needs a life" fund.

1)
I love listening to the BBC news
2) I used to write fan fiction for Star Trek
3) I'm fascinated by magazines like Scientific American and Discover
4) I know the difference between a Cardassian and a Romulan
5) I love the idea of snuggling up with a cup of tea and a book by Stephen Hawking
6) My favorite radio station is NPR
7) I enjoy discussing the pros and cons of the different Star Trek series.
8) I love doing harmonic analysis of musical compositions
9) I can tell the difference between the sound of an English horn and a soprano sax, and I really CARE about it.
10) I love reading through the dictionary, just to find new words. I also make sure I understand all the definitions of words I'm already familiar with.
11) I know that Quark's brother is Rom, his nephew is Nog, his sister-in-law is Leeta, his mother was called "Moogie", and his favorite currency is gold-pressed latinum.
12) I know what a filk is, and have written several.
13) Rule Of Acquisition #76: "Every once in awhile, declare peace. It confuses the hell out of your enemies."

Well I was going to be equally nerdy and quote the law about "Never let family stand in the way of making a profit," but I couldn't remember off hand which Rule of Acquisition that one was.

I love the BBC and the Original Star Trek. Cheers!!

Oh, I think you are more than a nerd. I think you are nerd royalty.

Honest to god, the first thing I thought when I read #4 was "who the fuck doesn't know the difference between a Cardassian and a Romulan?"

Square1: That would be Rule Of Acquisition #6.

Matt-man: Yay! I like both of those too. I think my favorite Trek is DS9, but that's mostly because of Quark. I really love Quark. :)

Mr. Fab: Now I just need to find my nerd-prince!

Gwen: Atta girl! :)

I know that Klingons and Tribbles hate each other.

I know that Number One is a rank and a person.

I know that it's not a good idea to wear a red shirt as a member of a landing party.

I know that a landing party is also called an away team.

Some would say that anyone who isn't able to discuss Trek fun facts is the one without much of a life.

Travis: I'm so proud of you!! :)
