Greetings from your new contributor!

Photo 18Good morning, Geeksaresexy.net readers! I wanted to take a moment just to say hi and introduce myself. So here goes!

The Basics: My name is Natania and I’m a geek. I’m also a mom, a wife, and a writer. I’ve been a geek since I was a kid, and thankfully embraced it about halfway through high school. A life without Monty Python and Star Wars quotes just isn’t worth it, y’know?

The Cred: As I said, I’ve been a geek for a long time. I’m a fan of both Star Wars and Star Trek (yes, you can be both), I knit and crochet, I love steampunk, I’m a girl gamer (current games: Beatles RockBand and, of course, WoW), I play D&D 4e (currently a level 10 striker paladin) and am a collector of random trivia and marginalia. Other random stuff: I studied medieval literature in graduate school, I’m obsessed with Arthuriana, I love ukuleles, I’ve been using a Mac since before they were cool, and I know far too much about the Old West. That about covers it.

The Pitch: My personal interests are all over the place, but some of the things you can probably expect for me include anything that has to do with steampunk, news on maker culture and cons, book suggestions and reviews, girly gadgets, geek fashion, geeky crafts, and geekery in general.

I’m really excited to part of the Geeks crew here, and look forward to sharing my geeky interests with you all!

  1. So I see crochet and knit, and I see geek crafts. This begs one question from the likes of me: have you made a Jayne hat per online instructions?

    I'm almost to the point of learning these skills just to make myself and my friends some. We'd wear them to secret meetings of Firefly uber-fans.

    • I have not yet tried the pattern, though I hope to this winter. Living in the South, there's a very small window for actual winter-wear, and I always end up making scarves and bags. I saw tons of the hats at Dragon*Con this year, though, so I know it's possible. Can't stop the signal…

  3. Welcome lady geek!! So you like ukuleles – me too! Have you heard of 'The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain'? If not, have a look at them on YouTube etc. – lots of BRILLIANT video clips!

    Love, Light and Peace

    • I love the Ukulele Orchestra, and did indeed discover them a few months back. I spent an entire afternoon playing their videos and giggling like a mad woman. Brilliant, brilliant.
