Proud nerd

Sometimes,when I say I am a nerd, people make disbelieving noises. This bugs me, because I am proud to be a nerd. The fact that I hold a responsible job, and do (nerdy) sports, and that I do not look like the Big Bang characters, does not make me less of a nerd.

Nerdy things I have done 2015
Nerdcruise (aka Joco Cruise 5)--including side trip to Arecibo Radio Telescope, nerd knitting circle, winning nerd trivia
Boskone (one night--especially for the trivia contest, did I come in second? and I heard Brother Guy and Joan Slonczewski and others talk about science lab disaster stories. I avoided the major snowstorm however)
Hugo awards--I nominated, and got mad at the Sad Puppies situation, and cheered their comeuppance
Weird Al concert (New Bedford)
Nerds and Music concert--Rothfuss, Paul and Storm, Joel Hodgson (the MST3K guy)
Readercon
Science Fiction Book CLub

And the crossword contests (ACPT and Lollapuzzoola) are a different flavor of nerdiness, as is my playing curling and watching soccer (go Revs!)  Also trivia, online and at the bars.
