Wannabe Geek


Topic # 138901 21-Jan-2014 12:24 Send private message

Hi there.

I'm new here, so I thought I'd pop in and introduce myself. I'm not really a Geek. I just love technology and use it a lot (does that count?). 

I live in Gisborne, am married and have a daughter, dog and cat. I love gardening, cooking, photography, guitar and reading (novels, I'm afraid - definitely counts me out of the Geek label!).

Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you. 

Cheers,

Michaela

You sound at least as Geek as me, so welcome! :)

I'm the housewife, and don't work in the tech industry, live north of Auckland, and help hubby with our construction and rental businesses. I also try to get our 19yo son studying so he can get into Navy




Muddling along, being the most technical in the house, one of the oldest, and female .... hmmmmm gotta be some stereotypes busted in there somewhere.

Thanks for your warm welcome. You're all right, of course: reading novels doesn't discount one from geekdom! I guess, because I don't consider myself worthy of the geek title, I just thought perhaps true geeks don't read novels a lot, but I concede the point! :)

Jevvv, I'm a housewife, too, and I also have a 19 year old, but of the opposite sex. She originally wanted to become a police officer, but she's had a few issues (health) so that's probably not likely at this stage.

I might point out, however, that my Geekzone status has me listed as a wannabe geek!...lol.

Me :)
