Weregeek: I was promised geeks in costumes!

Weregeek and Ghostbusters car

Who ya gonna call?

Ok, so, I’ve been asked to give MY perspective on living with a geek. Haha, love it!

Last Saturday, I attended my first Free Comic Book Day. Usually, Pete spares me (out of concern for me, or humiliation on his part?) and goes on his own. This year, I was invited to come along. I was only going if I would get to see geeks in costumes AND get to take my picture with them! So worth it!

The morning was actually surprisingly fun! Ghostbusters car, Superman, the Penguin and more. Fav quote of the day, Penguin talking to Superman: “This is my new nose…”

The Penguin

Showing off his new nose!

The costumes and even non-costumed nerds made standing in line entertaining. A tiny Captain America, so cute!  But the line was also… sorry, but it’s true… kinda smelly. What’s up with that?

I was super excited to get my free baggie! Free stuff is always good. And free soda fountain drinks. Yum! But, what, no grape soda for the nerds?

I’m a few comics into my bag of goodies and so far I have a few that sparked my interest, most notably “Love and Capes.”

Definitely had a good time at Free Comic Book Day (even if it DID mean missing my weekly spin class!). And, well, I owed him… he DID go to a bodybuilding show with me recently….


Enter the WereGeek



Coming soon.  By day she is a personal trainer and fitness enthusiast.  But when the night is right a transformation begins.  Until … with little warning (except for the fact she’s a chubby chaser) … she becomes the WereGeek!

That’s right, my much less geeky wife is going to begin posting her honest thoughts on what it is like to be married to and live by night as a geek.  This should be fun.  I often worry what her real thoughts are on my geeky habits.   This is her chance to express them.  I encourage her to be perfectly honest.  We’re thinking she can post a non-habitual comics reader review of comics, maybe once a week or so.  When I drag her to geeky events she can post her thoughts on them (look for her review of Free Comic Book Day 2010 coming soon.)  She can say what she REALLY thinks about the tons of comics, books, video games and toys we have around the house.  So if you’re a geek or married to a geek or just wonder about geeks in a National Geographic sort of way, watch for her posts coming soon.
