The Geeky Girl Tag

I saw this on Karin‘s blog and decided that it’s a great opportunity to revive my blog, which as usual is being neglected by me. Despite having a monthly reminder to blog, I continue to not have convincing ideas for not-boring blog posts at the moment.

#1: What is your must-have tech gadget?

I’m a little bit torn between my phone and my laptop… though my phone basically has everything on it that I need, I still prefer to have everything on a bigger screen, and with total control. So I’m tending more towards my laptop.

#2: Which House do you belong to in Hogwarts?

According to Pottermore, I’m a Gryffindor (and I did the sorting there twice). That was very surprising for me, because I’m totally not a bold and brave person. I’m actually quite the opposite, as I’m a total introvert. But perhaps that’s what makes me even more brave – having to jump over my own shadow takes a lot of effort for me. If I could have chosen myself, I’d have identified more with Ravenclaw.

#3: Who is your favourite Doctor?

Ten, who else? He’s just the best. I’ve watched all of New Who and the first season of Classic Who, and if I’d had to rank those Doctors, it would be 10, 9, 1, 12, 11.

#4: If you could have dinner with any fictional character, who would it be?

Such a hard question… I honestly don’t know. I prefer going to dinner with my friends and I think if I had to go to dinner with someone ‘famous’ (to me), I’d just be starstruck and it would be very awkward.

But I definitely know who I’d like to NOT have dinner with: Hannibal Lecter. 😆

#5: What is your gaming system of choice?

I’m actually not that much of a gamer, since the only games I really played in the past ~10 years are Diablo III and Skyrim. I played Diablo III on my MacBook and I played Skyrim on the XBOX. Both work fine for me, but I have to admit that the XBOX is more comfortable because you can be lazy on the couch AND play a game.

#6: If you had a superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation. It would be so convenient if I could just pop over to New York and hang out in Central Park for my lunch break, or to go to all of those places I’ve always wanted to visit without having to worry about insane flight costs.

#7: What is your favourite fantasy world?

Star Wars, probably? I like the idea of many planets being home to many different alien species, and I often wonder what’s out there in the real universe.

Similarly, I also like the world of Farscape. Though I’m still not sure if it’s a good show, the Farscape universe is just so delightfully alien.

#8: If you could be any fictional race, what would you be?

I’d like to be a witch, as in Harry Potter. Magic (and stuff like apparition) would just make life so much more convenient. (I’m not really sure if that qualifies as a race though).

#9: Star Trek or Star Wars?

Star Wars! I’ve only watched the new Star Trek films, so I’m not really qualified to like Star Trek anyway.

#10: List your top 5 geektastic movies or TV shows.

The Whedonverse is strong in this one…

  • Doctor Who
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Babylon 5
  • Firefly
  • Spartacus

#11: List your top 5 video games.

This is hard when you’re not much of a gamer 😆 I’d much rather list my top five board games, but here’s my attempt at my top 5 video games. It’s obvious I don’t play much…

  • Skyrim
  • Diablo I, II and III
  • The Curse of Monkey Island
  • Grim Fandango
  • ….um, no idea. Overlord, maybe?

If you’re interested, you’re welcome to grab this and post it on your own blog, but I won’t tag anyone 🙃
