blogger and geek who likes to write about everything from crafts to cosplay to Star Wars. I like when people are passionate about things.
The Nerdy Girlie: What is your 1st nerd memory?
Amy: I think my geek tendencies started around 10 when I read A Wrinkle in Time, but I don't remember it clearly so I tend to jump forward. I distinctly recall tuning into Star Trek: The Next Generation one night because I knew my dad liked it, and it was a Wesley Crusher-centric episode called The Game. I was hooked. I was in junior high and it wasn't too long before the series wrapped up because I remember watching best episode marathons.
TNG: How and why did you start blogging?
Amy: I've always enjoyed writing but for many years I just thought the only kind of writing I should do was fiction. I don't know why. And I wasn't so great at it. When I realized I could connect with others about everyday, real life stories I was sold. I started blogs about food and travel before I hit on Geek with Curves and realized I loved the heck out of blogging about my nerd passions.
TNG: YOUR favorite blog read?
TNG: What is your favorite thing/things to nerd out about?
Amy: Oh, I'm way too enthusiastic for my own good. Star Wars is a given, especially The Clone Wars. I can talk anyone's ear off about that series endlessly. I also have a blast modifying recipes and making food from fiction and taking it to the level of crazy themed parties. It's not exactly nerdy, but I get crazy excited about Disneyland.
TNG: Any tips for San Diego Comic Con?
Amy: You know, I keep learning new things every year I attend. I'll go with the obvious but easy to forget: carry a bottle of water and carry snacks. Do it even if your shoulder is bruised and you can't bear the the thought of adding anything else to your bag. I can't tell you how many days I've ended up with a headache or worse after 8 hours at the convention center without eating or drinking much of substance.
TNG: Girlie things you love?
Amy: I have a weakness for nerd themed necklaces. I could probably wear a different one every day for a month. I have an addiction to Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's perfume oils. Oh, and Disney Princesses. I've improved many a bad day by watching The Little Mermaid, Tangled, Brave, and Sleeping Beauty.
