The Geeky Girl Tag

I know I’ve done this before but it was quite a while ago and likes and dislikes change over time, so I’m doing it again! I noticed this recently on A Geeky Gal and those are the questions I’m using today.

What is your must-have tech gadget?

It has to be my iPad. Here’s a pretentious thing to say – if I didn’t also have an iMac, I’d be lost without my iPad. Urgh, I know right!? I realise I’m very, very lucky to have both but I can’t choose between them as often they are my link to the outside world and company during the day, rather than just house plants and delivery drivers.

Which house do you belong to in Hogwarts?

I’d have to say Gryffindor because it’s summed up by courage, honour, courtesy, justice, and a readiness to help the weak. I am a very full-on person when it comes to standing up for myself and calm when navigating possibly dangerous situations. I’ve always stood up for others too and have a very strong sense of fairness and justice.

Who is your favorite Doctor?

Has to be Christopher Eccleston, mainly as I fancy the arse off him.

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

If you look at how Spock behaves when he’s been on the Enterprise for a long time and how he logically thinks about problems but how he cares about others welbeing, I’m sure he’s an Aspie (although no one has ever officially confirmed this).

What is your gaming system of choice?

Playstation is what I had then and its what I have now, with a mostly ignored XBox in between.

If you had a super power, what would it be?

Teleportation. I would go on clothes shopping sprees (where I’d get to try stuff on, rather guessing sizes online) and buy free-from veggie food for lunch from my fave places. I’d visit cities and national parks around the world. I’d go on beach holidays but only for ten minutes at a time because of the heat. I’d do some superhero stuff too, of course but only after I’d finished my Humingbird cupcake from New York’s Magnolia Bakery.

What is your favorite fantasy world?

Rivendell. Just look at that architecture and nature!

If you could be any fictional race, what would you be?

This is a bit of weird answer but I look very different from most English people and from my family. I’m also an Aspie so I don’t get a lot of what people do. For instance in Manchester people say “Y’oright?” but they aren’t actually asking “Are you all right?” It’s just a way of saying “Hi”. But I find myself thinking they must be concerned about my health if I’m having a wobbly/fatigued day and genuinely answering them – doh! Also when people say “Yeah, we’ll have to catch up sometime.” I’m like “Ok, when?” then I realise they didn’t actually mean that either. So a lot of the time I feel like I’m already from some other race, from some other planet anyway.

Star Trek or Star Wars?

Star Trek as I think the new Star Trek Discovery series is engaging, well written and well acted and because Jason Issacs.

The Geeky Girl Tag

The Geeky Girl Tag

This tag has been going since the start of the year and was started by Zombie Goddess Beauty  but I came across it on A Geek Girls Guide. I’ve been under representing the geeky side of me on this blog recently so thought it would be a great tag to join in with!

1. What is your must-have tech gadget?

My Macbook Pro as it’s essential for blogging (the WordPress app on the iPad can be quite hit and miss) and for storing all of my photo’s.

2. Which house do you belong to in Hogwarts?

So I’ve done a few of the sorting hat quizes to answer this question and decided to ignore the very mixed answers. I’m clever in an unconventional way, intense sometimes but open minded, creative, determined, street wise and have a strong sense of fairness and loyalty. So who knows!?

3. Who is your favorite Doctor?

I have never been able to take it seriously tbh But I’m willing to give the one’s with Peter Capaldy a go because he’s a fantastic actor.

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

Captain Sean Renard from Grimm because he would appreciate the finer things. I doubt there would be any immediate threat of peril and if there was he’s pretty handy. He looks good in a suit and especially out of one incase we skipped desert.

5. What is your gaming system of choice?

I’m going to say the original Playstation because their are so many classic games on there that I love, like Spyro The Dragon, Crash Bandicoot, Cool Boarders, Tekken and Odd World and Devil Dice.

6. If you had a super power, what would it be?

I think a fair one would be Teleportation because I could visit countries that would be too hot or too cold for me to cope with IRL (which are a lot of them) and then just leave when I’d had enough. The second would be to have people notice I’m struggling because of chronic hidden illness and to offer to help me. Amazing for days when I’m exhausted and feeling week and/or brain foggy but I have shopping to do. However, that’s robbing people of their free will so not exactly fair!

7. What is your favorite fantasy world?

Most of the ones created by Studio Gibli and the Miyazaki’s as anything magical can happen there.

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

Sometimes I feel rather Vulcan but I think I’d quite like to be from Helion Prime (The Chronicles of Ridick) way before the Necromongers arrive obviously as they look like a nice people on a nice planet.

9. Star Trek or Star Wars?

I’ve tried to watch Star Wars three times and even as a kid I could never take it seriously when Jabba The Hut and other aliens would show up I’ll give The Last Jedi a chance though. I love the two modern Star Treck films and it’s really given me an appreciation for the type of man Spock is. I say ‘man’ rather than Vulcan deliberately, as he chooses to be his own man and make his own choices and not to just follow blindly what went before him.

10. List your top 5 geektastic movies or TV Series.

Oh you are killing me with this question!

TV series – The Flash, Westworld, Jessica Jones, Grimm, The Man in the High Castle. Retro shout out to My So Called Life, Daria, Third Rock From The Sun and The Mysterious Cities of Gold.

Film – The Crow, Sin City, Terminator, Avatar, The Craft. Retro shout out to Teen Witch, Fright Night, Legend and Labyrinth.

11. List your top 5 favorite video games.

At the moment I’m stuck with C.O.D. on the Bloke’s PS4. Even though I like it, it gives me sensory overload after a few hours. If we are talking all time, I’ll go with Bounder (C64), Bubble Bobble (C64), Sonic The Hedgehog (Sega Mega Drive), Translworld Snow Boarding (XBox), Spiro The Dragon (PS1).
