Well my birth father is an electronics geek and retro gamer. My sister is on to anime somewhat and Japanese gore movies. Overall I'm the hardcore nerd but I have traits from them that usually gives some common thread.

My dad and uncle are very obsessed with Star Wars. While my mom has only recently discovered her obsession with The Walking Dead.

no, unfortunately I'm the only geek/dork and they (family) keep me at a distance.

My family have varying degrees of nerdiness and dorkiness. My dad shares my nerdiness for comic books and Wrestling. My mom and I have a shared nerdiness for Game of Thrones. My sister..well, she has some there, but I don't know exactly where it would fall under. I, however, have so many types of doriness and nerdiness that I am in whole different league than them.

Nope.....I was introduced to the gloriousness of the geek world through friends and my boyfriend at the time (now husband). It was as if I saw the light on the other side. When I was younger though, I was OBSESSED with Sailor Moon (I still am among many other anime obsessions).

I grew up without cable, but with a library in our basement of about 2500 books, with a huge quantity of sci fi and fantasy (which I will be inheriting when my parents downsize their house, woo!). Though we didn't have cable, my Dad owns every episode of Star Trek TOS and TNG on VHS, as well as the original Star Wars trilogy. I wasn't much of a gamer until recently, but I'm definitely a geek born and bred.

Yeah, my father's kind of a witty, snarky, eccentric "nerdyish" person like me.

My mom she is into Star Wars, Shanara and Stephen King books she has that book smarts but my dad he has street smarts he is a great negotiator me and my 2 sisters happened. We have the best of both but my mom's nerdiness shows the most in me than my 2 sisters as for I enjoy anime, manga and video game music but what trait I got from my dad is my ability to talk to and get along with anyone. I do enjoy rap music something I got from both them is the ability to enjoy a wide spectrum of music.
