My name is Kadomi, and I am a dedicated nerd.
Nerd is a term that refers to a social perception of a person who avidly pursues intellectual activities, technical or scientific endeavors, esoteric knowledge, or other obscure interests, rather than engaging in more social or conventional activities. It occasionally carries a derogatory connotation or stereotype, especially in early use of the word. Nerds are generally considered to be awkward, shy and/or unattractive by most, although this is not always true. Thus, a nerd is often excluded from physical activity and considered a loner by others, or will tend to associate with a small group of like-minded people, although again, this is not always the case.

I don’t agree with the definition that you have to be unattractive, awkward or shy to be a nerd, nor that you are not engaging in social activities. We just do so on our own terms.
When we moved to our current home, we moved to an area where all license plates start with NE. There was no doubt for us ever that we would get a NE-RD license plate. To my regret, neither 1337 nor 404 were available.
This blog is going to be my new home, a place where I can talk about all my nerdy passions. My TV highlights, movies, books, and of course games, either boardgames, tabletop or any kind of computer game. It’s all going to be here, on my own terms, my space, my thoughts. This is not my WoW blog anymore, where I always worried that I would get flak from readers for getting my theorycraft wrong. This is about my nerdy fun. I cannot wait.
