So, I've been wanting to thank you for a while for being my gateway to Geek. See, Stand By Me came out on tape when I was 11 or 12 (I don't know why I didn't see it in the theater, I suppose because of the rating), and it quickly became my all-time favorite movie, watched a zillion times, and was a staple for any slumber party I held or attended. A friend and I watched it again a couple of weekends ago, for the first time in years, and I was amazed at all of the memories and feelings that came flooding back. But that's another story. How were you my Gateway to Geek? Well my crush on you/Gordie led me to Start Treck, TNG. I watched it for you, with all the reverence of an adolescent girl with a crush. That's powerful stuff, adolescent girl devotion, and it kept me tuning in even after I cringed at "I feel strange, but also good." And that's when my Geek really started to develop. I mean, Star Trek! What a world! Fantasy and Sci Fi books quickly came along, and in high school, role playing. My favorite character was a battleaxe-wielding giant with a weak constitution. Every time I succeeded in battle, I'd have to role to make sure I could go on without throwing up, much to the sadistic glee of my DM. ANYWAY, all of this is my clumsy way of thaking you. Obviously the potential for my geekiness was always there, but you were the catalyst. So, thanks.
