Rrrrright, if we're going to get competitive about this geekery business...

Me and the good woman flew all the way to New Yoik to see Star Wars Episode I on its opening day AND enjoyed it (sigh) AND got the train down to Florida to go to a Xena convention (oh yes) AND visit Cape Canaveral.  

And I've just spent my last few quid on a Clone Trooper with Removable Helmet.  

And I can recite ALL the dialogue from Star Wars in orde (try me), and the opening five minutes and major speeches of the other four (to date).  

The  problem the rest of you wannabes have is that you get distracted by your "friends" and "sunshine" and "physical activity".  You're just not bloody trying.

Ok so from reading all this I guess I'm a 2000AD (and related!) collecting NERD.

Don't think there is much that I don't have at least one out of the set.... I'd be more than happy for people to see what they have that I haven't and then steal into their rooms in the dead of night with a very large heavy sharp metal object to make sure I get it...hahahahahha

Possibly with all the the passion and flamboyancy of Dustin Hoffman in Rainman...

I collect badges and post cards in a vague half arsed way I may do something with them one day

I do that too. I don't even know why. But it's not like I get many so meh.

I keep my progs in slip covers in ring binders (two assalts to a binder). It's just that i am a collector. I buy any limeted ed model  by GW.

I do however love participating in team sport and working out at the gym. I'm a jock with geekish tendancies. (I was just adding to my earlier list.)

Are you stalking me? (ROTFLMAO)

"And what about the Star Wars Christmas Special? hum? humm? Didn?t think so. "

As it happens I just got a pressie of a bootleg of the selfsame Christmas Special for my birthday.  It is here my geekishness fails me, and I won't be memorising this one - it is TERRIBLE (no worse than that), a slow-motion car-crash of awfulness so bad it actually goes beyond funny and back to bad...

...BUT the DVD came with literally DOZENS of American Kenner toy commercials from the 70's and early 80's, which were bloody marvellous and a few very nice documentary pieces and inetrviews.

watch it Max you may start to slip from Freakdom to Geekdom then its a slippery slide to Nerdishness

Call yoursef a geek!  That's from the sainted Evan Dorkin's "Eltingville"  strips, any real nerd knows that.  The pure distilled genius of that man never fails to amaze.

Gah! Damn my curious Google tendencies - It all comes rushing back! The alcohol therapy was all for nought!

I don't fit into any of the categories mentioned on this thread.

I'm unique.

Those of you that have admitted to having romantic long-term relationships have all disqualified yourselves from being a nerd.

You may still be a freak, a geek or a spod if you like (although you must be paid a wage to be a geek, and it must be employment that promotes your geekery).
