this sounds like fun! The taking interest in 'age-inappropriate' things is spot on- I love the 20's, 30's and 40's and such, I'm a sucker for that Old Hollywood Glamour!

wonder if i can swing two swaps this month? Smiley

Ooo! I wanna do this one! I get called a nerd all the time by my friends (and my sister, but then I call her one back because she likes the same things...). I like the mini aspect, I'll really have to think about it!

It is a very small, easy swap... you can do it! Also, I was listening to music last night and realized I left Dr. Horrible off my list... haha, sometimes its hard to separate geek and nerd, I blend them all the time.

Yep! It's going to be fun. I've seen a few different areas of nerdyness from the questionnaires I've received already and it's given me some ideas.

Personally, I'm an English nerd.  Grin
