I'm skinny, but no glasses. I've been told I look like the bearded Lone Gunman from the X-files, except I don't wear a suit. I have somewhat good design sense, but I'm always either too poor or too lazy (or both) to apply it to clothes. Give me loose, functional pants and a t-shirt. I prefer theory to the technical side of life, but I'm definitely a nerd.

I fall into the normal "range" if you consider a single mom of two a typical mudder. I have enjoyed mudding for the last 7-8 years and building for the last 5-6 of them. Its a fun way for me to escape with out actually leaving the house!!!! (Saves a fortune in baby sitting fees). For me, both mudding and building are creative outlets for me. It get to talk to people from around the world without killing my phone bill and have a great time doing so. Yes, I guess I fall into the addiction mode of it too...

Well I'm one of the three who said that they go to the gym regularly.

I don't really. I run, and work out at home.  I go to the gym when I get bored of my house.  Then I study for school, play on my muds and spend time with my bodyfriend or go to sleep.

I used to want to be a model, I kinda still do.  I have a portfolio and everything.  I went to modeling school when I was younger but after age 15 I stopped really pushing to reach that goal. I have my headshots and stuff just in case, you know.

I'm one of those weird guys who wears all black and such. No piercings, they draw too much attention. As long as everyone thinks you're a good little christian, they're still prey.

I am normal, wear normal clothes, and have a normal life. In fact I am a jock and a scholar. I am on the speech team and am in training to get my high schools academic deploma, at the same time i am in sports... Mudders get stereotyped too often.

Mudding isn't the same as being a nerd. On the contrary.
Mudding or playing online games is a way to escape reality and to relieve pressure of real life.
99% of the nerds "program" every day, brag about how much they study or what they know about computers or whatever, they don't "play games". Because if you play just games, you are no nerd anymore.
A lot of mudders are very shy people who can't express their feelings in rl, and use the mud to be more open and to express their feelings.

Nerds = Freaks
Muds = a way to escape rl.

In which case, they are nerds.

The Merriam-Webster Online dictionary definition of a "nerd" is "an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person; especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits"

After reading that, I still can't figure out if I'm a nerd or not. I think I'm socially inept enough, though.

- unstylish : On the contrary.
- Unattractive : On the contrary, some girls say I am very handsome but I guess that's personal taste.
- socially inept person : I am very shy especially towards girls, I can't really express myself very well.
I love to go out and make new friends however and I go to the gym almost every day for the "chicks" *cackle*.
- especially : one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits" : Eh? Studying what is that?
I am probably one of the laziest persons on earth(I am not joking)

I don't wear glasses, I am not pale(I have a nice brown color), however I am skinny.

Am I a nerd? *blink*

I'm the equivalent of chaotic neutral (my own definition of it anyway). Most of my time is spent in front of my computer, my fingers flying across my keyboard as I kill yet another mob. But I've got a life too, and I try to spend as much time as I can socializing and generally being cool. I'm on the brink between nerd and cool.

NERD------------ME-----------COOL

Appearance wise, I'm nowhere near your stereotypical nerd. I don't have glasses, my hair isn't all that greasy, and my skin, while not exactly Jennifer Love Hewitt, isn't a minefield. I'm quite self-concious about my appearance and try to look as good as possible in public, but when i'm in front of my computer it doesn't matter (obviously) and it's not unknown for me to sit here in a t-shirt and boxers, surrounded by crisp packets and empty coffee mugs, at 1am.

Guess I'm just a spontaneous person. Or maybe a freak. You decide

I guess when I was in high school, about 12-15 years ago, I was the typical pale, zit-covered, socially inept, withdrawn into technology nerd type. That was before alcohol became far too important to me and I became a parent at 15. Since then things have come more into perspective. Now, I am twice the size I was in high school, twice the intellect and twice the charmer As you can tell from the Staff link on my MUD, I work hard and have the (sore) muscles to prove it.

Now I MUD to relieve the stress from work and life in general.

MUDding also pleases my "inner geek"!

I'm...well...me.

Guess I'll go with the definition most of my friends use...I'm a teddy bear. Heh.(Women love teddy bears, apparently...who knew?)

As for a physical description...5'8", 200-somethingorother pounds(Am I only person in the world that doesn't care about weight?), dark brown hair, dark brown eyes(which I'm told remind people of little bits of marijuana...go figure.)

No glasses...though I probably should use safety-type ones...always get whacked near/in the eyes.

Enough babbling out of me...

Rocker chick here. If you had to classify i guess you could say indie or gods forbid emo.

Usualy wearin dark jeans, fitting button down shirts or plain black or white t-shirts. I do wear glasses or sometimes contacts. Depends on what I plan on doing for the day. I do have piercings and tattoo's. Usually wearing clunky shoes to make up for my shortness.

I wouldn't proudly classify myself as either normal or pierced. I'm just me. A lot of the time you can't even tell I have piercings or tattoo's. Most people wouldn't classify me as a nerd until they heard me talk about gaming or comics.

Red face

I fall into the pale, thin category, alas. God knows why. I do a good fifty push-ups daily, yet I do not seem to gain an ounce of weight. My excuse for being pale? Hell, I live in Washington, and yes, I rarely leave my humble abode.

Other than these two factors, however, I am relatively "normal" for an eighteen-year-old male. Often found in public wearing a long, black leather trench coat, black jeans, and a gray tee shirt, people typically place me as a goth. I have little doubt that my silver cross and my silver loop in my left ear further contribute to this impression. In either case, when I am at home, I tend to dress quite differently, opting for a brightly colored dress shirt and a pair of baggy cargo pants. To summarize, I'm usually clothed in a tasteless manner twenty-four seven.

Appearance-wise, I suppose I would be considered average, or maybe even slightly attractive, with sharp, narrow features, a pretty clear (excluding stubble) complexion, and non-descript brown eyes. My hair, also a dark brown, is short, straight, and usually slicked down and parted in the middle.

I'm only taking the time to write this reply because I am bored, mind you. I suspect, however, that it will give the impression that I actually like talking about my pitiful, worthless self. Believe what you will.

You have not lived in Washington long enough to blame the look on the climate, Ghardoan!

Just wait. You haven't even seen the worst of it yet.
