Number 333 and a double winner - you really WIN on so many levels once in a lifetime! How very cool!thumbsup

So congratulations, Nadia!

mbWho's your favourite Doctor? (pun intended) - Who of course! Incarnations 5, 9 and 10 (Baker, Eccleston, Tennant)
mbChoose 3 games from your collection and explain why everyone should have or at least have tried them once. - hmmm, 1. The Hobbit - it has everything - adventure, treasure, cards, dice - and dwarves! 2. Arkham Horror - it is so very complex with a lot of options - wanna fight - go and fight, wanna explore eldritch stuff - here you go, need help from the companions - welcome etc etc. 3. Forbidden Island - it gives you the feeling of being Indie
mbWhat's your kind of music? Do you visit concerts? - rock and metal and everything in between (folk metal, industrial etc), though I don't like when the vocals involve growling I used to visit rock sessions, now too lazy
mbWhich books are you currently reading? - Currently I'm reading academic stuff for thesis most (good I had to re-read Professor's stuff for it too), but Pratchett's "Unseen Academicals" are still waiting to be finished
mbDo you have any favourite historical period you really like, or one you feel you'd like to know more about because it soudns interesting? - I'm a sucker for Nordic theme, but not in historical aspect, but in mythological. I also like the period of Pre-Norman-Conquest England.


Thanks for your questions and for the turtles!


I'm really, really glad to see Eccleston on your list of favorites. I just finished David Tennant's run a little while ago, haven't seen any Matt Smith yet, but Christopher's acting is what made me love the show (particularly in the episode "Dalek"). Everyone always bashes on him, but he's MY doctor.

I liked him, or rather: still like him a LOT, and completely agree - "Daleks" was a great episode in all respects. Especially with the arch-nemesis returned!

Which leads us to my next question.

Which of the Doctor's enemies do you like most, Nad, and why? Apart from the Master.robot

I'd even say that even though Tennant is awesome and everything, there's just this something in Eccleston that makes it hard NOT to love him. And it was rather difficult to get used to Ten after him.

Why, why apart from Master? I certainly cannot tell for the classic series, as I still have a huge amount of them to watch. In new series - of course, Daleks, Sontarans were not bad, Sycorax rocked, and the Family of Blood was awesome!

Here is my qs.

baconIn BSG the game, do you make a better cylon or cylon detector? - actually neither I'm not good at bluffing, so when a Cylon I just try not to do smth foolish until the right moment to reveal, and my detecting skills depend more on the Cylons themselves

baconBest Doctor? - Tennant, though I reeeeaally like Eccleston and Baker too.

baconAre you a Phoebe, Rachel or Monica? - :D Monica, but without her obsessive love for order.

baconLegolas or Gimli? - Gimli!



Thanks!

And just now, when you probably thought you were finally done answering questions, the mantis returns with some more! *evil laughter*

So, here we go:

d10-1 Tea or coffee?
d10-2 +35°C or -5? (we're talking normal working day, not lying on the beach kind of day)
d10-3 Worst game you've ever played?
d10-4 What are your plans for after you've finished your thesis?
d10-5 Your ideal vacation - lying on the beach relaxing, or being active (sports, sightseeing)?
d10-6 What is the most important thing in a relationship for it be successful (successful meaning that it lasts for many years and is beneficial to both partners)?
d10-7 Your greatest strength?
d10-8 If you could change one thing about yourself with the flick of a finger, what would it be? (not interested in physical traits, and also only in realistic changes)
d10-9 If you could have one superpower, what would you want?

I'm late to the party, but:

Congratz from Da Ork, too!

And while I'm here, let's also have a few questions:


1. Psychic paper or sonic screwdriver?
2. Daleks or Cybermen?
3. If you could spend 24 hours with any one person out of history, who would it be and what would you be doing?
4. Same question as 3., but this time with any one fictional person (books, movies, TV shows, everything...).
5. Have you designed your own board game (or tried to)? What is it about?
6. Why the hopping turtle?

So, here we go:

d10-1 Tea or coffee? - I like both, but drink more tea than coffee
d10-2 +35°C or -5? (we're talking normal working day, not lying on the beach kind of day) - generally, I like warmth, but between these extremes I'd choose -5. Plus our wet climate in my region makes heat really unbearable
d10-3 Worst game you've ever played? - Snow Tails
d10-4 What are your plans for after you've finished your thesis? - go get a kid
d10-5 Your ideal vacation - lying on the beach relaxing, or being active (sports, sightseeing)? - I'd like to get on a beach if possible, but mostly for swimming, and it may just be occasional, but sightseeing - totally yes! both city scapes and natural wonders.
d10-6 What is the most important thing in a relationship for it be successful (successful meaning that it lasts for many years and is beneficial to both partners)? - patience, understanding and the willingness for compromises from both sides
d10-7 Your greatest strength? - my ability to make friends with most folk (even those I don't want to )
d10-8 If you could change one thing about yourself with the flick of a finger, what would it be? (not interested in physical traits, and also only in realistic changes) - I'd like to be less of a possessor
d10-9 If you could have one superpower, what would you want? - flying / teleportation or telekinesis, what would be available I'm lazy, yeah


Thanks!

Re: Geek of the Week #333 - nadgamgee
Great answers Nad! It's interesting to see which ones we're similar in and which we aren't.
Not sure I understand d10-8 - relating to people, things or both?

For Da Ork:

And while I'm here, let's also have a few questions:


1. Psychic paper or sonic screwdriver? - for me personally - sonic screwdriver, but in this damn country psychic paper would be of use too
2. Daleks or Cybermen? - totally Daleks
3. If you could spend 24 hours with any one person out of history, who would it be and what would you be doing? - Probably, Professor, I'll just stand there in awe Oh, I also could go and fight with William Wallace
4. Same question as 3., but this time with any one fictional person (books, movies, TV shows, everything...). - *all sorts of kinky thoughts rush through hobbit's mind* Yeah, you know I'll say "travel with the Doctor", but still Cleric Preston will be number 1 Other choices could include Agent Smith and Little John as he's portrayed in RH:MiT And not hard to guess what exactly we'll be doing (in case you still wonder - we'll be fighting Neo and steal from the rich and give to the poor, and ... no decent substitute for cleric )
5. Have you designed your own board game (or tried to)? What is it about? - I haven't, but hubby did, it's about magic wars based on rock-paper-scissors mechanic
6. Why the hopping turtle? - oh, just because he's so cute No special fan of TMNT, and I have heaps of TARDIS / hobbit avatars, but the first moment I saw him I know I wanted him for my avatar



Thanks!
