Geek of the Week: Meet Colt

I'm so excited to start off this feature with a profile of the biggest geek I know—my husband.

What's your name?

Where are you from?

What does it mean to you to be a geek/nerd?
Being a geek/nerd to me means being enthusiastic and excited about the things you like regardless of what others think.

What are 2–5 things you're particularly passionate about?
Math, video games, graphic novels and cycling. (And my WIFE!)

Why are you passionate about these things?
They are the things I enjoy and I find entertaining. (And my wife because she's awesome and wonderful,  duh!)

Do you have any special or hidden talents?
I'm musically inclined, or so I've been told.

What was your favorite book/movie/TV show/other from 2011?
My road bike.

What book/movie/TV show/other are you most looking forward to in 2012?

Do you have a "go-to" karaoke/Rock Band song? What is it?
"Sweet Caroline."

What are three websites you like to visit every day?
TeeMagnet.com, Bonktown.com and chocolateandcreamcake.blogspot.com. (Ed. note: What a suck-up!)

Colt's bonus questions:

If you had to choose one of them, would you rather be BFFs with Abed or Troy? Why?
Abed. Because I'm more like Troy and would be a good compliment to Abed.

In what place or country would you most like to ride your bike?
I'd love to climb Luz-Saint-Sauveur, France and tour around the UK.

Thanks, Colt, for being my Geek of the Week guinea pig! (I love you!)

If you'd like to be a future GotW, please email me.

P.S.—I promise Colt was not paid to say such sweet things about me.
