You speak Elvish or Klingon well enough to communicate at Cons with people attending from other countries.....

Sadly, languages are not my forte, so I am not that nerdy.
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

I knew I'd achieved nerdhood when I started watching the original Japanese Power Rangers and liked them.

I'm hopeless.

It's a testament to my own nerdiness that I just went "Japanese Power Rangers??!? AAHHH!!" Found them on YouTube. They are really something. I think I still prefer the other ones though.

(It is a testament to my age that I actually have some shows and the Power Rangers Movie on VHS.  :-[ ::) )

DH and DS were watching LOTR: The Two Towers while DH was playing Mass Effect 2. I was upstairs and heard swordplay and horse hooves interspersed with gunfire, it was a little odd.

Getting a hairstyle based on a character from a beloved series.  Especially when it's not a major character in the books or movies but you just like the character.

For me it's Tonks from Harry Potter. :)

I agree! :)  I even colored it with a dark magenta coloring kit so it turned out looking dark purple, but the dye I used (Garnier) didn't take on all of my hair.  Dh says it looks intentional so that's good! LOL!

But I really like the cut.

There are actually a number of Japanese Power Ranger series because each year is a totally new concept and team.  Go to gooddrama.net and check out Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (Power Rangers Samurai) to see my personal favorite.  Even better are the various Kamen Rider series.

I saw a shirt on a mannequin in a shop window.  It was a pale gold color, with big gold "pearls" studded in lines running up and down it.  My first thought wasn't, "what a pretty shirt," it was "DALEK!!!"

I have a maroon and black top ala Captain Picard. DH just thinks it's a normal top and still doesn't understand why some people act a little odd when they see me in it. :P

Hey, it's not my fault he refuses to watch any star trek other than the most recent movie!

Thank you for taking all my free time in the next week. ;D Those are better than the YouTube ones!

You name your firstborn after an obscure character from a beloved sci-fi TV series.

Baby Jolinar has had approximately 2% recognition of the origin of her name.
... it might frighten them.

You know you've achieved nerdhood when you get the above reference. It's from SG-1.

If I'd had twin boys I would have named them Fred and George. :)

I fully anticipate having to argue with my as-yet-unfound future husband over which fandom we're giving our children names from.

Also, when you go to a party, and the pick-up lines go more like "what's your alignment?" than "what's your sign?"
