Geek Girls Gab with Sarah J.

I’m 25 and live in the greatest city and home to Comic Con, San Diego. I hail from the small farming city of Crest Hill, IL. 
The Nerdy Girlie:  What is your 1st nerd memory?
Sarah:  I’d have to say my first nerd memory was watching the original Doctor Who show as a kid. My uncle and cousins were really into Sci Fi and it rubbed off on me at a very young age. My cousins and I always played “Doctor Who” where we would run around pretending to be the Doctor and random companions chasing away the aliens and saving the planet.  

TNG:  How and why did you start blogging?
Sarah:  I don’t have my own blog yet and have just gotten into social networking recently. I love Pinterest, Tumblr and all my nerdyness is amplified by Twitter. My handle for all these sites is SarJo87. It’s because of these sites that I found people with similar interests/obsessions in all things nerd and have made many new friends. 

TNG:  YOUR favorite blog?
Sarah:  I follow quite a few blogs because of my totally random interests. My favorites are:, and

TNG:  What is your favorite things to nerd out about?
Sarah:  Doctor Who. I can literally talk about it all day if you let me. It’s grown past an obsession now. I am a huge fan of Marvel Comics and grew up reading them all. My favorite shows are Doctor Who, Supernatural, Sherlock, True Blood and anything associated with Marvel comics. I love reading and am a big fan of the Harry Potter and Game of Thrones series. I’m also a geography major so I squeal over rock formations, fault lines and weather. 
TNG:  Any tips for San Diego Comic Con?
Sarah:  Wear comfy shoes, bring snacks, carry cash and ride the trolly. Also if you plan on getting autographs from your favorite celebrities, bring a sharpie. I can’t tell you how many spontaneous autographs I’ve gotten over the years at Comic Con because I came ready with a sharpie and notepad at hand. Celebs appreciate it and are less likely to just walk away since you are prepared. Remember to say “please” and “thank you.” 

TNG:  Girlie things you love?
Sarah:  I love shopping and getting mani/pedis when I can. My idea of a girls night is watching Doctor Who while playing on pinterest with a tub of cookie dough nearby. I also love driving around the San Diego mountains listening to pop music from the 90s.
