Last week, Lily began the series ‘If we were having coffee’ here on The Travelling Geek Show and this week it is my turn to invite you into my home for a coffee! Part of my conversation topics will be a response to Lily’s last week, so make sure to read hers too! Now, make yourself comfortable and enjoy this fine Saturday!
- If we were having coffee, I’d admit that although I’ve watched Avatar: The Last Airbender, I haven’t seen every episode and no episode of Legend of Korra. If you’d ask me, I’d proudly declare that I’d like to be a proud earth bender (without being able to explain why exactly).
- If we were having coffee, I’d tell you everything about my latest LOTRO adventures. How I struggle to gain levels to finally leave Moria. How my level 58 Hobbit Hunter can’t wait to explore Lothlorien and say ‘Hi’ to Lady Galadriel. Yes, you would have to endure countless screenshots of places I fell in love with in LOTRO. Since I’m new to MMO gaming, I’d then ask you if you could recommend other MMOs for me.
- If we were having coffee, I’d ask you about your geeky childhood heroes only to talk nonstop about mine! I’d begin with how I always wanted to be Egon Spengler and Peter Venkman from The Ghostbusters while, at the same time, I also wanted to date them (and still do!). Early on, I wanted to be as cool as they were and obtain a Phd (another thing that I still want). I’d also tell you how Indiana Jones’ heroic adventures made me want to become an archaeologist when I grew up…Until I actually grew up and realized that the life of an archaeologist is nothing like that of Indy.
- If we were having coffee, I’d ask you if you’d ever heard of (or even read!?) China Mieville’s books. A few years ago I’ve read Embassytown and was so enthralled by it that I’ve immediately bought his book The City & The City. Since I’ve been so unbelievably busy I’m still reading The City & The City (and love every bit of it). If China Mieville is unknown to you, I wouldn’t let you go without showing the following video, hoping you’ll start reading Embassytown as well!
