I am a female who's been into one form of fandom or another since...oh, gads, does anyone remember Quark?
Anyway, I'm a nerd, a bookworm (no, that's not redundant), and old enough to remember the moon shots, but young enough not to have thought they were anything special. (So, yes, waaaay over 18. Phooey!)
Yet I still wonder what I'd like to be when I 'grow up'.
