It’s quite curious that a lot of the things that I was [am] a fan of are some of the same things that Jordan was [is] a fan of, too…
Myst, Starcraft, Brood War, World of Warcraft, Mortal Kombat Street Fighter Marvel vs Capcom Kingdom Hearts Halo Soul Caliber DDR and all that gamer stuff, Iron Chef, Stargate, Starship Troopers, The Big Hit, Disneyland & Disney movies, Harry Potter series, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, Prairie Home Companion, karaoke, Japanese culture, space, Diggnation, and Totally Rad Show to name a few* (current interests notwithstanding).
The only other person I know who has a permutation of this geekery set is Nathan – Jordan’s brother.
But other than your bestest friend(s), could you tout this many connections with anyone? It’s different when you & a best friend (or boyfriend) are discovering these things together for the first time. Jordan and I were passionate about ALL of this stuff before we even met!
I haven’t even mentioned involuntary similarities like growing up Seventh-Day Adventist, being filipino, Pathfinder years, drill team, eldest children, choir, singing groups, academy, doing the exact same concentration at CSU at exactly the same time, etc…
It’s just surreal how many of our interests overlap.
I’m the [semi]equivalent of a girl Jordan. LOL. 🙂
It’s as if we geekified ourselves…for each other.
* we’re both highly knowledgeable / well-versed in aforementioned interests; not anything we simply claim to like.
