Greetings and Salutations!

My resolution for this year is to just be more creative in general.  Whether it be writing (I will finish a story this year), building things for the house (the wife has a long honey-do list that involves a lot of manual labor), or publishing a blog.  Although, I suppose the latter does tie into the first, but still.

I'm also planning on trying to pull away from Facebook more.  + seems to be developing nicely, and I like having everything all in one spot, whether it be mail, YouTube, news, and their Drive has made my life much easier, both at home and at work.

But, to the point.  Here it is, my first blog post.  Let's hope it is not the last, but let's face it, I have the attention span of a fruit fly.  Now, initially, those of you who find yourself here will do so based on a link through Facebook and Google+, so you'll already know who I am, and may even know a little about me.  This post is not for you.

My name is Dave, and I am very much a geek.  I know far more then I should about Star Wars,  I'm a tad obsessed with Star Trek, I have forgotten more about Doctor Who then most of the so-called "nu-Who" fans will ever learn.  Yes, I'm bitter.  Nothing is more annoying then meeting a "die-hard" Doctor Who fan who has no knowledge of Tom Baker, Peter Davison, or the other 6 Doctors.  And then when you mention the non-canon Dalek movies with Peter Cushing as the Doctor, their eyes start to glaze over. 

Oh, and if the above paragraph hadn't clued you in, I'm a bit of an intelligence snob.  I try not to be, but I have very little patience with anyone who has no desire to learn something, and I have a bit of difficulty with the concept that others may not have the same fanatical desire to consume all the information available about a chosen topic.  Add in that the goth in me makes it difficult for me to enjoy whatever the "cool" thing is, and, well, suffice it to say that my wife has the patience of a saint.  I'm a bit of a cantankerous bastard, but I've been told that, much like a fungus, I grow on you eventually. 

Oh, and the title?  A to Zeo?  Well, I go by Zeo online.  Zeolas, Zeowyrm, or some other variation of Zeo-.  I thought it was a cool name to use, and it tends to not be used much, although I have bumped into one or two others.  Little did I realize that I took the name from a Power Rangers series.  Thanks Netflix, for reminding me of just how much of a geek I am.

Anyways, that's enough of an intro for now.  I think tomorrow's post will be dedicated to one of my current gaming obsessions.
