"Hi, my name is Anna and I'm a Scifi nut."

I've always been a bit fascinated by fantasy or science fiction. I grew up watching Star Trek (the Piccard years) with Mom and I've been watching or reading scifi stuff ever since.

My new addiction is Primeval on the BBC America network, pictured on your left. The Hubs got hooked on to the Doctor Who series after he started watching it with me.

Among my other fave shows to watch are Firefly, Stargate SG-1/Atlantis, Sanctuary and Farscape.

Slowly, but surely, the Hubs is joining in the mania with me. Now I'm not a "Trekkie" or one of those people who stay up at night dreaming of going to the next Comic Con. I just enjoy the fun of escaping into another world an hour at a time. It's neat to see what worlds and cultures some of these show creators come up with. I get the same thing when I read a book where the author has created new societies and even new languages.

I didn't realize that my scifi fascination had reached this height until the Hubs and I started talking about all the shows that we watch. Um, let's just say that if the Scifi channel went off the air, I'd be a mite upset.

Even though I may not be so nutty that I dress up in a fave character's costume, I am that person who keeps an eye out for sales on seasons of the shows we watch. Amazon knows where we live.

So there you have it. My not-so-secret, silly obsession is out. What's your silly obsession? Are you brave enough to share? Huh? *big grin*

Firefly should never have been taken off the air. I swear. I loved that show. Warren has all the episodes on DVD and one day we sat and watched was a marathon of sorts. Then we watched Serenity and I wanted to beat Joss Whedon to death for killing off some of my favorite characters!

I hate to say it, but my obsession are some of those reality shows on TLC and Discovery Health -- Deliver Me, 18 Kids and Counting, etc. I did watch Jon and Kate, but don't get me started on that!

I'm right there with you. I enjoy sci-fi, but I've never been to a convention. My husband and I are the rare sort of people who like both Star Trek and Star Wars.
