Her guess for the mystery man opposite Heather? Mark.

* NERD ALERT *
And got this from Babbling About Books and More‘s blog post-
Nerd Alert has issued a fun challenge!
"Unpopular opinions: we can haz them. Sometimes you stand alone in loving a super niche-y run of a popular comic book series. Sometimes you’re the only person on the entire planet to ’ship a certain ’ship. Sometimes you simply Do Not Get a movie the rest of your geeky brethren is falling all over themselves about. And because a lot of fandom is about sharing loves and hates and communing with your fellow geeks, this can feel awfully lonely.That’s why we decided to challenge a bunch of nerdbloggers to spill their darkest secrets, their True Geek Confessions, for all the internet to see. Perhaps if we all confess together…well, we’ll feel just a little bit better."
And so here I admit my True Geek Confession:
Okay, I've got a lot of geeky things I could confess to, but let me tell you about my magazine collection...
The first ten years of Starlog and Fangoria magazines. Sealed in plastic. Kept hidden from the light. Most gingerly examined once before secluded in a special box.
To what ends? I don't know! A couple used to be worth several hundreds. Then along came a little thing called ebay...
Yup. I was a sci-fi and horror geek!
