I've been a self-confessed nerd all my life, along with nearly all my friends. So to me the word doesn't really have the negative connotations that most people associate with it. Shes probably not a hard-core gamer nerd, but I can see her being a bit of a fangirl. I can see her being a big fan of romantic things Maybe there's a girly anime she loves. She reads romance manga, plays a little WoW, and inexpensive ocassional puzzle game. Shes definately a Phantom fan, and I seem to recall there was a fanart of her geeking out to Hatsune Miku. She reads tons of sci-Fi and fantasy, and I'm sure she's got notebooks of fanfic hidden away.

Yeah, thats something that doesn't get touched on very much. Shes probably on a very fixed income/state pension so she can't really afford nice things. Something else that makes you really feel for her.
I can definitely see her going crazy on the internet once she gets access.
