Are you a Trekkie or Trekker?

I've called myself both over the years. I certainly identify with both terms, though I don't speak Klingon. In high school I wore a button on my hooded sweatshirt (long before the term 'hoodie' was coined) that said, "I'm a Trekker, not a Trekkie" but even then I disliked the 'er' term.
Nowadays I simply call myself a Star Trek fan. Others around me call me a Trekkie.
I've been to many conventions, but it was at Comic Con 2009 that I finally met my lifelong idol, Leonard Nimoy, and spoke to him and shook his hand. I then found a quiet spot at the San Diego Convention Center and silently wept tears of joy to myself.
