Were you a child of the 90’s?

If you are under the age of 13…you should not read this and if you do, you should not repost this. Just because you were born in ’97 doesn’t mean you’re a 90’s kid. It’s not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90’s just wont cut it.

You’re a 90’s kid if:

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green ranger, were meant to be together.

You remember when Super Nintendos and Sega Genisis became popular.

Making those little paper fortune teller things, and then predicting your life with them.

You played and/or collected "Pogs" 🙂

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet, or Nano and brought it everywhere.

You haven’t always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet.

stuff on VCRs.

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off of our walkmen.

When checking out drawing books and that one book about the rainbow fish from the library was THE cool thing to do.

You had slap bracelets!

Way back.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear.

Who would have thought you’d miss the 90’s so much!!!!!

Kick ASS Utility!

FolderShare – File Transfer & Remote File Access – Product Overview
My boss found this today. It’s KICK ASS if you are like me and are neurotic about your workspace, and have to keep it the same across multiple systems. You can sync things like your bookmarks, or random folders or whatever. I am using it to keep my cute little cheat sheets the same across the three computers I work at regularly. It also allows me to share documents with other people, so the boss and I can keep our reports and schedules and such the same if either of us makes a change. LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ms. Dell the Third Is About to Be Born

Dell XPS M1210 Review (pics, specs)
I finally broke down and ordered a new laptop last week. Ms Dell the First has been a good laptop, and I love how small and portable she is. However, when I bought it, I made a very very n00b computer buyer mistake: I went cheap. I bought for current needs without taking into consideration how my needs might change over time. Job responsibilities have changed, I started playing Lineage II, I have started taking more pictures than I used to, and I just do more that requires power than just IRC and a web browser. Somehow a single 2G processor and 512 of ram shared with the video card just wasn’t cutting it anymore. I was working training a n00b last week and realised that doing just my normal work I was running consistently at full processor and ram usage, and just decided that it was time to upgrade.
Ms. Dell the First will be retired with honour. She has been there with me for literally just about everything for the last two years, including my wedding.

Yummy Dinner! Go Here!

I have very little of actual interest to say today. I am just sitting here at work training a n00b. I had a good birthday. I managed to go two and a half days without working – so proud of self. 🙂

Honey and I tried a kick ass restaurant on Friday that I highly recommend. Their website is It’s a fondue joint as you might guess by the name, and their food is delish. It’s definitely a date night thing, as dinner took about two and a half hours. LOVED! GOGOGOGOGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Have Been Crazy Busy

Work has been insanity on the grandest of scales, which isn’t news for me I suppose. I tend to work a bit too much even in the best of times. We put out a new product that has some challenges that we are having to work through. Makes for a lot of headaches, and lots of long hours that have made me a bit too anti computer when I get home from work, so I just haven’t felt like blogging.
I also managed to take a header down Shiloh’s stairs on Thanksgiving day, and in the process, I broke my ankle in like 4 places and dislocated it which tore tendons and ligaments, as well as doing some shiny nerve damage. I had to have surgery on it a couple of weeks later, and spent like two months basically trapped at home because I couldn’t drive. Needless to say, that was not fun. I am mostly back together now. It still hurts to walk and I can’t wear my fins to dive yet, which makes me very sad. :( It is improving though.
Life is sorta calming down and getting back on track, so I should be updating more soon.

My Biblical Personality

ROFL. I found this on a google ad and couldnt resist:

So here is Bible!Dessie:

Your Biblical Personality Style:

Careful & Compliant: As a "C" style, your personality is similar to Biblical heroes such as Luke, Silas, Ruth and Esther. All of these people led by example, having a high standard for excellence and walking in personal integrity. Valuing accuracy and organization, Luke wrote his gospel account accordingly, "It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus" Luke 1:3 Ruth and Esther both showed patience and persistence in doing well and waiting for Divine opportunities rather than forcefully demanding things for themselves; it was all about preparation, planning, and perfect timing.

Interesting enough, many of the "C" style personalities in the Bible were challenged by being put into situations that required great faith. Esther and Ruth both exhibited great faith, an area where they no doubt both grew personally since their natural desire would have been to gain a better understanding before having to make life threatening decisions. Silas had to act in faith when becoming the Apostle Paul’s new travel companion when Paul rejected John Mark because of his non-compliant behavior. Silas proved to be much more compatible with Paul’s high standard of commitment and excellence.

Your Personality Style Description:
A perfectionist, destiny is very willing to expend the effort to achieve high quality results. Because she works so carefully, she tends to be sensitive to criticism. destiny tends to gather a great deal of information before making choices. She believes that if everyone would process information in the same way as she does, a better level of quality would be maintained.

destiny values close, personal relationships, and she will often put the needs and desires of those who are loyal friends ahead of her own needs. She is an even-paced individual who thrives in a peaceful, harmonious environment. destiny will work to avoid conflict and sudden changes in her lifestyle and finds joy in keeping tradition.

Because she cares about how others feel, destiny may feel uncomfortable making decisions that strongly affect others. She typically encourages others to be involved in the decision making process and prefers to work in a team role. Others tend to see destiny as agreeable and humble.

destiny usually avoids being the center of attention. She tends to pick her friends carefully and is usually cautious and not overly "open" to strangers. destiny may sometimes come across as being skeptical of what others tell her they will do, but once a person has proven their reliability, destiny is willing to invest more time and trust in the relationship.
