Your Result: Science/Math Nerd

(Absolute Insane Laughter as you pour toxic chemicals into a foaming tub of death!)

Well, maybe you aren’t this extreme, but you’re in league with the crazy scientists/mathmeticians of today. Very few people have the talent of math and science is something takes a lot of brains as well. Thank whosever God you worship, or don’t worship, so thank no deity whatsoever in your case, for you people! Most of us would have died off without your help.

Sweetie tagged me for this…

INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.

  1. bee-spot
  2. I was told there would be bacon
  3. urbanwanderlust: roving observations of a city girl
  4. Di Has Stories….
  5. My Silly Life

Now… select five people to tag:
Err…not going to tag specific people – if you feel like doing this, just let us know in the comments (or with a trackback).

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Summer, 1997: This was my second summer in New Mexico – my first summer I actually spent at home, but this one I decided to stay in NM, working as a grader and taking a couple of classes. I was in a biology class (I think…Mushi, weren’t you in that with me?) and a ceramics class. I showed up for the bio class, but I think I only attended the ceramics class a couple times. As I recall, it was a pretty good summer. Mushi and I would meet for lunch most days at the alumni fountain, and if it had recently been cleaned, we’d wade in it.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

Same damn thing I’m doing now: working part-time as a contractor, working part-time toward my PhD, biking, going to movies, playing video games, scrapbooking.

Five snacks you enjoy:

  1. Chips and hummus
  2. Chocolate, dark, and lots of it!
  3. Raspberries
  4. Starbuck’s chai bar
  5. Flavored chips (especially sour cream and onion)

Five songs you know all the lyrics to:

  1. “Ghost” by Indigo Girls
  2. “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” by The Police
  3. “Defying Gravity” from Wicked
  4. “Everything You Know is Wrong” by Weird Al
  5. “They Dance Alone” by Sting

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

(I’m assuming several million, as one would go way too fast!)

  1. Open a scrapbook store
  2. Pay off the house, car, student loans
  3. Invest
  4. Donate to several charities
  5. Hire a behaviorist for our cats (don’t ask)

Five bad habits:

  1. Swearing
  2. Clutter, clutter, clutter
  3. No taking care of medical problems that aren’t life-threatening (4-year headache, anyone?)
  4. Procrastinating
  5. No answering e-mail or returning phone calls (e-mail is just laziness, phone calls ‘cuz I just hate the phone. Hate it hate it hate it. It’s not you’re fault, and I really want to keep in touch, but I had a friend growing up who would spend all day at school with me, and then talk on the phone for *hours* in the evening, and it was impossible to get off the damn phone. Now I just hate the phone.)

Five things you like doing:

  1. Scrapbooking
  2. Spending time with Andrew
  3. Going to the movies
  4. Finding a new museum or exhibit downtown
  5. Sitting out on the deck with Ares

Five things you would never wear again:

  1. Stretch pants
  2. Knickers (gotta love the 80s!)
  3. Werid cobbled-together “self-expression” clothes (you’d’ve had to know me in senior high to know what I’m talking about)
  4. a thong
  5. a mini-skirt

Five favorite toys:

  1. Andrew πŸ™‚
  2. my Cricut
  3. Zoo Tycoon
  4. my iPod
  5. my bike



I’m totally addicted…

Posted by barb on Apr 25, 2007 in Memes, Etc.

Go. Now. Watch an episode or two.

I love Liza. She’s so cute, and I totally want her to find a guy….but then there would be no more 39 Second Single…so I’m torn.

80s Meme

Posted by barb on Dec 12, 2006 in Memes, Etc.

80s Questions:


Did you own a LightBrite? Yes. Technically, it was probably one of my brother’s, and by the time I got around to playing with it, many of the bulbs were gone. But I loved that thing.

Play with a Strawberry Short Cake doll? Yup. It was a gift from one of my aunts. I don’t know how much I played with it, but I loved the smell.

Played with GI-Joe doll? I’m not sure. My brothers certainly had GI Joes, and I probably played with them, but they didn’t leave a big impression.

Had a He-Man or She-Ra toy? No.

Owned a Slinky? Yes! I still love Slinkies! I’m not sure how long they lasted when I was a kid, though, since they always seemed to get tangled when I played with them.

Had a Jem doll? No.

What about a Cabbage Patch Kid? Try three. My neices play with two of them now. The other is dressed up as Captain Picard and lives in my home office.

Owned a Big Wheel? No, but I always wanted one.

Traded Garbage Pail Kids? Yes.

Had a Popple? A who?

Had a Pound Puppy? Yes, they were so cute!


Did you watch the following cartoons?

Thundercat – No

Jem – No

GI Joe – No

Rainbow Brite – No

Care Bears – Yes, I think so

He-Man or She-Ra – No

Fraggle Rock – No, it was on HBO, and we never had the pay-channgels on cable. (Still don’t, in fact.)

Shirt Tales – I don’t think so.

Jabber Jaw – No

Smurfs – Yes. It was the smurfiest!

Transformers – No

Mighty Mouse – No

The Littles – No


Did you watch….

A-Team – No

Charles in Charge – Yes

Full House – No

Dukes of Hazzard – Of course! Those Duke-boys were so dreamy!

Cosby Show – Occasionally, though I never saw the big deal.

Hee-Haw – Once or twice.

Miami Vice – I don’t remember. I remember the characters, and could convince myself that I watched it, but I’m just not sure.

Knight Rider – Yes.

Punky Brewster – Yes, but I didn’t admit it then.

Pee-Wee’s Play House – Yes.

Saved by the Bell – Yes.

Silver Spoons – Hell yes! Ricky Schroder was the dreamiest!

Just the Ten of Us – No

Cheers – Yes.

Dallas – No.

Love Boat – Yes. My Mom loved this show, so I’d watch with her.

Incredible Hulk – Yes.

Styles of the 80s

Did you have big bangs? I tried.

A mullet? No.

Like Michael Jackson’s music? Yes.

Know the Golden Girls theme song? Probably.

Wear Kangaroo sneakers? Yes. Though the tiny pockets weren’t really good for anything more than a quarter or a neatly folded dollar.

Own a pair of Guess Jeans? No.

Like Ocean Pacific clothes? No.

Wear Jordache jeans? No, but I had a pair of glasses frames that were Jordache branded.

Own anything LA Gear? No.

Watch MTV a lot? No. We weren’t allowed to watch MTV – my parents believed that it was evil.

Have a pair of high tops? Yes.

Have a Trapper Keeper? Yes.

Own a Swatch watch? Yes.

Did you love the 80s? I have a love-hate relationship with the 80s.

Not surprsing…

You Are Dr. Bunsen Honeydew

You take the title “mad scientist” to the extreme -with very scary things coming out of your lab.

And you’ve invented some pretty cool things, from a banana sharpener to a robot politician.

But while you’re busy turning gold into cottage cheese, you need to watch out for poor little Beaker!

“Oh, that’s very naughty, Beaker! Now you eat these paper clips this minute.”
