You Take Yourself Seriously

You see yourself as a thoughtful and introspective person. You are very intelligent.

You think other people see you as kind, gentle, and cooperative. You try to be helpful.

You want to see yourself as independent and free wheeling. You’d like to do your own thing more often.

You identify as a compassionate and accepting person. You pride yourself on being forgiving.

Who Lives Longer?

The perpetual question is finally answered. Who lives longer, men or women?

A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

So, there you have it!

*****

Ha!  So now we know why women live longer than men!  Winking smile

Have a great weekend!

In Memorial

I didn’t even know it was scheduled.  I was consumed with preparations for my wedding that upcoming weekend and hadn’t kept up with the news in weeks.  My boss blurted out, “The Challenger exploded!” when I came back from my lunch break.  Like an idiot, and an eloquent one at that, I responded, “Huh?”

“The Challenger!  The space shuttle with the teacher!  It exploded!”

The light dawned then.  Oh boy, did it ever.

We didn’t have a television at our little workplace, but when I got home and turned it on, the video was splashed everywhere, on all the networks, played over and over and over again.  The image of the explosion was all over the newspaper and magazines, everywhere you turned for the next weeks, it seemed like that’s all there was to see in the media.  It was horrible.  I could not imagine being a loved one of one of the crew members who’d died, and having to live with that imagery constantly on display in the aftermath of the disaster.  The whole event still brings tears to my eye, even today, exactly 30 years later.  That vivid picture, that awful scene of the Y-smoke is burned into the minds of many, myself included. 

It is a Day of Remembrance for NASA.  Many astronauts have been lost during this week over the years.  It’s a very good week for launching missions. 

My thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of those lost.

hAPPy Monday

A reminder!  In case you didn’t get around to it during the holidays and all, because, you know, holidays.  This is your last week to make sure that you keep the free storage you have on your hotmail and/or outlook email accounts.  Microsoft is reducing the amount of free storage it’s allotting to its free accounts at the end of the month, from 15GB down to 5GB, and it’s also eliminating the free 15GB camera roll bonus many users signed up for some time ago. 

But for users who want to keep that storage, they are offering a “loyalty link” so your current level of storage can be grandfathered in when the new basic level free tiers are enacted next Monday.

“While we are not changing our (new) plans,” the announcement continues, it is taking another crack at clarifying the changes and making one new offer that will grandfather in some of the old limits for existing OneDrive users.

Here are the details:

  • For OneDrive customers who currently have a 15 GB free storage allotment and a 15 GB camera roll bonus, Microsoft is offering to preserve those features, but only for those who opt in using this link, which is valid until January 31, 2016.
  • All OneDrive customers with free accounts who do not opt in to the loyalty offer will see their free storage cut to 5 GB and the camera roll bonus will disappear.

Microsoft apologizes for offending OneDrive fans, but won’t restore unlimited storage | ZDNet

 

So, for those of you who have hotmail or outlook email accounts, and want to keep the current level of free storage you’re enjoying, click this link!  OneDrive Bonus Loyalty Link  Before Sunday!  Otherwise, it’ll be back down to a measly old 5GB of storage.

Deep Down, Who Are You?

Okay, that’s true.  I mean, that I like to write poetry and use words to express myself.  I won’t say I’m eloquent though, rofl, my husband says my poetry is “Hallmark-y” and he’s totally right.

You Are a Poet

You are sensitive and expressive. You feel very deeply, and the smallest things in this world can move you.
You may feel misunderstood by the world at times, so you make sure to understand yourself well at least. You are very reflective.

You are a wordsmith, and you know how to get your thoughts out on paper. You are very eloquent and even witty.
For you, the written word is very cathartic. You always feel better after writing or even just reading a bit.

Die Heretic Scum!

I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a young man standing on the edge, about to jump off. So I ran over and said “Stop! Don’t do it!”

“Why shouldn’t I?” he said.

“Well, there’s so much to live for!”

“Like what?”

“Well… are you religious?”

He said yes.

I said, “Me too! Are you Christian or Buddhist?”

“Christian.”

“Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant ?

“Protestant.”

“Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?”

“Baptist” “Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?”

“Baptist Church of God!”

“Me too! Are you original Baptist Church of God, or are you reformed Baptist Church of God?”

“Reformed Baptist Church of God!”

“Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?”

He said, “Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!”

I said, “Die, heretic scum”, and pushed him off.

Another oldie but goodie.  It makes me laugh as it shows off how we all too often get hung up on the little details.  Not that I’m guilty of that myself or anything.  Winking smile

Have an awesome weekend!
