I had such bad hair back then... That brown jacket's around here somewhere...

This doesn't show off my good side. And I just ate so I was a bit gassy. >:oP

At least all 3 shots highlight Cobo's perm...

I feel old when I think about computers.

First one I used had 5 1\4 inch floppy discs and my monitor only displayed black and white. Of course, things like the Commadore64 were around at the same time, too. I was rigorously trained in basic computer langages from about 7 or so and modern computers are so detached from the reality of whats going through them that theres always a point when I think "I need to bring up the command pro-. Oh".

Yes, I could use Unix and almost literally travel back in time, computer wise.....

..... but then how would I play Farmville? :P

It isn't that bad. I don't own any records. To the best of my knowledge she had never seen any. I do have 8 tracks though. That was a fun explanation.

I was looking for something else and found this ... which is good timing considering what I realised today.

You know you are getting old when ... you realise you've had your tattoo longer than your office trainee has been alive.

*likes post* we so need a like button here.....

I've got a good one:


20 years ago, when I first started working for Coca Cola, one of my co-workers who became a good friend had this cute adorable little baby boy. Last week, I helped train a young man for his new role with the company. That young man was the cute adorable little baby boy of my friend. Never in my life have I ever felt so goddamn old as I did in that moment.
