What I do... Program out the admin and flash sites for BluDomain
The hardest part about my job... trying to make sites have more functionality and features then the last, of course the long hours.
3 things you'll find on my desk... swiss army 34-oz water bottle, Joe Sakic booble head (from the Avalanche hockey team), Zen Rock Garden Fountain (everyone needs to feel relaxed once in a while)
If not a genius flash programmer I would have been an.. artist or sky-dive instructor
A website I google daily... www.shutterfly.com it's been months and I'm still putting together books of photos from my Aussie trip.
If I'm outdoors you'll find me.. at the off-leash dog park with Rico and Jasmine (my big and lovable dogs)
Something I need... an air-conditioner in my house.. I feel like a live in a sauna.
A personal flaw of mine.. bad judge of time so I constantly have a growing list of errands and tasks that I think I can finish in no time, some things on my list have been waiting for over a year now
When I have time to myself I love to... watch a chick-flick or clean the house (it gets annoying seeing how messy I can leave things when I'm in a hurry)
I can't live without.. my husband and my dogs, they make life fun
Something that annoys me.. when people don't say thank you (or at least acknowledge) when you hold the door open for them.
What you won't find me doing.. attending an opera
If I could have dinner with anyone in the world it would be... Bill Gates, I would love to hear what he thinks of how computers have changed the world.
Where I buy my shoes.. Payless (not really a shoe girl)
A beauty product I swear by.. pantene pro-v hair products.
I'm unnaturally obsessed with.. clothes from www.fashionbug.com they're the only ones I could find that sell stylish flattering clothes in my sizes.. i just love them!

** Did you know that if you go barefoot you might get a splinter? Well if you're like me I never seem to know how to get it out without performing minor surgery on my foot. Tip #1: If it is small use Scotch or duct tape. Place it over the splinter and quickly pull. Tip #2 if it's deep, use a clean needle. Numb the area with an over-the-counter anesthetic spray. Remember not to stick that needle in more then a few millimeters. Use tweezers to pull it free.
