About Me

MeMy name is Tiffany Fodor and I’ve lived in Colorado most of my life.  I’m a Leo, my favorite color is green and I have a bit of a clown phobia.  At work, I’m a software test automation engineer, specializing in Watir frameworks.  The rest of the time I’m usually hanging out with my husband, annoying our cat with cello practice or drinking (sometimes all at once).

When I was little, I loved watching “Saturday Night Live”.  I’m not sure how a 5-year-old gets to stay up that late, but somehow I swung it.  To this day I still love all the actors and characters from those first seasons, but the character that resonated most with me was Roseanne Roseannadanna.  Like me, she had a mane of ugly, crazy, out-of-control hair and she was a huge dork.   Beneath that, though, was a person who still seemed happy, friendly, and somehow, optimistic.

Resolving Roseanne Roseannadanna’s obvious faults with her chipper attitude helped me realize early on that life rarely goes as planned.  I figured I’d be a lot happier if I just expected problems and did my best to deal with them …and laugh if I could.  I wish I could thank Roseanne Rosannadanna for helping shape me into the happy, even-tempered person I am today.

That philosophy has served me well in my career too.  I am, by nature, an optimist, but I’ve learned that sometimes, even getting my laptop to boot may be a problem.  I try to plan for things to go wrong, even though I’m really hoping I’ll get to hit the door at 5:00 every day.  After all, I work in a field based on the premise that nothing is perfect.

It’s like my friend Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say: “It just goes to show ya, it’s always something.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another.”
