Some pretty nifty Halo Pins I picked up at the Microsoft Company Store in Redmond in 2011. I'm ready to join the UNSC!
My first pocket watch - a train bought for me from Watchworks in Parmatown Mall around 1990!
Two new MVP pins since the last time I took the photo!
My second (and latest pocket watch). Bought by my mother, given in memory of my grandfathers who both served in the Navy in WWII
Got these while attending Greg's graduation at West Point. Don't wear them really - just have them around for sentimental value!
My Columbia collection. Mostly wear the middle rectangular pin while away from CU. The circular CBS one has also gotten some wear.
Karey picked these up for me while we were in Toledo for my graduation. I also have one that's the official university seal, that I haven't taken out of the package yet!
My first lapel pins! They were lost for 3-4 years in a 2 drawer filing cabinent. I wear the MCSE pin often (usually at psychology events!) and keep the MCP pin as a keepsake. Don't even know if MS gives these out anymore!
My MS MVP Pins from 2008 and 2009. Hopefully if I get re-awarded I'll have a new one for next year, although I'd love a new design! I wear the 2008 one to psychology / CU events.
My Target name badge, complete with circa-2000 "I Can Do That" pin that those of us who had it posted under the "Guest Relations" line. I still like this older style with the actual bullseye pin as opposed to just a screend on bullseye.
On the left is a Super Target name badge ordered for my orientation group incorrectly (I never worked at a Super Target!). On the right is a name badge of Matt McKinney's that I somehow ended up with during Highschool. Tops doesn't exist anymore!
Name badges of Karey's. The golden Wendy's badge has never been worn, however the other two have. Yes, Karey worked at Super Kmart for 2 whole days - literally!
Star Trek Combadge Set. I actually have a bunch of other badges from the movies and other Trek franchises back in Ohio in my Star Trek collectables. The badge on the far left is metal (bought from Home Shopping Network in 1995), the other two are plastic, however they photograph like metal.
The sound buttons. You can still buy the two on the right.
My set of AAA Safety Patrol badges. These were used from the institution of the present AAA logo (with a circle around) to around 2000 when they were replaced by a newer (less badge-like) model. I'm looking now for the older style badges, which I hope to assemble little by little!
Like all good positions, I "bought my way" up to the rank of Captain (I wasn't one in Safety Patrol back at State Road Elementary... but am now that I have eBay!). On the right is my original Safety Patrol membership card from 1994!
A close up on the membership card.
The back of the membership card, with the Patrol Member's Pledge!
Dragnet was a much enjoyed show from my childhood (Thank you Nick at Nite!). When I saw this on sale, I had to pick it up!
Recent Additions - The New Style AAA Safety Patrol Badges. If I were a kid today I'd feel really bummed to get these vs. the old style. The older style were much "cooler"
I worked at Target for 9 months (August 2000 to May 2001) as a cashier and Food Service Supervisor (Back when Level II's existed on the guest services team). Was on friendly terms with the Assets Protection people, but never saw anything like these! Courtesy of eBay, these three badges / wallets are circa 1992.
