These Earbuds are Junk

Published January 24, 2010 - 2 Comments

Why do they even bother to package earbuds with iPods?  It feels like I’m shoving hand-carved marbles in my ears.  Sure, they sound decent enough, but they don’t fit very well.  I’m not sure what it means when the pain dies down.  Are they re-shaping my ears, or am I just going numb?

I decided to take a break from my impromptu vacation, and make an appearance at work.  It’s Sunday, and I enjoy the additional premium, although not as much as I enjoy sleeping in.  I’m sure that God will understand.

I thought that you didn’t believe in God?

I don’t.  Except when something bad happens to me.  I like to think of my God as a vengeful son of a bitch…

Oh.

So here I am, getting caught up on emails, and wondering why I didn’t try to squeeze out an extra day from all of this back-vacation stuff.  Part of me wishes that I could have used it during better (warmer!) weather… the other part is just happy not to have to get up at 5:15am for a few days. 

But what have I managed to accomplish on my days off?

Nothing.

Zip.

Nadda.

Diddly squat.

Well, I bought a new TV.. and iPod..  so that’s SOMETHING, I suppose.  I’ve run a few errands that I might not otherwise have been able to do.  I’m still counting down the days until that lovely procedure that promises to be a memorable event.  I’ve slept in.  I’ve taken a few extra naps.  I’m practicing hibernating for next winter. 

All in all, it’s been a fairly unproductive vacation, but I’m not complaining.  I get to stay inside and send happy thoughts to my team as they trudge through the snow to get into work.
