My January Stockpile

Here are random things to post that don’t deserve their own post:

A few weeks ago I wrote about the new In-Ear Headphones from Apple. Since then, we’ve also bought a pair for Candace because they are really great. But a couple more observations:

  • The headphones themselves are made from a totally different kind of material than what came with your iPod or iPhone. They feel like a thicker rubber. The incredible side benefit of this is that you can put them in your pocket or bag and they won’t get in knots. (If you have the current headphones, you know what a pain that is to have happen.
  • I think these headphones may be too good. I’ve made a rule for myself on what music I can listen to while in my my data center. I’m not allowed to listen to live albums from Dave Matthews or Dashboard Confessional cover songs. The reason is because the headphones block out all other noise so well that I get totally lost in the music. By the time Dashboard’s Overkill gets to the 2 minute 30 second mark, I’m pounding air drums like I’m being attacked by killer ants. Of course, the problem with this is that I have a webcam here in my cage accessible by all my customers.

Salesman regret coming to my house. I’ll usually let them give me their door approach. If I’m interested, I’ll talk further. If I’m not, then I’ll usually help critique their door approach. I suppose this habit comes from all the training given in the mission field. By the time I’m done, they wonder why they ever knocked on my door.

Next week I get to go see Merle Haggard.I’m going with my dad and a friend. This will let me cross one more artist off my list of People I Want to See in Concert.

We are two weeks from our next baby coming. I’ll have some more thoughts on this soon, but I am getting quite excited for another little pal to play with me and Cole.
