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…
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?
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.
