Woo hoo! I am a security Risk!

A post I entered earlier got flagged by a friend’s work internet filter.

I have been blocked! How awesome is that.

He gets this when he tries to surf to this site:

How awesome is that!

Making my job bearable – The Bose headphones

A while back I commented on the disappointment I experienced with my Bose QuietComfort 2’s broke (plastic fatigue) and the AWESOME support that got me a new set of better headphones for << 1/2 price.

I work in a cubicle farm. My cube is about 10′ from my boss, who is also in a cube, and I am up against an engineer’s cube who like to hum. Fortunately the Bose headphones are a godsend. Add in Spotify, and I have kick ass jams to keep my day rolling.

The one thing I like about my new headphones is that the battery (single AAA) lasts about twice as long as in my original QuietComfort 2’s. Not only that, I get about 12 hours when it starts flashing at me that it is getting low, and I can tell when the sound becomes distorted enough to hear, I have to change the battery.

Win – Win – Win.

Fitness Update – Long Absense

Early in August, I had my 30th high school reunion. It was a blast, but I made a decision to not worry about my calories that week.

I came back to a foot that bugged me and kept me from any serious exercise. I was careful about what I ate, but I didn’t track it meticulously. Some splurges, some good days, some less good.

I have been dreading the scale, but this morning I stepped on it in preparation for “getting back in the groove” and was pleasantly surprised that I weigh the same as I did before the reunion trip. Woo hoo, I didn’t backslide too much.

Now to get back on the plan. 20#’s to go.
