The Girl has a death wish. We bought her an mp3 player for her birthday. Today, she was practicing gymnastics in the living room...with the headphones on! We caught her wearing it to sleep once too! She has speakers...*sigh* She's on her way to being a Darwin candidate!
I have a pedometer. Does anyone know if those things are even remotely close to anything resembling reality? Sometimes I think so, but other times...not so much. I went walking again yesterday and added another loop to my walk. According to the pedometer, I took 3605 steps, which translated to 1.7 miles. That does not sound unreasonable...in fact, it means my estimated 1.5 - 2 mi walk was almost exactly 1.5 mi, and I'm OK with that. Is it supposed to be worn on the hip or on the shoe?
On my walk, the snow was melting off the trees. It was so pretty! The ground was definitely still slick in places, but overall, the walk was quite pleasant. Of course, that might have been due to the fact that I had neither The Dog nor the children!
A pet peeve of mine is headphones for mp3 players and iPods. They don't fit in my ears. Maybe I'm a spaz, but I cannot make them stay in my ears for more than a few seconds. It's a good thing it has been cold because I would not be able to listen to my iPod if I was not wearing ear warmers!
Blog music is funny. I have music here (obviously), but it is music that *I* like...not necessarily music YOU like. Somedays, if I have work to do, I will open a browser and pull up my blog just so I have music. (I'm a dork.) When I go to other blogs, the first thing I do is find their music and, usually, turn it off.
What's your opinion of bloggy music? What is one of your pet peeves? What was your most "Darwin" moment?
