Best purchase ever

I had stopped listening to my iPod. I had it cranked up so loudly on the subway that I felt like I was destroying my hearing, but I couldn't hear the music well anyhow. Last week I made a snap purchase in a store and bought noise cancelling headphones. Now I can listen to my music at a low volume, even when walking near traffic or while sitting on the subway. This is one of the best investments I've ever made.

Just before I paid for the headphones, I made another complete snap purchase at the store and bought a Macbook [or whatever it's called]. I don't have it connected to the Internet and have figured out absolutely none of the programs [or even cared to try so far]. Yet it has already served its purpose: the porn I bought last March and which wouldn't play on my DVD player due it being set for Europe, plays just fine on my new laptop.

What a brilliant reason to buy!

The noise-cancelling headphones sound like a good purchase, too.

I thought I was going deaf until I bought different ear buds. Turns out, the iPod buds are duds.

PORN?! (blushes)

You are a goddamn rock star.

(Even if you did buy a Mac, the pr0n cancels that out).

I've thought about getting those headphones, but worry about what outside sounds I'm NOT hearing (that bus barrelling down on me as I flirt with the homeless guy next to me)...

The closest I ever come to making a snap purchase is deciding between the hot dog or the burrito while standing in line to pay for gas at the service station. I'm glad your purchases are working out well. I've been thinking about getting a Mac myself!

Impulse buys are no-nos in my book. I'm curious about the headphones though.

IDV: Yes, you have SP, I have a DVD. Sigh.

Rox: I'm all over good earphones! I'm with you about the iPod buds.

Stewie: I was embarrassed to be buying a Mac, but it's soooo cute.

Brice: But I hear more in a way because my music is way quieter. Do the homeless guys flirt back?

Eros: Always the burrito.

Torn: Best investment ever. You won't regret it, and at our age, you need to protect your hearing.
