Getting back in touch
Sprung is springing

This morning was crisp and clear. I brought my camera to work with me for kicks, and got a few good pictures of things in the park, including this shot of buds on the young maples outside the Perimeter Institute. The weather has been helping as much as possible. Today I was in good spirits, coming in to work, and although I'm overly tired, I'm still doing reasonably well.

On a whim, I went to the Lance Armstrong Foundation to see if they'd sorted out their credit card payment problems, and they had. So yay! I bought some Live Strong bracelets. I have extras if folk are interested. It looks like they're becoming a bit trendy. I don't know how I feel about cancer awareness being trendy, but it is exposure, which is good I guess.

I have these giant headphones at work. The kind that block out a lot of external sound when you're wearing them. The kind that remind you of the seventies. The kind that will keep you warm on a cold day. Anyway, I'm finding more and more that they're of a higher quality than I would have expected originally. When I just want music, but don't want to block out the world, I let them sit around my neck, and just turn up the volume of my mac to full. (The only thing I use it for is for iTunes. No one really feels it's justified to buy me a new machine, and it's a bit sluggish to use for my day to day duties.) But still, the range of sound I get from them is quite good. There's very little distortion, and I get both base and treble fairly clearly.

That's about it. Sorry for the apparent randomness.
