Not long after we moved into our apartment, Kelly and I began going to the gym semi-regularly. In the last few months, I’ve been going at least three times a week, oftentimes more often (heh). Years of sitting at a desk had taken its toll. I don’t have regular work commitments at the moment, and there’s a gym in our building, so this year I’ve made it my priority to get into shape. Being a geek, this wasn’t so easy.
They are simply the best headphones I’ve ever heard. The end. Well, I wish I could just say that (Maybe I can — It’s my blog after all) But, I think you want to hear more. In a nutshell, the above review is accurate, and sums it all up well. If you want specifics, read on… When searching for a good set of headphones to replace my 10+ year old busted Koss ones, I went with the wisdom of crowds over my ears.
Yellow? Those who know me well know that I’ve disliked yellow things for a long time. When I used to surf I hated seeing yellow surfboards in magazines, flicks, and shops. I hated, and still do hate, yellow drumkits[1. For the record, my drumkit is “Amber Gold“, not yellow.]. And yellow cars? Pfffft. So it came as some surprise to me when Kelly and I were travelling around the south island of New Zealand, that I saw a yellow belt in a boutique accessories store, and felt a little tingle in my nethers.
The first item I’d like to talk about in my series of favourite things, is my Wusthof 8-inch cook’s knife. The most basic necessity for really enjoying yourself in the kitchen is a good knife. This is the prefect knife for any enthusiastic home cook. In fact I’d say it’s perfect for anyone who even just dabbles in the kitchen. There are a few reasons why this ‘thing’ falls into my favourite possessions category. I’ll do my best to explain them.
We should not focus on having the things we want, but wanting the things we have. Really? I’m starting a new series called Things. The purpose of this series is to highlight some of my favourite possessions — physical or material things that make my life a little bit easier, more pleasant, and enjoyable. We’re often told not to get caught up in our material possessions. I’ve decided to bring attention to “the material” because I believe we often don’t appreciate why we love the things we do.
