I own too many pairs of expensive headphones, I confess. My favorite are my Sony digital wireless ones for my plasma.
51" Samsung 3D Plasma hooked up with 2 Tivo premier XLs (one hooked to a rooftop OTA antenna, the other an inside OTA antenna, with a lot of content via Tivo Desktop software from my PC), a Roku (for MLB games) and a 3D Blu-ray player.
A kindle DX (for all my Amazon purchased books) and an Ipad for all my epub books (Nook App mocha theme rocks) for my ebooks.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What makes you laugh?
Physical comedy. People who fall in front of me hopefully don't get injured as I am laughing too hard to help them.
What is the thing in life you treasure most?
My kids and husband, my brothers, my books, my blu-rays, all my electronics.
What's the geekiest thing you've ever done?
Hard to say since most everything I do is considered geeky ;)
What do you do to entertain yourself?
Everything I do entertains me at the moment I am doing it.
Action, thrillers and stuff like X-Men and Underworld. Daniel Craig. Fastpitch softball, watching MLB - GO RED SOX! - walking and hiking and reading edgy or quirky romance/romantic suspense books, heh, heh ...
Hey girl! Summer classes are finally OVER. I haven't been watching the Atlanta season. That blonde manly looking one just scares me haha. I wish the OC ladies would come back. They were fun. What have you been up to?
Ok so I've watched the NJ season more and it's kind of grown on me...however I still think the cast is just a mismatch of weird ladies. I mean Danielle is definitely a man or she has just had too much done to her face and not to mention she is a total skank. Then the short hair lady doesn't fit in at all except she is rich and I know she is related to the other girl but still...it's just weird. They are VERY dramatic though. As always! haha

I hate the lumbering, bloated Office Suites like MS and Open with the overloaded menus…"
