Post-it notes and other musings on life

So...another month without a post. I'm lame, I know.
But, this past week has given me more things about whom I thought, "Hm, that would make a good blog post."
Item 1: White noise
White noise is the background noise that comes from your environment. Birds singing or a radio that's constantly on are examples. My family was eating dinner outside, and our constant gripe is our neighbor's air conditioning unit. It is REALLY noisy and is ALWAYS on. We suspect he either doesn't know that it's noisy and on all the time or knows, but is not in a position to do anything about it. But, after eating for a while, we realized that we had tuned it out. Its noise had become white noise. Everyone adapts.
Item 2:
I'm finishing up work this week and have loved every minute of it. However, a few weeks ago, the project I was working just stopped working. It was going...and then it stopped. We were just like *shrug* let's try again. And then it got worse and worse..."AAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHH!" just about sums up everyone's feelings. But, hopefully we have eliminated all possible variables but one. And, looking back, this process was more educational than just blindly accepting that it works. I had to look up how the process worked and understand it in order to figure out where it went wrong. Sometimes a setback is a lesson in disguise.
Item 3:
I am a regular peruser of I think it's very funny and put up with all the boob and dick jokes because beneath it all...well actually it's just funny. With boob and dick jokes.
Anyway, they have a regular video feature called Hate By Numbers by columnist Gladstone. Normally, I only read the articles and avoid the videos. But, this particular HBN caught my eyes and I have to say made me laugh.

And, watching the entire video all the way through, I must agree with all the criticism.
Additionally, I cannot believe this was included on the same album as "Boom Boom Pow," a song which is completely different from "I Gotta Feeling."
Item 4:
Post-it notes are AWESOME.

Rock on and geek out.
