Pretty damn cheap for these now at Argos!! I can’t remember how much I paid but I think it was quite a bit more than these. They’ve since been superseded by the next generation of them, but I will stick with mine for now.
I feel a need to say thank you, Sony, for keeping me sane yesterday. The fucking pikey cunts that built the gate that opens unlawfully onto our property are currently building another fucking shed – evidently the bitch living there is so thick she can’t accept the fact that her house is just too small for her and her fuck knows how many children (since she’s evidently also too thick to be aware of birth control) so she has to fill her small garden almost completely with sheds. Christ just fucking move out and fuck right off you vile fucking bitch.
But anyway, some horrific low rumbling noise that I was never going to get to sleep through was happening yesterday. So Sony noise cancelling ear-phones to the rescue. They didn’t eliminate absolutely all the noise, but squashed it enough to be able to focus on about an hour of my Star Wars NPR drama. I fell asleep to that before my timer switched it off automatically. Woke up a few hours later with a bit of discomfort in my ears, of course thinking “what the fuck is that???” (as you would tend to, when you’ve not yet properly regained consciousness). When I say discomfort, I’m not talking pain, just how you’d feel if you woke up with anything stuffed in your ears. I chose to remove them and the discomfort vanished almost instantly.
Maybe today I will try some meditation music. Cos fuck knows I need it.
