It's official. I'm stupid

I'm sitting here at work, hating my headphones, and fuming from the fact that Apple (grrr) won't sell me a set of the headphones that came with the iPod without also selling me the remote, which I already own, since I bought my iPod back in the day when it came with. Anyway, I start thinking about how stupidly my replacement headphones are designed, with the cord that runs to the player connected to the left earphone, leaving this short cord running from the left to the right headphone that pisses me off, because it's always tickling my chin.

Then I realized that the cord is supposed to go BEHIND my head! Yeah, I've been wearing these headphones with this annoying ass cord for over four months, and I just realized it.

I am the poster child for the Midvale School for the Gifted (you all know the cartoon).

I made the icon Monette, because, while I was fuming, I noticed that someone's been eating my porridge chewing the cord to my headphones. I wonder if the radioshack extended warranty covers that.

Oh, it is on.

I'm pissed at apple because they announced the Nano Lanyard Earphones weeks ago and they're still weeks from shipping. There are no accessories yet and those default ear buds can go choke on a dick.

can they choke on my dick? i.e. can I buy them off you when you get your lanyard phones?

I suppose so ... assuming the lanyards ever get here and I like them. I don't see me keeping the buds; they hurt my earholes. We'll call them your belated birthday present. PS: Wicked started in Dallas a few days after I left ... which means I'm back to keeping an eye on Chicago -- *nudge*nudge*

All this time you've been wearing a little white cord bib. I'm glad the bulb finally went on.

adding insult to injury, I started to tell the story to my coworker tonight, and she interrupted me a few seconds in with "why don't you just put it behind your head?" sigh.

I don't know the cartoon...
but it takes me years to figure some things out.

Like the little dial on the bottom of my digital camera-the one I'd had for five years? I didn't notice that until a month before the thing up and quit working.

Glad to know I'm not the only "gifted" person in my circle of LJ friends.

Re: I don't know the cartoon...
the cartoon is hilarious. It shows a kid leaning against a door with all his might, trying to open it, but the door has a very large sign on it "pull". The caption lets you know that the building is the Midvale School for the Gifted.

Ah. I think that was a Matt Groening. He lived in my neighborhood in Seattle for a time.
