Audio commentary

The company that I work for doesn't allow workers to have sound cards in our computers, I assume for one of two possible reasons:
  • If we had sound cards we would spend all our time on YouTube
  • If we had sound cards we would keep our speakers on turned up high and would annoy our neighbours

Notwithstanding the fact that there's a TV two cubes over from me and I have had to ask that the volume be shut off on it because they leave it tuned to Detroit PBS or some other irrelevant, asinine program (Detroit traffic comes to mind).

But today I came up with an argument for it.

I like to listen to my MP3 player while I work. And I surf far less when I have headphones on, because then I can't hear management come up behind me. When my battery is dead, I have to surf because there's nothing else to do until it's done charging.

I made another Rachael Ray meal, by the way. I didn't get to eat the leftovers (it was Pasta with sausage and broccoli with Ricotta Surprise from the same "Express Lane Meals") because the man and the boy got to them first.
