Calling For You

It's official - I'm a douche.....and I love it.

Denton got me a bluetooth headset for the home office. You might remember me wearing the headset that Judy from Time-Life would take your order for One Hit Wonders of the '70s.

That headset died a horrible static-y death. I had to resort to using - ughhhh - my hands!

For those short calls, it wasn't a problem, but for three back-to-back hour long phone meetings, it was tedious.

It is a little bulky to go behind the ear, especially wearing glasses. Actually, I can only wear one pair easily. My big bulky Spongebob glasses make it difficult.

However, I'm not tied to the desk. When on a conference call, I can pace the office - and I do. Quite a bit, actually. Oddly enough it keeps me focused on the task at hand. When I sit in front of my monitors, I can get distracted by incoming emails.

The sound is great - incoming and outgoing.  And it pairs-up with two it works with my iPhone and my work Blackberry.

I really didn't think I'd like it, but I am loving it.

...and I promise not to wear it in the grocery store or anything.  No promises about wearing it at the airport.

I think it would be great with your geordi laforge sun glasses.

I've finally learned that whenever I see folks talking to themselves I should check to see if they are wearing a bluetooth thing and are simply being douches. Most of the time they are not. They're just fucking nuts.

Why are they always black? Why not peach or nude or topaz?
