BP Monitor

Since I thought I’d lost this old equipment, Santa gave me a new machine to keep track of my BP. Eh, this old one had turned into a pathological liar anyway, isn’t even worth the trouble of remembering to save in a goodwill pile.

Cut from the Team

leave a comment »

Last year when we went to the Houston Rockets’ game that broke the consecutive wins streak, the team was handing out these Clutch soap dispensers. I kept one around for the occasional squirt of Kahlúa into my coffee. But “occasional” has turned into “rarely” then “never,” and it’s been cluttering up my nightstand long enough. Not in any condition to be worth saving for the yard sale we’ll never have, out to the trash it goes today.

Pocket PC Radio

leave a comment »

pocket pc radio
Used to ride the bus to work, used to like to listen to the radio as much or more than CDs or mp3s. And thought it neat to be able to do so on a Pocket PC, versus just going the far simpler route of getting a more suitable radio.

Don’t ride the bus anymore: the few times I do get into the office these days, the Blue Bug’s radio serves well enough. Don’t use the Pocket PC anymore: did retrieve the ancient Palm, which Jenny never did use all that much, but I rarely use that and this radio card doesn’t work with Palm anyway. Whenever I do ever want the radio on the run these days, my Zen Vision:M even lets me record what I’m listening to, should I want. I’ve long lost the CD that goes with this radio card, so even if the Blue Bug’s trunk heat hasn’t destroyed it, I doubt it would do anyone else any good. So much as I hate throwing anything like this out, it bids farewell to my world.

Only one parting question: how the hell did it manage to sit in my vehicle’s trunk for so long without its headset’s cords tangling any more than this?
