I finally got to try out my new Kickstarter bone conducting headphones. My expectations were high and they far exceeded them. The sound was glorious and they were exceedingly comfortable and stable. I can plug up my ears to prevent water getting in and still hear every word of every song. They are so stable, I think I might even go back to listening to books while I swim. I'm just delighted to bits.
I'm also delighted with my Christmas present to me. About six weeks or so ago, I got the worst haircut ever after my regular place had music so loud I left and, in desperation, popped into a Supercuts. I started researching cutting my own hair. It's cheaper. There is no annoying chit chat and I can do it whenever I want. No appointment needed.
I looked at Flowbee and at several other hair cutters. And watched videos and read how tos and reviews. Over and over again. Finally, my hair started sprouting out unevenly and it was clear that something will need to be done soon.
I decided that Flowbee was probably my safest bet. Not the cheapest by any stretch since I do not have a vacuum but, it seemed the most risk free. Except, nope. Amazon's offerings did not include the vacuum and were more expensive than the Flowbee website. BUT when I went to pull the trigger, I was met with 'we're closed til January'. NFW.
I bought a Remington. And I love it. I successfully evened out the two spurts of hair within minutes of opening the box. I later got a little two frisky and there's a kind of weird patch under my left ear but now I know not to get frisky any more. It's very easy to use and really handy. In less time than it takes to brush my teeth, I can pull it out, fire it up, trim a bit and put it away. And it's very compact - even has its own little storage bag.
I may do some more trimming today.
I don't really have anything else planned for today. I may make a ru to Grocery Outlet later for some English Muffins. Or not. We'll see. I have lots of stuff to keep me entertained so I might not have time.
