Tuned In


Grant works alot. And studies even more. In our itty bitty apartment where real walls that create enclosed spaces don't exist, it can only mean one thing: I've been wearing headphones. Alot. This was Grants idea, not mine. Plugged into the back of the TV and connected to my head thru a springy cord, they give Grant the quiet he needs, and me my oh-so-trashy television fix. But we're not talking the stylish and sleek white ipod kind of headphones. No no no. These are the real deal. Big, black, padded, cinnamon buns on my ears like people used to wear circa 1993.

Anyone who knows me, knows that this simply will not do. I've been searching, and think I've found the cure for what ails me. These Swarovski encrusted headphones designed by celebrity DJ Donna D'Cruz may be just the thing. Now I can hear "Ladies, Andy...this is the final rose of the evening..." in shimmering surround sound style.

this made me laugh outloud! we're in the same situation in our apartment, wearing head phones is hilarious but ingenious. maybe we should get smart and have our hubbys wear earplugs?

Now THOSE are the epitome of fabulous. I hope you get them someday.

I'm so happy to hear this. I thought I was the only one wearing gigantic padded head phones while I watch TV, so my husband can study in peace.
Hopefully we won't hear Andy setting up one more 'obstacle course' for the girls to compete in.

I think I can safely say that jamie is the only person in my life who would find these!

I'm also glad to know someone else still watches the Bachelor once in a while...
