Anyone who knows me, knows that every time I come out to LA, after I stop at In-N-Out, I have to go see the ocean. And just about every time it has been at the Santa Monica Pier.

All (well most) of my toys plugged in to their chargers… L->R: iPod 20gig (it’s a classic, pre-photo, pre-video iPod) with matching iTrip, Yaesu FT-60R 2m/70cm ham radio, Plantronics bluetooth headset. The empty plug is for my Samsung u740 which I used to take the picture. In the background is one of my 7+ year old Sony speakers that came with the computer I took to college. Yes, they’re purple, but they still work very, very well…though…I wouldn’t mind a new pair of speakers.
