In other news, I'm finally seriously pursuing a relationship for the first time in my life since I finally have some stability in my career, and I can use all the dating advice I can get.

A buddy of mine is a "stereo maven", so I asked him about some new speakers when I wanted to upgrade.  He gave me sound advice.  Ha.  Monitor Audios.  They work for me.

I forget all of what he has at home but he told me he spent over $2000 on speaker cables.  And when he added some more speakers, he spent more than that again he said.  I used to run lamp cord electrical back in the day, I've modernized since then with some decent connections but not crazy cables.

I'm still "amused" how much an upgrade sound system in a CAR can be in new cars.  You can easily see an extra $1500 on the sticker for some kind of upgrade, in a car, which makes noise.

I was musing about how much I've changed over the years, I think one of the biggest changes has been to quit worrying about what others think (beyond the bounds of being decent to people).  When I was younger, I would stress over this, usually subliminally.  Some of it was the job of course where early in your career you need to worry about what your bosses think.  And the odd thing is I think I get along with more people on a personal level now than I did when I would worry about how to get along with people.

The facade is not genuine, and few people can pull it off without seeming to be fake.

We call them "politicians".
This is totally true.  When you are young, you spend so much energy on trying to be what other people want you to be, which includes potential mates.

Yup, and then people by and large think you are "colorful" and start liking you.

As an electrical engineer  I can tell you with certainty that those high priced speaker wires are bullshit.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm certainly not going to waste my time with the wrong woman. I've met enough people who've been in bad relationships and marriages.

Don't flaunt your new found wealth right off the bat. You don't want her to like you for the wrong reasons. Let it be a surprise if it works out.

Odd facts:

1.  The two primary workers on our kitchen were born in Africa.
2.  The countertop company is run by folks born in Africa.
3.  The fellow who templated today is born in Africa.

The main guy is still up there drilling and hammering and sawing at something.  Should I give him a tip?  He's doing a very conscientious job.

Wouldn't it be easier to just buy a condo in Africa instead of making all of those people come to Atlanta?
