Of local interest only


I'm going to buy a Bose Sounddock for the gym. I'm telling you this now so as to avoid any problems or confusion later...I am going to buy this sound system and that being the case you will all listen to and enjoy the music that I select. This is not going to be up for discussion. Any time I am in the facility we will be listening to the music that I choose...if you are all happy with that I've got no problem paying for the system myself...if however you want to have any say what so ever then you need to discuss it amongst yourselves prior to me purchasing it. It is as simple as that. Those who contribute to the purchase will have the right to contribute to music selection and that will be enshrined in gym law till death...or I decide otherwise. So you better all make up your minds in a hurry.

P.S: The unit will also be black rather than white as I think that colour better reflects my general mood and demeanour.

Sounds good. I cannot promise that I'll necessarily enjoy all the music that you select but I'll not moan or complain about it. how's that?

That sounds to me like your to mean to chip in!

That is all that will be required...although none of the other moaning and complaining that goes on in the gym really bothers me so I can't see it making a big difference either way.

Anonymous,
I am not expecting or looking for anyone to chip in. I'm happy to get it...I obviously spend more time there than anyone and if I have to listen to Spin much longer I may just smash my hand with a weight plate if only so my screams drown out Justin & Madonna.
All I was saying is that people who want to have some or any say in the choice of music can decide for themselves if what they listen to matters to them or not.

Too mean, what you meant to say was too mean. The word too is used when speaking about a classification of quantity. In this instance, you meant it as more than enough i.e. too fat, too old, too much or TOO MEAN.

The word has other uses also (too; meaning as well) but yours is the most common mistake.

This is a perfect example for all those people out there that say my blog is a pile of crap...it is in fact quite the opposite...it's not only interesting and informative but with thanks to HH...it's also educational.

What you meant to write at the start as you were trying to be a smart ass was TO MEAN instead of too mean and then you went on to correct me but thats ok yours is the most common mistake

He actually quoted your mistake before correcting it.

What he did was quote his own words instead of quoting my mistake,as I said easy mistake to make,so if your gonna correct me on something at least make sure you do it right

What musical masterpiece will your athletes have the pleasure of listening to as they pound out their repetitions? Also is the music be loud enough to drown out Will's incoherant ramblings?

Will Heffernan said...

This anonymous guy sure is chatty.

Will Heffernan said...

I also like the fact that they're arguing with themselves...anonymous reminds me a lot of me.

Michael Sullivan,
You realise that I live in Ireland right?

Michael Sullivan said...

Yes, I realize that you live in Ireland.

Just have one of your many, many American friends buy it for you in the US and ship it to you. Should not take more than 6 months or so to get to you. Have you received your new camera yet?

"Oh wait I realise my grammatical errors and apologise you were right HH"

All these anonymous comments are getting confusing..though this is a blog about training so the next time somebody wants to correct me or anybody about their grammer or correct me on pointing out that the person who was trying to be a smart arse wasnt so smart..well go and tell somebody who cares

Im sorry i didnt mean that last comment, im such an idiot. clearly onlyi care about grammar

HH said...

Dear Anonymous,

Given the number of times that you've commented since I corrected your "grammer", I'm assuming that you care. Further to your instructions above:

Grammer is a town in Indiana, USA. It is located in Bartholomew County and has the zip code 47232.

Grammar, however, is what I guess you were trying to say. Grammar, as I'm sure you are aware, is the study of the way the sentences of a language are constructed.

I apologise if I have made an error in my assumption. If you do not in fact care; I've wasted the last few minutes. Oh well.

Cool link to what are some great speaker systems. Having checked out all the systems listed, I found that the Bose SoundDock finishes 2nd on Average User Rating, which can be valued a lot of the time, with a score of 9.0. The system that beats it is the "Chestnut Hill Sound George iPod Speakers" which got an Ave. User Rating of 9.3 and costs $100 more. IMO it doesn't look as cool as the Bose and we can't have Will breaking the bank either!!

Someone find them and tell me where I can get them...the sooner the better...all you guys are better at playing with the interwebs than I am!
