while checking up on my swaps and any current threads.  It sounds like wind or something.  I'm like where is this noise coming from.

Then I realize I still have another window to Julie Garwoods website open and it's the background noise.  I was really starting to freak out trying to find where this sound was coming from.

I tell you, between those male ice skaters and the websites with sounds, we're endlessly entertained.

I always surf with the sound turned off or turned way way down.  I only turn it up if there's something I'm specifically going to listen to.

At work today, I kept hearing a faint beep.  Stuff like that drives me nuts so I spent quite a while listening to computers and a battery backup before throwing my hands up in frustration at figuring it out.  Turns out, someone'd left their purse in the office and their cell phone turned on and it was beeping to indicate there was voicemail.

I checked out her site.  What a slick animated site with sound no less!  The web developers have really outdone themselves.  I'lll wager it wasn't cheap to develop.

I got really annoyed a couple of years ago with a driver who was beeping at me. Only I couldn't see where s/he was. I kept looking. Every few seconds I'd hearing the beeping and look again. No car.

Then I looked down and my thumbs were resting ever so lightly on the horn. (:

Cherry Adair has a great website. I scared the crap out of me at first because there's like machine gun fire on it.

Speaking of beeping, I usually have the sound off on the computer, but one day it was on.  I happened to click on the mail truck in the map that D.C. books have showing the book traveling along its route.  Well, I found out that the truck beeps loudly when you do that.  I almost fell off my chair.
