Ridiculously Silly - My Morning Work Ritual

I wonder...
Is it just me? Has anyone else ever been this silly?

Sometimes when I get so swamped at work...(excuse)
Hell, even if I wasn't so busy at work, I do this ridiculously silly thing.

I plug my earphones on...without even playing any music on my computer.
Sometimes, the earphones aren't even connected to the computer!!!

I know that some people might put on earphones to give the illusion of listening to music at work, while what they were really listening were...other's conversations.

I can't say that I haven't done that...but these days, that wasn't my intention.
It's pure stupidity.

After booting up my laptop at work, I'd automatically reach for the earphones, put em on and started my morning ritual:
- Quickly read the headlines of my free morning paper while having my breakfast + coffee
- Open office email
- Open official instant messaging system
- Open non official instant messaging system
- Open gmail
- Open flickr
- Open google reader
- Open BoF related blogs
- Open Windows Media Player/imeem to listen to current favorite songs
...start working and multitask the heck outta the day.

Most of the times, I'd forget to open windows media player/imeem...and kept going...earphones on, without music...and would only realize it around lunch time, when my ears get a bit unfruitfully sore.

Somebody...please tell me that you've experienced this too T_T...
