Greetings, all. I played hookey from work yesterday to take a mental health day but told them I was getting a bad sinus headache.
And that prophesy came true; when I went to get my hair cut in the early afternoon I had such a sinus headache I could hardly see. I did need the day off, I had a lot on my mind (beside snot), and I will only say that if you want to see before & after photos of my bathroom remodel be prepared to see them at 1.2 megapixel quality rather than clearly. (Whole lotta stupidity I don't care to discuss involved, none of which was my doing.) Over the weekend we procured a new vanity countertop with built-in basin and a very unique medicine cabinet, both from this little place called the Building Materials Outlet
for 1/2 - 1/3 of the price of the home improvement warehouses. Hurray Outlet! We're still trying to figure out the tile situation but I think we may have come up with a winner for the majority of the floor (our intention is to throw some alternate color tiles in for accent): this greyish-teal 3"-square stuff that's on clearance at Ceramic Tile Center
. The fun begins on the 19th of August but I think we will want to start ripping the molding and stuff off the walls sooner. Or I do anyway.
I'm getting a kick out of these Red Stripe beer
ads that show up during sporting events (mostly on ESPN)... an odd scene comes up
, like the freaky podiatrist or the guy using a Flowbee-like device on his head, and then the Ambassador (at left) shows up to say "Boo Creepy Foot Doctor -- Hurray Beer!" or "Boo Vacuum Cleaner Attachment Haircuts -- Hurray Beer!" I have not seen the "Boo Large Headed Friend" ad with the stretched-out sweater yet. I love funny ads for products I don't use.
