Videos and Stuff

Man my VCR-fu sucks. I tried to tape Trading Spaces and the Restaurant, and got a Repossesion show and some Law & Order. Not to mention I deleted my programmed taping of Bonzai! and didn't get any Extreme Elimination Challenge.
It's funny becuase I set the VCR to tape Trading Spaces on Sunday and it came up with a Program Overlap message, so I looked at the other program and thought FOX? What was I taping on Sunday on Fox? So I deleted it. Maybe I need a Tivo.

I watched the Magnificient Seven the other day with Jessica, she got a new DVD player and she wanted to test it out. She asked me to help her set it up, but she had already done it by the time I got there. I wanted to watch it with the commentary, but they were talking all over the dialog so we just watched the regular part. I find that especially odd because there isn't that much dialog in the movie, so they had plenty of space to talk in the non-speaking parts.

I'm still on the light diet, but man today I was craving meat. My co-workers went to Goode Co. and had the mesquite burgers and were gushing over them and it made me crave one bad. I settled for a watered down bowl of Dinty Moore Beef Stew for dinner. I had EasyMac for lunch. Kelly Osborne was right, that stuff rocks. I also learned today not to make it in a tupperware bowl because it makes the water bubble over for some odd reason. It doesn't do that when I use a cermaic bowl.

I'm still coughing a bit, but the cough is definately getting better every day. Amazing the AllegraD the doc gave me seems to be helping get rid it. I read that Allegra also helps with asthma so I'm still not sure that's not what I have. I caved during a coughing fit this weekend and ordered some 'miracle' cures for coughing from the herbal guys and snake-oil salesmen of the internet. I've been using some herbal pills for sore throats when I felt one coming on in the past, and those really worked, so I figure what the heck.

My tub needs to be regrouted because the guy didn't use silicon or something that expands, and since the tup sinks a bit when it is full it cracks the caulk. He needs to use something that can expand and has a bit of give. I told the office this today as I got my mail. They are redoing our mailroom so I won't get mail for a few days, and we had to clean out our mailboxes today.

    New Year, same stuff going on. Looking forward to warmer weather, but it was nice around Christmas time here. Everytime I see a snowstorm somewhere…

    I had a good time at the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy symphony concert last night at Jones Hall. Forgot my phone at home so I don't have any…
