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.

Glad to hear that you're feeling a bit better. :-)

When they regrout the tub, have them fill it with water before they do it. That way, the tub is weighted down. (I'm pretty sure I saw that one on a home improvement-type show.)

Oh, and the term VCR-fu made me laugh out loud. :-)

I'm thinking of upgrading to a DirecTiVo, and Amber appears to have green-lighted the effort, so we may be able to work something out...Once you've got Tivo, there's no going back.


Don't know if you remember, but I used to cough all the time. I solved it by moving :)

For the caulking: have the guy apply the caulk when the tub is full of water. I suspect the caulk will be much better at compressing than expanding.
