Boo Hoo - No Top Chef Tonite

One of the frustrating things about traveling so much is that you can never get into any kind of pattern. For example it is virtually impossible to really follow any TV series. I'm either at someone's house and subject to there preferences or I'm in a hotel and subject to whether they have the channel or not or I'm subject to my schedule which may mean various dinners, flights and other late night encumbrances. So I find that the hotel I'm in tonight doesn't carry Bravo so I won't get to see the next Top Chef and based on my schedule will probably be missing many more of them. And yes if I had Tivo or something like it I could record them but that would be a moot point since when I'm home I don't really have time to watch all that much anyway.

Word from Wife is that the counter top people screwed up and miss measured and she's fighting with them over the corrections (they clearly were the ones who made the error). This is very frustrating since I elected to go with a former client out of loyalty to them and my contractor (rightfully) is saying "you chose them, you deal with them". Needless to say Wife is none to happy.

However, when they get done it will be attractive. Here are some pictures that she sent me prior to them being taken out for the corrections.

Sorry to hear about the counter mess. I hope it's soon resolved.

Oooo. There is no way to win in the rehab business apparently. In top chef news, Scylla Stephanie was ALMOST emilinated due to a crab salad that was dressed too far in advance and soggy chips. However, she also made a banana bread that saved her. The other Chicago entrant got the boot. (ill-advised pre-made olive belinis)

I don't know about you stef, but I found this episode a little weak. If you were going to miss one, this wasn't a bad one to miss. There is actually cheap, cheap technology (without subscription fees) that will beam any show from your home tv to your laptop. It's called SlingBox. I hear it's awesome and it's like $150. If I traveled at all, I would definitely have it.

Oh, are you changing the back splash on the counter or is it just getting painted or what? Looks like it's torn up, which makes sense if you're replacing it.

I like the SlingBox idea Lakeview but as with the GPS it's more stuff, more weight, more electronics to charge - and you know how much shit I carry around already.

Yes, we are going to have the back splash redone - it's going to be a tile desgin.

Good news! Using the Slingbox only involves software on your computer. The hardware is connected to your TV at home. No added weight for trips!
