How Much Did You Pay For Your Countertops??

July 30, 2010

7 Comments

Went to Lowe’s and Home Depot today, to look at prices for countertops. I have been entertaining this delightfully fanciful idea that I might buy solid surfacing countertops if the price is right, OR perhaps get laminate countertops and have them INSTALLED.

Comments Off on Boxes Just Ain’t What They Used to Be

The Hubs works part time at a grocery store. On occasion, I ask him to bring home boxes. We are undergoing renovation on the house, so good, thick, boxes are desperately needed. You’d think that The Hubs would be able to grab the choiciest, choosiest, hardiest, bestest boxes, wouldn’t you? Nope. Boxes are LOUSY, people. […]

Would you pay hundreds of dollars for a watch? A really, really cool watch? One that looks like something Dick Tracey wears (actually, even better than what Dick Tracey wears)? One that will beam you up and transmogrify and has a stun gun??!!? Well, these watches don’t beam you up or transmogrify or anything. They […]

More Chuck Norris posters! Wooooo!! (This post is brought to you by your friends at CafePress.com. ) This one made me laugh. “One’s tough, one’s smart,” huh? I wonder which one is which? :rofl: I found a bunch of other t-shirts (especially weird t-shirts) and posters and motivational posters, too. The motivational posters are “OK.” […]

Comments Off on The Problem with PDs

I mentioned earlier that I *finally* got an eye exam, after 6, 7 years. I need new glasses. I have to go through the rigamarole of insurance company’s musical chairs (they will pay for an exam here, eyeglasses there, but not an exam AND eyeglasses anywhere) or pay $250+ cash out-of-pocket. Ouch. I’ve heard so […]

But did you know that the United States is a MAJOR breeding ground for sex slavery? The statistics are disgusting. It is estimated that there are 12.3 million […]
