Out of the Blue

Following the power cutting on and off with the recent storms, I decided it was finally time to replace my UPS, as its battery had reached the point where my machine would go to sleep after even slight power dips. I found a big 1500VA unit at Best Buy for $139, and while it turned out it was mismarked, they agreed to charge me that instead of the proper $209 since it was their mistake. Nice, right? We then stopped on our way home at Marshalls to see what sort of bargains they had there and I found a Le Creuset crock for holding spoons and such for all of $12.99, but the blue one I wanted had no price tag. I told them the price up front, but they insisted on a price check, and ended up charging me the $7.99 listed on a cheaper crock. So it seems yesterday I was surrounded by some sort of magic forty-something percent discount field... Too bad I wasn't in a position to buy some resalable commodity and profit wildly from this.

Can't stand Bobby Flay, or any of the Food Network chefs (now that Alton Brown is gone).

I don't think he's gone, they just ended production of Good Eats, which I will miss terribly, but since it was a reference series rather than a weekly recipe show, I can understand the decision to end it rather than starting to re-hash old topics or drift into more and more obscurity.

I do hope they now find something to do with him on that network that's better than just being a game show host.

Love the Guy Fieri review. The guy always seemed to drip douchebag. I love to watch cooking shows but most TV chefs rub me the wrong way. Can't stand Bobby Flay, or any of the Food Network chefs (now that Alton Brown is gone). But I do love many of the PBS chefs: Pepin, Kimball, Julia of course.

That article about the Dude in the Coma is some seriously bad journalistic writing. I dont think Ive seen a Science article that bad in a looooong time. There is virtually no information there about HOW they actually communicated with this Dude let alone TRANSLATED his thoughts into "Im Not in Pain". For all we know he is screaming inside his skull....
