In Topic: Reasons To Be Cheerful

Don't wish to sound like a kiss-up, but Wilf's Pink Pig is particularly charming today. The mailman complained about my New Zealand Tea forcing him to back up to deliver my mail, so I had to go prune it in 90 degree sunshine and got covered with dust and ash. How pleasant to come back inside and voyeuresquely enjoy Paris in the Spring.

In Topic: have to replace all my piece o crap appliances

20 April 2009 - 08:08 PM

What is the legal requirement of you buying the appliances? Will you or your slumlord own them? Could you take them with you if you wished to? This would make a difference to me between what I could live with and what I would choose. For dishwasher, go with the new really quiet ones. They are so amazingly quiet. I have always like GE for low cost non-restaurant quality appliances but now that they've supposedly lost interest in everything but hedge funds and closed the USA factories for Made in China ones, it's changing. The last review in Consumer Reports for dishwasers appears to be August 08, ranges Aug 08 & Dec 08, and refrigerators Aug 08 and Jan 09.

True annoyance: it's supposed to be 94-97 today and for several days along the left coast. Someone should send over some ice to Squeat and The Doctor.

Not for teabaggers or ex-army personnel then, right?

In Topic: Input Sought on Rao's Reservation

It's just a private social club, isn't it? You go there for the camaraderie with friends. If you don't get invited by a friend, you don't belong there. Not for name-droppers or wannabees. There are ethnic bars/restaurants like this in lots of neighborhoods. You need to be a regular participant and contributor. The difficulty in getting a reservation depends on who YOU are to THEM. Just MHO.
