I was wrong

about the Pats/Colts matchup being the best of the weekend – it was the Steelers/Rams game that was the best, the Pats blew away the Colts. Hype only takes you so far.

Nice little weekend, we went to the Supper Club of India on Friday (and if we hadn’t gotten there at 8, we would have needed reservations). I had (cottage) cheese sticks and tandoori lamb, Jill had samosas and chicken marsala. Very tasty. I watched the late showing of “Battlestar Galactica” – they’ve turned the miniseries into a nice series – too bad it’s on Friday. I’ll try to catch it then.

Obviously football on Saturday, but we ran errands in the early afternoon after I made eggs – finally took the Christmas tree to recycling, I bought “The Village” (no, I havne’t seen it, he’s earned my trust) while Jill exchanged a butter dish, then we stocked up on alcohol at Total Beverage and food at Safeway.

I cooked a ham for dinner Saturday (you can’t beat .29 cents a pound) and Jill made a low carb mac and cheese, then I made a fire while I watched football and Jill mostly read. Today we both slept past 1, then I made egg sandwiches and watched most of the Eagles/Vikings game. We went over to a low key party by the ski club (20s and 30s division) leader. It was easy since he’s a block away. It was fun, but I wanted to see more football. The game was ok, just not the offensive showdown I thought it would be. At least “Simpsons” and “Desperate Housewives” were entertaining. I made burgers while I started another fire – flames are fun.

Just now, I finished my research on DVD recorders, and went with the Toshiba XS52, which I’ve been thinking about, and decided the new breed of Toshiba hardware announced for this year isn’t worth waiting for – I need a better player than my Apex for everyday use, and I need a recorder to start transferring my DV tapes, and it’s the best for my needs.

I don’t mind it being late, but it’s too bad I have to work tomorrow. But since Jill starts her new job as well, I’ll live. And if I can finish my project before Friday, maybe I can take it off instead – big weekend ahead with the entertainment center supposed to arrive on Saturday.

  1. My stereo and DVD player are both 5.1 ready, but neither has the decoder. As the reciever is a nice Onkyo, I’ve been looking at DVD players with decoders.

    I’m finding other things I’d rather spend money on. The real killer DVD feature isn’t being offered yet, DVD players that refuse to honor the ‘NO REMOTE’ code from the disc. I’d pay money not to watch ads before the content I’ve already paid for.

  2. I think having it in the receiver is better, then you can decode multiple inputs (I have 2 DVD players, a satellite box and a TV that all output 5.1).

    Yes, that’d be nice, but 5.1 is awesome when it’s supported. You must visit after the full install this weekend.
