New TV, Cabinets, and Noodie Movies

First the most important part. Nudity. I have been on a kick lately of renting movies on iTunes for the 4 hour plane ride back to Arizona (from Atlanta). It has been great and I have seen a few really good movies while successfully killing 2/3 of the flight. Last week however, something bad happened. I rented Watchmen. It is a comic book movie, lots of violence, and oh by the way - quite a bit of nudity. Not only girl - but also guy. Blah.

What is the problem? I was sitting in an isle seat on the plane. Oyy. I didn't want to be THAT guy watching two people get it on while sitting on the plane - all the while pumping my fists in the air screaming "go go go go". So, I did the grown up thing and skipped ahead past the steamy parts. It made it hardly worth the rental.




Second, I got a new TV late last week to replace the old 27" one that I got in college. My brother in law thinks that guys with big TV's must be compensating for small *ahem* "packages". Well my friends, I am officially hung like a little choir boy.


I had bet my wife that the TV box would be as tall as our old TV AND the stand. Guess who won? :)

Bring on football! (or CSI, either way)

Finally, I spent most of last weekend hanging cabinets in the garage. I nearly killed myself off because I did them by myself for the most part. I only asked for help from my wife to help me wedge the wooden tool that I had built to keep them up where I wanted them. The interesting thing came at about 4:00pm on Sunday when I realized that, even though I was drinking a TON of water, I had not peed since 6:00am that morning. Oppsies. Time to take a break and DOWN more water. It probably didn't help that I ran 12 miles that morning. In fact, I ended up so dehydrated that I felt a bit hung over on Monday. Ugg. Either way, they ended up pretty damn awesome if I do say so myself. I think I deserve a few Tim the tool man Taylor man grunts. Urrrg urrg urrg.


Before I started - very daunting.

Lower cabinets in. The easy part was done!

Got them all in - next step, filling the bastards up. Oh, and drinking some beer.

I thought it said noodle movies. Anyway, when I put our kitchen cabinets up many years ago, I used the jacks from both our cars.

Hope you're running well.

Impressive, Mr. Handyman!

Oh, and I've made it a rule to never watch movies on a plane again, ever since I watched "Marley & Me" -- sobbing like a baby makes strangers do weird things.

Every guy wants a BIG flat screen and the cool little "built in" place to put it on the wall.....looks like a great beginning to an entertainment room.

Pretty good job, I think you need to get some high quality tv furniture under that Plasma TV.
