Slow poker day

Tuesday, February 19, 2008 1:15 | Filled in poker

Today was primarily dedicated to making remodeling decisions on the house and building a spreadsheet to track just how screwed I am.  The first item we discussed was the appliances for the kitchen and I think we’re $4,000 over budget on that line item.  That does not bode well for the project.  Its kinda frustrating because our designer insists we need to replace the fridge, which is approximately brand new.  Apparently it sticks out from the edge of the counter, which is completely unacceptable.  Although in my informal survey of everyone I know, all refrigerators stick out past the counters. Grrr.

I did manage to play a few hands of poker and won $450 in a small number of hands.  I have 8,700 VPPs for February thus far.  I was up slightly in NL when I got it all-in pre-flop with QQ against AA but flopped my set.

    I feel your pain. This weekend – Victim and I bought a new dishwasher, oven/range, and refridgerator. Along with that, we painted our entire first floor. An expensive weekend, no doubt, as it will likely lead to a new countertop in the kitchen and new carpet throughout the entire house.

    BTW – all refridgerators stick out past the counter. Your designer is just trying to hustle a few more square feet of countertop out of you ;-)

    “counter depth” fridges are the stupidest scam I ever heard of, except that it apparently works. Since they aren’t as deep, they don’t hold as much. Nonetheless, I am apparently willing to pay MORE for the joy of having a smaller fridge. It makes me crazy. I did find a good source for lower cost appliances that sells online and has a good rep. http://www.us-appliance.com is the bomb. I found one other site that sells for less, but has terrible feedback.

    Hold your ground, bud. My first reaction would be to tell the “designer” that I was going to have a fridge that extended past the counter. If (s)he couldn’t handle that fact, then (s)he can leave. Now…

    But then again, that’s likely just a passive-aggressive fantasy.

    You significantly overestimate the importance my opinion carries in the grand scheme of remodeling questions.
