Decent hash last night, I even played Hash Cash and ran circle in Sanitary’s absence.

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 211.2 pounds (+2.4 from last week’s weigh-in); not surprising given how much food I crammed into my mouth yesterday.

  1. Dare I say that there was a touch of cool air last night and this morning?

  2. Steve says:

    Yes there was!! I almost got in the hot tub!!

    You know, if you don’t ever ride your mountain bike, the chain will get a permanent kink in the chain where it’s sitting on the derailleur pulley? I decided my MTB needed some love last night and had to break out the chain tool to get it up to snuff. And the tires actually held air, at least for a while.

    A lot of walking on my run last night, but at least I did it.


    • I wonder if the same is true for a road bike. 🙄

      • Steve says:

        I would say it does. There might have been another problem, as the link wasn’t just “rusted” in place but actually tight. Now that I think about it, the bike may have fallen over or have been in a less than desirable position and could have gotten stepped on. Shame on me.

    This morning we woke up to a bunch of water on the kitchen floor, I guess the dishwasher just decided it wanted to not work right last night. I get to hand wash dished tonight. Good thing we’ve already been shopping for dishwashers – we may need to install a new one before we tear up the kitchen.

    • I know they say that dishwashers use less water than hand washing, but I don’t like them. Even if the ITP Estate had fully-functional plumbing the dishwasher would be little more than an expensive dish-drying rack.

      • barb says:

        we are lazy – we run it about once a week.
        I’ve never had a love for handwashing dishes.

      • ITP Lurker says:

        My dishwasher will have to get pried from my cold, dead hands. To wit, my dishwasher has interior lighting. It’s magnificent.

        • barb says:

          interior lighting? like strobe or disco lights?
          what kind do you have? we are leaning towards a Bosch, but we haven’t 100% decided.

          • ITP Lurker says:

            I get teased that it’s disco lighting, but no it’s just LED lights inside. Open the dishwasher after a cycle and everything gleams. It’s a Miele. That’s going to be my appliance brand going forward, I’ve been burned too many times. I hear good things about Bosch as well.

            I’m hugely picky about the layout of a dishwasher. This one has a third tray for silverware that really lets me fit more stuff in.

          • Steve says:

            The house we stayed in in COS had a Bosch. The only odd thing I notices was the controls were on the top edge of the door. As it was flush with the counter, you had to open it to control it, which seemed inconvenient. Looked pretty new, but they might have changed since that was sold.

          • ITP Lurker says:

            Steve, “hide the controls” is very much an aspect of most current dishwashers. That’s yet another strike against a dishwasher for me. As you can guess, my controls are on the front, so that I can see exactly what’s going on.

            Another plus about my dishwasher, the guy that came to install it was dressed in a button down shirt and khakis. I had no idea that class of appliance installer existed.

            I could bend everyone’s ear for a while over the travails I went through regarding dishwashers, but I won’t.

          • barb says:

            we actually ship for Miele – I know those aren’t cheap. I need to look at them, I haven’t really yet. I kind of want the controls on the front, the clean (hidden controls) look means nothing to me. I also don’t really want a handle sticking out, as your kitchen is pretty narrow.
            I wasn’t sure how much we’d use that narrow 3rd row, but I think I want it.
            Talking appliances can go on & on & on.
            dishwasher is fairly easy – its the cook top & oven that have even more options.

          • ITP Lurker says:

            Barb, the third tray is recessed in the middle (and all three trays are adjustable). This means I can put plastic containers that usually flip over and up full of water in the center of the top tray. Plus I can spread my silverware and cooking utensils out up there, freeing up space for more dishes.

            Also, it doesn’t have a big metal piece that heats up, which means I can put plastic anywhere in it without things getting melted or deformed.

    • Stacy Fox says:

      My dishwasher is my hands. 🙂 The old building I live in doesn’t have them.

  4. Bonnie says:

    I usually lose weight at campouts, but I’m up half a pound (above my current “fat weight”—I’ve regained all the weight I recently lost).

  5. Slow, warm amble around Piedmont Park. Almost feels as if we ate entering Spring, and not Fall.
