    Small Talk: The Welcome Mat

    @Netfoot I don't post often, but have been reading your posts for many years (back into TWoP days). As someone who has had more than her fair share of surgeries, I am sending you my best good vibes that all goes well and you are feeling well again very soon. Don't do too much, too soon.
  3. I agree, to a point. A bigger master bath is definitely on my list for our next house. We currently have two bathrooms, both are very tiny (9' x 5'). I'd like space for a linen closet in the bathroom, and I'd like two sinks because my hubby is messier than I am. I don't need it to be huge, though! The closet in/near the bathroom thing is something I have wondered about for a while - I don't want all the moisture from a bathroom environment that close to my clothes.
  4. His voice sounded familiar to me but he looked different enough that I didn't know right away. By the end, though, I was pretty sure it was him and the credits confirmed it.
  5. Me this morning: Oh yay, there's a Call the Midwife rerun on while I'm getting ready for work. I'll leave it on in the background.... Twenty-five minutes later, I realize I got sucked into the show, I'm running late, and there's no way I can put on my eye makeup now because I'm weepy (Barbara is dying in this episode - I always liked her, but I love Phyllis and she's so devastated it's killing me!).

    Apparently it was suicide. 😞

    S16.E09: Music City USA

    I'm 53 and listen to the Beatles all the time. I have very diverse musical tastes, but they are my favorite and in heavy rotation. eta: jpgr = john, paul, george, ringo

    Top Chef in the Media

    Saw that this morning, so sad for her. I just got the all clear after stage 3 cancer, so feel this really deeply.
  9. I really loved seeing Kate again! She has always been one of my favorites and I was happy to see her do well overall. That showstopper was amazingly detailed and now I want to try pistachios and black currants together. I love Tamal, too, but was a bit disappointed that he went for rather simple bakes. Candice was just feeling cheeky and added some fun to the tent. I was annoyed at Noel always pronoucning her name Can-deece. Stephen is great at that detail work, and his showstopper did look amazing. There's something about him I've never quite warmed to, though. Can't put my finger on it.

    S16.E02: Bourbon, Barrels and Burgoo

    YES! Thank you, I was trying to figure out who he reminded me of and this is exactly it!

    TGABS in the Media

    Yes! I was so bummed they were on at exactly the same time.
  12. Depending on when this was filmed, Paul could have been going through his divorce. That may explain some of his grumpiness
  13. I had this problem in Japan, but figured out to look for the handicapped stalls which had western toilets. :-)

    S09.E07: Vegan Week

    Yes, this! I didn't understand it, since earlier he had shown himself to be into the science-y side of baking. I thought that would make vegan baking really interesting to him, to figure out what each ingredient brings to the bake and how to get the desired result using other ingredients and methods. Oh well.

    S09.E10: The Final

    YES! So much this. I don't mind at all when they include some savory baked goods, but I make a clear distinction between baking and cooking. I'm a baker - give me flour, sugar, and butter and I'll go to town. I don't like cooking, and don't want to see three varieties of salsas made on my baking show.
