Sigh, I want to get a Sabres jersey, but my bank account is looking bleak right now.

Been looking forward to that one for a while. DDL is an insanely good actor.

As I said to my wife earlier, this movie looks like porn for historians (like me). Can't wait!

I like the grittiness of the Craig portrayal. Dalton was just bland and Moore was so camp. Brosnan was fairly human but the plots sucked. I hate the gadgetry, honestly and that started in earnest with the Moore/'70's era movies and has simply never gone away.

Same. It's a fine line between clever spy-esque accouterments and wristwatches that launch rockets.

As soon as the gadgets take center stage over the actor's performance, something has gone wrong.

The Spy Who Loved Me: probably in my top five favorite movies. It makes me want to go to Egypt.

Short work week - huzzah!

My peanut turns ONE on Wednesday and then we are having 50+ people over to the new house on Saturday for her birthday party.

I'm hoping for some decent weather b/c we are setting up the tables and chairs in the garage and under some tents.

Our Nest reports that it ran the heat for two and a half hours yesterday and two hours on Saturday. Here come the heat bills.

Once it gets cold enough out, I'm going to go through the house on an insulation / heat leak mission. That could be interesting.

How cool is that Nest? I was thinking about buying one, although it might be of limited benefit since I don't have AC.

I know mine wasn't on since I had completely shut down the electronic thermostat.

I think it's pretty rad. Clock has it set up on my phone too. I love that we can even adjust the thermostat remotely.

The only downside is now Clock has become a heating and cooling crazy person. He monitors EVERYTHING and it's harder for me to say "Baby, I'm cold" and him turn the heat up. Sigh.

It's pretty cool. We got one for the new place because the one that was in there wasn't programmable to the degree we needed and I like the ability to monitor and set the thermostat from my phone, anywhere. The reporting on it is pretty cool, and will definitely come in handy for monitoring usage and showing results for winterizing. I also like how it's aware of the temp outside, and if you get an energy leaf (basically the Nest's way of patting you on the back for using less energy), it doesn't just hand it out on the basis that it was warmer / cooler outside or something. The "time to temperature" feature will also come in handy once it finishes learning our house.

I'm eager for them to take it a step further and show monetary projections and different scenarios... e.g., "If you drop the thermostat to this temp for this block of time, you'll save roughly x!"

If you want the means to monitor your usage, easily, and like the idea of being able to tweak it when you're away, it's pretty solid. It's also just a slick-looking device.

Now I want something that does for electricity what Nest does for temperature control.

Interesting. Now that I live by myself again, I keep the house pretty cold. 50 when I'm at work, 65 when I'm home. I probably don't need to be so aggressive since my house is pretty energy tight, and my furnace is a 98% efficient one that's only 3 years old.

Of course I have to bump that up a bit when my lady friend is over since she's always cold, but that's a small price to pay. :p

Fall is definitely now here where I live. Cold front followed a few hours after last night's rain.

84*F here yesterday; Stewie and I went swimming outside for a couple hours for last time for the year. Water was perfect; a great time.

Ya know what, then? It might not be worth it for you. You're already running pretty slim and don't have too much variance going on with folks coming in and out of your place.

Your lady friend in a cold house?

Give me your corporate-party-in-Buffalo ideas without mentioning anything related to stripping, strippers, or prostitution. Roughly 30 or 40 people.

Pearl Street (where our rehearsal dinner was). Hire strippers.

Competition-like scavenger hunt where teams of 5 or so people drink alcohol and accidentally ingest ruffies, then try to steal Mike Tyson's tiger?

(See - you don't need the stippers for that, superfluous plot element.)
