plumbing!

I went to Home Depot tonight and picked up some supplies for plumbing in the water filter and a few other bits and pieces. I now have a stud finder. You should all be proud of me, I bought the $9 model on sale rather than the fancy $30 LCD model.

I also stopped in at Office Depot (what's with all the depots) and bought a label printer. They also had some good prices on UPS's so I picked one up for Julie's mom as a thank you for helping with all the packing.

I'm currently plumbing in the filter, and the kitchen is still (mostly) dry. I'm very happy about that.

*pokes vigorously* COMMEND HIM FOR HIS FRUGALITY RIGHT NOW.

Besides, what the hell are you going to do with a stud finder with an LCD screen? Seriously. I'm a big geek, but it doesn't even have wireless. Useless.

ahh, that explains why all the printers were out of tape then. You must have gotten there before me ;)

I had actually expected them to be more expensive, but this one was only $30 with a tape, and an 8m tape is $9. Not all that bad actually. Certainly not a bad price to have pretty labels on all my network jacks.

Lablemakers are fun, if you're bored. Then you go around labeling everything in sight. Then you peel off the labels and do it again, this time writing the names of things differently over and over again. Then you get bored, wonder why the hell you did it, and don't pick up the labelmaker again for a long time.
