We watched two of the Die Hards, an episode of Millennium and La Vie en Rose -- I've heard the average American watches 4 hours of television a day and we got close to that the last few days. Woohoo.
One problem with our house has been the lighting in the upstairs. You have to go down a long hallway to get to the light switch so when someone wants to use the restroom, one of us usually has to run upstairs first to turn the lights on so they don't trip on Momcat and break their neck. Well, I thought, "Wouldn't it be nice to have a rope light that just runs the whole length of the hallway that you can turn on and off from either up or down stairs?
So now we have that. And I got to use my drill and be all manly.
