The Basement (Parts 13, 14, & 15 of 184)

Part 13: A new TV!
After much research, we picked a TV and bought it at Crutchfield. It'll be delivered sometime next month, when we actually have somewhere to put it.

Part 14: Significant Electrical Progress
There has been Significant Progress on the basement electric work, thanks to our friendly electrician (and in some cases his friendly crew). All of the outlets and recessed lights are run - so all that's left are the fixtures in the closets (laundry and under the stairs) and the bathroom lights, and the circuit breakers. I think. To be honest, I don't really know what's left, since I have no idea how this stuff works.

Part 15: General aesthetic (not anesthetic) decisions
My dear sister very generously took the day on Friday to come help me make some decorating decisions. We chose a carpet, narrowed down the cabinet choices to two (for the bar, just waiting on a price quote for one of them), and picked a granite countertop (we think, although we are still having the Granite Slab vs. Granite Tile debate). We also maybe picked a wall color for the big room - Mr. B and I are going to sit on it for a few days and see how we feel.

So...things are coming along!

    Hi Mrs. B,
    My name is Christopher Lawton. I am a reporter for the Wall Street Journal based in San Francisco, Calif. I am writing a story about the latest flat panel TVs on the market for the holidays and I came across your blog post about having just purchased a new TV. I wasn't sure if the purchase was specifically for the holidays, but in any case I was wondering if you would be interested in interviewing with me about the TV for my article. It wouldn't take too much of your time. I just wanted to ask a couple questions about what you ended up getting and why you chose it. If you are interested, please let me know. I can be reached via email at You can also reach me in the office at 415.765.8200. Hope to hear from you.
