Well this morning I was awakened by the maintenance staff here at Sycamore Lane Apartments. They were here to fix some water damage under the sink and to replace a faucet (not related actually). It seems that I have had some water dripping from a pipe under the sink. When the trap would fill with water, it would leak thru the seal between the trap and the pipe. By the looks of it, there was a period of leaking as the plywood under the sink had sagged in the back and was kinda rust colored. They came to fix the pipe and to replace the wood under the sink. Well it turns out that they put in a new piece of plywood on top of he damaged one and then painted it white and sealed the edges. Is this the right way to do this? I mean it looks nice and new and all, but the wood underneath is still damaged and who knows if there are mold issues to contend with.
Well, when they finished under the sink, the then proceeded to replace the faucet. I had purchased this faucet a while back, but I’m no plumber. I wanted the spigot to be higher than it was. I literally only had like 3 inches of space between the spigot and the divider in the sink – making it difficult to wash large items as there was no room to maneuver. Now its in and has plenty of room. In addition I think they cranked up the inputs and it was way better pressure than before.
So on Bravo today they had a Flipping Out marathon. This was my chance to catch up on last seasons’ antics of Jeff, Jennie, Zoila and Trace. I love this show. I love his aesthetic, his design sense and his “I don’t care, do what you have to do to make it right” attitude. Flipping out premieres next Wednesday and I can’t wait. For those that don’t watch the show, Jeff broke up with his longtime partner and business partner. This was also the same time the economy started to tumble and Jeff was no longer flipping house, but now designing. This season a new cast member joins the cast and he not only works for Jeff, but is his new boyfriend. Can’t wait!
USA Network must have a long term contract with Bellsario Productions and CBS to air syndication of NCIS. I mean everyday there is some kind of NCIS marathon running, its almost ridiculous. Today after about three episodes, we come to the premiere of a new original show called Necessary Roughness. This is the story about Dr. Dani Santino who is a therapist helping people with addictions, loss issues, etc. After some trauma in her own life, she struggles to make ends meet with here son and daughter after kicking out her husband for cheating. Dani comes across a trainer and turns out he is a trainer (Matthew Donnally) for a fictitious football team, the Hawks. Their number one player (Terrence King) isn’t being so number one. He hasn’t been able to catch the ball in weeks and continues to fumble the ball time after time. Of course this “star” player leads a reckless life of drinking, partying and can’t control his temper. Matthew thinks maybe Dani can help. The head couch hires Dani to see if she can help T.K.
It’s an interesting storyline and I actually watched the entire 90 minute premiere. Will this show survive? USA picked up at least 12 episodes.
Meanwhile, be on the lookout for anew show premiering tomorrow called Suits. Here’s a clip:
