Kitchen Towels Suck - all of them

Nov
22

I don't know why people buy, sell, & use kitchen towels like these.  yes, I own several of them myself (picture below).  But these towels SUCK!.  They don't perform well as I want them to. They are too small and thin that they quickly become soaking wet.  They need to be thicker and larger.  Dish towels have been around for many years... but am I the only person with this complain?  Are you guys happy with your dish towels?

I keep some of the dish towels just because I want to follow the tradition.  I may even use them when I have formal guests.  But what really works for me is bathroom hand towels (28 to 30 Inches long).

I don't know what kind of dish towels you guys use.  To me, nothing even comes close to bathroom hand towels, and I will continue to use them in the kitchen.

FYI: The towels I use in the kitchen are from Costco.  :)

Costco Shopping for Thanksgiving Dinner

Nov
22

Oh boy, I am excited about the turkey I'm going to bake in a few days.  I decided to take a short-cut on side dishes - I bought them all pre-made.  I am not done shopping yet.  I still need some snacks, a pie, and drinks.

The turkey is 20 lb.

Costco Dylan George T-Shirts - Bought 40 of them.

Nov
15

I know this will sound crazy to some people.  But, this will make perfect sense to some others.  I bought 40 shirts at Costco (Dylan George).  3 different colors, but same design.

About 3 years ago I bought 29 Calvin Klein T-Shirts.  For 2 years those Calvin Klein v-necks were "my look" that I truly enjoyed.  Costco brought back the same shirts earlier this year.  They were the same design as before, but they used entirely different (stupid) material that they couldn't pay me enough for me to wear them.

After two years I wore out all my CK shirts, so I had to throw them out,  I spent over a  year looking for my new shirts with no luck.  Then I finally found these Dylan George T-Shirts at Costco.  It's the brand name I have never heard of.  They were only $9.99 each, and they fit me well.  They are slim fit.  The sleeves are shorter than conventional t-shirts - I like that.  It has a small pocket that separates these shirts from most t-shirts that are basically undershirts. I really like these shirts.  I found my new look. So, I bought 40 of them.

$400 is a lot of money, but, to me, this was a smart investment.  I wish had I bought 70 Calvin Klein shirts 3 years ago, instead of measly 29.  What was I thinking??  x_0

Anyway, I've been hearing random compliments about my shirt.  Some dude even asked me if I work out.  It's good to know they like my shirts, because they will see them for a few years.  Haha.

Stack of 28 shirts

40 shirts in the closet.  After washing them, I hang my shirts on the right side. I wear whatever that's hanging on the left side.  So the shirts will slowly rotate from right to left.  It will take 40+ days to complete a rotation.  It will rotate 9 times in one year.

* The picture shows 1/3 (33%) of the closet.  I also have a coat closet,

That blows

Sep
06

I saw this super expensive hair dryer at Costco for a short time.  Then they were gone and I never saw them again.

At that time, I was wondering about its performance.  So, I texted a friend of mine who was a professional hair designer (for 20+ years).

It's a bad review.  Since Costco doesn't seem to carry it anymore I thought I share the conversation.

Update: Business? or Pleasure?

Sep
01

This is an update from my August 1, 2015 post, Business? or Pleasure?

I thought the ball was on my court.  If I was to respond to her note I shouldn't keep her waiting too long.  I don't believe in making girls wait 3 days before calling.  I like girls who appreciate good guys.

Anyway, I sent her a quick email.
I told her that I appreciated her hand written card.  I said I was happy with the bank and the only complaint was that I didn't see her often.  But, I didn't "Ask her out".  I figured, if she was truly interested, she would reply to my email.

Then a few weeks passed without her reply.  Now I feel awkward and stupid that I sent that email. I believe, now, that the card was only a business.  It's embarrassing, but, really, her card was confusing.  Anyway...

Oh, no, I can never show my face at the bank, of course.  :(

Maybe I will just visit her and say   "So..?  Are we gonna do this or what?"  Haha!!
