Just after complaining about how I hadn’t been able to find a decent Mexican restaurant, Erin and I stumbled onto Los Dos Amigos on Lancaster Drive on Friday evening. Best Mexican food I have ever had. Festive atmosphere and average prices, but the food is unbelievably good. Having slogged my way through one disappointingly average Mexican dining experience after another, discovering something like Dos Amigos was like finding water in the desert. Highly recommended.

Last night we watched Spy Game with Robert Redford and Brad Pitt last night. Mindless entertainment? Yeppers. The DVD comes packed with extras, but honestly, I have no idea why anybody would care that much. There’s just nothing here of substance. It’s also—as spy movies tend to be—far too clever for it’s own good, and if a viewer really wants to spend the time, he or she can come up with almost innumerable ways in which the story bends reality in order to serve its needs. My recommendation: See it or don’t. It’s not stone cold stupid like, say, Con Air, but it’s not very good either.

I spent about five hours yesterday sealing the grout in the upstairs bathroom. That’s a long time to do anything, and the bad news is that I have to do it again this morning. Hopefully it will go faster, because it is insanely boring work. For whatever reason it reminded me of flossing: You’ve really need to do it, but that doesn’t mean it’s a whole lot of fun.

Darren, the tile guy, was here on Friday. He drilled through the tile and attached the grab bar—a nice safety feature. Hopefully it will prevent folks from grabbing onto the shower slider bar because that’s definitely not a grab bar. It’s screwed into a stud, of course, but not so securely that you can put your weigh on it. What can I say? For whatever reason, it was designed that way.

I’ve also added Darren’s company, D&A Tile, as a client. We’ll be setting a web site and everything after the first of the year, but for starters it’ll just be logo and new business cards. (His old business cards were a sorry text-only amalgam of different fonts and point sizes.) For those interested, here’s what the new logo I designed:
