shelleycat's feeling better, but didn't feel up to lots of driving, so i think we're going to do car shopping on tuesday. I'll have to get in early so i get off around 11 or noon so we'll have time to go by several places, possibly including the one in Ontario.

In the meantime we're watching "The Next Iron Chef" reruns while waiting for the finale later tonight. At the end of each episode they always start out naming the winner and then the runner-ups, until they get down to the two or three worst people, at which point they decided which one of them is going home (with much unneeded drama of course =) We were amused that for the episode where they had to make a dish with a "Mexican flair" using tamarind, when it got down to the last two chefs, the German chef defeated the French chef, because the German chef made a "mexican themed" tamarind eclair that the judges thought was one of the best eclairs they'd ever had. The French chef did not seem to appreciate the irony :)
