Fashion Vs Function

The weekend came and zipped by in a whim. A and I did quite a bit of research and window shopped for recess lightings, mini pendant lights, tiles, mosaics and shower faucets. Given that A and I like the exact opposites, it took us quite a while to find somehting that we both agreed upon. Ofcourse, A usually likes most of my choices, but vice versa is very seldom. So you can imagine A's choices! Or am I picky ? Am sure A would nod to that. Our conversation goes something like

A : hey, which of these three shower heads do you like ?
Me : hmmm....all except the round ones.
A (with big eyes and a sad smiley): really? not the round ones???
Me : oh, you like the round ones?? (actually meaning, C'mon....how can someone even like it?)
A : yeah...those are the multi function shower heads with variable spray patterns....
Me : Okay....if we don't find the same functions in a slightly flatter shower head, we will take round ones......

The research continues.....

We were at Home Depot, shopping for recessed lightings, when

Me: hey, the white eye ball looks really stylish.....
A: yeah, that looks cool...
After looking around for a while, I still stick to the white eye ball, whereas A has spotted a plain white trim with back interior.
A: Doesn't this look good?
Me: yeah.....but the I like the eyeball better....
A: Why don't you forget the eye ball and look at something else?
Me: Why? I like the eyeball...it's more stylish...
A: Six eyeballs won't look nice....instead these plain white trims with black interiors are better as black absorbs light and hence the light won't be too bright when turned on......
Me: but the black interiors don't match with the other trims that we already have......
A: eyeballs don't match with them either....
Me: hmmmm........
A: Or, let's have two eyeballs and 4 plain white trims...huh?
Me : That won't look nice.....okay let's just get the plain white trims. We'll have dimmers instead of switches.....

So, it is always a clash of fashion Vs function :)

We treated ourselves to some great vegan chinese food at Vegan Garden Restaurant in the international district. We smacked our lips at the Golden Rolls and Eggplant Tofu Hotpot. I can't get enought of it and crave for it, nonetheless.

Then, came the Super Bowl on Sunday. With our house getting remodeled and no flat screen TV at our disposal, we went to Rock Bottom to watch the game admidst the other screaming fans. I was more interested in the brewery nachos and the spicy cheese dip with pita bread, than the game itself. I would look up at the screen everytime A went "Oh! what a touch down!" , and then wait for the Ads to come.

Thus, came to an end, an eventful weekend.
