double-eek: it should be "self-rising flour," not "self-raising."

shouldn't the forks be on the left side and the knives on the right?

i love the calendar and will buy another one for 2010. but i had to tear off the top part—the part you're left with after removing all the months—of the 2009 version because it smelled awful, like cat urine. when i returned it to the store i bought it from, the owner said the smell might have been caused by a printing issue. but the replacement smelled just as bad. so now i hang up just a month at a time.

even though this piece is short it's the best-written one so far among the new york tryouts.

1. hold off making any decisions until you live in the apartment for a while.

2. look for design help at schools like columbia, parsons, f.i.t., and pratt. students often have great ideas that don't cost a lot.

3. please think about another color for the kitchen, something a bit easier on the eyes.

4. consider adding some of your own money to the pot to give yourselves more options. it'll pay off if you stay in the apartment for several years.

speaking of 3x6 white subway tiles, i have 5 boxes left over from a bathroom project that are taking up valuable closet space. each box would cover about 11 square feet. they're yours for $50 if you can pick them up before march 1.

please send an e-mail to if you're interested.

i get extra use out of my plastic bags by using them inside my garbage pail. does anyone have a good alternative? i'd love to go bag-free but i can't see throwing garbage straight into the pail.

since the wall isn't brick, i think i'm going to try combining the advice from maxwell and wende: buy a photo of a weathered poster on a wall, then apply it with wallpaper paste.
