gel mat

Out of sheer curiosity, how do these look? I don't think that I would want an automotive mat in my kitchen. I like that mine looks like wood.

(not my actual kitchen)

Servers Who Smoke

I've never waited tables but I'd imagine that it must be pretty stressful to be waiting on a table that feels entitled to 100% of your time.
I think that smokers often smoke when they feel stressed; try lightening up a bit and maybe you will encounter this problem less frequently....

Fenway Park: What to eat?

Got the kettle corn on opening day, gotta tell you that I waited in that blasted line for the best part of an hour and the kettle corn was sub-par at best, although it was warm for a moment when I got it.

I'd say skip the corn, it is not worth the time investment needed to get it. Get something else and pick up a bag of this http://www.popcornindiana.com/kettle-... at wal-mart on the way home.

That makes sense, move in move out days and such can be a nightmare.

gel mat

So far so good. the quality is great and I like that it i has a firm and smooth surface, it cleans very easily but the cushion really helps my knees.

new vitamin water 10: weird-tasting

I am sorry to hear this I was looking forward to trying this stuff. So many of these drinks are far too sweet. I always end up with water or unsweetened iced tea

gel mat

I was turned off by the price, plus they seemed too squishy to me and I can't imagine trying to clean flour off of it. All that said I almost got one but I got a wood grained one with a firmer surface instead, I got mine on a website called matsetc.com they treated me well and the price was good. I think that they sell mostly to commercial customers because the "household area" is pretty small.
Here is that mat I got, I love it.

Kitchen anti-fatigue mats (PDX)

I just wrote a post about this and saw your question.

The mat that I have is a wood grain and it looks nice on my floor...
Anyway this is what I had written about the mat

"looked at the Gel Pro mats too and while they seemed nice I thought that they were a bit too squishy. and expensive anyhow...

I found a nice mat on this site l that has a lot of cushion but the top surface is still firm (and easy to clean) and and by the way, I love this mat my knees used to hurt after being in the kitchen for a short period of time, I am actually enjoying cooking again.
