Drywall Quality

On another (not the garage) project I'm working on, I used regular 1/2" drywall. It had been a long time since I did a drywall project, but the stuff I got from "the blue big box store" at $6 a sheet was lousy. It was sort of a light pinkish/brownish color instead of white, and seemed really brittle and hard to work with. Is this typical?


Honey, does this tool belt make me look FAT?
