10:59a - DOH!
So last night, I take a bath. When I am done taking the bath, I drain the tub. Tub drains 1/4 of water, then stops suddenly.
I remember Matt telling me that he had to plunge the tub that morning, so I assume it's clogged again. Not wanting to call maintenance, I whip out the handy-dandy plunger-o-doom and battle for about 10 minutes with the drain. Alas, it is to no avail.
I leave the bathroom, hoping maybe the water will just drain slowly.
About an hour later, there sits the water, mocking me.
Grudgingly, I call maintenance and tell them the tubs clogged, water not going down at all. The nice lady on the phone says she'll send someone out in the morning.

*this morning*

I wake up early in case maintenance decides they want to show up at 8. 2 hours pass, no guy with drain snake. So, I call maintenance again and tell them I'd really really like to take a shower now, will they please come fix the damn drain?
Oh yes, yes! We will send someone now!

*1 hour later*

Guy with plunger shows up at the door. I tell him I've already tried plunging it. He goes into the bathroom and:


*insert picture of me feeling like an utter fool here*
I apologise profusely for wasting his precious 'could have been fixing an old lady's heater' time, and he leaves.
I still don't know how the damn thing got flipped, since I wasn't anywhere near the tub when it stopped. But oh boy, do I feel like a moron.

current mood: embarrassed

(scream real loud)

Added polystyrene to my friends list.
Why? Because I can't resist tacos.

current mood: amused

(scream real loud)

10:57p - Ug.
I think I just paid 5 dollars for a bad case of indegestion.
Do not buy salad and jo-jos at the supermarket after 10:00 pm. They will be gross. I promise.

Well, day 2 of no Mattypoo went well, I think. I didn't stay inside and weep mournfully or anything, so that's good. I did call long distance more than I should have, but... oh well.
I started re-reading "The Fellowship of the Ring," part one of the Lord of the Rings. I excersized. I wrote on my calendar the day "Pearl Harbour" comes to theatres near me. I contemplated re-arranging the bedroom but never got the inspiration. I'll save that for tomorow.
Kitty mocked me today by rolling around and stretching during my excersizes. It was as if she were saying "Oh look at my furry tummy! It is saggy and no one cares. In fact, you probably think it's cute. Ha! Don't you wish you were a kitty, Ms. Lardo?" Roll, roll, puurrrrrr...
She's finally playing on her kitty gym. She uses it to look out the window. She's even scratched it! I tried to pretend I didn't care that she was scratching it, because if she finds out that it's okay to scratch, she'll never do it again. So I glared at her a little, but not too much.
Hmm, well I think I'm going to take a bath and read for a bit now.
Life in the carpool lane, baby...

current mood: blah

(scream real loud)
