Release the hounds!

I guess the people who lived here previously took the shower curtain rod with them when they left. So I didn’t have one. I didn’t realize this until late last night. This morning I decided I could take a quick shower and try to deflect most of the water towards the wall. It worked fairly well, but the floor still got a little wet.

So I decided to soak up the water with toilet paper, which I then disposed of in the toilet. Bad idea, the toilet got clogged. “Oh well, I’ll take care of it later.”

So I get home today and think, “La di da, maybe the toilet fixed itself? It looks ok…” I then proceeded to do a test-flush. Bad idea. Whoever created toilets that are incapable of containing more than the normal water level + one-flush-load-of-water needs to be assassinated.

And this was quite a bit more water than from the shower. I soaked it up with a towel and wrung it out a few times in the shower. PITA. The good part is that I had just cleaned the hell out of the bathroom the night before. So the water was somewhat clean.

I think I’m going to put together my desk now.

Oh, and I just ate a chewey granola bar. So now, not only are my back, arms and legs sore–my jaw is sore.

It’ll be cool to have bookshelves again. I can put all my Roald Dahl books on display, for the world to see!

    The discussion of water and drying reminds me of my first day of class Freshman year. I woke up bright and early to grab a shower, after which I dried off with my brand new bright-blue towel. The towel proceeded to leave a light blue fuzz all over my body (lint because it hadn’t been washed?) So imagine me frantically wiping blue lint off my body with toliet paper so that I might make it to class not looking like a Smurf. Ah, college.
