Household update.

Well. There are now pipes in the walls again. New shiny pipes. Copper pipes.

They put the showerhead about 4" taller. wurmfood: they've done this in your old bathroom, as well.

They put in one of those lovely one-handed nozzle switches in the shower, as well. That which is known as the turnybuttonthing. I am of two minds about this. A good turnybuttonthing is a thing of joy. But as we all know, turnybuttonthings lie.

Today, if I am fortunate, I will come home to find that there is drywall all through the room. And perhaps tomorrow I will find that it's been painted and then the next day tiled. Or perhaps the other way 'round.

Thursday, I will be working from home while they replace my fridge which is, I am quite certain, older than my post-pubescence. They will also be replacing the next-door neighbor's fridge same day.

I am less than optimistic about the concept of walking naked from my bed to the shower anytime in the near future, but I do think I may be able to get up at 3 in the morning to pee and not need a flashlight and a trip into The Boiler Room sometime soon.

and I'm off to work.
