I Was Thinking About Something Else

That pretty much sums up my life nowadays. I will be doing something, walking into a room or driving, and I will go askew. Someone will inevitably ask at that same moment, "What are you doing?". Which will confuse me and I can only respond, "Yeah, well...I was thinking about something else".

A Day of Days

Today was the day that the shower water in the upstairs bathtub decided to reroute through the wall. The wall that has all the shower and bath plumbing fixtures, adjacent to aforementioned bathtub. The water did this rather than assume the more tried and true course of the bathtub drain.
The water in choosing this road did not understand the logistical considerations of such a career decision. Things like, oh, unprepared house interwiring, unseaworthy wood and sheetrock, panicing humans when ceiling light fixtures blow because they're filling up with h2o. Sometimes change is not good.
The water was persistent, too. Did not stop until it found a path all the way to the basement.
May I take a moment here to mention the virtues of wet/dry vac's. Good times, good times.
A rule in our house is that we don't purchase the non-free movies available on cable. My son chose to ignore this rule and qeued up Grandma's Boy. I found out when I saw the movie playing and someone said fuck and I thought, hmm, not regular tv, no dvd or tape. Well, long story short, I watched it a couple of times and it was hilarious. it's all Adam Sandler's cronies in their own movie and they do a really good job and I look forward to more from them.
