I've gotta figure out how to get out of going to see a friend on Saturday and going to a memorial for a dead one on Sunday. My girlfriend isn't up to it and we have her cancer care appointment Tuesday, so I was hoping to just have her resting up at home all weekend and I don't wanna tell people I'm gonna be a no show cause my girlfriend isn't well because that's a fairly common theme and I don't want them losing patience with her, especially when she needs people around.

We are currently under a tornado watch for the next 4 hours... there isn't a cloud in the sky and looking at meteorological maps doesn't show anything either...

Airport isn't even indicating bad weather until 4am and even that is indicated to be far from city limits...

On my third throwaway chunk of code to fix another (third) asinine problem no one cared to mention until today. Trying to explain it to the intern as I am grabbing data, shaking it, baking it, and cramming it back in to the db all nice and neat. Intern seemed concerned at my level of contained annoyance/border-line-anger at having my day trashed.

You should tell the intern it's fine. Technically, only postal workers can go postal.

When it rains, it pours, kids!

We started our long holiday weekend with a sewage leak in the basement.

Initially, we assumed it was just a wax seal in need of replacing, so we recruited my best friend and her husband to come up and walk us through the process because they've done this several times at their house.

When we lifted the toilet off the hole, we discovered a far.... shittier... problem - the line was clogged, massively, and all the way to floor level. Apparently we're power poopers. To be fair, though, the wax seal was disintegrating as well - it would have all backed up into the toilet had the seal been completely in tact.

So, we did our Google research and managed to dislodge the mass of raw butt nuggets at the floor hole. We also replaced the wax seal with a "better than wax" rubber seal. It was still leaking. There is a clog further down the line. But we were still able to do everything except flush without causing a problem. We resigned ourselves to a weekend of family bonding by taking group poop runs to the nearest Walmart a couple times a day. I refuse to pay emergency fees and holiday charges in addition to already exorbitant plumber's pricing.

At my mother's urging, we attempted a baking-soda-and-warm-vinegar cleanse which semi-worked in that it dislodged a clog which went down the line and met another lump of stuff and caused a mega clog. At this point, anything and everything water-related caused the basement bathroom to flood with nasty, nasty, NASTY sewer water. No potties. No showers. No brushing of teeth or washing of hands. No clean laundry. No doing dishes.

It's been an adventure.

So, I'm working from home today and waiting for the Roto Rooter guy to get here and bore a hole through the remains of the Golgothan Shit Demon so we can get back to something resembling a normal life.

In other news, my car loan has been approved. I just have to find time between today's plumbing excitement, my daughter's graduation tomorrow night, an in-office work day on Thursday (meaning I won't get home until ~6pm), party prep Friday, and a 100+ guest graduation party on Saturday... to find a car. And to baby my SUV to a We Buy Any Car lot to sell it.

I'd like to take a deep breath and relax for a moment, but my office is next to the basement bathroom and it smells like ass.

Had an enjoyable three day weekend in the new house, movers did their thing, which unfortunately included taking out one of my walkway lights, two furniture deliveries are done, new smoker acquired, and the kids enjoyed the pool so much they didn't leave it all weekend; and because of the overcast day yesterday, ignore the adults telling them to put the sunscreen on and got burned!

The down side, I still have two to three days getting the rest of the stuff out of the apartment and doing the obligatory cleaning... Trying to find the motivation to actually do it now that my mind has switched from, "need to get this stuff packed up for the move!" to, "I'm in the house with stuff, just leave it there!"

So, early mornings into work so I can leave reasonably to work on the apartment in the evenings.

DAMN B9 you really like to keep it interesting!!! Are you on septic or city sewer?

It's feast or famine on my planet, unfortunately. Either there's absolutely nothing going on for huge swaths of time, or it's absolutely every that could possibly happen all happening simultaneously.

And we're on city sewer.

They just confirmed it was an ef3. I literally said I'd bet $100 that it would be at least a 3.

$249 later and I can shower, flush, and do laundry in my own home.

Seems reasonable to exorcise a poo-poo demon.

Did they find any buried treasures?
