I cut this out of the Stratford Gazette because it still makes me laugh to no end! "Nothing to see here but us Swans!" haha! Can you spot the parade crasher? ")

So for the past few months Ive had issues with my kitchen sink. For the first while it would just make strange bubbling noises and sounded much like something out of Stephen King's it. Things were floating down there alright, Floating and gushing right on up and out of the pipe into my sink. Things like bean sprouts and bits of tomato and other unidentifiable somewhat decaying hunks of crap. I have never had bean sprouts in this house. They are someone else's dirty old bean sprouts. Sometimes the water is soapy too. Well now things are really out of control. I came home one day to find my kitchen half flooded and all of my cookbooks ruined and stained with pipe remnants. It now floods at least one to two times a day. Luckily I have been home to catch it which makes me wonder if it's someone else's shower water or something. Friggin sick. I bail out my kitchen sink with a bucket and dump it in the bathroom sink....which has no hot water. The landlord says he's getting the plumber in asap. That's what he said 3 months ago when I first revealed the minor backing upage. Im going to find a way to beat the shit out of my sink pretty soon, but I reckon it would hurt me a lot more. I need some good rubber boots. Where's Perd when I need her?

I went with my parents to Stratford this past weekend to hitch a ride to my Brother's house for a big sushi shindig. We first had to go to this place called the Restore which sells buliding supplies and furniture for quite cheap and all proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity. Dad very much wants a new door for the basement. We were searching through the door section when I came across this very impressive big hardcore bathtub think that looked like a boat and had all these tubes and buttons.I said to mum: "Whoa, what is this thing for?" Mum: "I think it's for hosing down old people"
my mum's funny.
