Initially thought the toilet chain had come unhooked from the flapper: no prob

It came unhooked because the rubber hole on the flapper valve had worn through: boo!

Turned off water to toilet: success

Detached & extricated flapper valve (pointedly not thinking about all that gunk in there): success

Will go to store to see if they have flapper valves of the right size (will bring detached valve as reference): this afternoon

DID ALL WITHOUT CONSULTING DAD: so far so good

We were watching "The Grinder" on Netflix, and it's funny enough. Silly, but I am totally okay with silly these days. Rob Lowe is Rob Lowe-ing all over everything.

But now Timothy Olyphant has shown up as a villain. I am ON BOARD.

and write that sexbot comedy that's currently languishing halfway finished on my hard drive.

Today I hate myself and all my works. So I cleaned, because if I'm going to have a complete tantrumy meltdown like a two-year-old, I'm at least mature enough to clean up all the actual two-year-old's toys while I'm at it.

Then I had a shower to calm down, during which I had two thoughts: one, I could change the entire dissertation and that would SHOW THEM; and two, I forget what two was but it was very satisfying at the time. These were not reasonable thoughts but at least they were fighting thoughts, which is an improvement over "at least when I fail I'll be finished with this pile of excrescence."

Anyway, this post mainly to record the main point: The world is poorer for not having my sexbot comedy in it yet.

nestra: Lyrics from the Sondheim show "Company" (Company)
[personal profile] nestra
Driving to physical therapy, listening to "Seventy-Six Trombones":

Seventy-six trombones caught the morning sun,.
With a hundred and ten cornets right behind.
There were more than a thousand reeds
Springing up like weeds.
There were horns of every shape and kind.


Me: How come there were more than a thousand reeds but only seventy-six trombones?

Also me: Would you really want any more than seventy-six trombones? Or trombone players?

Me: You make a good point.
