9. January, 2004 - Moo! Damnit!

On the house front, I had to wake up early and finish my morning ablutions today because I’m expecting a plumber to arrive between 8 and 9 AM to make my shower suit my tastes more. And yes, I’m aware that I know at least one plumber and plenty of people who’d be willing to help, but Wednesday I just snapped over the shower and decided I wasn’t going to wait to get it fixed. I’m really tired of spending five minutes bent over (the shower head is mounted on the wall below the level of my shoulders) only to discover I still haven’t gotten all the shampoo out of my hair (the water flow from the shower is best described as “a gentle rain”). So it’s getting fixed today. There will be plenty of other projects for folks to help with.

The downside of this plan is that last night happened to be the night chosen for going out to tip back a few beers. Well, more than a few. I stumbled home a few minutes before midnight, and waking up about 6am wasn’t especially fun. It’s also kind of odd drinking with three married geeks. Between the four of us, we exuded an awfully powerful female-repellent field. But it was still a fun time, and there was a decent (or perhaps indecent) amount of ogling going on.

One of the interesting things about having bought a house is the number of people that I haven’t heard from in years who have come out of the woodwork to congratulate me on my purchase. I didn’t realize buying a house was such a cause for celebration, but there you have it. In any case, yes, I am planning a housewarming party, and I’d like to throw it in January, but I’m going to be a busy camper if I’m going to be ready by the 31st. Details to follow once the date gets closer. And no, I’m not looking for a housemate just yet. I still have to finish the work on the bedrooms before I have someone else move in here.
