Okay. My kitchen is a tad cleaner now. My bathroom is very much cleaner because the roter rooter guy is coming by noon, and, well. It's amazing what a few shots of Fantastik can do, you know?

And, of course, I'm now, you know. Dressed to hat. Not to shoes, but to hat. Because it's not important that the plumber see my bare feet. :)

Okay. Plumber was here. All my cash is completely gone (And, seriously, $86.60 is perfectly reasonable, so I'm not complaining), but he was charming and competent. My toilet has been snaked and tested; my bathroom sink now *drains* - hallelujah. And he thinks it's the shower assembly behind the wall.

Which is therefore Not Our Fault.

Pesach update:
I have now purchased most of my non-perishables.

I still have some more to get, plus the perishables I'll need for Shabbos and the first two days. (Oh, and for tonight and this coming Shabbat...)

Because I am a genius :), and I have to pick up a friend's kid today, I arranged for my groceries to be delivered after 4PM, when I know I will be home. This makes everything easier.

Since the kid's parents are on my flist - I have snack food and a reasonably neat living room. And my ID. I'll be leaving in a few minutes to pick him up.

Babysitting

I currently have an eight-year old in my house. He's doing math homework. He's doing the math homework first because it's easiest and then he'll tackle the dreaded alphabetizing of spelling words.

I have learned he likes Hermione because she punched Draco, who's annoying. Actually, everyone but the Trio is annoying - especially Dudley - but also *all* the grown-ups, even Lupin.

All grown-ups in general are annoying, of course.

But chess is fun, as is Yu-Gi-Oh.
