I went to the DMV to get a learners permit this morning. That was the first annoyance: that although my UK license is perfectly OK for driving in the US (as long as I’m not a resident), it is not suff

My new cowboy boots hurt my feet. I know I have to go through a breaking-in phase, but in the meantime my left pinky toe is cursing at me non-stop.

I think Beyonce has at least three movies about to come out. I am relieved that I am unable to name them all. Does she need her own thread? Only asking.

The attraction to Katie Holmes is inexplicable to me but even I'd switch teams for a rendezvous with Beyonce. As long as she doesn't make me listen to her music.

This Fucking Old House, episode 14:

 

The toilet in the “master” bath has been running. Mr. Mora (who is TJ, by the way; I would like very much to stop referring to him here as “Mr. Mora”) purchased replacement tank innards on his last trip to Hell's Depot (sometime before Christmas) and finally had the time ( a “day off”) today to do the job, which he started at 3:30 this afternoon. At about 3:45, he interrupted me at my computer with a request for some decision-making assistance.

 

Two flights of stairs later, I was greeted in the bathroom by a severed toilet tank lying on its side in the tub, and a toilet bowl lifted precariously off the crumbling tile and rotted subflooring beneath it. TJ had broken off the tab on the back of the bowl when whacking it with a wrench trying to release the bolts securing the tank to the bowl. And then, of course, discovered the disintegrating floor.

 

I'm still not clear on why he needed my assistance with the decision to go buy a new toilet.

 

We returned home after an hour and a half round trip to Hell's Depot with a sprightly new model on board, along with a half sheet of 3/4 inch plywood with which to attempt replacement of the subflooring beneath the toilet. While I concocted dinner, TJ wrangled with the mess, then took a quick trip to a buddy's house to borrow jig- and reciprocating saws.

 

Until such time as we can afford to have a professional

 

well, someone with some rudimentary carpentry skills, come in and do the job sort of right, the corner of the bathroom floor will remain an abortion of torn-up tiles, sawn-out subflooring, and new plywood, all topped with a spanky new toilet.

 

My husband is not a domestic aesthete.

as long as everything goes where it should. (this is all purpose advice, by the way.)

No, I think we'll just shit in the bathtub for now.

to save water, consider doing it while taking a bath.

Is that a Baby Ruth?

Get out the checkbook and do it right. It's my least favorite job in construction,because it all depends upon matching toilet flange height. :rolleyes:
