Today "The Bloggess", Jenny Lawson, wrote a post about strange noises coming from her toilet. I won't try to summarize, you can just read her post (if you haven't already. And if you haven't, what's wrong with you? Seriously-- read her stuff. It's hilarious: http://www.thebloggess.com ). It made me remember this story about Russian toilets; I added this comment to Jenny's post:
Natasha, my girlfriend, and her husband are actors in St. Petersburg. When they first got married, they lived in a communal apartment provided by the theater company that hired them. She said the living conditions were pretty bleak. I think that's a fair description considering they had a RAT living permanently in their toilet. Ugh. And I don't even want to imagine what the plastic bottle must have looked like. Hopefully they changed it out frequently. I'll probably have nightmares tonight featuring rats, toilet bowls and Pepsi bottles. You might also. If so, I'm sorry! It's all Russia's fault.
Speaking of nightmares, this happened on Tuesday:
Hey-- who wants to come to my house for a sleepover! No one? I don't blame you.
Lastly, this letter was in my mail tonight. It's an example of one of those annoying bureaucratic problems that we all have to deal with from time to time. Moments like these make me think that incompetence rules the world:
The bill from the county clerk was mailed October 15th. So yeah-- it only took five, almost six, weeks to mail the letter. It happens. And it's completely acceptable to mail a letter AFTER the due date mentioned within the letter has passed. Sigh. Just one more problem to take care of on Monday. Yippee!
I'm the worst kind of asshole-- I think I'm funny.
