No. I think Tink needs to stop needling the unnamed person. What is she hoping to achieve? On the one hand she's crying unfair becasue she perceives that we only ever heard BigV's story and all sided with him, and then she launches a one-sided attack on another dwellar and is encoranging dwellars to side with her.

I think Tink was brave to join the cellar given that she felt this way about our perceptions of her, and I'm glad she did. But I'm not happy about this picking on an un-named dwellar. And yes, I do think I know who it is and if I'm right, I'm pretty darn positive that these attacks are unwarranted and unfair. That's what has to stop first.

and yes, that was more like $2 than 2c.

Why is paranoia making everyone act as though Tink shouldn't have said what she said? I thought it was great that she brought her concerns into the open, so they could be addressed. Methinks, as Tink said, unnamed dwellar knows who she is; the rest of us don't need to worry about it.

But, lookout's post was right on about we are not in the situation. So, I second most of what lookout said and urge us all to not get defensive towards Tink. We weren't there. We don't know.

I don't see Tink's post as needling. She's not beating a dead horse - she let us know what happened, but isn't going to tell us who. And that's ok.

maybe. but it's one-sided. She'll telling us what happened -her version. But, I'm also spent up in the 2c department for now. I would really like the whole topic to be dropped, I am glad they sorted it out and are insanely happy. The public smooching is a bit much for me, but it's a small price to pay to see them happy.

So anyway. Back to me.

I'm really really upset that I've got to deal with a leaking toilet at home tonight. I mean it. Gonna have to take a trip to Home Depot. I started out loving that place when it opened about ten years ago. Now it just smacks of chaos whenever I'm there. My wife gets an instant headache when she walks through their door, and I'm starting to feel the same way about the place. I'll buy the new wax seal I need, but I'll probably end up buying a new supply hose and the little foam rubber gasket that goes between the tank and bowl.

I'll get home, shut off the water valve, flush the toilet and suck the tank and bowl dry with the shop vac. Hold on, now that I think about it, I'll need to empty the shop vac first, otherwise I'll have a nasty sludge bucket of wet plaster dust in there.

So I'll remove the tank. Unscrew the bolts and pull up the toilet. Scrape off the old wax ring and put on the new one. That's if everything goes according to plan. It never does. I bet I need a flange extender. I think the closet flange is too low. I fixed this toilet just three years ago. It shouldn't be leaking again yet.

Should I buy some new rubber gloves for this job?

Don't replace the wax with more wax. Beest found some good modern alternatives when ours leaked.

Yeah, after all, it is only once every 3 years you get to do this!

Now we're talking. I think I'll try some lamb skin gloves for this. They may be a little too porous. Hmm...

I think I ruined my wig. I opened the oven door to take out some fries and I think the heat melted my bangs. the damage is irreversable. go ahead. laugh. it's very sad to me. plus, wig was donated by worthy women who bail out losers like me...they paid for it and I've ruined it in two days.


I just want to go home to satan now.
