update at 6:35p sat.. appears fine in safari, broken in firefox. will try to get it to clean up proper. not sure where that comment closure is coming from…
update at 4:50.. not sure about the weird formating. ::shrugs:: I’ll look at it motzei shabbos.
update at 4:30.. ok, it was some loose screws and then the line to the tank started leaking. that was fixed too. my rug and some rag towels are now mostly dry and hanging and the floor hasn’t been that clean in a while. Dinner is cooked. I’m still scared of the toilet and that if I look wrong, the thing will leak again, so I will be reviewing some toilet anatomy and making sure that I have parts and tools onhand to prevent or quickly fix this in the future. Oy, my mum’s (?) father must be shaking his head at me. He was a plumber (I think) and taught her about fixing them. Of course I am totally clueless about this kind without a tank I don’t know how to fix. (My flat had one of those. It was weird and annoying.)
I was vacuuming the bathroom in prep to wash the floors and I hit the toilet tank and discovered that the washers screw was loose that connecting tank to toilet bowl are totally corroded and that tap caused them to completely unseat and the full tank leaked all over. L, one of the maintenance guys I tracked down, groaned because everything he has to fix for me involves him getting wet (the leak in the shower was another). Well, it is one way to make sure I clean the bathroom floor, but not quite what I had in mind for 3pm on a Friday afternoon. At least the water’s been turned off, I wasn’t strong enough to attempt it at the toilet. I can’t wait until I live in a house and can make or break things on a more sane schedule.
