As I tend to be something of a night owl at times, my days and nights have a tendency to run together. I fully admit to being lazy, but not to an extreme. And I'm not a TV addict. In fact, i have no TV, tho it might be nice to watch something, it isn't anything I really need, so I do without it. One reason for that is it costs too much for the garbage the various providers insist on throwing in with even a basic package. So, I pay for things I never even watch, as well as having to deal with all the commercials?????? What doesn't sound right here.

But that was a side track, not what I started to write. Now if I can prod those two sleeping brain cells awake and get them to function along with the one that woke me up, maybe I can get back on track. But don't count on it.

Last night i decided it was time to pour some drain cleaner down one of my sinks. Simple right. Normally it would have been, but I didn't just pour, i dumped it. Again, normally this would have worked, but not last night. I was using pure lye beads. they went thru the strainer in the sink ok, BUT, when they hit the elbow to head to the drain, wellllllll, they didn't bend. Yup, they proceeded to clump up, sealed the drain from that sink and solidify into a chunk of pure lye.

Oh fricking well, by the time I quit trying all the easy stuff, it was getting on toward 0200 or so, and not wanting to miss my extra hour of sleep, I went to bed. Finally got up real late and after a cup of barely warm coffee, got my body moving enough to go look at the situation. Put on a fresh pot, all the while trying to prod those other two brain cells awake. And they are barely staggering right now. Damn did I have something to drink I didn't know about last night???? Don't think so. Still too much in the rum bottle to be able to blame it on that.

Side tracked again. So i took a narrow blade knife and poked around, that was when i found the blockage. Tried a couple of times to break it up from the outside, thru the strainer. No luck, so, pull the pipe off of the sink drain and low and behold, one very solid, very hard chunk. I could have chipped at that all month with out breaking it up, from the top anyway. Took the short piece with the clog out to the shop, put it in the big vice, and tapped on a screw driver, it slid right out.

I guess now would be a good time to get in there and do the few dishes left over from yesterday. and maybe do some sorting here in this computer room. I swear it is going to take me all winter to decide what is good, and what just needs to be tossed. There is still that much, tho now i'm getting to more of my good garbage, and not quite so much of what was left from my brother.

There are days when I'd turn on the tv just to tell myself I used it and I wasn't paying for nothing with the disk :(

When I've noticed my drains starting to drain slow, I've gotten that Liquid Plumber gel that you pour down the drain and let it sit for up to an hour. Never had any problems with it.

I have my tv on, mostly for the noise. Sometimes I have local news on, or I might turn on the History Channel, or Animal Planet, or Investigation Discovery...and then just leave it on while I'm online.

At least you will have something to keep you busy over the winter months, sorting through all of that stuff.
