See, the thing is…

I did finally accomplish the goal of unclogging that dreaded bathroom sink. Though, it was not through “process 1”. After failing a “textbook procedure”, I was quite disheartened. Then realized I hadn’t even considered the option of using a Drain Auger. This indeed did the trick! The clog was gone! Caught in the spiralled tip of the Auger I found the plumbing crisis culprits. Two bobby-pins.

And now comes the part where I explain why my victory image will not be posted in the near future…our computer’s power supply has bit the dust, so to speak.

DIY

It’s 2:43 pm on my day off, and I have decided to go on an adventure.

Today I will finally unclog the upstairs bathroom sink, which I share with three other roommates. (I am desperately hoping that fish bowl rocks belonging to recently deceased Beta are not trapped within the plumbing.) According to “Dare to Repair A Do-It-Herself Guide to Fixing (Almost) Anything in the Home” I will simply need a rag to plug the overflow hole of the sink…and a plunger. Here is where I run into problem #1. I do not have the basic tool to complete the task. So off I will hurry with boyfriend in company to various local shops to purchase said item.

Once back at base, I will proceed to complete the simple unclogging a bathroom drain process. Should there indeed be something foreign stuck in the plumbing (problem #2), I will have to result to the “Retrieving Treasures from a Sink Trap” process page 37. Which involves items such as a bucket, masking tape, slip-joint pliers/plumber’s wrench as well as lubricating spray.

I hope to post a “victory” photo after the first process.

I suppose it’s a good thing I lucked into a supply of India Ink, pens & white-out.

Adrenaline Rush of the Day: Crocosaurus Cove park — aptly located in Darwin, Australia — has begun offering adventurous visitors a chance to “swim” with saltwater crocodiles inside a five-inch thick, 10ft-tall perspex box which runs along a monorail track across four crocodile enclosures.
From the Daily Mail:

Sallie Gregory, spokeswoman for the park, said: ‘Many people find the opportunity of getting to within a few inches from the jaws of these crocodiles exhilarating.’
‘People often get activity ranging from an aggressive attack to a casual eye-balling and swim past where the crocs are so close that they rub against the cage.’
‘Most of the women who take part say they are happy just to watch the crocodiles while guys tend to want the action and attack.’ […]
‘The top of the cage has two grated doors to stop anything entering the cage and a back up motor and separate chain operates to ensure that in the event of a malfunction, the cage can continue to operate.’

And it just so happens that one of the Crocosaurus Cove crocs is somewhat of a celebrity: He nearly ate Linda Koslowski’s character in the first Crocodile Dundee movie.
