- "Water-saver" sounded like a great idea, but there are just some instances where I want as much water as necessary - flushing would be number one . . . and number 2. I promise to save the Earth some other way.
- There is a way to stop an overflowing toilet. It is the water cut-off valve and it is nothing short of a minor miracle.
- Not all plungers are created equal. Using the cheap red rubber instrument is futile. Any clog worth your time will laugh at the red rubber plunger - and by laugh I mean splash a big mess on your new shoes right before a big date. The Master Plunger is the only plunger you will ever need. We seemed to like to display ours prominently.
- Pipe snake - cool in a disgusting sort of way.
- The "water-saver toilet" is mandated by law. At the time, we had some theories about the involvement of our now Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. However, now I can't remember why we were laying the blame on her.
- Plunger skills are another thing you should look for in a life-mate. However, since mine were honed to such a superb level, J is forced to exert plumbing excellence on the hair clogs I create in the sink pipes (he is horrified).
Yeah, I learned more things that year, but it's the memories that I took away that make me who I am today - completely warped.

Stay tuned for a riveting story of one of greatest lessons Tiffany and I learned during our sophomore year of college. There's drama, intrigue, and a plunger. It made us who we are today.
So, Dad, you weren't going to need that paint, right?
Carpet removal . . . check
That's right; those are the Santa Pants treat holders live and in person. They were found at a relative's home, who swore that he recieved them as a work gift. The best part of the story? Guess what was in the pants . . . no, just guess . . . it's frightful. . . there was fudge in those pants. Ugh.
What's next? Oh, don't tell me. I love the suspense.
