I'm sitting back with a nice glass (or 2 or 3 or a bottle) of whiskey. I plan on getting nice and mellow while watching Da Bears. I have been dealing with a clogged drain in the basement ever since I arrived. Mom had called the town about it over a month ago and had Senior Services deal with it. I don't know what they did, but whatever they did didn't solve the problem. I have been playing "track down the bureaucrat" for about a week. Finally I got a hold of the head guy today and he told me that someone would be out within the hour. Hooray! And so I waited...and waited...and waited. I called Mom to let her know that I wouldn't be visiting today because I was waiting for the Sewer Department. She was at least happy that something was being done. The end of the story was that no one showed up. I've had it. I'm just going to call a plumber and get this shit fixed. Adding to all of this, the weather turned crappy again. More clouds and rain. Joy! I'm sick of being alone! I'm sick of not having my Kitty by my side! I will loudly proclaim..."MEH!"
