Peeing complex!
So, last night was the second time I've strolled into the bathroom to pee... and the toilet overflowed. Last time was juuuust far enough away that I had stopped worrying about it as a possibility.

This time, at least, I darted over to turn the water off, which was a much better reaction than the first time of me running out of the bathroom and yelling for my fiance to do something.

Seriously, I'm starting to develop a complex here!

I don't suppose there's some special Toilet Drain-O out there that I don't know about that will magically fix this from ever happening again, is there?

And on a completely non-related topic (we hope): HAPPY HALLOWEEN.

I know I say this every year, but...

Please please PLEASE keep your cats indoors tonight. Especially if you have a black cat. But even if your kitty is lighter in color, it doesn't guarantee some sick bastard(s) won't do something awful.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

Toilets overflowing...*pushes away traumatic flashbacks*

Along with mouse infestation, definitely the worst household problem, at least to me. I don't know how many times the toilet at the duplex overflowed. It was constantly happening. We tried this crazy stuff with metal shards and other dangerous items in it, which I think worked sometimes. There are products out there that may help. I would keep track of when and how often it happens, and the circumstances (i.e. only a little bit of toilet paper in there) so that you can ask the management for a new one if it continues.

Starting a toilet log... words you never thought you'd hear... ever.

Re: Cats

And as *I* say all the time... leash laws in pretty much every jurisdiction in the U.S.A. apply to cats, too, so you should be keeping your animals inside all year long, not just tonight. And in some countries, like New Zealand, it's perfectly okay to shoot the pests on sight if they're out wandering sans owner. Ah, gotta love the Kiwis.
