Happy New Year!

Well, not quite yet, I guess, but I don’t know if I will get a chance to update again tonight, so….

My trip up to Boston was pretty uneventful yesterday. has the flu, so I have been keeping my distance from her as to avoid infection. Last night I went to ‘s place to hang out with him and . I figure that needed the rest, and I was less likely to get sick if I wasn’t here. I hadn’t seen Matt in ages, and it’s always a blast to hang with Adam, especially when he is cranked out on sugar cookies and Hostess Cupcakes.

Matt introduced me to the glory of Mario Kart: Double Dash, a game which I am now going to HAVE to purchase. Of course, that will mean that I am also going to want the ‘cube Broadband adapter so I can play it online over Warp Pipe. This will obviously have to wait until I get some cash.

I ran some errands for coco today, and also got the hardware to replace the guts of her toilet tank, which was running. She had the old-school arm/ball valve, so I replaced it with one of the more modern “floating canister” ones, as well as replaced the flapper. It doesn’t run anymore and works like a champ. I had originally planned on just replacing the flapper, since that is why it was running, but it was $5 for a new flapper, and $10 for an entire kit to replace everything. I figured a bit of preventative replacement was in order.

There’s a party at Eric’s tonight, but I may bail on it if coco is still feeling really sick. She was saying she’d be up for it this morning, but I think the reality of the situation is much different from her perception. :)

  1. is it easy (and cheap) to change all the parts in the toilet? because ours runs occasionally. not much, but it’s been like that since we moved in. kind of annoying, and probably wasteful.

    1. To clarify with detail:

      The “Toilet Tank Repair Kit” I got from K-Mart cost 11 bucks, and it took me about 10 minutes to install. I had watched this done before, so it might take you a bit longer, but even so, it isn’t at all difficult.
