Ahh Mondays. How sweet you are.

Woke up this morning headed to the garage to grab a morning drink when I heard hissing and it was raining. Lo and behold the Water Heater Expansion Tank sprung a pinhole leak at the top and was spraying water for who knows how long.

Can't even take a shower this morning.

For those who are curious is the blue thing in the pic.

That sucks a powerful amount of undefined things.

Definitely not one of those moments you can stick your finger in it and it'll plug the problem. We have one of those things in the attic, but it's red and has a giant steel band round it which is bolted to a roof beam to stop it from moving about too much.

Honestly I am thankful that it didn't seem to be spraying the garage for more than a few hours and that the local hardware store has replacements that are easily put into place.

Still no gas/heat/hot water after 2.5 weeks... it's starting to get really fucking cold dammit.

And again, for something completely different:
I might have a slight problem of the addiction type

And that's just the new ones I got in the last 2 weeks when the wife let me go out shopping without adult supervision. There are a 1-2 more I got a while ago on a similar occasion.

Strange that I see HotWheels all over YouTube (racing and modding) but we got non in the shops apart from a couple of ugly plastic speedracer types. Siku and Majorette are the main brands here now, which I don't really mind as both feel much higher quality, especially the later with proper suspension and opening doors. Matchbox seems to be MIA as well, when did that happen?

If you don't mind me asking what's the hold up on replacing/fixing the current water heater? If there's someone dragging their feet on this just throw up the beer signal and you'll most likley have a lot of testies show up to help out. Or beat the shit outta someone whatever gets the results faster.

If you are thinking about the water heater posted at the top, that's Mr. @Bambooza 's heater, not mine. My heater is fine.

If you are referring to my issue, it's a bit more complicated. Firstly, I live in Hungary which is under covid lockdown, so TESTies wouldn't be able to come in and help me out with "correcting" the issue using long wooden instruments on certain individuals. God, it would be a fun exercise, and it would keep me warm lol

We have two 5 story apartment buildings on one plot, I live in the second one. The gas line had to be replaced on the common grounds and inside the other building as there were leaks popping up. We were told it would take 3 days, but as I was expecting it, it will take roughly a month, if all goes well. We had no time to prep either, as we were only warned 2 days (weekend) before they started work cutting the gas flow. So now we are waiting on the contractor to finish up the last few metres of pipe and for the utility company to check it over, do the pressure test and turn gas back on. The contract says Oct. 7th as the finishing date, so there's not much we can do right now.

The whole thing should have been done in June, but our "joint representative " or whatever it's called in english, didn't organize anything on time. We sacked him, got a new jr, and this new one had to act fast cos some schmuck from the other building went to the gas ppl and ratted us out. The gas ppl told us they would cut off our gas if they ever had to show up again, and that would have been a real bitch to deal with. Oh, and as it turns out, the guy we sacked has embezzled 3million Huf (10K USD) of our money, half the cost of the repairs, so we had to pay through our nose to not have gas for a month lol.
The joys of living in an apartment building....

At least you're buying stuff that you can actually hold in your hands, unlike the rest of us.

I am sure with enough paper in our passports we would be allowed in. Then again we are Test so as long as we wear our shirts we should be welcomed at the gate with cold beers. But that sucks not having gas for more than a few days.

Very true, as long as those papers read 100ERUO on em lol
Also, cold beer is the one thing I can surely provide. And I don't even need to use the fridge for that in this weather :D
TBH today was nice, finally some warmth outside, but tomorrow night we are getting a halistorm with the cold coming in, not gonna enjoy that...

Canadians eh?


My favorite part was.

Even in the use of “eh” as a criticism or a command, the word seeks to find common ground. If I say “you’re an idiot, eh?”, what I’m saying is, you’re an idiot, but you should also think you’re an idiot, and our understanding of you as an idiot finds us on common ground.

Everything is pretty much correct, eh? I had to laugh at the part,
Like where someone else would make a strong statement, we undermine it a little, because we want to be friendly and inclusive,” she says. “I don’t know how much of that is true.”
Yes, because "Fuck off, eh?" is so much more friendly sounding. It's something I still say. And I never met anyone who said "a-boot", usually it sounds more akin to a-boat.
