Icy Thrones, Stubborn Showers, and One Mavs Loss

It all started with the Mavs loss last night. Something about that loss unleashed a series of rather unfortunate events.

First, a sinus attack decided to kidnap my nose's sanity and will not let go. Seriously, where does it all come from? How can one little nose produce that much havoc? I look like Rudolph. I swear, the dang thing is glowing. Hurts like heck, too--raw little s.o.b.

Somewhere between "I want to rip off my nose" and wanting to shove Kleenex in both nostrils, I got up to use the restroom--my water intake has been significant. Upon entering the bathroom, I heard an unsettling sound.

Drip, drip, drip.

Crap. A leak.


Drip, drip, drip.

Where are you, you little brat?

I couldn't find it, so I decided to go about usual bathroom business.

Drip, drip....ARGH!

I discovered the ice-cold devil-drip while in a rather compromising position, which I had to endure until I could get in a more appropriate stance to investigate.

Found the leak. Outside my bathroom window was a grouping of massive icicles, which dam. Wonderful. **Note: All fixed now...the guys came by and knocked down the icicles--it hasn't dripped since. So, here's hoping.**

Shower time: Ever been stuck in the shower...literally? I can now add this to my list of unwanted experiences. After showering, I pushed on the door, only to find it stuck. IT WOULD NOT OPEN. I didn't know what to do. I was quite literally stuck, in my birthday suit, in the shower. After unsuccessfully attempting to shoulder-slam the shower door (I don't recommend it), I stood, poised to karate kick the stupid thing down.

Just as I was about land the kick, the door popped open; it shocked the crud outta much so, in fact, that I stupidly stumbled over the step, flew out of the shower, lost my footing, and rammed into the counter. Dang door. I'm thinking I won't close it all the way from now on.

Mavs, I really need you to win.

Happy Friday!


  1. This is going to sound silly, but after twenty five years I’ve only just fully realized what ‘birthday suit’ means. I get there in the end.

  2. Awe. I'm sorry. That would freak me the heck out. I'm terribly claustrophobic. I don't follow teams, but I hope the Mavs win, for your sake. =]

  3. Aww.. :(
    I'm so sorry.. That's freaky, with the shower. Hope your sinuses clear out soon. Sending warm hugs. :) :)

  4. Drake: Thanks, you made me giggle and forget my stupid sinus issues...then I sneezed. Sigh.

    Stephanie: Ooooh, I hated it. I was slowly coming unglued. I have no clue what happened. It has gotten stuck before, but not like this. It was like something was holding it shut from the other side.

    PencilGirl: Freaky is the perfect way to describe the shower. I'm glad it popped open when it did because I was getting a little anxious. :/ Thank you--my sinuses and I have a love-hate relationship. Hugs right back to you. :)

  5. I think I would lose my mind if I got stuck in my shower. My mind would jump right to some ridiculous horror movie and you'd find me rocking naked in the corner just crying! Way to get aggressive with the thing! I'm sure the door popped open for fear of that karate kick! hehe.

  6. I totally understand the nose thing. I hate head colds - they make my nose attack my face to the point I want to rip it right off.

    I've never been stuck in a shower, although I imagine I'd freak out. I have been stuck in an elevator. However, I was fully clothed so . . . not quite the same thing. lol

  7. P.S. I've given you another award. :o)

  8. Saw you over at Averages Girl's blog!I've had my shower door stick before it's NEVER pleasant...

    oh and go Orlando Magic!
