I am amateur plumber, hear me roar!

Have you ever heard of a ballcock assembly? Yea, me too but did you know that the doohickey that shoots water into the back of a toilet is call that as well?

Now imagine going into a Canadian Tire and asking if they could point you to the ballcocks. Could you do it with a straight face? I couldn't. I am rarely accused of being mature and this was way beyond me. So I saved my dignity and wandered around until I found what I was looking for.

Good news the downstairs bathroom is back in normal working order and I am now the self appointed Queen of Ballcocks!

My only excuse for that bit of sillyness was my mood at the time. I was riding a europhic high being able to fix the toilet thus saving myself a ton of cash. Also there was the added bonus that my hubby's reaction was "the bathroom is broken, who should we call?"
I did it all by myself...well ok my brother was the one who told me that doohicky is called a ballcock *giggle*

And a road trip to BC sounds like a great tax write off to me! if not there is always fodors and websites *sigh* That's the way i have been vicariosly visiting Nevada and Brazil for settings in two of Marissa's WIP's

OMG Thank you so much Maureen. You know I completely forgot about Fordors! *smacking forhead* I've been scouring the Vancouver airport website this evening trying to get an 'eye' for it and where my character will be.
I'll have to take a trip to Chapters on Monday.
