Fun stuff first: Eleanor just found out that her Invader Zim vid got an Honorable Mention in the vid competition at the convention!
That is so cool. Very proud. Considering she sent it to them the day before the con, they were very kind to consider it at all.
And the fan girls got Andy Berman to say, in Dib's voice, 'I love you, Zim!' at a panel which E has just incorporated into her new vid, heheh. They had the Zim/Dib puppets kissing too. ZADR rules! :-)) (Zim and Dib Romance, apparently)
The flood has been conquered. David managed to come home around 2.00 and we bought 12 ft of copper pipe (Rona kindly cut in in half so we could get it in the car) and we spent a couple of hours replacing all the old pipe on the wall that seems to keep springing the leaks. David's got a metallurgy degree so playing around with blowtorches and solder is fun, Fun, FUN! Until some of the flux stuff dripped on him.
My arms are killing me from holding up pipe near the ceiling but fingers crossed, all is fixed.
I forgot to say that we got a new mattress yesterday. Not that I have to say, but it's often useful to write these things down. Our old one was 14 years old and David and I kept waking up feeling like the Tin Woodman sans oil.
So in a speedy shopping expedition, we bought one, just like that, returning to the first shop, as you do, and it got delivered the very next day.
It is astonishingly high. Seriously, a foot higher. And I bought new pillow which are Everest high too. The girls stared at it in awe and predicted we'd fall out of bed and break things. I pointed out that since we never do fall out of bed, why would we start now, but they were unconvinced.
It's all stuffed full of latex and memory foam and it sort of engulfs you so turning over is a workout but it's very comfy.
Okay, I'm shattered. Off to watch NCIS with an ice-cold vodka and coke...
