So this morning, I turned on the water for the shower and squinted at the odd flurry of activity around the faucet. Not having my glasses on, I had to get quite close before I saw all the ants running in and out of the tiny crack between the faucet and the tile. Oh well, I said to myself, there are usually a few ants in the shower, no big deal. I splashed them away and pulled the little doohicky to divert the water to the shower head.

For a brief but intensely horrible second, the shower ran ants intead of water.

Then, later, the bottom element on the oven stopped working, and there is nothing sadder than bread dough that's been a 100 degree oven instead of a 350 degree one. The oven is a new-fangled one that doesn't have fuses, just a digital display that is blinking "F3." I miss fuses. You knew where you were with fuses. So I tried to bake in the bread machine, but apparently I got distracted by something shiny while measuring the liquids because that loaf came out with the dimensions of a cabbage and the density of plutonium.

And then I was spraypainting some terrain pieces and had a lapse of reason about the purpose of the little arrow on the nozzle. So now I look like a very dainty chimneysweep.

I think I'm just going to bed.

    That is one of the best bad-day stories I've heard in a long time. Wasn't there a B-movie about the ants in the shower? I fully sympathise about the insect issue - we don't have an ant problem here, but the summer cicadas can span a small coffee cup.
    You might (or might not) want to have a peek inside the walls with a borescope, see if you need to call someone. Post photos!
