this is a post by yoshi. i can’t seem to sign in as me on jozjozjoz’s blog, but i still have to post this right now:
there is a little elf in the basement. he’s blowing out the pilot on our water heater every so often. just when we get comfortable with our new 40-gallon water heater and nice, hot showers and clean clothes, he jumps out of his hiding place and *poof*–blows out the pilot.
dunno why this keeps happening. but i’m pretty sure it’s out. and it’s a new water heater with this nifty little window to look through to see the blue flame of the pilot if it’s on. all i saw when i was down there earlier was darkness.
i’m a take charge kind of person but i draw the line at working with gas or electricity. i’m still convinced the lights jozjozjoz strung on the windows are going to burn the house down.
so no laundry is getting done, and i refuse to take a cold shower. i’ll just sit and wait for the gas co. guy to show up.
UPDATE: i’m an idiot. apparently someone set the heater to “pilot” instead of “on” in the basement. like the heating guys. i blame them for not putting it back on “on”. fuckers made me look like a dumbass.
