Peep, peep y’all

Still rocking the chicken hat.

I think I figured it out. I don’t like Japanese games. Clunky dialogue might be fun in a Godzilla movie, but you listen to hours of the stuff in a video game. Everything seems a little off.

Also, I don’t like games that give you a gun and then deduct points if you use it. Violent video games that get all twee about nonlethal takedowns are just not being honest about where the fun is.

In other news, Uncle B fixed the dishwasher today. This involved a lot of heavy lifting and great long strings of cursing. We’re doing a test run now, but I think it will hold. The last thing we wanted was to buy a new one right now.

Looks like the inlet pipe has been leaking water behind the cabinets steadily for months.

Water damage leaking down the walls of an old house (into the basement, if you have one) and weakening the foundation.

Over time, that’s a perfect recipe for a sinkhole.

No foundation. This pile dates from 15-something and is built on sand.

It’s sunk three feet down into the ground as it is.

well now the comment is completely wrecked.

I think I’ll leave it this way, it’s kinda the way the whole day has gone.

@ sweasel:

Is Badger House insured? The insurance company might pay for damages and repairs.

The thought of black mold would probably send me to a hotel. Except who goes to a hotel during a pandemic lockdown? ::shudder::

Good luck. I hope it all resolves quickly and cleanly.

Oh, it’s not urgent. There was damage, by the construction of the house is so primitive, there is no threat to the structure. There is a horrible modern cladding on the outside of the kitchen that will have to go, but eventually.

@ Armybrat

Thank you… it was the hashtags, wasn’t it?

Those three hashtags ARE a recipe for a perfect sinkhole!

Well done!

Speaking of hash tag sinkholes; now the conspiracy nutters are trying to drag the Queen into their OWO/Illuminati fever dreams with a disgusting blood libel.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
