More Appliance Woes

We have a couple things that are starting to fritz. The telly has been going for years. It just goes black for no reason. (well, yeah, there's prolly a reason - cracked circuit board, loose connection, whatever) You have to hit it on the right side, and it'll come back to life. Toaster - same. Element quits working, give it a bang on the side. One of our monitors was like that over the summer - needed a sharp smack on the right side. We did replace that. Hmmm - seems there was one more. Maybe not.

I got a sharp smack on the right shin at some point during sparring. I don't remember it happening, but I remember what must have been shortly after it happened. I was waiting after a Kalyo for a start again and thinking "holy crap my shin hurts" and wondering if I could kick with that leg, LOL! Ow!!!! It's a lumpy bruise with nice little lines from the fabric of the sparring pad, LOL! I felt pretty decent during sparring considering, but didn't have my normal speed. So it goes.

I found a bag of cheetos from our WI trip. They're a LOT skinner than MI Cheetos. Weird. Deep thoughts for you this evening. Off I go. . .

Stuff around my house is breaking too. Just in time for my husband to leave me for a few months to fend for myself.

Oh, don't you HATE that?! The first night after my dh left for a 5 week deployment to VA, one of the smoke alarms went off - blaring, not just chirping - at 1 am. It wouldn't turn off (no smoke anywhere though) and I finally ended up ripping it out of the ceiling. As I stood there, triumphant, with the thing in my hand, it gave a chirp. AAAAAAGHH!!! At that point, I wrenched open the garage door and pitched the smoke alarm OUT!! :o) The next day I bought a battery one at Walmart and installed it, and that night the one in the BASEMENT went off. AAAAAARGH!!

I hope you can get your automated friends fixed before your dh goes. :o) (oh - wait - I didn't mean a BOB or anything, though it kinda sounds like that) Of course, when the stuff is just *starting* to go, it's hard to justify replacing it, and hard to pinpoint the problem, too. Grrrr!

I got hubby to fix a light in the kitchen the other day. Oh yes, I will be triumphant!
