A new profession for me?

For some reason, there is an open pipe in the crawl space under my house, it was attached to a sink the previous owners installed in the garage, but now it's just hanging out down there. I just ignored it because it was out of the way and causing no problems. Until a couple of days ago....

Now it looks like this when I do laundry....

And this was my attempt at fixing the problem...

And this is what happens when you just make the problem worse...
(that's a towel soaking up the flood in the laundry room from that pipe backing up and shooting out the drain, better than a toilet overflowing I guess ;) )

Jealous? I thought so :P

(I just tried drano to see if that's enough, stay tuned.....)

Edited to add....FAIL

I guess we get to stimulate the economy by hiring a plumber :P

I park in the free parking at school, it's about 1/2 mile to the school, which isn't too bad. I do ride the shuttle bus if the weather is bad, otherwise I just walk. The first time I rode the shuttle, I was one of the last ones on, which meant I had to stand and hold the bar overhead. Not a big deal for most people, but I'm short and along with that are short arms, lol. I ended up having to stand between some guys legs the whole time. Oh so enjoyable for me :P. so I've only ridden it twice since then, lol.

Picture proof, sorry for the crappy photo, it was with my cell phone while we were moving.

If you look at the arm with the two white stripes around the bicep, that is a girl that is probably 2 inches taller than me, can you see how stretched out her arm is? Yeah, rude that guys don't give us shorties a seat!

Easily amused.

I found out about from a friend and fell in love with it right away. I currently have three "stations" on there, country, Enya type stuff (so soothing, love it), and today I added a Bon Jovi station. It has been so much fun listening to all the "hair bands" and love ballads that I constantly listened to in High School and beyond :).

I guess I needed some cheering up after waking up to the mountain of clean laundry needing to be folded and the snow falling outside, arg.

I do have 3 posts planned in my head, so hopefully I get around to them soon :)
