Marsh living

The people upstairs shower all the time. Well, we assume they're showering. All we really know is that their water runs full force for 20 minutes or so at least 5 times a day.

This is weird, but until this morning, it was innocuous enough.

This morning, we woke up to rain. No, not rain. A deluge -- a veritable waterfall -- in the doorway of our bathroom. It sounded like our shower was on. After throwing some pots and pans down, we noticed that there were also puddles forming under the refrigerator and in the bathroom sink.

Then we noticed that our hallway light fixture is entirely full of murky, dirty water.

Now, I have about a 6th grade understanding of science. However, I suspect that water + electricity = BAD!

We called the fucking maintenance pager at 10 and again at 11. No response. It is our only recourse. Our carpeted hallway is utterly squishy. We dare not turn on the hall light for fear that we will die in a crispy, over-cooked kind of way.

And only in my world does all this shit happen on Super Bowl Sunday. Call me a pessimist, but I think the swampiness will continue until Monday, at the earliest.

That is soggily all. (fasterthanlight, that construction is too brilliant and versatile not to steal!)
