Sleepless Sundays

I never sleep well on Sunday nights. Maybe it's because I'm obsessing about the coming workweek. Maybe it's due to my Sunday tradition of a nap + a large Diet Coke from Sonic. Regardless. Last night my sleeplessness was compounded by two factors.

Factor 1: Foghorn toilet. That's right, foghorn toilet, people. As we were drifting off to sleep, we kept hearing a loud, high-pitched sound coming from an undetermined location. Baby monitor? Nope. Humidifier? Nope. Finally we pinpointed the bathroom as the source of the sound. After some time consulting Google, we diagnosed the problem as foghorn toilet (something about air getting in the pipes and pressure building). So Justin turned off the water and drained the water from the tank (as Google instructed). Problem solved. Seriously.
Factor 2: True Blood. Man, I love this show, but it gives me some messed-up dreams. Last night every time I closed my eyes I saw poor Lafayette chained up in the basement of Fantasia. {Spoiler alert!} Did he seriously dig an artificial hip out of that dismembered leg? Shudder. He's going to make an awesome vampire, don't you think?

It's going to be a looooooooong day.

We didn't see last night's ep yet! But the first ep was seriously creepy.

Heinz drained both toilets in the bathrooms when I painted them. He said the seals were bad on the one in the half bath so he's going to have to fix it up. Foghorn toilet sounds ca-razy.
