My bathroom sink is clogged. It won't drain. Two bottles of Liquid Plumber later, and the thing still won't empty. I've been forced to wash my face at night in the kitchen sink, and if you've seen my kitchen sink you'd be grossed out, too. Last night was really traumatic for me, though. I was all lathered up in the kitchen, and the faucet was running so that I could splash water on my face to rinse off. But I must have accidently bumped the drain-plug and filled the sink with water as I was washing because when I went to rinse off my face, I felt something strange on my cheek. Fearing it was a dead bug or a spider (always my worst nightmare and therefor my first assumption) I opened my eyes, braving the stinging soap, to discover that it was a cooked half-eaten macaroni noodle from dinner that must have arisen from the dark depths of the sink drain. I couldn't decide if that was worse than a dead bug or not, but I'm kind of a neat freak, so either way it was REALLY unpleasant.
This kind of thing really makes me feel unsettled. I gotta get that bathroom sink fixed.

I live in an old place and my bathroom faucets break every few months. So the hot faucet is broken and so is the kitchen drain. I've been drinking out of the cold faucet in the bathroom. I need to get my shit fixed too.

here's a little suggestion to clear the drain. Take a coat hanger and unbend it so it's straight with just a small hook and the end. Shove it down the drain and drag out whatever is clogging the drain.
-including dead bugs and spiders.

Macaroni is worse.Not worse than cream of wheat on your finger which happens to me way to often.Saucy or goopy food that gets placed on me by Michael is almost intolerable.I must be the best mom,fufilling all his needs, because if he gets yogurt on his hand or any food for that matter a look of disgust crosses his face and then he wipes it on me.I find it intolerably gross and nice for him to feel so taken care of all at the same time.

Have you tried using a plunger on it? I know it sounds kinda gross, cause plungers are supposed to only be for toilets or something, but seriously.... it works. I had to plunge my kitchen sink a few weeks ago after thinking it would be a good idea to grind up lots and lots of flower stems in my disposal and get them down the drain. Don't try that. Not a good idea.

How is it that you proclaim yourself a "neat freak" but have a clogged bathroom sink (from god knows what) AND half-eaten macaroni in your kitchen sink? If that's neat, what's dirty? And don't blame it all on K-mack, birds of a dirty feather dude. Birds of a dirrrty feather...
PS Don't get me started on that bio-hazard you called a pillow the last time I was over. I've seen bums sleep cleaner "pillows."

It was Dan's macaroni, so I wouldn't be blamed for that, but I will be blamed for the bathroom clog, it's apparently MY hair that's clogging it up, I'm gonna need to see the results from some DNA testing, it can't all be mine.

B*Dub makes a good point. You should buy new pillows every year. Your sick.
By hot babe, at 2:08 PM
I've since replaced those pillows that B* speaks of, so no worries, and seeing as how I clean out handfuls of K-Mack's hair from the bathroom sink every morning definitively proves that she is at the root of the sink blog, pun intended.
By the way, that plunger idea didn't work. Now there is just a bunch of dislodged sewage in the sink, which is still clogged.

ummmm... sorry that whole plunger thing didn't work. but at least it was worth a shot before calling a plumber, right?

Here's a suggestion:
Go to google, type in clogged sink, buy a wrench, fix it.
oh wait wait a better suggestion
whine about it on your blog, you ineffective pussy
