If I do say so myself, I am getting pretty awesome at fixing stuff around the house. Toilets are a breeze, anymore. This isn't the first time I've had to maintain the garage door. The dryer is a cake-walk. I fixed that pesky "if you turn on the bathroom sink water to a certain point, it shuts itself off" issue months ago. If anyone ever needs help or advice on stuff like this (plumbing, home mechanics, et c.) don't be afraid to call (but also don't expect a certainty of successful response on my part). If I don't know it off-hand, I also have a ton of home improvement books that might (though I haven't yet had to call them into play).
Next project: re-wire the house to implement three-prong plugs rather than the two-prongers currently in abundance here (this is where said books will come in very handy).
