"Washington DC, the chocolate city with a marshmallow center."

if you haven't seen Stephen Colbert at the Washington Press Corps dinner, you are missing out. It's at onegoodmove.org and youtube.

thursday, i moved a hot water heater about four feet. it was my first time sweating copper pipe. it didn't leak. i was quite proud of myself.

today, i went back and tried to put in two faucets. it kept leaking. i did it three times and finally had to get a "real" plumber to finish it. turns out i was doing everything right, but the flux i bought today was caca. grrr. i can't charge the guy i did the work for since he had to pay the plumber.

at least i learned something, but damn, it was infuriating.
