Long live Prince

Miracle of miracles, the valve under the sink was fixed today!

I texted a friend who's a manager for a building company, asking her for a referral. She called me two minutes later and said she had a handyman (who happened to be her boyfriend's uncle) in the area and if I called him right away, he could probably get it done today. Needless to say, I jumped on it. It's done and the new installation date is scheduled for next Monday.

The guy was a character, though. He's got a band on the side, and when he walked in and saw my guitar and our piano, he started chatting away. When he asked about my guitar, I pulled it out to show him and he went a little nuts, lol. Next thing I know, he's playing and I'm getting serenaded with "Purple Rain." He was actually really good, but it made me laugh enough to call my friend afterward. I told her the story, and she laughed and said, "Yep. That's him."

He does a ton of different stuff, though, and at the end of the day, his rates are very reasonable and I liked him, so we're going to have him back for more work.

And oh! Thank you so much for telling me I wasn't being selfish about wanting a birthday party! I talked to Alicia this morning about it, and she's 200% on board. "All I need is a theme and a guest list," she said. We batted around a lot of ideas and settled on "Back to the 80s." Two hours later, she texted me and said, "I have a Pinterest board and a half dozen ideas for invitations already. Why did you do this to me right before finals?!?" She's just as excited as I am. :)
