The toilet in our bathroom broke late Thursday night -- something in the flushing mechanism snapped -- so I had to wait all morning and half the afternoon for the plumber on Friday, and when he arrived, he needed to turn the water off to the entire house, so I made Paul come home because he piles all sorts of crap in the storeroom that makes getting to the water valves impossible. I was already sleepy and grumpy after staying up too late to watch the Ravens humiliate themselves in Denver (at least the Orioles won today 4-0, though the Nats lost 7-0).

I got Valjean/Javert earrings in the mail, posted a review of Deep Space Nine's "Nor the Battle to the Strong, which remains excellent, and saw three bunnies before we went to my parents' for Rosh Hashanah dinner leftovers, which were also excellent. Then we stopped at the food store to get fruit for Adam's track meet tomorrow, came home and watched the Dateline episode about last year's Everest disaster, then caught up on this week's very upsetting Broadchurch -- excellent as well. Here are some of the animals we saw at the Maryland Renfaire last weekend:
