I’m waiting for the plumbers to call. We’ve got a clog in the lines somewhere and water backing up from under the basement toilet when we flush upstairs.

Me too. That's why I'm ready to abjure the weekend and go to work where I can rest up.

You dont need to remove the toilet to snake.

You can go from the toilet,,,or failing that the outside cap.

90 pct of the time you wont even get dirty.

I’m sure it will be fine. Scary. We had a guy come looking for his estranged wife (who works here) this spring, then started stabbing himself.

He came in right through the front entrance. The other entries have turnstiles that require a badge to open. They will likely put on there as well.

The NYPD often effectively abjures the notion that "only the police should be armed".

Two bystanders struck by NYPD cops opening fire on suspect near Times Square

In their efforts to shoot an unarmed man who was "acting erratically" they manage to shoot two bystanders.

Shot two bystanders.

If the toilet was clogged, I might try with the metal snake I have. But this is the main sewer line under the house. He’s going in with the power tools.

I thought Walt, Jr acted like a pussy.

Still not sure why Walt would blab on the phone like he has in the past two weeks. My wife thought he might have been trying to lay down legal absolution for Skyler and talking like that on purpose last night. I can’t tell any more.

Late to class today because it’s my birthday. Normally I abjure birthdays, but this is a biggie. One of my daughters sent the most beautiful flowers over the weekend, and I’m taking a Tres Leches cake to work as my “birthday treat” for the staff.

I didn’t bake it — I bought it at Cosco and it looks luscious. It has a caramel glaze over the top. I could not find anything like it among the hundreds of photos of Tres Leches on the Web. Several layers with filling between the layers.

So, I won’t be abjuring cake today. With our small staff, I figure that we’ll each get 2 pieces.

Very clever of me, don’t you think? Today is one of a couple of Mexican Independence Days, and I’m bringing a Mexican dessert!

http://www.food.com/recipe/tres-leches-cake-11619

From the recipe above: “Tres Leches Cake is a very moist cake filled with a mixture of “milks.” It is a favorite Mexican and South American Dessert. I got the recipe from Chela, my housekeeper who is from Mexico. The Cake preparation includes 3 parts: the cake, the filling, and the frosting.”

From what I read, the name comes from using milk in 3 different parts of the cake. Mine does not have fruit on it. Just the caramel glaze and a big, flaky piece of chocolate. It’s very pretty.
