Last day o August, and last day of summer as far as I'm concerned.. I know here in the Northern Hemisphere the change of the seasons is always around the 21st or thereabouts but I always consider them for the first of the month, you can disagree all you like but that how it is.. so.. starting tomorrow, we are in Autumn.

Demon is now officially exorcised, for once and for all. I can wash my hands of it, sleeping soundly in the knowledge that it shall not return.. I can clean stuff up properly, knowing it won't get all messed up again and.. this weekend we should be able to do whatever we want to do, and not have to wait around for a bunch of dudes to fix it again.

Can you believe it the weather gods got it right! Temporarily at least, and even on a Sunday which is unusually lucky. It's been hotter than hell the last week or so, which you may have heard about.. well, yesterday the temperature dropped to below hot, or just a bit too warm, or just warm enough, or kinda cool to being, well, cold... at least comparatively, and raining. Lots..

I mean I knew it would, it returned before after the fixit dude came and fixed it, and the last time he did much the same thing, and besides.. demons never really leave...
Yeah, demon is back. So tomorrow finally a proper excor.. I mean plumber is coming. Now hopefully this time.. it will for once and for all be gotten rid of.
It's particularly impolite of it to always show up on the weekend, though.. damn demon. Methinks it's doing it on purpose.

The internet. It's quite annoying, it's been blessing me with about an hour or 2 of working kinda ok a day all this week, and I never know when it's going to go out completely again, it's quite vexing.. but at least it's something for me to moan about as I've been relatively clear of big fucked up things recently.. after getting rid of the demon for once and for the moment.. I mean there's still the heat but I've more or less exhausted that subject.

And fuck is it hot! Really fucking hot.

And.. it got me. I've been doing these tours for a while, been in the underground.. the really spooky bit lots and lots of times, and sometimes with very small groups.. and I'm never actually scared myself, despite trying to convince others it's so damn scary but..

Been a pretty good weekend, despite having to work, and the ongoing battle of the demon which returned, did I mention that? Well it was banished again this morning so we'll see how that goes.. however, in spite of all this, we've had a pretty good time these past 2 days o the weekend.

So, the demon was exorcised.. the other day.. after an evening when they came in and fiddled around, which didn't achieve much except for make water run into the flat downstairs, they came back, did something else and after that everything went smoothly.

I shouldn't talk so soon but.. everything appears fine. Demon gone. There was a brief period where we thought this was going to be a long and bloody battle, the maintenance dude from the building came last night, I was out, working.. not the best night but not the point right now... and I came home and everything was apparently ok, with a date for him to come again today.

This demon is pissing me off. Haven't showered since.. er, the other day and will only be able to get myself basically clean before setting off to work tonight, which will set off a whole new mess in the bath, leaving it all fucked up, or me with a whole lot more work to get it halfway manageable for when the plumber/exorcist comes this evening. I know it shouldn't matter, it's his job to wade through gunk, but still... don't want to let it go too bad.

So, the demon is still in the pipes, still waiting for the plumber/exorcist to come by..

Morning not so hot.. got woken by a rather annoyed just out of shower dude asking me to buy some drain cleaner at some point.. thought the problem couldn't be that bad, yesterday there wasn't any problem at all.
Well.. when I went to shower, the fucking thing filled up like crazy right away.. weird, out of nowhere. And the toilet wouldn't flush. So.. I figured I'd go out, buy the stuff and shower properly later.
Well anyway, lest this story get way longer than it needs to, got back, poured the stuff down and it really didn't make much difference.. and the water I poured in just stayed hanging around, and then later it started coming out of the drain.. like, all this gunk and crap rose up into the bath..
I somehow figured that it was connected to the kitchen sink.. and the toilet is somehow involved which is not a nice thought.. and it still wouldn't flush properly.. also not a nice thought sorry to bring it up hope you weren't just about to have lunch :/
well.. I battled with this thing all day.. shoved my hand into the gunk in the bath, tried to clear it.. of course now there was drain cleaner in the mix so my hands started to sting.. eventually it wen t down.. and I managed to clean the place a bit. Then I washed my hands in the sink and it all bubbled up again..
well fuck. So.. I managed to get it all down again, and clean up, sorta... and it was possibly to quickly shower in semi-gunky waster up to my ankles before going out to this show n schmooze I'd been looking forward to somewhat clean.
And that was fine.. we went early, got a beer, drained it.. a slightly less popular brand called Demon.. fittingly.. and we quickly downed a second, had some dinner, and got another one just before the show began.
Well.. one of us felt a bit ill during the show and had to go immediately after.. just had too much to drink too quick.. and I stayed, drank.. and talked and acted stupid and drank more and stayed...
got home pretty late, or early if you put it that way which I don't because I hate when people say that. If you go home about 5am then it's still late.. just because it's early for the next day doesn't mean you're not getting home late.. but whatev.
Yesterday I felt the demons.. and said demons, or other demons were still in our pipes. It's like there's a trifecta or tri something of demon possession between these three things in the pipes. We've been, or rather he's been fucking around with it for 2 days.. and it still won't flush and the bath still gets clogged up in 5 seconds. Just gotta get a plumber to do it.
And I felt like crap, most of the day.. and regarding the phone calls I did get, that was me agreeing to work on Saturday night.. so.. about 6 I had to get my stinking ass.. well I managed to wash in just above ankle gunky water again.. to go to work. No tour though luckily.. and I was feeling much better by then.
Demons still in the pipes though.

Alright.. enough pissing about it's time to do stuff! yes.. I'm actually doing all that stuff that I'm supposed to be doing.. like, making lists of stuff that I'm going to get around to doing at some point and.. well.. I've done the list. *feels all proud and stuff* now I can have a rest.. and get on with the next stage when I... well I'll do that later at some point that doesn't matter.. the point is I've done stuff!!

So my ankle's still fucked up. Don't know if it's that bad but it's something that should last a while.. and I can't get anyone to cover my shift tonight, not a surprise because I'm doing a tour that only 2 other people do...
grrr.. this sucks. It can't be good for me.

So.. it's here. It's Monday, it's raining.. and raining and raining, I have a fucked up ankle from walking down my stairs while fucking with the phone yesterday before work.. then a 3 hour tour in the most rough cobblestoned area of Prague, and a run to the tram stop and my internet has been patchy up until right now and quite frankly, I don't see this little stretch lasting.
On the other hand.. I don't have to work tonight and I have a good excuse to not leave the house at all.. though my ankle isn't so bad right now.. internet is on (for now at least) and the sound of the rain pitter pattering outside is strangely soothing.
So there you go.
