Okay, so my water heater went out on Friday. Again. Seriously. AGAIN.
I didn't shower on Friday, and I'm pretty cranky when I don't get to stand in hot water for hours on a Saturday.
And, dude, water heaters are not cheap. So I wasn't real happy about replacing ours. AGAIN.
I keep saying again. See, we'd just replaced our water heater a year or two ago. I spent a couple of hours on Friday morning (before work, sans shower) trying to find the invoice or duplicate check.
Of course I couldn't. Small pieces of paper and I are not friends. They hate me. I hate them.
Anyway, I knew it'd only been a couple of years, and I knew it had been cold (because when you're standing in your garage shivering, praying hoping pleading the pilot light will stay on, you remember).
But I couldn't find the small pieces of paper.
So what did I do?
I remembered I'd blogged about it. And I went to blogger, and I looked up the post. And I can tell you that I replaced my water heater on March 27, 2009.
And again on March 5, 2011.
Who needs money anyway? Or hot water for that matter? As long as you have blogger, you're good.
Have you ever used blogger for something, uh, unconventional?
