My plans to do dishes have been thwarted by the cold water pipe for the kitchen sink freezing. On the one hand, I don't have to do dishes. On the other hand, I have a kitchen full of dirty dishes. Of course, I suppose I could just do things with hot water. I think hrafn might have left the rubber gloves, so I could protect my hands from the hot water. Hmm, we'll see, I guess. On hrafn's advice, I opened one of the doors in the basement that leads to the unheated area. I hope that unfreezes the pipe soon.

Slept for a while, had a phone call, thought I would get up, then slept for a while more. I really was all ready to at least start on the dishes. Bah. I guess I can clean my room a bit. I hope to feel productive enough with cleaning this afternoon that I can feel okay just relaxing this evening. I think I've decided to stay home and watch my new DVD, The Professional. If anyone is planless and would like to come by to watch it, that would be fine.

You should also try running the hot water for a while. Generally the proximity of the of the hot water pipes to the cold will, with the hot water running, allow the the cold to thaw from the heat eminating from the hot.

This is, in fact, what I ended up doing, except by accident. I decided just to do some dishes anyway, so I did two sinkfulls of dishes with only hot water. And now the water works again!! Woo!!
