Well the tale of my bathroom remodel has at least gotten funnier.

1. Turn breaker to bathroom off. done

2.  Drill hole in wall through plaster lathing. done

3. Grab wires to wrap... started but not finished.

4. Realize that this particular light fixture is on a completely different breaker. Done the hard way.

5. Pick self up off floor and giggle uncontrolably from near death experience...done.

I know go in search of the next appropriate breaker holding a light bulb in my hand that I can light solely from the remaining charge in my body.

If I don't post in an hour I am probably dead... Tell my wife I loved her and it is her fault I am dead for not letting me hire an electrician

I kid... Don't tell her I already have.

Yeah I've lit myself up a few times... I'm getting better at NOT burning...

The 220 Water heater in Florida did it good though. No giggling, just sat there stunned for a few seconds... Wife said I made a noise that's how she new something was up...

Actually, I was never into drugs. I have been working in Healthcare for over 12 years now. I never would have made it past the multiple drug screens.

This name was from when I was in High school... a long, long time ago. I think it is time I change it but I don’t know what to change it too.

Suggestions anyone? (you can be rude as long as it is funny)
