Power Washing the Stress Away...
So it's been crazy at work lately, staying up late nights working on code, or kingfox and I spending a solid 36 hours at Drew working on the freshman image.. That's my excuse for not posting anymore.

So anyway, as has happened a few times in the past, the water supply in my building stopped working sometime around 10:00 tonight. By midnight, someone had come and fixed it, but when they did that, they somehow increased the water pressure in the building by an order of magnitude.

The shower is fucking incredible!

Seriously, the thing takes off several layers of skin. The water pressure in my apartment was always very good, but now setting the shower on full force feels like getting shot at. This isn't with one of those crazy new fangled massaging shower heads either; it's the standard crappy one. You can't handle this kind of pressure! It's awesome. I took a 40 minute shower. It was great. All of the stress is gone! I only hope that it lasts and this isn't a one time thing.

Also, this brings up a good point. If your looking for an apartment or house or whatever, make sure to test the water pressure. An otherwise perfect place to live just isn't worth it if the shower sucks. It will spoil your whole mood.

So it's not like this kind of shower head that for some reason always figures prominently in SkyMall Magazine?

off topic - yo at your next party, can we rent this? It looks hot.

Believe you me, every place that Pete and I have checked out, that's one of my first questions. I love high water pressure.

Oh yeah, now that we have this, I guess Paul can get a LJ now. And don't forget to collect your five codes.

The water pressure at our place is satisfactory, BUT...

The temperature you can reach at the top end of the hot side is fucking amazing.... I can actually cook in this water.... I mean it's hot enough that if I ran it over something I wanted to cook, I wouldn't even need to use the stove. Course that can be a BAD thing when you are groggy in the morning and turn the shower up to hot as it can go and forget and just get in.... mmmm... cooking yourself in the shower.... isn't that a wonderful idea?

If you have bad pressure, one of those tiny water-saving shower heads can really help.
