Work Around The Apartment

Now that’s some Sunday sweat & dust. Got some electrical work done at my home. Living room switch board, where we have the tv, Asianet digital box & dvd player plugged in, needed to get two sockets replaced. And in my bedroom the switchboard is quite old, having been placed in way before we moved in to the apartment. Luckily for me the electrician who had come in to check a couple of days ago was able to come on a Sunday with replacement parts. So I have a brand new switchboard in my room and an additional 3 pin socket (I only had one earlier).

The next thing was my fan. I had a new fan installed 2 years ago but the past few months it had become quite slow. The capacitor needed to be changed (not that I knew how or that itself was the problem). The fan that was quite slow is now superfast – imagine a turtle and then think of Speedy Gonzales or The Road Runner! And then yell out “¡Ándele! ¡Ándele! ¡Arriba! ¡Arriba! ¡Epa! ¡Epa! ¡Epa! Yeehaw!” or “Beep beep” – depending on which quick cartoon character you envisioned. However the fan, which hasn’t been cleaned for a long, long time, was covered in dust and so the technician used an old sheet that I gave him to clean the blades. All that dust covered my sheets on my bed, which was ok since I was going to change them today anyway. Once he was done I took the dust covered bedsheets and tossed out the dirt and then put the sheets for washing. Then it was a broom & pan to clean up the floor and a mop with cleaning liquid to clean out the floor.

Once the guy finished I paid him and then went in for a long shower to clean off the dust and sweat. Ahh feel so good to sit under the newly improved & powerful fan. Nice. I’ll probably drift off to sleep!

  1. I love sitting by the fan – it is awesome. Have you ever sung into it? Makes you sound like a rock star. Enjoy it!

  2. Yeah the pedestal fans. Not in recent memory though. I have a ceiling fan because without those it’s really a terrible place to live in
