I did a thing

We moved into our new home about a year ago (I write those words, and am shocked at how the time flies. Escapes really.) In all that time we have been meaning to replace the seat on the first floor toilet. The previous owners had a toddler who was in the middle of toilet training and they had one of those toddler toilet seat combo thingies. They took that with them when they moved and had put a cheapo plastic seat in it's place, which is fine and no big deal and we were not complaining. But the thing never really fit right and was always a bit loose.

Well, today, this situation was finally rectified with a snug fitting Bemis model 400. Can't go wrong with a Bemis. It's got locking twist off hinges for easy cleaning.

The dude (well no, not that one...) helped me install it:

But he made me use his toy screwdriver, he called the real one:

Fixing the toilet seat 002

Nice of him to help though. Of course right after the installation process was successfully completed, a "Live Fire" test was required:

All systems were fully integrated and functioned within normal parameters. Was nice and comfy too. (please note that I have refrained from making any "bombs away!!" jokes)


While finding links for this article I stumbled across this interesting and frequently disturbing Harper's event index.

Also, go here and have a look around, I was particular intrigued by the barbed wired model.

Anyway, we got a new toilet seat.
