Listening to "Precious" by The Pretenders
The oven on Paragon has not worked since I arrived almost two years ago. Something to do with a spring and a thing and a boyfriend who never, ever bakes. Ever. And this was cool. I sautéed, simmered, and braised my way through through my cookbook much to my, and Drake's, delight. Curried chicken, moyakodon, and super spicy beans and rice were some of our staples. Then one day I had a craving for lasagna and suddenly nothing else would do. Not only did I want lasagna, but I wanted MY lasagna. Layers of gooey melted cheese combined with obscene amounts of garlic, spinach, mushrooms, chorizo and ground beef layered with spices and noodles and….oh my.

I went to the hardware store yesterday, got a couple of different bonding agents, and I think I found one that will work. It's called Pliobond (sticks to rubber, leather, steel, fiberglass, and your soul!) and smells sufficiently like cancer in a bottle to make me think it will work. It also mentions that it is resistant to salt, gasoline, and some acids which is a relief. I can't recall how many times I have left an open bottle of acid in the clothes locker only to have it tip over to disastrous results. (I am joking. I would never leave an open bottle of acid in the locker. I always close the acid before I put it in with my clothes.) The test piece seemed to hold so *fingers crossed* I'm going to give it a try and attack the aft locker. It would be lovely to finally get everything off of the bed and be able to sleep in the aft cabin again. We'll see how it goes…
