Epic Fail Weekend

hey everyone, I would just like to share with you the story of my EPIC FAIL weekend for those of you who have read my past few posts this might seem familiar.
I come home from football to find my diy co2 sucked into my tank I do a 60% wc on my 75 gallon tank with a medium gravel vac and two buckets that alone should win me an oscar, but the fact that I had to bring a hose from outside thru my window turn on the icy water and add hot water via frantic buckets full of bathtub water to equalize the temp deffinately wraps it up. I almost forgot, i'm watching two dogs this weekend and somehow someway during the midst of all this I left the door open and they escaped. then I was sitting here thinking hmmmm, I' should clean out my filter, so I unplug it and inadvertently open it.....imagine hurricane katrina in your basement. Then to top it all off I have to syphon the filter with my mouth b/c the pump is broken , nothing like a nice refreshing mouthful of fish crap and other unspeakably horrible things...so yea just thought I would share that with you all, maybe if you are having a bad day this will help in knowing someone is too.
