So this is what happens in this old Stalinka sometimes

What you see here is a kitchen sink full of sludge. To be precise, this is a kitchen sink full of sludge after some extensive cleaning efforts – so you can imagine just how much sludge was originally there. The sludge was also on the floor.

The pipes were being cleaned – and so I got a nice present waiting for me when I got home yesterday. Nothing says “happy Friday” quite like sludge, I think. The downstairs neighbours got it even worse.

(And yeah, yeah – I need to get this sink replaced – not that it would affect the occasional sludge-fests all that much – I need to do a lot of things to this place. Such as buy it out, for example. Anyone who cares to send ideas my way should also send money.)

  1. oh, lord. I’m so sorry. Did Alex tell you about our khruschyoba plumbing issues? I came home from work last year to find six inches of *nasty* scummy water on our kitchen floor. We had just gotten most of it bailed out when it flooded again. When the zhek plumbers finally came a couple of hours later, they just laughed at us for being foreigners who intentionally came to Russia.
