I finally have an oven!

For those of you who don’t know, when I was moving in, my parents realized that the heating element in my oven was broken. Me being the Doubting Thomas that I can be, decided to turn the oven on to verify for myself that it was not working. (but really, how could it, with that BIG separation right in the side section of the element!) I proceeded to turn on the oven, and waited for a good 5 to 7 minutes. Then I casually reached in and tapped the element to see if it was hot. It didn’t seem to be, so I grabbed it tightly between my finger and thumb. Well, SHOCKINGLY enough, they were right, it didn’t work! But apparently electricity still travels UP TO the broken area! That sure woke me up! Well, I informed my landlord, and almost a week has gone by. I was on the phone last night with Jeff, kind of bitching about how nothing had been done or mentioned to me, when suddenly our call got disconnected. Well, luckily it was, because as I was calling him back, there was a knock at my door. It was my landlord, holding a brand new heating element, with an electrician to install it! Roughly 5 minutes later, all was working great!Unfortunately, I was also testing out the central air at the time (which works great by the way), and was told “OK, now just leave the oven on for a good while to burn off any chemicals or sealants they use”. Oh well, it took a little longer to test the central air because of that, but I am happy to report that everything is working great now!
