Does This Door Suck, Or What?

I know I said I was taking the day off today, and I am. And I know I said I wasn't going to bitch about the door for a while, and I won't. But I have to just say this...

Apparently it doesn't matter whether I bring the thing inside or not. If it rains outside, this magic door gets wet, even if it's inside. Look!

See the dark parts? Those are where I was squirting it yesterday -- but it was dry when I brought it in last night, I swear. I thought it was stain, or water-stain, and I thought it was odd that it seemed darker this morning (which I assumed would mean drier) than it was fourteen hours ago (when, okay, it might have still been just a little damp). But when I took a closer look, I saw a sheen. And when I touched it, it was slick.

The reason it's actually not raining today like they predicted apparently has something to do with the fact that my door is sucking all the moisture out of the air.

I'm not bitching. I'm just saying.

Anon.

This is quite the epic battle getting that door finished :) Maybe it was made out of a divining rod - but is attracting water to it, rather than leading you to water.

Try to enjoy your day off!

okay so it doesn't really apply.

maybe you too can have a disese named after you (or a phenomenon -doot, doot, dootie, d-dootie)...

Charlie: "doot, doot, dootie, d-dootie"? It took me a minute to figure out that this was supposed to be (I think) the Twilight Zone music. But Byne's disease? My lord, I had to google it and I still don't understand. How do you come up with this stuff?

S&M (ooh, sorry, that didn't come out quite right) Sandy & Michael: Thanks for chiming in! I like the divining rod theory...

Twilight Zone Music!???
Sigh.
No, it is phenomenon music...you know...The Muppets...
phenomenon, doot doot dedootie, dedootie, dedootie, dedootie...phenomenon...ta ta tada...or however it goes.
(yes, I am sure you understand now)

Oh, just googled it and according to the all knowing wiki it is the "Mahna Mahna" song...
Mahna, Dootie same thing.
