So, my landlords finally fixed the boiler and turned the heat on last night...odd, since it wasn't actually cold. Allow me to describe the variety of noises coming from the radiator that woke me up at 6am this morning:
1. Plink. Plink. Plinkety-Plink. (Hmmm...sounds like something squeaking.)
3. Ssss--sssss-plinkplink--sssssssss (ok, that's a bit annoying).
4. SSSSSSSSSHHHHHHH-BANG-SSSSSSHHHHHHHHHH-BANGBANGBANG (Fuck!)
So, yeah. That's what my radiator sounds like. A boa-constrictor devouring an elephant in the middle of a thunderstorm.
