The One Working Fireplace | 1.5.11

The One Working Fireplace | 1.5.11

After much effort and a visit from housing maintenance, our fireplace works, finally. Sort of. It seems the controls don't work to shut it off properly, so Matt has to relight the pilot every time we want to use it. This falls squarely into the category of Jobs I Am Too Big a Sissy To Do; terrible, probably, but for inexplicable reasons I am scared to death of anything that has the words "pilot light" associated with it. Perhaps some irrational fear passed on to me by my mama, who believes all propane-powered gas grills are going to explode at any minute?
