Sh*%ing bricks

It appears I need to back off the fiber a bit. I managed to plug up the toilet in the hall bathroom completely. The stoppage is not composed of toilet paper either.  Even Sheryl Crowe would have thought my few squares was appropriate. I have plunged and plunged and plunged. The blockage is solid (heh, solid). I even went to get a better, more efficient plunger late last night (these things never happen in the middle of the afternoon, do they?) but it has not fared any better. I hoped gravity and time would help, so I left it overnight, but the toilet failed to flush this morning. I suppose I will plunge for a while more then I am going to have to call a plumber.

If there is drainage overnight, Dawn dish soap and hot water will help most times.

If no drainage, I have a submersible dog dish heater that I use overnight and it hardly ever fails to clear the blockage if the plunger is used.
