Heart, cease thy pounding... TV talk show celebrity Oprah Winfrey recently fixed a toilet in the home she shares with partner Stedman Graham, reports Ireland's TV3. It seems she accomplished a bog-standard repair.

TV3: Oprah Winfrey loves fixing things... Pardon the puns, but actually I'm quite impressed. TV celebrities of Winfrey's stature might be excused for deeming toilet repairs to be beneath them - no pun intended - but she seems to be quite handy and according to the TV3 report, "loves fixing things around her house".
That's a good example to set, though her description of how she did it is quite "folksy", taking a bubble thing and connecting to the little line thing and "the right little spot", but there's no mention of any "thingamabob", "doodad", "gizmo" or "thingamajig".
But she fixed it - no wonder she's flushed with success.
