It came unhooked because the rubber hole on the flapper valve had worn through: boo!
Turned off water to toilet: success
Detached & extricated flapper valve (pointedly not thinking about all that gunk in there): success
Will go to store to see if they have flapper valves of the right size (will bring detached valve as reference): this afternoon

Off The Deep End, Part One
Today I hate myself and all my works. So I cleaned, because if I'm going to have a complete tantrumy meltdown like a two-year-old, I'm at least mature enough to clean up all the actual two-year-old's toys while I'm at it.
Then I had a shower to calm down, during which I had two thoughts: one, I could change the entire dissertation and that would SHOW THEM; and two, I forget what two was but it was very satisfying at the time. These were not reasonable thoughts but at least they were fighting thoughts, which is an improvement over "at least when I fail I'll be finished with this pile of excrescence."
Anyway, this post mainly to record the main point: The world is poorer for not having my sexbot comedy in it yet.
