Kitchen Porn

Brucie,

Whoo! Did I ever have a good time at the ol' comfest! I felt I should say that because we have spent the last 3 weeks talking of nothing but on our blog, and people probably want a follow-up. On Monday after I had gotten done dropping you and Hix at the airport, I finally found my phone charger and checked my messages. I had 8 new messages, and they were all like this:
  • New Message. "Karen! I just got down here! I'm going to get some pizza and I'll meet you at the blanket!" BEEP
  • New Message. "Duuuuuuuuude! Buddy! We're here waiting for the parade to start, where are you? Call me!" BEEP

....and so on. So it was a little bittersweet, but checking all your comfest messages the day after comfest is kind of a tradition. No more sad! Kitchen pictures........

So yeah, the kitchen is always the most put-together room right away. For me, anyway. Otherwise, the beer gets all warm and you will order pizza for every meal until you know where your clean dishes are. Much as I would like it to, my budget does not allow for this.

I also got a new microwave! You may remember the old microwave, pictured below:

Believe me, the coffee cup for scale does not begin to describe the enormity of this microwave. It is 1200 watts, is large enough to fit a whole turkey, and frequently blows the fuse in the kitchen when used in conjunction with any other appliance. By the way, my knowledge of its ability to fit an entire turkey stems from my parent's culinary genius, to be discussed at a later time.
Anyway, Lil' Chernobyl, as Tome affectionately calls it, wouldn't fit on the counter of my new kitchen without overlapping onto the stove. In addition to being bad feng shui, I was faced with the possibility that I might not be able to use two of my burners...so I bought a new, pretty microwave!!!


Look at how nicely all the chi flows on this side of the kitchen!! Here's a closeup:

Damn! This picture didn't look so fuzzy on my phone. Anyway, this microwave is kind of too good for me. I'm not really sure how to use it. If you push "1" like you're going to make it go for one minute, it just STARTS! Fancy!!!! Also, it has a whole bunch of extra buttons, including one preset for....

Milk? Why?!? Who on this earth microwaves their milk? And why is Milk different from any other Beverage?
"Gee I'm thirsty, Bruce! May I have a beverage?"
"Sorry Brax, all I got is milk!"
That exchange is so wrong on so many levels.

See you later, I'm off to knit some stuff!

Oh no! Lil' Chernobyl? That m-effer ruined many an evening for me when it would blow out the power and I'd be alone in the house and our basement was SO SCARY.

Your kitchen looks great!!
