fridge blog

(viewed 1046 times)
okay. big fat north american fridge.

milk, orange juice, apples, carrots, orange peppers (on sale ,cheap these days)

top shelf has upside down maple butter, hummous, cream for risotto, bag of sprouted acorns

middle shelves: feta cheese, pesto, yoghurt, maple syrup, white bean miso, tikka masala sauce, lettuce, leftover jerk chicken, three jamaican patties, two eggplant, big tortillas for making quesadillas. vegie drawers have, guess what? vegetables.

door: butter, 8 hot sauces (favourite is cajun sunshine), ketchup, horseradish, blueberry juice, flax seed, salad dressings, different bbq sauces, tahini.

side view of fride is the typical mess of things stuck to a fridge: Che, the 'Yukon Song' from Calvin and Hobbes, the list of things to do when you are bored from mat's sister, tickets to Mano Chao in June, the Bloor Cinema schedule,phone numbers, a wedding invitation (oo next week, what do I wear?), a photo of Jane Jacobs (great writer on urban issues), list of top ten restaurants in Toronto, and just stuff.

no marmite. no stuffed animals. yet.

window hand for phobo

(viewed 1008 times)
P, you asked to see the real hand. The new ones are shiny and have lost some detail. I will bathe the new ones in acid to turn them black, but I miss the fine detail of the originals. Still a nice way to pull up my windows. That is whenever it stops snowing and gets warm...

boxful of hands

my house is old and falling apart. But it has some nice old things about it. One thing is that all the windows have tiny hands to pull on when you raise or lower the window. I took one to this store years ago to see if he had more. No. But he sent the original for casting, and now there are lots of hands raising windows. I needed 18. He gave them to me for free.

once in a while the blog just gets you

Today was hard.

I asked my neighbour to turn off his floodlight. It has been on for three days, night and day. It shines into my house, exactly where Annie likes to sleep. He told me what he thinks of me. None of it flattering. Next thing, the cops are at my door asking me what I did....they were very nice, and of course, my neighbour ended up turning out his light. Left me wondering, feeling kind of low.

Then the UPS guy shows up.
With a blog package from Earth.
It was Mandy's wire rabbit head. With bird feathers stuck to it.

I tried it out for better reception with my router.
I tried it out on Annie. (not impressed except it smelled interesting)
Finally took down a mask and hung it up instead.
It is the greatest little piece of wire ridiculousness around.

Mandy, thanks. I really needed that rabbit head.
bless the blog.
