Okay, well, we're not actually still snowed in today BUT I have nothing outside-the-house on the calendar, the local school district is closed, and after today we have five days straight of commitments. So. We are staying home and I am loving it. Love love love love.
It's at times like this that I question whether or not I'm really an extrovert. See, I used to think that extrovert meant likes to hang out with friends and talk, but now that I know that it means "is energized by being around others" whereas introvert means "is energized by being alone" I'm starting to notice that, you know, after being out doing things day after day after day I need to just hunker down a bit to recharge. So does that make me an extremely social introvert? Does it matter? Why am I still talking?
Oh hey, here's a non-kitchen picture:
I miss Cari's Theme Thursday photography link-up because it forced me to take photos I wouldn't have thought to take BUT my 50mm lens is broken so my pictures are mostly not turning out the way I'd like ( www . first world problems . com ) so maybe I jinxed her or something. Anyway, I first learned how to take a sun flare photo because of that challenge a year or two ago and every now and then I say "quick! Here's my chance!" And it works! Like magic.
Stream of consciousness! Weeeeeee!
Oh! I've been intending to try and do a video tour of our kitchen before we tear it out, but I don't know how to use our editing software and I get all mental about putting a long, rambling, unedited video on here of me wandering around our kitchen, like whoa. Dweej. You're much funnier in writing and all that.
Want a photo tour instead? Of course you do!
An electric blue spice rack affixed to the wall beneath a yellow, non-functional vent hood. Neither is centered over the stove.
Oh, is this duct tape I see holding the counter top to the wall? Why yes, yes I do believe it is.
Do you like how I didn't clean the kitchen before taking these? It'll make the after so much more legit. Too legit to quit.
Oh my gosh seriously with the brown EVERYWHERE in this place. Even the light switch plates are wooden! Make it staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahp.
This behemoth of a fridge is...what can I even say? The rust on the door that makes it look perpetually dirty is one of my favorite details.
Hey hey hey, here's the shot from the other day! False front has fallen off, tiny dishwasher is broken but would be too tiny to bother using anyway, rusty hinges contrast the not-white cabinets in just the wrong way. Cha cha cha!
This shot gives you a pretty good view of the poorly installed floor. Real parquet = lovely. Linoleum parquet in BROWN (oh my gosh so much brown. Brown brown browny brown brown everywhere) equals not at all lovely.
Here's the built-ins that you've seen before (love the space, hate the look. I mean that 1970s shade of BROWN. Help me.) next to the furnace chimney that has theeeeee ugliest dark mortar around those weirdly colored bricks.

We've since moved that trashcan out of the way. And put away all those groceries. But can you see what I'm sayin' with this kitchen? Can you feel me, friends?
It's gotta go, go, go. Yep. Go far, far away.
