TIP #1 - USING
A HAMMER AND SCREWDRIVER IS A BAD IDEA
Whew. Do I feel like a moron.
Ya see, I always did it this way, and I guess I
was just lucky before.
So we were defrosting our dumpster
fridge, because it was starting to smell again, and
well it had turned into pure frost. Great for the
electric bill this fridge is. So jess is using a hair
dryer and I decide to give her a bit of a lesson
in refrigerator repair. I think the scene went a
little like this:
ME: "Step aside, honey...I'll show
you how to defrost a freezer..."
HER: "I don't think you're
supposed to use a screw driver..."
...a yellow mist of free-on sprays
in my face as my ego falls to the floor. All I could
muster was a "whoops". Now I'm not sure if free-on in
the face is a bad thing, but the world looks a lot
more PURPLE than it used to.
Now in my defense, the freezer box
had crumbled into the tray that is supposed to be
BENEATH it, thus exposing the free-on tube,
whereas before when I used this method it was
still intact. Which would explain why I never had this
happen before. Still doesn't help me from feeling like
an idiot though. It was kinda funny then, but $500
later I just feel stupid.
Oh, and we got denied
for a Best Buy card. Can I please get
a little pissy here. This happened back in
Columbus when I was trying to buy the
amp for 4tvs. I couldn't get credit for a
freakin' $500 amp, but the $22,000 Camry
in the parking lot was just fine. What in
the HELL are the requirements here? It
drives me nuts when I get denied for
credit at stores, when I have such a great
credit history...and a LOOONG one. Oh
well. Guess you have to be a home owner
before they think you can afford a fridge.
It is a nice fridge though. And Marty and
I didn't have to carry
it up the
Life is finally getting back to
normal around here, but soon to be bown to hell when
we have to move next month. I can't tell you how much
I'm looking forward to the fall. First of all Jim Rome
is gonna be co-hosting Monday Night Football. I mean
how FREAKIN' COOL IS THAT. It also comes on
at 6 PM out here and that's just incredible...and we
can finally start paying back my grandparents that
loaned us so much money in December.
Just thought you'd
like to know that I'll be re-enacting yet
another scene from the Karate Kid tonight.
Remember the beach and that
kick I tried to
do? Now I'm doing an early scene where
they had a little beach party with a
bon-fire. LOL. Yes, it makes my journals
when Jess and I actually go to a party.
That's about how exciting our social lives
are. I'm glad I know karate. I was a
blue-belt when I was 7. So no little
DOJO gangs will beat my ass and break
