The Refrigerator of Cognitive Dissonance

This post truly needs photos, but if I wait for them, it'll never get made.

The outside of my refrigerator looks just like you'd expect a fridge to look after 7 years of my presence: a variety of magnets holding up a variety of photos, comics, business cards, news clippings (including the headline "A Fan is a Terrible Thing to Waste"), a bag of Genuine Dust Bunnies that were a gift from tagwn and Denny Lien upon moving into Toad Hall in 1983, etc. A bit over 150 separate pieces of kipple and magnets in all.

The inside of my refrigerator looks...empty. Well, not entirely, just all but. There are 4 bags/cans of coffee in the freezer that are deemed safe and not too ancient. Two cold packs. A miniature bottle of aquavit from I don't remember. The fridge has an as-yet-unopened bottle of "refrigerate after opening" apricot nectar, 4 bottles of bheer and hard cider, plus 2 bottles and 4 cans of ginger beer.

The inside is also cleaner than at any time since I moved in. Yes, I've cleaned it from time to time between then and now, but never all at once, fridge and freezer both. It doesn't look new, but it doesn't look so crammed and shabby, either.

What's next? A trip to the grocery store, of course.

Or you could say t'hell with filling it up and come to our house. Swedish meatballs tomorrow for the soup kitchen. :-)

Much as I need to get to your place soon, soon, soon, I'm holding out for at least two consecutive nights at home first.

The freezer is anything but full, but at least it's not empty any more. There are even items with protein in it. And way more ice cream, fruit bars, and Italian ices than the weather warrants. I think I was doing some comfort shopping along with the beginning of the great restocking.

Well, okay...sleeping in own bed = win. So, for that matter, does ice cream. :-)
