Kitchen Appliances


Odd things are happening in my blog comment box ... kitchen appliances seem to be making a general application to have their names recognised and respected ... or at least I think that's the idea behind Ralf the dishwasher and Steve the tumble-dryer's appearances.

Mmmmmm, I had to examine my conscience and there I discovered that I've been predisposed to discriminate against all appliances dedicated to the long dark night of my soul ... as in when I was a proper housewife.

My confession goes further ... I have never cared enough about any 'appliance' to name it. Clearly Steve and Ralf may find this emotionally damaging however that was my truth and having evolved over time, I think I can offer them my sincere apologies for being careless in implying madness on the part of their owner/operator and offer them full partcipation rights in Comment.

Appliances have rights too ...

Bizarre thing ... I can read that comments are being posted here, as they appear in my Yahoo inbox however, I can't see them on my blogsite. There have been 3 posted so far ... anyone know what's going on with the 'invisible' comments?

I think Blogger was broken for a bit today. Same thing happened on my blog. I cleared my cache and re-published my post and then things were all right.

I was wondering the same thing. I could've sworn that I left one here this morning.

But then again, I distinctly remember being married to Audrey Hepburn at one time.

The only appliance I've named is my Vacuum. He is wonderful and I call him Sucky. You can read about him here:

Starting to think maybe I've neglected my other household items by not naming them. After all, I did name all of my cars, except the current one because it's a rental. Hrm, what to call a crappy rented Ford Mondeo wagon full of St. Bernard hair?
