A couple of days ago I was lying in bed after a hard day's work, happily watching Torchwood, when I decided to pause my video and get up to fix myself a peanut butter and Sriracha sandwich.
Just as I was getting the Sriracha out from behind the soy milk I heard a terrible crash, and I looked down to see that the glass shelf covering the vegetable drawer had shattered into thousands of little pieces! As soon as my sandwich was made I put the ingredients away and resolved not to think about my refrigerator till my next day off.
I sent away for a new shelf in the mail, figuring I'd get it almost as quickly as if I waited for my day off and tried to get someone to drive me to the appliance parts store. It turned out it won't get here for almost a week and a half, so today I made myself a nice interim shelf out of cardboard. I was pleased to find a good use for some of my cardboard I keep around, justifying my hoarder tendencies!
