a kitchen disaster

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!

That looks much more horrible than it did in my mind when you described it. I'm glad you had the cardboard, although the hoarder tendencies......
