God I hate it when I put things somewhere sensible.

*bangs head repeatedly against wall*

It's almost as bad as when I oh-so-sensibly get rid of stuff I don't "really" need and couldn't possibly ever find another use for.


In other news, with a bit of luck we'll soon have a new toaster. Yay!

But we're keeping the old one because it's fully automatic, which is kind of a thing for my beloved [livejournal.com profile] tenbears on account of having one (or maybe not having one and feeling deprived, I can't remember) when he was a child. This fully automatic toaster is only a couple of years old. It stopped working a few months ago now and preliminary research has revealed that they are not easily repaired and that Sunbeam has stopped making them.

It seems the fully automatic toaster was simply Sunbeam's once-off contribution to the novelty/nostalgic Christmas gifts market one year, because as soon as they appeared on the market after an absence of maybe two decades, they just as soon disappeared because Sunbeam stopped making them.

We have found one establishment that's prepared 'to have a go' in the fixing department. They're about a 90 minute drive away. (And no, *you* can't touch it, so don't offer and don't ask.)

In the meanwhile we need toast, so my poor [livejournal.com profile] tenbears is out buying a toaster of the mundane throcking variety. Later he will come home and forlornly put his beloved automatic toaster back in its special box and keep it somewhere safe until he can make the trip out to Woop-Woop, and every time he makes toast he will glare at the throcking toaster and probably sulk.

My life. It's a rich tapestry. Really.
