I'm in love!

I know, I know! I swore it would NEVER happen again! I have to confess, it was TOTALLY unexpected! I never DREAMED it was possible! There I was last Saturday, just walking along, totally minding my own business, and WHAM! ... it happened! In one split second, I found myself speechless! I had heart palpitations! I was practically overcome with long-buried desire!

And in case you're thinking I'm talking about some hunky man ... fooled you! I'm talking about a TOASTER!

It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT ... And then I saw the BLENDER and I was immediately torn between two new loves! And the cause of all this? Sears now carries the Hamilton Beach line of Eclectrics. And wouldn't you know it! I actually need a new toaster! (And maybe a blender ...) I've seen many things SEABREEZE before, and never been particularly blown away by this particular colour, but I've never seen SEABREEZE kitchen appliances! How retro-licious! How appealing! And it even kind of works with all the YELLOW kitchen stuff I have at the moment!

However, the reality of studenthood is perpetual poverty, so I had to content myself with knitting a few new dishcloths in SEABREEZE-coloured cotton yarn.

On the plus side, that means I can spend countless hours of countless days and nights FANTICIZING about my new (possibly DUAL) love! I might never be bored again!

For those of you who remember how often I've griped about the BLUE kitchen (in my former life) and how very much I hate BLUE (never let your partner go to the building supply store AFTER you've picked out the terra cotta tiles of your dreams!) ... what can I say except LOVE MUST BE BLIND!

I'm thinking I could start on a new tablecloth ... something SEABREEZE and YELLOW ...
