My Non-Socio-Political Refrigerator

i'll have more to say on the subject when i'm not at work.

  1. Did you empty it just for the picture or is it always like that?

  4. I expected to at LEAST see a few leftover boxes of Indian take out.....

  5. Well...at least it's very easy to clean. :D

  6. I just invited someone to come vacation at my house to lose weight because I never food shop or cook. You actually have more food in your fridge than I do and I have kids. I am surprised that DYFS hasn't come for my kids. I wonder what they survive on. They must be eating the lawn. God knows I never mow!

  7. Holy crap! You don't even have the ubiquitous condiment jars and bottles in the door! How ever did you manage that? You poor thing, you must have had a FIRE or something.

    I thought everybody had 17 salad drssing bottles, an unidentifiable jar of something that was something many moons ago, assorted mustards and an expired jar of fat-free mayo in the door.

    Or is that just me?

  8. Is that a box of wine? Where is the wine?

  9. I have the opposite food storage issue- tons of stuff that i cook or purchase (yay leftovers!) and couldn't eat in this lifetime. and the ubiquitous condiments.

  10. I see two bottles in the door. They might be salad dressing, or marguerita mix.

    "Wasted away again in...."

  11. at least it isn't just a lonely box of baking powder, these three items can hang out together and discuss their life on 3rd shelf. It looks like the box and the goat cheese are having a serious sit down discussion with the butter.

  12. I know for a fact that your refridgerator is the treasurer for a radical feminist anarcho-syndacalist collective*. Now if you had a normal, God-fearing, 100% US of A American refridgerator, it would be replete with delicious meats, dairy products and fudgesicles.

    WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA?!

  13. Wine, goat cheese, and butter....
    I don't see anything wrong here.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm surprised so many people recognized the goat cheese. I need to get out more!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm more worried about the chick with kids that has less in her fridge.

    also, way to keep the restaurant industry in business. jobs = good.

  16. leah is so right. that butter is totally freaking out right now. it feels betrayed.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hey! Looks like mine! Does your veggie drawers hide the rotted carcasses of the veggies you bought with the wonderful intentions that you would 1) Cook 2)eat healthy ... but ya know ... how that "out of sight - out of mind" thing works?? Oh, and the "lazy" thing? And the "I don't cook" thing? And the "my only 'green' food is mint-n-chip ice cream" thing??

    No? Oh yeah ... uh.. me neither! ;)

  18. I love your blog! You did an excellent job! I have a blog on corvette parts if you would like to come and comment on it!

    It's an intervention. The butter has a major problem with cholesterol and is showing signs of impending coronary disaster. The wine and cheese are threatening to move out and join a reception if the butter doesn't clean up his act.

  20. See? I want cool boxed wine like that. Where do you find it?

    K-
    Isn't that the boxed wine from your birthday?

    Oh, and I agree with alex, that definitely looks like an intervention. See how the butter looks like it's about to jump?

    Don't feel bad about the fridge being empty. My bf and I went shopping yesterday and we bought so much stuff I had issues getting it all to fit. It's sad, really.

    Do you at least have some lean cuisine spa meals in the freezer? I had to throw one out to get everything to fit yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  22. you don't have "food storage issues" you have food issues.

    ReplyDelete
  23. There is definitely an intervention in progress for that pound of butter. When I say there's nothing in the fridge that usually means nothing I really want to eat, but you really mean it. That's amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG! You just reminded me that I saw something a while back that totally belongs in your fridge. Wine that came in a six-pack. As in cans...like beer. But with straws attached on the side like a juice box.

    How cool is that? They could be the offspring of the big box of wine and join in the intervention. Poor butter!

    ReplyDelete
  25. that's like my fridge! my freezer, on the other hand, is full. without trader joe's frozen food section, i would starve.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Dinner's at your house! We'll wash down our butter balls with boxed wine (straw glued on back?)
    Do you have a lot of bread? How does the freezer look? A bunch of frozen dinners?
    This must be good for the weight loss regimen if this is all you've got!

    ReplyDelete
  27. to "not all dumbs..": this shows that having zero food might be cool in some circles, but actually does not make you thin - just the opposite (at least given the sample of one here)

    ReplyDelete
  28. oh shut UP, you fucking anonymous (cowardly) trolls.

  29. p.s. when kristy was back east to meet her lil nephew, i was one of the friends who came over in the mornings to feed her kitties.

    at that time, she had one additional item in the fridge: chilled filtered water for the (spoiled) kitty boys!!

    and she also shops for wet food for them on a nearly-daily basis!

    so she has her priorities quite well-set :-)

  30. i'm just warning you now.

    if you continue to have only dairy products and boxed wine, i cannot possibly dine with you.

    i am allergic to cow products (really! except beef... mmmmmm beef) and i'm pretty sure no one wants to see me have wine for dinner.

    so i vote crackers. not that it would help fill the fridge, but still.

    and someone should tell the wine and cheese to stop bullying the butter. he cannot get any closer to the wall.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ummmmm....... how come???

    p.s. you are d2, but there's no "d" in refrigerator! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  32. No no, I can see that goat cheese and boxed wine are intervening because they love and care about butter, and don't want to see butter get hurt again.

    ReplyDelete
  33. LMAO

    Looks familiar...except that's the way mine looks after I throw all the stuff out that I bought last week when I convinced myself that I would start cooking more, eating out less, being healthier...

    You don't need food in your fridge if you're out on 25 dates.....


    Ramen noodles need no refrigeraton dontchaknow...

  35. That is totally the boxed wined i brought to the blog party. That's like my second picture (including a famous Kristy illustration, sans hair) on her blog. I'm freakin' stoked.
    b.
    brian of the boxed wine.

  36. Brian, I TOTALLY recognized that box, and as I scrolled down the insane number of comments, I was overjoyed to find that NO ONE ELSE HAD CAUGHT IT. But, of course, you, the rightful donor of the box, placed claim. Rightfully. Oh, POOP, I was not quick enough. You got me again. (The first time being when you publicly put me and molesting in the same sentence.) (No hard feelings.) :)

  37. How about an "after" picture here... a fridge filled with glorious summer bounty... blueberries, strawberries, melon, asparagus, lettuce, feta cheese?, olives, lemons, tomato, fresh chicken breast, bottles of water. Those colors would be really pretty against the white. Add a mirror fridge magnet that says "I am Special". Kristy,while this is understandable now, an empty fridge one to ten years down the line will work against you. Plus, produce departments and markets are fun ways to meet like minded men... :)

  38. So she sits down and writes about her empty fridge.

    She writes a LONG post about her empty fridge.

    And it's fun to read.

    And it gets a zillion comments, most of which are ALSO fun to read.

    I don't know why I even try any more. (That's NOT what this is all about? Oh.)

    J.A.P.

  39. Portia and Brian...I totally recognize that box from the blog party too! How can you forget that? First of all, how touching was it that Brian gave her that, and then Brian, how can I forget me practically pulling you by the hair to come over to the booth? (not realizing you were waiting on your fish and chips)?

  40. riseyp-

    stop 'showing off' that you know kristy personally.

    wow, congrats to you. really. man, i'm so jealous. you fed her cats. while she was away. wow. i wish i could be you.

    so you know her. so big deal.

    get over it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. hey elba,

    i don't think she's 'showing off' -- i think that risey just states she knows me because it lends credibility to her statements (like how/why she'd know i have the water) instead of making her sound like a psycho stalker, you know?

    i think she's only made mention of knowing me when she's in the precarious position of defending me. so i appreciate it.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Looks like my fridge! I have rabbits though, so their veggies take up a lot of space, but nothing much for me! And, for the record, I drank CHEAP boxed wine ($12/box)for about 4 months. It says on the box, fresh until the last drop! I am also cheap, so I couldnt' let it go to waste!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Note to self - if I ever get to SF and meet Kristy, be sure to arrange a supper meeting at a restaurant :-)

    Funny post!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is awesome. Love it.

    and this:

    "which would be the time i set the dishtowel on fire."

    yeah, I've done that. We should file a class-action lawsuit agains Dishtowels Inc.
