Cold Storage

5th October 2006

Melissa of the excellent Suburban Bliss just did her first No One Cares What You Had for Lunch post. Turns out that the outside of her refrigerator is a frickin’ time capsule. And you? Pony up, kids. What’s on your fridge?

Put links to your refrigerator images or lists in the comments, and I’ll leave them open until the spammers close in. Maybe we’ll even do a Best of Fridges roundup.

    A friend of mind gave me her hand-me-down fridge paintings where she took what was left of a roll of magnet and made two beautiful drawings. One of a European square, and one of some monks walking in a cathedral. They were both done with marker, abstract, and are really striking with the bold colors. And they fit the bottom door and top door perfectly!

    My fridge is plain, but my neighbor and his girlfriend went around collecting pro-war ribbons from people’s cars for a while, and covered their fridge with that, which is both funny and vaguely creepy to me.
    (been reading your blog for a while, very entertaining!)

    In our previous house, our fridge looked like a photo album had exploded upon it. Our current fridge only allows certain magnets to stick on, so it’s a delicate balancing act. Picture to come (lazy… sorry).

    Every apartment, every house I have lived in since I was 16 has had these staple fridge items: A love letter from a boy in high school with choice phrases such as “you seem really cool i think” and “i should prolly stop writing now because i am just looking stupid oh wait i am stupid” included. Not only is it funny, but it makes me feel good to know that someone, somewhere, even if he was a bit lacking, admired my “good style” at one point in my life. Hasn’t happened since. Okay, I’ve also had a small quote from Ward Churchill: “The object is not to be personally pure. The object is to affect a measurable change.” It reminds me what I’m doing in the world. Also, this magnet of a carrot that travels with me in my pocket when I move. It’s just… my carrot. Those things remain constant, the notes and kid art and various photos change frequently. I’m the cluttered fridge type.

    We just moved, and I haven’t yet unpacked the messiness that used to live on our fridge. But I did spend about an hour painstakingly putting up all those little white and black words that you can spell random nothingness with. It’s quite entertaining. Especially when you get a few drunk people involved.

    the best thing on my fridge are a row of strong magnets labelled the days of the week. When I have tickets for events, etc., I just tack ’em up under the corresponding magnet, and let them do the reminding for me!

    my fridge boasts a cartoon of two chocolate easter bunnies. one has a bite out of its butt and is saying “my butt hurts” to the bunny facing him, who has a bite out of his ears and replies “what??” also, lots of cryptic magnetic poetry.

    Inspiration abound! I also have a post about my refer and photos up at my blog. I think I use my refer as a place to put things that I don’t want to throw away yet have no place else for. It pretty much hasn’t changed it’s look in a few years! :o Maybe it’s time for a refer make-over.

    WHen moving my randmother to Dallas from California this summer, my sister decided she wanted her 1963 refrigerator for their garage.

    She opened it up and found suppositories that belonged to my grandfather, They were from 1976, the year I was born.

  11. Kate

    I am very pleased with out fridge, which includes Anthropologist magnetic poetry (made by my housemate), political magnetic poetry (same), and Glasgow English magnetic poetry (a gift from a friend while I was doing my fieldwork), thus offering up the magnetic poetry gems:

    ye’ bad men canna haud yer quail-tards!

    and

    Hooray for Kinsey Study Day!

    1. Leap Frog’s The Word Whammer kid spelling toy (and associated magnetized letters)
    2. Kid art (rotating supply daily)
    3. Various pictures of family in painstakingly adorable poses
    4. A coupon for free queso the next time we go to Texadelphia
    5. A magnet with my plumber’s info on it
    6. A handful of Crayola WonderArt magnets made by me, but at the direction of my daughter (fish, turtle, dragonfly, elephant)

    Honestly, it looks like disorganized shit and given the fact that I just renovated my entire kitchen, it ought NOT to look like shit. But I have a 3 year old. She’ll just decorate it with more art if I take it down. It ain’t on the list of “shit worth fighting about”. :-)

    Hm. The comment I left a couple of days ago has been deleted. How very intresting.

    [[Ed note: Hi, Alda. I haven’t deleted any of your posts. Perhaps whatever you wrote didn’t load when you hit publish?]]

    I will work on this one although my fridge is boring. I just did a post on #15 though….Fill the Gap. Love the book!

  15. Francie

    My fridge is a historical narrative of the places we have lived and visited for the last 5 years or so. Also, all our anti-Bush stuff that we’re afraid to put on our cars. See my site for pics.

    “Hey, who knows when the green fuzz off of old salsa might be valuable? That’s right – I’m not lazy. I’m uber-prepared. Like MacGyver. With that fuzz, a C cell battery, and half a tampon? I can make high impact explosives.”

    My fridge contains a large, scary picture of my husband’s face making some rather obscene expression. His friend took it at a bachelor party, blew it up and cut it out…then pasted it on the “face” of a doll (made out of baby items) that he gave us for the impending arrival of our baby girl.

    There are more magnets than actual “things” being held up by the magnets, several sets of magnetic poetry, several ancient photos, tickets to Phantom of The Opera, several take out menus, school calendar from 2003, coupons that have expired, wipe board magnet that the wrong marker was used on and it permanently says “Mom, can Jessica sleep over pleeeeeeeeeeaaase?”, a birth announcement from 2 yrs ago, a postcard from Australia, my work schedule from Jan this year (I’m on mat leave and haven’t been to work since Jan 15) and a picture of me from Hallowe’en two years ago when I dressed up as Mimi from Drew Carey.

    Someday I need to declutter the fridge door – I’m sure its similar to my keyring collection and that my ignition will fall out of my car due to the weight, that the fridge door seal will give due to the weight of the crap attached to the fridge!

  21. Manders

    Items currently found on my fridge:
    1. “eat more candy” magnet
    2. photo of Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 album cover recreated in Lego
    3. pic of best friend and her new baby
    4. “F is for Fuck” magnet
    5. I {heart} KUMM sticker (U of MN, Morris college radio)
    6. photo of self and friend at Graceland photoshopped with giant afros and sunglasses
    7. magnetic poetry: “Hungry?”
    8. those noisy fun hematite magnets
    9. pizza delivery newspaper insert that says “Frozen Pizza Has No Soul”
    10. Talking Pokemon Electrode magnet

    I’ve basically been doing nothing to speak of. Basically nothing seems worth thinking about. I feel like a void, but that’s how it is. I’ve just been hanging out doing nothing.

  25. britney spears wallpaper

    Pretty much nothing notable happening. My mind is like a complete blank. I’ve just been hanging out waiting for something to happen. Not much on my mind to speak of. I just don’t have anything to say. That’s how it is.
