I hate my new refrigerator.

Took me weeks to get my husband to admit it wasn't normal for a new refrigerator to be warm in the main area but the freezer a glacier covered in ice, and condensation soaking everything in the vegetable area. Also making odd gurgling noises like a frog under water.

Today a repair guy from the manufacturer came and he blamed it on not closing the refrigerator doors (like we're so stupid we don't notice the refrigerator doors are open) and "vapors." I'd made the mistake of leaving a small bowl of uncovered leftover soup in there and he said the condensation was caused by leaving uncovered things, as if I leave large pots of hot liquids in the refrigerator all the time and wonder why it's not cold, as well as leaving the doors wide open and wonder why it's not cold. I lost my temper. I knew this was going to happen.

At first the husband was embarrassed at me losing my temper, but I explained and he understood about the gender gap. I have a clear memory of, as a teenager, taking my mother's car into the mechanic's because of the heater. In a crowded waiting room, I went up to the man at the counter and told him I was there because the heater was broken. He said, is it broken or it doesn't work? Snickers from the waiting room. Still don't understand what the hell is the difference. It's always like that.

Guess I'll need to buy a new refrigerator (not looking for advice and I know, First World Problems), but I just wanted to rant.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee: What Recent HBCU Bomb Threats Say About the State of Racism

Media people saying "booms" instead of "explosions."

It's been going on for awhile. This irritates me! Am I the only one?

Sorry, I post this every year.

Full Frontal, Samantha Bee: How Conservative Book Bans Don't Protect Kids (parts 1 & 2)

Watched Netflix documentary "Becoming" about Michelle Obama.

"It takes some energy to go high, and we're exhausted by it. ... So the day I left the White House I write about how painful it was to sit on that stage, and then a lot of our folks didn't vote. So it was almost a slap in the face."

Yes it was a slap in the face and for what? What was so fictionally horrible about Obama/Hillary/Biden -- next slap in the face coming up in the midterms for no reason except for mindless slapping.

The View: Fashion Icon Andre Leon Talley Dies at 73

He and Diana Vreeland were the personification of fashion. I'll reread his memoir "The Chiffon Trenches" (highly recommend Vreeland's memoir "D.V." ).

Watched a 2018 interview of Talley just now, his advice: have manners, be polite, respect people, do your homework and research, know history, be confident in yourself and your background, knowledge is exciting.
