November 3, 2009Tuesday’s Retro Guest – And The Word For Today Is…
I ADORE this post from Sara! I am dying over that fridge!
But first……… I had to show y’all this bomb-a-licious GE kitchen that is up for sale on E-Bay right now. Click HERE for the link. The guy is asking $7000 for the whole kitchen, which I think is insanely high, and is probably the reason no one has even attempted to make an offer yet (though it seems people are interested if you read through the Q&A at the bottom). The kitchen is TOTALLY, FANTASTICALLY awesome though, it even still has the original fridge!
Is this Refrigerator not the coolest thing EVER! Pink with a Turquoise Interior! Ruth, Sable get your smelling salts! And, check out the swing out shelves. I think I have died and gone to retro heaven!!! This kitchen looks pristine. Very, very time-capsuley! You would think that Fridge was just delivered, it looks SO clean.
In the auction the guy says his house was built in 1956 and this kitchen is original to the house. Oh man, I wish he would keep that kitchen as it is. If the kitchen is this cool I cannot imagine what the rest of the house looks like – or what they are doing to it. 🙁 *Feeling a little depressed now*
OK! Pulling self out of depression at thoughts of awesome 50’s house probably getting gutted and renovated “Home Depot” style, and on with the rest of the post!
All right kids, raise your hands if you know what sycophant means. 🙂 I’m waiting…… OK, I had absolutely no idea either. So here goes, Sycophant – n. A servile self-seeker who attempts to win favor by flattering influential people. Now, you are probably wondering why I would get all class-roomy on y’all today and it is for only one reason – my love of Mad Men and Sesame Street! I don’t know if anyone has seen this yet but if you dig Mad Men you HAVE, HAVE, HAVE to check this link out. Sesame Street did an awesome parody of Mad Men, like only they can do.
Don’t you love how they just slip in a word like sycophants at the end, and it is perfect too. It reminds me of just how awesome Sesame Street really is! If I ever win the lottery I am definitely donating some big $$$ to PBS!
