It's the season for inviting folks over for pre-Christmas gluttony, so I decided to clean the kitchen. I always do that when I notice dirt old enough for kindergarten. One thing led to another, and I wound up repainting the whole &)*^*$# room. White. It looks pretty good but forced me into a rare New Year's Resolution. I hereby resolve to pay closer attention while frying bacon, thereby igniting fewer grease fires.
