I Think You'll Get Used to it

After nearly a week of debating after our microwave bursting into a pathetic dismal motherfuckin' huge flame of nastiness, we've come to a conclusion.

We're not getting a microwave replacement.

Hells no.

Surely, no one would expect me to get an attached-to-my- house-let-me-climb-over-you-and-put-my-boobies-in-the-flames microwave again. No thanks. I like my boobies too much.

Instead, we're going old-school. We're getting a hood range.

Hells yeah.

Now, in order to have Aaron agree to this, I had to promise a microwave in the basement. For emergencies. Like, not being able to wait on the tea kettle for hot water. ::eye roll::

Also, we have to figure out what to do with the back splash. My vote (and it's going my way) is to paint it white if it's not tiled. Aaron wants to put up contact paper.

Can I get a "hells no" to that?

With your history, I'd say increasing any fire risk would be a very.bad.thing.

Tiles tiles tiles.

Contact paper? HELLS NO! GROSS!

sasha said...

ummm, HELLS NO! I LOVE your writing style... every post I read is a guaranteed smile and a chuckle! Tiled back splashes rock socks :)

Absolutely Hells No on contact paper. Seriously. What's he thinking with?

tonkelu said...

I'm going to have to give an "oh fuck no" to the contact paper. Has he lost his mind???

Tell you what, you buy the stuff, I'll come over and help you tile the back splash. Aaron doesn't even need to be there.

Contact paper??? No. Yuck. Plain white tiles are super super cheap. Or paint.

You should just get him an electric tea kettle. It boils water even faster than a microwave.

kristin said...

yeah, hells no.


i think i'm giong to start saying that.

Without a doubt hells bells no!
tile is not that expensive (home depot or lowe's) you can do it yourself and it will look 1000% pct better than either paint or 'gasp' contact paper. There are fancy new-fangled tile things that are in sq ft blocks already, tiles that replicate old pressed tin ceilings, formica that looks exactly like stainless steel, very affordable fixes that will make you excessively happy!

Oh. MY. God. CONTACT paper? What universe does this man live in?

HELLS BELLS NO WAY JOSE!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheap-ass, slacker man.

Tiles, baby, tiles.

ALthough I'm not sure if I could function without the microwaves (sans flames of course)

Alicia A. said...

Contact paper would be a fire hazard. Yes. Surely it would.

I vote white tile.

Bitterbetty said...

Oh, the contact paper would be a short lived eyesore... Aaron, I beg of you, listen to reason!

Katya said...

My mom put hers in the basement. Because the didn't think they used it. Now they walk up and down several times a day...

No, no, no, no no! Emphatically No... on the contact paper... bleh.

Arielah said...

HELLS NO! If he papers it he cleans it!

laeroport said...

hells no.
contact paper will just melt.
aaron, you really make me wonder sometimes.....

Contact paper? Oh my hell! Just goes to show you that men have absolutely no decorating sense whatsoever! Good for you for going old school. Even though I don't use mine that often, I don't think I could go totally without it. If do put one down in the basement and find yourself using it more than you thought you would, there is bonus to that - weight loss!

Duncan Idaho said...

Hells no! I still can't get rid of my microwave.

Dear Aaron,
You must have missed the memo about losing your right in having a say in any decorating project once you marry. This includes appliances, paint color, furniture choices for the main living areas and where to use contact paper. Unless you plan to take over 90% of the cooking, I suggest to go along with your wife's wishes. I know you're a quick study, get with it.
