We had a blast with our out-of-town guests last weekend. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at modern hostessing.

Design grads, with all those classes in product design and no one YET can tame their fiendish latent urges to give us household products i.e. oven units, surface units, refrigerator drawers, toilet tank gizmos that have puny plastic components; are usually NOT replaceable when they break; have sharp edges; are difficult to maneuver; harbor unspeakable nastiness. Ah – but the perfect hostess takes it all in stride – see how serenely she rises above the fray.

The struggle with the drawers in the fridge had me in stitches. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! You would have seen me throw it (in triple speed) across the kitchen floor!

Hysterical watching you wrestle with the plastic refrigerator bins. I died laughing. I cracked one of mine the other day whilst trying to get it on track. My refrigerator is situated such that I have to open the back sliding door in order to open the refrigerator door wide enough, and even then I can’t get the drawer back in without cracking it. Oh, so ridiculous.

You lost me, however, with your beautifully set, sparkling table and magazine-worthy food. I was no longer able to relate. :)

Coconut Girl is good company during my wakeful times of early morning. I’ll be stalking your blog. :)
