I have a theory that you can tell a lot about somebody by what they've got stuck to the front of their refrigerator.
Well, here's a photo of mine. As you can see, it's like my life - crazy and cluttered.
It's covered with all kinds of cool magnets I've collected in my world travels. There are some postcards, and magnets from many places I've visited (such as Vienna, San Francisco, Leipzig, Fort Sumter in South Carolina), and remnants of an old magnetic poetry set.
There's a magnet of St. Francis of Assisi. And a magnet someone gave me with a funny description of my astrological sign. And one with a girl holding up a flute and piccolo, with the caption, "Size matters."
And another one showing 2 girls with the caption, "First, we get better grades than the boys. Then we take their jobs."
And my favorite - a magnet showing 2 tuna rolls on a bed, with the caption, "Wake up, Little Sushi."
And there's a photo of my beloved grandfather, who passed away 6 years ago.
And if you look closely, you can see a photo of the Fiance and me. But our faces are covered with an official United States Congress refrigerator magnet, which was a gift from the Sister (she works on Capitol Hill).
So what does the front of your refrigerator look like? Is it completely bare (like the refrigerator of a serial killer who just uses it to store chopped-up body parts, and can't be bothered), or covered with stuff like mine? If you have kids, do you keep their schedules on it? Do you keep a shopping list? #
