Find me on most of the social spaces as Mrs. Flinger
In an effort to launch something in a very short timeframe, after three months of coding in off hours for stints of a few minutes at a time, I used a framework to get *something* out. This is not code I would use for a client. Ever.
In fact, if you could see my face right now, you'd realize this is a little more than painful.
But, as sometimes has to happen with personal projects, the non-paying personal site takes a backseat to quality and gets dressed in handmedown code. Thanks to VMcore for the free ride here.
p.s. I predict LB will perfect the eye rolling at the two of you very soon (if she doesn’t do it discretely already).
LMAO - wow a garbage can, santa all in the same day huh?
And at first I thought I read
” We walked the entire store, searched through all Christmas products, candles, gifts that vibrate and massage,”
I thought it said Vibrators that Massage! Of course, my mind always goes to the gutter
But, please tell me you got the one like ours. The one with the itty bitty bathroom can that goes with. The one that holds three q-tips and a cotton ball in it before you can empty it.
Either way, I have the same can and I am sending you some Windex to keep it clean, cause I am anal like that.
P.S. Do you live anywhere near the Tulalip (or whatever) Outlets??
Oh yes, that is the king of cans!! We have one just like it, got it from costco I heart mine too!
Our can sits out in the kitchen as well and we are constantly fishing items out of it and asking each other if we meant to throw away this sippy cup or that plate. The 18mo loves “helping” us. Sometimes, she kisses it, just like in your picture. Ah yes, under the sink would be more practical but would it be as fun? Methinks not.
Heeeeyyy! I have the same garbage can!! From LNT! We just got ours too…it must be Purchase Garbage Can month or something.
You are one funny chick. That is one sharp looking garbage can
I’m a bit green that you saw Santa too.
My friend leaves her can out too and her toddler throws all kinds of interesting things in it. Like car keys, cell phones, visiting children’s shoes. Fun times, fun times. :D
Yep. Same garbage can here too and it does have the specific purpose of looking pretty in the kitchen.
No time to read your whole post, but just stopped in to say ‘Oh no you didn’t post a pic of you kissing your trash can!’.
That looks like ours. We needed something bc in Jays old apt their trash can was one of those giant ones that normal people keep outside and drag to the curb on trash day, it was gross.
I’m glad you found the garbage can of your dreams! Sometimes it’s the little things.
“Santa AND a garbage can in the same night! :: swoon :: ” - you are cracking me up over here!
love the garbage can by the way. but the search? not so much.
How’d you get Sandra Bullock over to kiss your trash can for you???
Too funny! We just had the garbage can talk yesterday. We have this medium sized white plastic one that was sitting out in the kitchen…It’s too big to go under the sink (nothing can fit in there, no matter what… one side is the plumbing part and the other is the disposal) yet it doesn’t have a lid so it’s a bit much getting to look at trash everyday in the kitchen.
Also we want to put in a little kitchen island cart thing, for more counter space (that’s a whole other topic) and the garbage can would therefore be in the way.
I said we need to find a nice looking stainless steel type of garbage can with a lid and then move it slightly over to the dining area, but it would then be a nice looking thing and yet still handy to get to. I would love one just like yours!! Alas, the simple solution was to put the can in the broom closet.
It is such a funny topic to blog about, yet there is so much to say about a garbage can. Who knew! When we moved I left my garbage can and I so miss it. It was a large green plastic one, but it had a lid, so it looked okay.
It is FUNNY when kids start throwing random stuff away… My youngest will throw stuff away he decides he doesn’t like (toys, papers, whatever), but my oldest would throw stuff away so he wouldn’t get in trouble… like if he broke something and he just wouldn’t tell us. Thankfully he is old enough to know better now.
Laura’s comment is too funny!!
Everytime I watch a Sandra Bullock movie it makes me think of Leslie! I’m glad someone else can see it, toO!
Kissing a garbage can? Ummmmm. Leslie. Umm. Blechhhhhh!
Ok. You people are officially my fave.
Sandra Bullock? SHUT UP. Marry me. All of you.
You’re cracking me up, girl!
I know that satisfaction in finding “the one.”
Took me TWO YEARS to find the shower curtain of my dreams.
