Uhmmm.. I think you've got it the wrong way round.. are you sure you live in America?
Aye, I'm sure I have it the right way around, even if I was on the side of hyperbole. We do have two of them though.

Bathrooms, that is. Two bathrooms but just one fridge.

You too? Maybe we should start a thread just for those people in the USA that haven't got sucked in by the mandatory oneupmanship attitude or marketing nonsense, and subsequently do not find 2 fridges absolutely necessary?

*Raises hand*

My name is Nutek... And I have only one fridge.

It's been 8 years since I bought my last fridge, but the temptation to raid it for tasty snacks never goes away.

Thank you for sharing. That's what this little group is about, and if we all support each other we can stay strong. I won't mention low calorie "light" beer, because that's jusst opening the (fridge) door to temptation.

Though, perhaps a mini-fridge for beer down in the basement wouldn't be stretching it too much.

What you choose to do in the comfort of your own home is entirely your business. But if said beer is Budweiser, then that really is sick.
