1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Came back from a vacation, woman is gone away for work, and we're moving in two months - all I have is about 15 bottles of different hot sauce, some shady looking condiments, and two big bottles of water, a huge stick of Elle de Vivre butter, two pretty sassy looking blue cheeses, plus a ton of Sainsbury's ice cube bags ready to go for my dog when it gets hot in the day, and lots of unidentifiables in the freezer.

    My hometown is about 10min away from here :facepalm:



    Mine is most like this: Link Without the crappy beer, more alcohol, more fruit, and more veg

    The bartender's fridge makes me wonder how long they'll live

    Yeah, I was gonna pick that one as well. First I saw his ex wife's fridge (assuming the two recently divorced after 33 years people who live in the same town and have very similar fridge habits were once a couple) and though it was closest to mine but lacking beer...then I saw his with beer (though less beer and crappier) and decided to take it.
    I didn't see that the first time around and then I was like WTF?
    It does appear to be her freezer...not sure that is any better though.

    That one guy, maybe 5 or 6 pictures in, looks like he has shirts in the lowest drawer.

    Funny thing is that the fridge of the blind person is cleaner than most of the others..
    #30 either eats very much or throws away half of what she buys...

    Ya I'd have to say that the locavores and organic conscious people buy far too much... they have too much produce for what one could realistically use while keeping that produce (you've no doubt paid a lot for) fresh and displaying its best qualities.

    this is soooo true, we joined a locavore produce group and we get our bin every Thursday, one week I got 5 huge and I mean HUGE heads of different lettuce, more garlic scapes that you can shake a stick at and an army of nice size kohlrobi then the cheeky bass turds gave us 3 medium size tomatoes and 1 slicing cuke. Our fridge is like one of those cartoon closets where everything falls out when you open the door.

    I know it has been a tough season up here but a little balance would be nice.

    It's probably not buying per se, as you would at a farmer's market. they're probably a part of a CSA and get delivered way too much.

    If you'd ever been to Marathon, TX, you would understand.

    Also, from number six, what is a food artist? Like a cake decorator?

    More likely it's someone that stages food for pictures. As in, a chef or whomever is making the plate actually makes the plate, and then the person makes it look perfect for photography.

    Some of them are sad. Heartbreaking, even.

    I'm a little confused how he finds the sodas, is it just a lottery? All in one row with mixed types

    I'm confused why anyone living alone needs 2qt 2% and 2qt nonfat milk.

    Reminds me that I really need to clean out my fridge though

    Aah, the glamorous life of a food stylist...

    what could be more exciting than pouring out 6 boxes of cereal and picking out the most uniform and perfect pieces? Pro tip---if you need ice cream in a shot (but aren't actually advertising ice cream), take an ice cream scoop to a tub of lard. It looks better and won't melt while you shoot.

    Some of these are truly abysmal. My fridge is most like #5, the person on the $432 monthly fixed income. I came home from vacation only to discover that I forget a pork loin in my meat drawer. The smell was nauseating, so I threw everything out and scrubbed the interior with bleach. In light of fridge #5, I feel pretty bad about my wastefulness.
