Walter Skinner in his underwear

Out with the old and in with the new...

Refrigerator, that is. I think the one in my house qualifies as an antique. When *were* bronze-brown refrigerators in style, anyway? I've polled several friends, and they all agreed: early 70s at the latest.

Said fridge has been dying a death for about a week now. It turned out to be a lot more difficult to replace than I expected, as all the cabinetry was built around it, and almost all new refrigerators are obviously made to match McMansions and super-sized SUVs.... i.e., almost everything I looked at was too tall, too wide and too deep to fit into the cabinet.

But I found one! It was delivered today.

Before it was hauled off, I denuded the old fridge of all the fridge magnets.

Now, if I knew how to do a poll - which I don't - I'd run a poll.

So I'll just ask this question.

1 - Shall I stick with "tasteful" fridge decorations (is there any such thing)?


2 - Shall I reconstruct the fannish portion of my fridge decor?

I have images of Spock, Kirk, McCoy, Holmes & Watson, Illya Kuryakin, Spike, Vinnie Terranova, Mulder & Scully, and...

Walter Skinner in his underwear...!

Should they adorn my fridge once more?

EDITED: The fridge magnets, sans a few mundane ones that I don't like anymore, have been restored, and Walter Skinner, in his underwear, occupies pride of place.


>>>If only the US government would follow suit...

I think that's going to take awhile longer, unfortunately.

One interesting, new development in the US that I've read about recently. Some portions of the Evangelical religious community - of all groups! have become interested in environmental issues, the idea being, the Earth is God's Creation, and that religious people have a responsibility for caring for it. Considering the influence certain religious groups have had on government policy recently, I'm very curious as to where this is going to lead.
I have long thought that this was a possible line for religious groups to take, so I am really glad to see the Evangelicals picking up on it.

After all, Noah was told to take two of every animal - this does not tally well with allowing species to go extinct.

I will be very interested to see how that one develops!
It certainly is a surprising development. Environmental interests are new territory for the Evangelical denominations.

One of the "mainstream" Christian denominations, the Episcopalian church (affiliated with the Anglican Communion) has been promoting an environmental policy for some time called "The Stewardship of All Creation."

I'm not religious, but my father was an Episcopalian minister, and I tend to follow what's going on with that particular denomination.
