melissas and kitchens

there are about three things that i want to write about, but i'm fucking brain fried, so we'll do these two other things instead:

1. on facebook i just became friends with melissa david shortly before i became friends with melissa davis. how's that for synchronicity.

2. i tried turning on the gas for the oven today. the gas came out, but there was no ignition - no "click click" to ignite the gas into flame.

okay, fine. i'll just call about that tomorrow or something. i bought a microwave and some microwaveable food just in case something like this would happen. so i put some food into the microwave, attempt to heat it up, and yeah. microwave doesn't work. spins, lights are on, but no radiation.

good thing i found my can opener. yay for tuna sandwiches. now i think i'm going to have an italian water ice, the first italian water ice i've eaten in what seems like years.

yum yum.

Sometimes the oven won't ignite until there's a certain buildup of gas in the oven. Make sure your pilot light is on, too, because if it's not there can be gas leaking out constantly. (That happened at one of the apartments we owned when I was a kid, and a cat was tossed right out the window and into a bush below when the gas built up too much and the window popped out. The cat was unharmed and nothing was burned inside, so we assumed it had not been a flash fire.)

ps - you won't always hear a click-click of ignition because of permanent pilot lights.

My oven's gone out a few times too, and like terani said, just go through the broiler. I'm always afraid I'm gonna set my face on fire when putting the match back there, but so far eyebrows and all have remained in tact. :)

Mmm tasty water ice. What kind you get?
