Say hello to my little friend

Get your mind out of the gutter.

Moving on, I fell in love with this line of refrigerators when I saw them for the first time at the Cayman Cookout, and now, thanks to an amazingly generous birthday present, one sits in my office at PT, chilling cans of Coke Zero for me.

Is not the SMEG a lovely bit of retro-inspired design?

I am very happy to have it as my new office mate.

In British English SMEG has an interesting meaning. Ref Red Dwarf

Yes, there are some unfortunate side effects of the name.

Dear Mark,

Yeah, I kept thinking of the family from the Monty Python sketch HOW NOT TO BE SEEN (or something to that effect).

What happened to the big refrigerator with soda for everybody?

As always,

Mark said...

Very nice; I also thought of that.

We still have that refrigerator. We just provide so many types of beverages that we were running out of space. I was the only one regularly drinking Coke Zero, and I don't drink it that often at work. So, for the greater good, I stopped requesting Coke Zero to free up space.
