Tribute to My Curler

I think my appliances are trying to make it easier for me to let go. Yesterday morning my hot air curling iron went out in one big *poof*. The lights flickered and finally went out, there was a slight smell of smoke in the air, and just like that, my curler was gone.

I guess after so many years, it couldn't bare the thought of possibly being dragged off to New Zealand and being used with *gasp* an adaptor, while all along feeling "less than" the native electronic devices... only to eventually die a lonely death in a foreign land.

One less thing to carry. Sigh.

It's deffinately a sign that you need to just let some things go. I started with all new appliances in England, and you know what? They are WAY better. When I go to North America, I always find that the straighteners take for EVER to straighten. I think Kiwi's are more British than the Brit's themselves, so I'm sure their appliances will rock.

You are doing so well Tia. I am so excited for you!

I'm sorry about your curling iron. Its always sad to lose a good appliance. I will be devastated when my straightening iron departs this world.

There is a clinical name for assigning human qualities to inanimate objects :)...but as I glanced over at the number of days remaining until your new adventure...I won't be judgemental :)...I am so very excited for you!!!

Who dared to suggest that New Zealand doesn't have electricity? We have lots of it, so much of it that our voltage is twice the American voltage - and it will be so much easier to get new appliances without having to use a transformer.
Hope you get online quickly after the move!
