Today the microwave oven died on us. No, actually it didn't just die but refused to perform its daily duties. The protest came in the form of light and sound: there were flashing yellow sparks coupled with loud crackling voice that said: "Ima release the Kraken!!" we pulled the plug immediately before Caramel was blown to smithereens. We soon realised we were back in the 1800s without a high frequency heating device.
