Exploding Frozen Coke

Check out what I get to deal with...

It seems my fridge is on the fritz. There is no longer any functioning thermostat to keep the fridge from going into deep-freeze mode. Everything in there is frozen solid unless there's enough alcohol in it to act as anti-freeze. Yay.

So the fun started on Sunday, when I opened the fridge to a similar looking nightmare. 4 glass bottles of club soda and one can of Coke had exploded and blasted miniature shards of glass everywhere that then froze to the surface of everything. Ask me how much fun that was to clean up. I had to take everything out one at a time, wash it off, put it on the counter, and then have at the fridge interior. It took a good hour to wipe all the frozen glassy mess away.

At that point, I noted that everything on the top shelf was solid and the beer on the bottom shelf was not, so I rearranged liquids to the bottom shelf along with the last can of Coke that hadn't exploded.

Then the next day, I wake up to exactly the same mess! That last damn can decided to burst it's contents everywhere too. Great. Now I get to do the whole cleaning routine again. It's really amazing how extensive the mess is from a single can on the bottom shelf. It's like a bottle of Diet Coke and some Mentos got it on in my fridge over night.

So - I needsa new fridge. I've been watching craigslist for the freebees, but no luck yet. In the mean time, I think I'll offer Cryogenic services to anyone requiring them.
