@86753oh9 - it's not (Beethoven's) Ode to Joy, it's (Bach's) Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. Which, I think, makes the story even funnier. I am jealous - my F-P dish drawers don't play anything.


Help, My Kitchen Is Possessed! When Appliances Act Crazy

I'm puzzled about the countertop. The article refers to it as stone with deep blue veining. I thought quartz countertops were engineered stone (Zodiaz, Silestone, Caesarstone.) I've never seen quartz with veining or in a color like that shown. I wonder if he means quartzite? The countertop in the photo looks like a blue-veined quartzite from Brazil, Azul Macaubas, which is indeed "ruinously expensive." Any way to find out?

I've had versions of the dream many, many times over the years. When I was very young, the triggering event was often falling in love (obviously I couldn't envision sharing my precious space!) My first apartment (very compact) was in a classic turn-of-the-century building full of wonderful characters who became my family. Moving to NY I gained more space, but I never severed my ties to my old building. I still return to visit my friends there from time to time, and to this day (30 years later) I occasionally dream that I am living once more in that apartment, always reconfigured in some fantastic way, yielding more space and interconnecting with neighboring apartments through previously undiscovered doorways.
