Reminds me of the old joke about the lady doing a door-to-door survey on if and how people used Vaseline.

She was talking to one lady and finished asking the usual questions and then asked if the lady would mind answering some more questions of a personal nature.

The lady agreed and the first question was: Do you use Vaseline during sex?

Her answer was: yes.

The next question was: Do you use it internally or externally?

Her answer was: Externally.

When asked to elaborate her external use of Vaseline during sex, she replied:

Spoiler: show
We smear it on the doorknob to stop the kids from getting in.

The weird thing is that I put it in for the same amount of time and at the same temperature that I always do and I can't figure out why it turned out differently this time. :?

I was thinking something broke as well, or at least isn't working as well as usual.

or it was a little bigger then usual.

Arrived home after work yesterday to find Karen airing the house to get rid of the acrid burning plastic smell coming from the tumble dryer. Disconnected the plug and had a look - it appears to be terminal :roll: melted wires etc :shock: rather than a belt or something easy I could replace.
Prefer drying the clothes outside on the line, so the dryer is more used in the winter - though with last year's summer it got used more :lol:
So new dryer time. :evil:

same here chilli. its been an expensive time for appliances for us.

catch up, dont take this the wrong way, but does it need a deep clean. when our old one played up OH gave it one of his industrial strength cleans (bless him) and it cooked better again for a while.

Chilli, sorry about your dryer. :(

I don't think anything's broken on the oven, everything else seems to come out as expected. Rap, I think you may be right, maybe it was a little bigger than what I usually buy. Good point on the cleaning Spidey, I didn't think of that! Took a peek and except for a couple spots on the bottom, it seems to be mostly clean. I also noticed, for the very first time, that there's a button marked "clean". :shock: Who knew! I'm not going to push it until hubby's home too though. Just to be on the safe side. We have an unfortunate history of why-did-you-push-that-button incidents. :shifty:

I think the "clean" button may make the oven heat up to superheat and effectively burn off anything that shouldn't be there.

Arggggghhhhhh are you hiding under my bed dug? I literally watched that scene about an hour ago!
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.
