I don't like change

What is up with this "new" blogger? I say "new" because it's probably been like this for months and I have been MIA. I don't like it - it seems like all kinds of extra clicking to me.

But in general I don't like change. I like things to stay where they are, the way they are. The main thing I don't like about different things is that they're different. I have learned to recognize that my initial dislike is just to the differentness and try to give it time to see if it's good or not.

The lazy susan I have used for spices for probably the last 15 years has bit the dust (although I suspect a dab of crazy glue[which, of course, I can't find] might make it all OK, but then it could not work and I'll be right back where I started with a broken lazy susan) so I tried something new. I hate it. I am going to find the crazy glue and if that doesn't work, I'm going to get some new crazy glue and try out that road. And then, and only then, will I get a new lazy susan. Because moving the spices to a whole new cabinet is just not going to work for me.

Search "spice storage" on Pinterest. Nice stuff, but hello? practical? It seems like a massive waste of time and resources to decant all my spices into something else and chalkboard paint them and whatever else. I had a big matchy-matchy spice spinner thing when I was first married and about 15% of them were used a lot, 80% were useless, and 5% were useful occasionally. Who cares if they all match if it's not what you need and have 17 other spices in the cabinet that you use all the time?

Which brings me to my main beef with Pinterest: massive lack of imagination. You know how people will have "GREAT IDEA, WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?" under a pin? Easy answer, that one: it's a dumb idea. It will take more time to do or enact than the benefit of having it done will be. Like those spray painted sliced up toilet paper rolls. They might look OK in the picture, but that's a picture. There's lighting and photoshop to consider. Imagine what it looks like up close: spray painted sliced up toilet paper rolls.

I imagine this is a rant for another day.
