So....this past weekend we noticed a strange smell coming from our kitchen. It smelled (at first) like the smell your oven produces when it's on the clean setting. The smell suddenly changed and resembled more of an electrical fire scent. Not good! In addition to the foul odor, we now had a strange noise to go along with it. After investigating all of our appliances we discovered that it was our overhead kitchen light (we have the ghetto 70's style with the long bulbs and all). So we open the cover to the light and it's producing smoke! Eak! So we're without half our light. Luckily, half of it seems to be working alright. It was just half of the connection. In any event, our kitchen is dim and it was out of commission for a few days. I guess I'll have to attempt most of my baking adventures during the day.
