Oh, hurray, I thought, reading The Ugliest Kitchen Contest ad, a chance to vent (we don’t have one) about all the problems in our kitchen, like the original (50+ year old) painted cupboards, the dungeon corner used only as a catch-all, the crazy sink position looking into a wall instead of at the window a few feet away, the open pantry-cum-broom closet, compost bin, dog and cat food area--all visible from the family room.
