My gosh! This photo was on the front of the homes-for-sale section of my newspaper classifieds yesterday. Thought I had stumbled into a time machine to 1976. All this kitchen needs is some macrame plant hangers and a color-coordinated retro Rival crockpot full of melted Velveeta! You just know there's a foosball table in the next room. The woman's blouse screams "Quiana", that strangely slimy AND foamy synthetic non-breathing fabric I hoped we were over and done with forever.
The Oxford Concise Dictionary of Quotations attributes "It was déjà vu all over again," to Yogi Berra. It doesn't mention fondue forks.
